7:05 pm
engaging in such activity but lift in an hour or two which is what happened in this case we've been in touch with him and have apologized for the inconvenience trump was quick to speak up on social media saying that it was a political move not motivated by alleged bot activity trump spoke up saying facebook google and twitter not to mention the corrupt media are so on the side of the radical left democrats but fear not we will win anyway just like we did before he also attacked the media as he often does when speaking to reporters during his meeting with balsa naro used the word collusion very loosely all the time and i will tell you there is collusion with respect to that because something has to be going on and when you get the back scene back office statements made by executives of the various companies and you see the level of. in many cases hatred they have for a certain group of people that happened to be in power. that happened to have won

the election you say that's really unfair conservative lawmaker devon newman is his at this point suing twitter saying that it discriminates against conservatives that it hides the message of conservatives and highlights libel and slander against conservatives at this point there is widespread criticism of social media outlets for the fact that they seem to have a huge amount of influence in crafting public opinion not only in the united states but around the world and many of the conservatives who are now criticizing social media money. they essentially argue that they're abusing that power. censorship of concerns are also being debated in australia on tuesday the country's largest telecoms company blocked access to a number of websites that are continuing to display footage of friday's mosque attacks in new zealand telstra gave a statement explaining the move. we have moved to temporarily block a number of websites that continue to host
7:07 pm
a friday's terrorist attack in christ church when the stand this may cause inconvenience for some legitimate uses of these sites but these are extraordinary circumstances and they're required an extraordinary response we appreciate that it is necessary to ensure free speech is carefully balanced against protecting the community but with these sites continuing to host disturbing content we feel it is the right thing to do to block them. tech companies and social media platforms are being asked to explain why they allowed videos of the massacre to be shown the authorities in australia are also investigating whether a number of national t.v. stations used the footage appropriately and in new zealand itself the three largest internet providers have temporarily suspended access to sites hosting images of the atrocity for about seventeen minutes the gunman live streamed the massacre on facebook of though the company says it worked to remove the footage it could still reportedly be found with relative ease hours after the shooting privacy activist

7:23 pm
this is incorrect about climate change. not by rule oh sure how can a democrat candidate get something wrong especially when his party essentially chose to rely on the so-called green new deal ahead of the election it's a set of proposals to address climate change it just can't lead down your next generation of voters it is a matter of faith and belief by guys like bedo and others who will walk out and say the world is going to end in twelve years and not receive any pushback and there's no laughter there's no one going well you've got to be kidding me there's no one standing up to them and say you've clearly lost your mind but you have a bunch of coreligionists of the room nodding and going yes it's terrible with must do something elections and in this country anyway or are not about convincing middle they're about turning out your base and keeping the other guy's votes home and if you want to turn out your base and you're a leftist candidate preaching about climate change and how the other side is
