An apology from an Apple analyst. Or something like it.

I know. I was just clarifying that I didn’t mean the same thing. Was talking about this issue, specifically.

There are people who are unhappy that Apple was slow to act against him and that when did, they left one random InfoWars podcast and the app available. Jones’ fans are obviously mad, as well.

So, Apple’s hamfisted decisions have left people on both sides of this issue mad due to inconsistency in enforcement, and turned an idiot into a martyr for the alt-right. Nice job, Mr Cook. Your only accomplishment is driving MORE traffic to InfoWars. 🙄

But if the line can be moved due to outrage and that keeps happening, then it will have an effect on what some people can and cannot see online. The people I’m talking about have never heard of RSS. But, hopefully this won’t continue to happen.

I know, and I exaggerated there. However, I don’t think the influence of all the major players can be ignored. They control what many people consider to be the Internet. If this stops with Jones, that’s not a big problem....

Sadly this is very true and somewhat disheartening. However, as a Libertarian, I still believe it is possible for such a society to exist someday.

If the line holds right where it is, then I’ll be the first to admit my argument is a tempest in a teapot. I just hope that it does and others don’t seek to keep pushing it becauer they see an opening.

Agreed. But, if this was a simple policy/rules decision, it would have been made LONG ago. Jones didn’t recently change how he acts online. This was caving to pressure and moving the line in response . That’s what worries me.

Look, I’m not saying that Apple or any other private company SHOULD be limited in how they control their platform. I just think it’s healthy to push back and question them on it. I want them and other very influential platforms to stay as open as possible.

I don’t disagree, but part of the reason I err on the side of free speech is because of bias. ALL people have biases no matter how fair and open minded they may think they are. It is easier to be open than to uniformly enforce rules because of the human element you mention here.

I wouldn’t call supporting free speech “sentimental.” It may not be required on private platforms, but I wholeheartedly believe it should be supported and encouraged. I also don’t think censorship should ever be applauded, even when the person censored is completely distasteful.

In some cases, and and I don’t disagree that rules should exist. However, I would say that isn’t really the case when it comes to Apple Podcasts, though. The existence of Jones there didn’t hinder or obstruct the availability of plenty of voices from the left on that platform.

They have the right to do it, but there needs to be healthy skepticism, because enforcement like that can be abused. Just look at Apple’s past with the App Store. They quite literally made policy up as they went along, and they still make reactionary decisions, on occasion.

Let’s all be honest right now. None of these companies took some ultra principled stand here. They made money off Alex Jones’ sad popularity and claimed he was within the rules until the pressure was too great. Then they all caved together. That’s NOT enforcing a uniform policy.

If this is still a far edge case in a couple of years, then so be it. I just have a hard time believing that people on the fringes of both sides won’t drum up outrage to see who they can remove through pressure after seeing this outcome.
