I am rather surprised that you do not have any problems with social media suppressing journalism for political purposes. Bad actors claiming without evidence that a politically damaging story is misinformation, no worse - foreign propaganda, and then preventing people from sharing it is nothing short of a scandal. To put it bluntly - Twitter and Facebook suppressed legitimate story from a major news outlet to provide Biden advantage.

I don't because social media is absolutely utter garbage that spreads missinformation at an insane rate and should not be the place people go to get informed. For better or for worse, its within their rights, because again, its their platform and they can do what they want with it. CBS has its own platform for getting news out to the masses, their tv channel and website. Same with the horribly biased conservative tabloid known as the New York Post.

So whats the alternative? Force a fairness doctrine? except there was one previously that applied only to broadcast licenses but not cable tv news. ie fox. Also the conservatives thought fairness was unfair to the right. Although to be fair, Broadcasters did find it overly burdensome as well.
What about the rights of these companies to their free speech? It's a tricky situation but as we've seen previously, ie Carlon's lawyers arguing in court that hes entertainment and that no sane person should believe the shit he says, how is that any better? He can go on air and lie to his viewers, but companies that don't want to spread misinformation are the arbiters of death for democracy and a free society?

His past work is not indicative of his current work and change in mindset and obvious biases.
