Another person is calling for conservative news sites to be deplatformed. Considering he is former executive for Facebook, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Facebook has been raging a war against free speech for several years now.
The assault on freedom of speech in America is accelerating, with a former Facebook executive calling for news outlets on the political right to be deplatformed by telecom giants including Comcast, AT&T and Verizon.
The stunning remarks Sunday came from Alex Stamos, the former chief security officer at Facebook, during an appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
“We have to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences,” Stamos declared.”
There are people on YouTube for example that have a larger audience than daytime CNN, and they are extremely radical and pushing extremely radical views. So it’s up to the Facebooks and YouTubes in particular to think about whether or not they want to be effectively cable networks for disinformation.”
Notice how he said that some youtube channels have more people watching them than daytime CNN and I expect that is the greater concern.
And on top of this, CNN is calling for Cable companies to cut conservative news outlets, such as Newsmax and Oann, from their service. Of course, these would also be CNN’s main competition, and Newsmax is already the fourth highest rated news service on Cable. READ: CNN Pushes to Close Down Newsmax TV
