    if they are a publisher and not a platform then they should be held liable for anything that is published not the individual publishing it.

    Facebook, YouTube etc., are privately owned distribution platforms, therefore they have the right to determine what can be distributed over their platforms, it's not censorship.

    No they aren't. Facebook and Google have received public funds.

    Even if they didn't it is still censorship.

    Censorship of ideas (Kiddie porn etc excepted) does more to diminish the reputation of the one doing the censoring than the one being censored. It indicates that they cannot be trusted to give you a full picture on any issue, not just the ones that they deem volatile.

    While both are public companies, only Google received government funding for research that was outside of YouTube.

    As such, they are not subject to any government regulations requiring open access to their platforms.

    This statement is totally false from the get go, no private company on the net is required to provide unrestricted access to their social media platforms.

    You understand nothing about the subject and as such proffer false and misleading information.

    If you disagree, find the associated regulations that require such, if cannot then put a lid on your lies.

    If you don't like that, bottom line get an education and go into the business yourself.

    So?

    None of this posturing is an argument.

    It's corporate censorship

    This isn't an argument about what is legal. Such an argument would be a waste of time.

    Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's right or good.

    So if you're a legalist you have no valuable input what so ever.

    The censorship of words is being carried out against conservative facebook users not the other way around

    Libs are the ones burning books these days

    LOL. Honestly now, I just love it when you deluded right wingers try so hard, so much in vain to win but you keep losing.

    Oh by the way, are you one of those deluded types who still believe Muslims go around screaming "F * * * K Jesus" ?

    Apparently a lot of leftists who want full control of private platforms.

    I understand that, but that's the way it is when one is preaching from another's soapbox.

    Personally I will always advocate letting the market solve the issue and never seek government intervention as that is the worse of two evils.

    We need no censorship of speech. We need education about how to deal with speech content.

    There is no censoring of speech from your platform, and it is flat out wrong to tell others how they must run their platforms.

    Government is most often used to crack down on conservatives not liberals

    What's so hard to understand about that statement, or do I need to write it out in crayon for you?

    What is not understood is how it applies to the quoted post. Where does the reference to platforms come from? How does the preaching about the wrong of telling others how their platforms should be run apply? It would seem you are addressing someone else.

    Set up your own platform then you cannot be censored, use someone else's and you are subject to the terms of use of that platform, if your content doesn't met that TOS removing it is not censorship.

    You do not have a 1st right on any non-public platform that is not your own property.

    Don't believe me, just post some pornography here and see what happens to your account.
