Re: It's all about the money

Not sure I get your point, your second paragraph makes a case for Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc... having some responsibility for what they publish then your third says that they should be exempt from this.

How about this example - a newspaper isn't obliged to publish all letters it receives from readers and could well get into trouble itself if it does. What's the difference between those and these west coast companies currently on a mission to demolish society apart from scale and a reluctance to police their publishing platforms?
