This article from the Free Beacon engenders a certain amount of concern from me. There are some scary statements in there. Let me point out a few of them:
the Biden administration endorses the “Christchurch Call,” a series of sweeping regulations to “eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online.” Governments that endorse the Christchurch Call support media “industry standards … to ensure that reporting on terrorist attacks does not amplify terrorist and violent extremist content.”
Can anyone think of how the press would have reacted to this statement if it had been made by the Trump administration?
According to DHS, warning signs that internet content may be the product of a disinformation campaign include a lack of “contradicting information” and articles that do not include the names of authors, a standard practice by news outlets such as the Associated Press and the Economist.
So first you claim to be targeting “online extremists” and then say that any article that doesn’t include the author’s name is a sign that the article is disinformation. Perhaps that author doesn’t want to be vzyali.
This is why I set up the server that is hosting this blog and others. It is only a matter of time before many voices are silenced.
