Bipartisanship? Republicans And Democrats Think Social Media Censors Political Speech 7/2/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

It seems that it’s not just Trumpers and conservatives that believe social media may be censoring political content.

A new poll from the Pew Research Center reports that more than half of Republicans believe it’s “very likely” social media including Facebook and Twitter censor political opinions they find “objectionable.” Even 20% of Democrats believe this too and 42% of Dems said it’s “somewhat likely.”

Overall, 64% of adults say that the big tech companies support liberal views over conservative ones.

If you’re the tech companies, this is really bad PR for you, and if you’re liberal, the question is if you feel that political content is being censored, will you stand for the free speech of those you don’t agree with?

I don’t agree with liberals on a lot of things, but I believe they have the right to say it so I can laugh.
