    “Attorney General William Barr is taking aim at a legal shield enjoyed by companies such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. as the provision comes under increasing fire from both liberals and conservatives.

    Barr has accused social media companies of hiding behind a clause that gives them immunity from lawsuits while their platforms carry material that promotes illicit and immoral conduct and suppresses conservative opinions. … ”

    later in the article:

    “Others argue that the law should be left alone, including the Computer & Communications Industry Association, a tech trade group that counts Google and Facebook as members. The Justice Department also plans to host private listening sessions.”

    So, while Goo-gul and FaceCrook didn’t individually argue that the law should stand unchanged, they didn’t use their great influence to object to the above objection (sic).

    Let those who still want to claim that Goo-gul and FaceCrook are NOT biased against Conservatives state how the Goo-gul ALGORITHMS work, in detail. With that (proprietary) information, we can discern their bias or lack thereof. Of course, we won’t get the algorithms from the social media giants…. which is like pleading for 5th Amendment legal protection.

    Did anyone notice the 32nd word in the first sentence of the first paragraph?
