Maybe we will all get our wish and something concrete will be brought out in court.

Dominion is suing the kraken for $1.3 billion in defamation, doesn’t rule out adding Trump to the suit.

Fox and Newsmax already had to retract all their Dominion andSmartmatic voter machine stories under threat of lawsuit.

It will be interesting to see how this goes down.

After the questions about Dominion Voting Machines arose Elections Canada watched as social media posts from Canadians began wondering if the last federal election had been rigged by the dubious voting machines. The tweets were linked to the U.S. election and unverified claims from U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies that automatic vote tabulators were to blame for his loss to Joe Biden.

In order to educate uninformed Canadians on Nov. 16, Elections Canada had to tweet that we only uses paper ballots counted by hand in a bid to educate Canadians. Fill them out with pencils we do. Little pencils like when you play golf.

On Nov. 17, Trump turned the tweet upside down by pointing to it as proof of the conspiracy against him. He said Canada does not use the machines because they are rigged and can not be trusted. Venezuela has a connection to the machines blah blah blah.

Federal Elections, by law use the paper and pencil. Provincial elections and every other election in Canada does use them and another automated tabulator.

Anyway Dominion has had enough and they are right ticked. They may sue Trump as well.

I didn’t pay much attention to the article but it does have the 120+ page court filing that makes for some interesting reading detailing out the nefarious history of powell’s claims, people who signed the affidavits and some of the so called expert witnesses.

SD....

It will be interesting to see if Domion wins or not.

Because it will be the same for Twitter, Facebook, CNN, etc. All of these "news" networks or media. Yes FACEBOOK has a "news" feed or link.

This all goes back to CNN getting sued by the Covington kids.

Hey I am all for this if people don't get "reliable" stories and just go off on a whim (which 99% of media is now) they should be held liable. Just like I stated awhile back that I could have a "source" and that could be the local drunk sitting on the corner bar stool. But I dont have to "name" the source or anything. Just call it "reliable". I am if you want to get to it.... a "reliable" source that works at the Whitehouse... could be a janitor! :poke:

I believe Biden has come out as against section 230 as well.

Thats no surprise, and I suppose the RINOs doing nothing shouldnt surprise me either. They are really more democrat, but run as reoublicans because they come from communities where a democrat cant win.

I thought I read that everyone in congress has issues with Section 230. It is just they can't agree what to do. Also I read that the Dem's wanted to "wait" to do something after the election. Again that last statement could be bogus....but I know I read that somewhere. SOmething along the lines of lets address this after the election to give it better thought.

But all sides see how this is an issue with freedom of speech. It is scary that some citizens are too blinded to actually see how this is a huge issue and should scare the hell out of everyone.

This shows you how all of this stuff with Twitter, Facebook, etc with the censoring also with them "cancelling" Parler. Should scare the hell out of everyone.

It is what I have been talking about. A few controlling what we the people see for information and opinion. BTW... most of these "big tech" people dont lean towards the conservative side of the spectrum... or even float around the middle. That is why I keep saying....who is the party closer to the Nazi's of germany and who is controlling the information the people get.... it isn't conservatives. :thumb:

I think it's funny that now they are worried about this and monopolistic power of some companies.

Where have they been as the meat packing, agriscience, phone and other industries have been consolidated into just a few mega companies.

They have brought law suits and reigned down legislation on those industries when companies "tried" to monopolize. But with "technolongy" and Section 230.... they gave these companies protections, tax benefits, grants to move forwards, etc. Now those companies are monopolizing or were not getting treated the same as the ones you listed.

BTW... with the businesses or industries you listed.... how many of them are trying to control information, news, speech, etc??? NONE OF THEM.

Is funny you go right to "whataboutism" instead of acknowledging the problem. :eyeroll: If you dont think they crack down... look at the whole 5G stuff. Look at how they did crack down on cell phone companies from "merging".... look how they regulated the beer industry. Pretty much INBEV owns budwieser, miller, and I believe Coors..... but yet they put regulations on them so they can't "inflate" prices, cut out the other brands, etc. But this is a different subject....

But this is a huge issue with Big Tech.... and like I keep saying... They all know there is an issue it is just that they dont agree on what to do or "when" to do it. One side didn't want to do anything before an election because of certain reasons.... that we dont know.

BTW.... anyone see the interview with I believe 60 Mins.... where Pelosi goes off and says... SHE DIDNT HOLD UP AID for the people... but then in the next breathe says she did hold up aid. :eyeroll:
