The New York Times says that the First Amendment is a threat to Democracy. Oddly, it was published on January 6, which is a convenient coincidence. How fortuitous. Almost like the events of that very evening were planned.
Five days later, the Financial Times takes it a step further and demands that the media censor companies like Fox News:
the president’s supporters were using both mainstream and more niche platforms to plot further violence. That justifies moves by Apple, Google and Amazon to restrict access to Parler, the “alt-tech” Twitter alternative beloved of the radical right.
There is definitely a movement underway to squash free speech.
