Biden Targeting Online Free Speech
Article from Reason by Eric Boehm.
In an effort to force Facebook to change its policy towards negative ads targeting his campaign, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is apparently willing to trash the federal law that guarantees free speech online.
It’s the latest sign that even supposedly liberal centrist politicians are willing to join forces with the far right to rewrite the rules for online speech.
Biden’s campaign and Facebook have been feuding for weeks over Facebook’s policy of allowing political campaigns to buy ads on the site to spread possibly false information. In a letter to Facebook last month, Biden’s campaign called on the social media site to reject political ads containing “previously debunked content”—like a Trump campaign ad linking Biden and his son, Hunter, to corruption in Ukraine.
In response, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company’s policies were “grounded in Facebook’s fundamental belief in free expression, respect for the democratic process, and the belief that, in mature democracies with a free press, political speech is already arguably the most scrutinized speech there is.”

Guess what Biden, your screwed. There Never was a True investigation into Burisma, your son Hunter And Yourself. Get USED to it. Put your big boy pants on and s uck it up.
we you conspiring with other throw backs of the human race
Mad dog Biden has been Trumped so to speak.
Hey Joe, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen!!
I can understand why the power abuser and crook Biden doesn’t want ads talking about his son and himself and their nefarious dealings in the Ukraine.
There is no “”previously debunked content”—like a Trump campaign ad linking Biden and his son, Hunter, to corruption in Ukraine.” because the belief of your and your son, Hunter’s corru7has never been fully investigated because as you bragged you got the Ukraine prosecutor fired before the investigation was completed.
“Sleepy Joe” Biden has been a washed up Democrat since 1988! Obama used Joe as his gaffing court jester for 8
He was useless way before that.
Slow Joe: I conclude you protest too much about unwanted public interest in your and your son’s behavior in selling your country out for money that certainly exceeded thirty pieces of silver. Relax King Rat, the press wil smother the facts of your and your prodigal son’s greed and criminality from the voters.
They definitely will ignore all of it but the word is already out and sniveling Joe can’t stop it since he bragged about it openly.
Joe Biden is willing to sacrifice American principles and freedoms for his own gain just like his more radical Democrat peers. Actually, Joe Biden is proving to be just as radical as his heretofore apparently more radical peers. A vote for Joe Biden (or any other Democrat) is a vote to abrogate our hard-earned American rights and freedoms.
Couldn’t have said it any better especially now that he’s going senile and demented which is the reason why they’re pushing him to run. They want a monkey that’s controllable.
You say, “Biden’s campaign called on the social media site to reject political ads containing “previously debunked content”—like a Trump campaign ad linking Biden and his son, Hunter, to corruption in Ukraine.” That’s funny, because I don’t remember ANY investigation into Hunter’s and Joe’s Quid Pro Quo bribery corruption in Ukraine,
which is way more provable than Trump who never did this. What? Nobody cares that a candidate (Biden) running for President ACTUALLY DID (what they are accusing Trump of) offering a bribe which Biden confessed to ON A VIDEO RECORDING. What? We are going to impeach Trump and then elect a proven corrupt Biden who actually DID BRIBERY…somethings messed up!
Joe is not merely concerned about “possibly false information”, he’s MORE concerned about people learning the actual truth.
Come on, Joe. You’ve made your millions in government service and provided for even more millions for your son. Time to retire and let some other corrupt politician get up to the feeding trough.
