Consortium of Media Giants Oppose Free Speech If FaceBook brands you "extremist" you could automatically be banned by YouTube (Google), Twitter, and Microsoft too.
Web giants YouTube , Facebook , Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database. The companies will share 'hashes' - unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos - of extremist content they have removed from their websites to enable their peers to identify the same content on their platforms.The obvious problem is their definition of "extremism" is subjective. They have a duty to responsibly prevent people from the equivalent of shouting "fire" in a crowded movie theater. So, they must take a first amendment balance.
However, they do not consider far left propaganda extreme, rather, they consider it "politically correct" speech, and instead, they harshly censor libertarian free thinkers.
YouTube even censors well known Libertarian PragerU, as seen in this screenshot taken this date.
What does PragerU do? "We help millions of people understand the fundamental values that shaped America...These values are Judeo-Christian at their core and include the concepts of freedom of speech, a free press, free markets and a strong military to protect and project those values...
Yes, your sources from FaceBook to Twitter tilt strongly towards the left-0-sphere. In a well-documented controversy, Facebook's Zuckerberg held a rare meeting to address valid concerns of oppressed libertarians and other censored conservatives.
Only a few days after that, Facebook was "up to its old tricks of silencing conservatives and right-wingers." in this case, banning a Libertarian Defending Free Speech.
Facebook buckles to the "mob justice' approach, and it only takes one complaint on FB And Twitter.
