When providing a public platform, especially one which is known to have a significant political influence, it is essential that such a medium is responsibly well balanced and offers the partisans and disciples of all shades of political and religious opinion equal opportunity to express their views.

If the controlling body of any giant and powerful social medium is politically biased towards one particular political ideology then this partiality should be openly declared along with an honest proclamation that opposing views will either be misleadingly revised to show favor towards the editor's opinion, or denied publication altogether.

Whilst many will object to any dominant medium having prejudiced political preferences this type of open and honest transparency will be respected, or at least should be respected by all reasonable people and let everyone know where they stand.

Such professional conduct represents the acceptable face of capitalist free enterprise.

Any form of concealed propaganda is usually in the domain of, and bears all the hallmarks of the leftist woks.

Hello N:

Of course it should. The question is, will it, without being forced?

I am unaware of the existence of any legislation requiring all media publications or public discussion platforms to offer equality of opportunity to all currents of opinion.

Until such laws come into existence we must rely on the integrity and fair mindedness of the management of such organizations.

Clearly, at this moment in time these ''best business practices'' do not exist in the radical leftist mediums of Face Book and Twitter.

Do try to become more mature in your posts.

Do you have free speech rights on my property?

Hello ex:

If Twitter was my property, I'm the guy, the ONLY guy, who decides what speech goes on my property and what doesn't.

What?? I thought right wingers LOVED free enterprise. No, huh?

I'm all for free enterprise. What should pop into your brain is that your party wants to censor anyone who disagrees with them. The right doesn't want or need you censored. When your ideas make sense & can easily be defended, & you aren't a raging control freak, you don't need to censor anyone. Totalitarians & people with indefensable ideas need to censor others.

ABC is private property owned by someone. They are still subject to laws concerning politics, in kind campaign contributions, and equal time given to candidates. If CNN or Fox News gives time to Donald Trump or Joe Biden, they are required by law to do the same for the other candidate. Twitter has blocked comments and even accounts of politicians during elections which clearly violates this statute.

Hello T:

The issue before us is NOT ownership, but whether it's "the press", as delineated in the 1st Amendment, or not. ABC is the press.. Twitter is not.

"The equal-time rule specifies that American radio and media must provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it. This means, for example, that if a station gives a given amount of time to a candidate in prime time, it must do the same for another candidate who requests it, at the same price if applicable."

Hello again, T:

The problem with your argument is that my property is NOT "radio" or "media". It's a website. Consequently, and pursuant to the law, the equal time rule does NOT apply.

Now, congress CAN do something about that and probably WILL.. But, until then, my property is my property and government can't run my property..

Yes. I can be walking in your yard or be in your car and call you anything I want. Are you planning to kill the next person who practices free speech in your vehicle or something?
