Careful!

Corporations Like To Control Speech


Corporations Like To Control Speech

Facebook, Twitter, and MSNBC all have a thing about free speech. They don't seem to like it very much.

There are countless news articles about how Facebook aka Mark Zuckerberg, and Twitter are censoring political speech they don't like.

Now, news outlet MSNBC has "parted ways" with one of their host's because of her remarks about the network. Personal opinions are not welcome, it appears. But, isn't the authoritarian left supportive of free speech?

"MSNBC has parted ways with host Melissa Harris-Perry after she complained about preemptions of her weekend program and implied that there was a racial aspect to the cable-news network’s treatment, insiders at MSNBC said.

Harris-Perry refused to appear on her program Saturday morning, telling her co-workers in an email that she felt “worthless” to the NBC-owned network. “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” wrote Harris-Perry, who is African American. “I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by [NBC executives] or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back.”"

That network employs plenty of rabid racists, they can lose one and still be a festering cesspool of Leftist groupthink.

True! I think they are so crazy liberal, they should be described as churches of liberal extremism.

Someone else who likes to control speech:

Donald Trump.
Quote:
"One of the things I'm going to do if I win... I'm going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money," Trump said during a rally in Fort Worth, Texas.



"We're going to open up those libel laws so when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they're totally protected," he said. "We're going to open up libel laws and we're going to have people sue you like you've never got sued before."

They came for the Clinton haters, but I was not one and so said nothing. Then they came for the Cruz haters, but I was not one and so said nothing.

What's next? Trump is coming for you.

Nothing new, they will do whatever they can get away with to make more money, if posts put people off using the service they will stop those that are posting the offending posts.

Are you against capitalism?

Do you think Governments should control Private industry?

You are sounding like a Commie.
