After celebrating the retirement of Paul Ryan, Tim digs into the new fusion of Facebook with big government. Mark Zuckerberg was all too happy to accept new regulations. Why? Because big business LOVES big government. Regulations on any industry are written with the help of the leaders of that industry. Social media will be regulated by the federal government, and it WELCOMES it!
Have conservatives played into the hand of Facebook? The right has been calling for social media to be regulated due to censorship, blocking, and demonetization. They asked for this! The left did too. They called for regulation after blaming the election of Donald Trump on “fake news” and “Russian influence”. Perfect. Both sides want regulation, and Mark couldn’t be happier.
