    New executive order

    Post by SoxIlliniRob on Fri Sep 21, 2018 11:26 pm

    Trump just issued a new exec order that the Feds can now regulate Facebook and Google because they got tired of how anti-Trump they were (allegedly).  Two private companies being told they have to change their product to conform to the GOP's desire for some kind of perceived fairness.  LOL.  I'm sure that'll hold up in court.

    I guess deregulation only applies for some.


    I'd estimate my Facebook feed displays pro-Trump material 3-4 times more than anti-Trump material.  If Facebook is trying to regulate against Trump, they suck at it.


    Of course, my feeds are partially being responsive to what I click to read.  Like watching an accident, it's difficult to turn away from some of the material that's presented.

    Nice to finally see you here, Jay.  I rarely see pro-Trump stuff on FB.  Maybe that's because the bulk of my "friends" are not pro-Trump.  FB used to just offer me links to articles to read in my feed.  Now they don't do that.  I only see what people like Rosebowl or Blchrbum share into their feed.  

    It's insane to me to think you could force FB or Google to be more fair, unless they are going to force Brietbart and Drudge report to be more fair.  Since when does a news source or a search engine have to conform to any standards of equal time or someone else's perception of fairness?
