Big Tech and government can pose problems. / IMAGE: ABC News via YouTube ( Tony Sifert , Headline USA ) On April 18, former members of the so-called “Intelligence Community” sent an open letter to Congress in an effort to stop pending antitrust legislation ( S.2992 , among others) that would prevent Big Tech companies from using their online platforms to kill competition.
The letter was published online by Punchbowl News the next day.
In the letter, the former intelligence officials make the flamboyant claim that “there is a battle brewing between authoritarianism and democracy,” and they praise Big Tech for having “accelerated their partnership with the U.S. government.”
The writers warn, however, that “U.S. policymakers must not inadvertently hamper the ability of U.S. technology platforms to counter increasing disinformation” with legislation like the aforementioned American Innovation and Choice Online Act.In other words, as Glenn Greenwald wrote in response to the letter, […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
