“A jury in the civil suit against Alex Jones has determined that the online agent provocateur and supplement enthusiast must shell out $45.2 million in damages for the pain and suffering he caused the Sandy Hook families. This outcome arose independent of the widespread deplatforming and censoring that Jones has faced in recent years, and shows that sometimes “the system” DOES work the way it’s supposed to.

Jimmy and his panel of The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether this jury decision represents justice being done and shows that censorship is never the answer to “problematic” speech.”

This mirrors my own views.

“Facebook reportedly has 40,000 individuals on staff involved in so-called “content moderation,” and one of the most fertile breeding grounds for these professional censors is the Central Intelligence Agency. According to a recent Alan MacLeod piece in MintPress News, ex-spooks are littered up and down the chain of content moderation command at Facebook, further blurring the line between Facebook as a private company and Facebook as a partner of the government in silencing inconvenient voices that oppose the dominant establishment narrative.

Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the dangerous ramifications of having a team of ex-intelligence officers determining what Americans can and can’t see on social media.”

…What a shit head.

“You will be shocked to learn that Facebook – excuse us, Meta – has quietly launched an astroturf front group to plant opinion pieces and run television commercials opposing legislation that would regulate the tech industry. But to maintain credibility, Facebook made sure its name was not associated with the campaign in any way.

Jimmy speaks with American comedian Kurt Metzger about Facebook’s hamfisted efforts to push propaganda opposing antitrust legislation.”

With Net Neutrality Gone Zuckerberg, Musk, and Bezos Have Free Rein in Their Internet Oligopoly…

“After the FCC eliminated Net Neutrality under Donald Trump’s administration, it opened the internet up to oligarchs like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos to divide up the world for themselves. Elon Musk’s recent attempt to buy Twitter and everything currently happening in the Metaverse are clear examples of this.

This might be great news for the likes of CNN and Fox News since they have political connections willing to write legislation to help them, but it might spell the end for independent journalists like Status Coup. Suppression and censorship are nothing new to the internet, but for now it’s “Very legal and very cool.”
