THREAD: This article in the @nytimes by Tech reporter @kevinroose manages the unholy trio of the Big Media/Big Tech collusion: defamation; de-platforming & discriminatory gatekeeping. First, it defames @RubinReport @benshapiro & @jordanbpeterson. 1/ nyti.ms/31i5LxM
Note HOW it defames @RubinReport @benshapiro & @jordanbpeterson: by a method mastered by @nytimes: smear by innuendo, using an image to visually associate in your mind each w/ the rolling headlines: "far-right" "conspiracy theories" "misogyny" "racism" "far-right" "brainwash" 2/
Media believe they can use affiliative terms, vague inflammatory language & visual images to libel-by-innuendo w/o consequence, especially in headlines. In fact, libel law does not allow libel by headlines, even if the substantive portion of an article says nothing about them. 3/
Why libel? To make sure big tech acts as a discriminatory gatekeeper by 1) Big Media defaming those who provide a platform to independent ideas & 2) demanding Big Tech (here, @youtube) manipulate its algorithms, monetization & access to de-platform views the left doesn't like. 4/
Why de-platform dissident opinions? Take a look at what the @nytimes labels "radical": a young man calling himself a trad-con (traditional conservative), who, HORROR, HORROR, "dated an evangelical woman," "fought with liberal friends," and even was happy Trump won! 5/
