Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FBN’s ‘Cavuto Coast to Coast’ To Discuss Twitter Banning Conservatives

According to Dhillon:

I personally written to the general counsel, informed her of suspensions inappropriate under their rules of a client of mine on two occasions. I never got a response. You know, they’re fully aware of this happening. I know it from my personal experience. This is disappointing to see business leaders lie like that but they’re aware of the issue. I think they are going to be forced to do that. You had a segment about Facebook pivoting doing something different because they anticipate more regulation. All these companies enjoy immunity from suit which is premised on them being a neutral platform, not censoring yet they’re all getting in there, censoring claim for user experience and then protect people on the Internet but, for an example, Facebook five years ago would take off a post if it was personally harassing or threatening an individual.

Today Twitter and Facebook and Google will ban speech if it offends or may offend an entire category of people. That is censorship. That is china-style censorship. It does not belong in America. These companies need to choose. If they want immunity from suit they need to be neutral. If they want to be publishers, they should be treated as publishers like fox, “New York Times” and others. If they engage in manipulation, lie, false, censor don’t honor terms of service which these companies are not doing they should be held liable for that.  I mean it sounds good but honestly are you going to trust Facebook or Twitter with your money when you can’t trust them with your privacy? I am not. That is big stretch.  You’re absolutely correct in your prior segment in some cultures people are habituated with having no privacy, that is not America. I don’t want it to be America. We need to find a different way than what is being proposed.
