I'm not saying Alex Jones doesn't have the right to express his views, I just wouldn't allow him to do it from my porch... MY porch where I might allow someone else whose views I didn't find wack, or offensive to speak from.
That's not censorship. Nor would it be censorship had I allowed an "Elect Clinton" sign in my yard, but didn't allow Trump campaigners to put an "Elect Trump" sign in my yard.
It's MY property so I get to decide what gets communicated from it.
If I don't agree w your mssg or if I find it offensive.... You have every right to speak it but you're going to have to share it somewhere else.
Slice it however you like, that's not censorship. That's me EXERCISING MY RIGHT to have the final word over what gets said from MY PROPERTY.
I get the point you and some others hold regarding "censorship" under the law typically seen as the Govt. censoring or creating laws that would infringe on our rights.
My disagreement with it is based on the changing world we live in and how/where we get our information...
These companies are some of the largest world-wide outlets for that. I think it's a dangerous line to walk where a few have so much control over content. But as we are already seeing people will push back and I believe these companies will face their own consequences for these decisions... it's already starting. Maybe it will be a good thing in the end.
