This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 73%. (I’m a bot)

Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte advised his daughter against running to succeed him in the 2022 election, saying the presidency “Is not for women.”

In a televised speech on Thursday, the president said Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte “Is not running” in the next election even though a recent survey by Pulse Asia Research Inc. showed she was the top pick to succeed him.

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

Google admits to running ‘experiments’ which remove some media sites from its search results : worldnews

We are constantly working to improve the search. While we may not get it right every time, we are constantly working to prevent poor quality or irrelevant content from showing up in your search results.

If sources consistently provide inaccurate, malicious, or inaccurate information, it seems like Google's mission to remove it.

EDIT: If Google executives had reason to believe that this information was "poor quality" or "irrelevant" because it was consistently false / fabricated, they were required to their shareholders to remove it as that was the business model and the mission is that their shareholders have bought into too. Not to mention that they could potentially be held liable.

Adolf Hitler Cult Caught Running Submachine Guns for International Drug Traffickers — A year-long investigation into a black-market trade in automatic weapons led investigators to a Spanish warehouse set up as a shrine to the Nazi leader : worldnews

Well you cant deny the gun manufacturing part or the nazi paraphernalia part but what you can deny is the term “shrine” being used because that is for one not a shrine to hitler and second that’s usually how military antiques are displayed. Dont know if thats a language translation error on the word choice or just a intentionally shitty word choice by the J*urnalist. Maybe im not getting the full “picture” of this article because im getting paywall blocked but I scoured that article for proof of a “Adolf hitler cult” and i got nothing nor could I find a picture of hitler in the video in a “shrine to the nazi leader”. Overall I hate this article on its Scheer garbage word choice and misleading title and the paywall.

The German Chancellor said that freedom of opinion should not be determined by those running online platforms : worldnews

How did Obama or Bush communicate without Twitter because you know that?

Why did you quote Obama of all people? He was known for pioneering the use of Twitter in election campaigns.

Also, I find Reddit's weird flip-flop to testify to the extent of corporate power over the political process pretty staggering – what do we do if Cambridge Analytica stole the election? Twitter's control of our political process is scary and has no oversight "to" lol it's just a private company, they can just do what they want ".

Where does this argument end? Did Amazon remove you from AWS? Lol just build your own internet. Have you disconnected Mastercard / Visa from your payment systems? Lol just build your own financial architecture.

I mean the hypocrisy on both sides is amazing, from the right "lol it's a private company if you don't want to bake a gay cake then go somewhere else" to their reaction on twitter but from the progressive side it is equally bad.

You should all be goddamn scared, I understand Trump is fucking cruel and tried to stage the shitty coup ever, but the precedent is now set. The illusion that Section 230 and internet platforms are impartial content hosts has been shattered. It won't end. This website welcomes the death of the internet in its current form.

The inability of some people to put their (legitimate) hatred of Trump aside for a second and ponder the consequences of that and think maybe more than 10 minutes into the future is mind-boggling. The unbridled cheer, glee, and hubris only remind me of responding to literally everything the Bush administration did after 9/11.

Edit: I assume that if this precedent is used to remove anti-capitalist, left-wing revolutionary, dissident left-wing individuals / organizations from platforms, this website is going to give a shit. You will lose your mind and suddenly it will be about the overreach of social media platforms and naked interference in the political process. The same people who uncritically welcome this will turn around and not see the connection.
