Re: Blumenthal educating a shitlib on the Brand baloney
Huh, v weird line of questioning from BJG, a distraction from the main point and she wouldn't let it go. Don't know if she was playing devil's advocate but usually I would expect better. Obviously demonetisation has a chilling, censorious effect even if content isn't outright deleted. Probably Brand has many other sources of income, but with 65m viewers (if I remember rightly) that's going to be a big hit, and clearly unjust when based on allegations untested in a court of law. Then she kept trying to get Max to say what would be appropriate intervention from a social media platform if allegations were proven. WTF? Why would anyone want to give them that kind of power? They should only be able to intervene in straightforward cases of criminality - in the content itself, not what happens offline - otherwise it's none of their f*ing business! Gray is enabling the thought police with this kind of approach. Thankfully Blumenthal got back on track and made the main important points.
