Presidents can't give power to agencies that they don't already have by statute and regulation.

Not censoring is a basic requirement.

It should be noted that social media companies don't want to censor, for three reasons: (1) it's really costly and labor-intensive, (2) even with the money and the labor you won't be successful, and (3) no matter what you do (or don't do), critics will scream.

You believe they don't want to censor? Mark Zuckerberg is quite outspoken about how he wants to! The political benefits are quite too obvious.

Well, I do get paid to know what I'm talking about, for what it's worth. I don't think Zuck's various pivots and volte-faces tell us much. I've been studying the issue for about 30 years now.

Of course I'm not going to learn that. Are you seriously claiming you know some technicality that makes censorship all right? Why don't you at the same time advocate abolishment of democracy? This is an issue of you not understanding basic priority!

You're probably not going to learn anything at all until you study the issue. I know you imagine you're a free-speech advocate and everything, but you're not one yet. You're probably capable of it, but you need to do the hours. It will require a lot of reading, but it's worth it.

You don't get that we are not talking about the same issue do you? Ethics! Manipulation of core functions in a democracy is unacceptable!

I've written a number of more recent pieces arguing for an industry-wide code of ethics that includes fiduciary obligations to users.

If you think comparing me to Hitler works, you must be new to the internet.

Where did I mention Hitler? Is this a Freudian slip?

There you go. US free speech. It's a myth, McCharty. If you knew the rest of the world.

Just pretend you're conservative then you'll be ok with it. Just like all those "concentration camps."

Kim think no one in the United States has ever worked on international internet and human-rights issues.

Probably a good idea, going forward, to read the articles you post links to.

The fact of the concentration camps has nothing to do with whether one is conservative (or pretending to be conservative). They're there. They meet the definition. We can't abandon the plain meaning of the term just because some yahoos on Twitter think they're Reich-specific.
