Facebook vs alternative media

A warning from We Are Change.

It is with deep sadness and justified anger that we must report that Facebook has now unpublished some of the largest alternative media pages around! Included in this Orwellian information purge are Press For Truth, The Anti-Media, and The Free Thought Project just to name a few in a move that took down 599 pages and 251 accounts. We have had a close working relationship with many of these organizations.

What do we know about these organisations? This is We Are Change and this is The Free Thought Project.

    Wall Street calls Facebook one of FANG. They aren’t interested in alternatives.

    Private enterprise exercising their rights is not “Orwellian”.

  3. Catallaxy Files should exercise a bit of free enterprise regarding the resident hollow vessel. What’s there to lose?

    Nothing of much substance

    Stand back and wait for the squealing. The rest of us would rejoice indeed.

    An in house example of how participation awards create entitled narcissists.

    Bring on the war. The Left want it. The sensible centre need it. Just don’t make it too civil.

    Luke Rudkowski is a moderate lefty, it is pretty bad if even he is being censored.

    I see that you’ve prepared yourself for engaging with free enterprise. But couldn’t you come up with anything more original than another ‘I am…’?

    That’s not me obviously, as he’s agreeing with you. I think. It’s hard to tell because you people are absolute morons.

    Also this thread went about as expected. A bunch of politically illiterate leftists, that spend their time on what is supposed to be a right-wing blog for some reason, whining that websites kicking people off is “Orwellian”, while at the same time calling for people to be kicked off websites.

    The level of total confusion and ignorance required to type the responses that my first post received is breathtaking, but par for the course at the Cat.

    My mistake try ‘As an….’

    Also I confess I got inspiration for my name from JC and Imp.

    My mistake try ‘As an….’ was for Imps benefit not bemused. The poor lad has such bad social skills it has to be spelled out to him.

    The left is evil and must be treated as such at every point. Their demands for free speech, free association, civility, cooperation and all the rest are one-way streets. We submit to their ideas, they flatly reject ours and then punish us for holding them. People on the right who deal with them as honest opponents are part of the problem, the left are scorpions.

    If the Doom Lord and Cat meisters of catallaxy didn’t have full-time jobs they should just beef up their servers and offer web hosting to free speechers and start generating ad revenue in the long run. Remember ultimately Google Facebook Twitter etc adjust giant advertising agents and use other people’s contents for free to attract the customers that allow them to charge big bucks for advertisers. It’s just about the way every start up works now, offer a free service get people signing up karma generating content and interest and then monetize ( and usually give the content generators nothing in return).
