Liberals are aghast at Elon Musk’s motion to free Twitter: how can we get alongside with out censorship? Individuals may say dangerous issues about Saint Fauci!
However People are squarely in Musk’s nook. Rasmussen finds a rare stage of concern about censorship on social media websites. Nearly everybody believes that political censorship is occurring:
The newest Rasmussen Stories nationwide phone and on-line survey finds that 77% of Probably U.S. voters imagine it’s probably that social media corporations like Fb censor information and commentary due to political bias, together with 52% who assume it’s Very Probably. Solely 14% say it’s unlikely social media websites are participating in political censorship.
And a big majority don’t prefer it:
Seventy-two p.c (72%) assume censorship by social media corporations is a significant issue, together with 49% who say it’s a Very Significant issue. Twenty p.c (20%) don’t assume it’s a significant issue.
Understandably, then, 66% of voters approve of GOP plans to analyze social media censorship, whereas solely 26% disapprove.
The identical survey exhibits that Republicans assume censorship is an even bigger downside than “misinformation,” whereas Democrats assume “misinformation” is an even bigger downside than censorship. The confounding reality is that almost all Democrats appear to assume that something they disagree with is misinformation. Whereas, however, I don’t imagine I’ve ever seen a single Democrat cite the Russia collusion hoax–the nice disinformation marketing campaign of our time–for example of misinformation.
In any occasion, whereas he could also be enraging liberals, Elon Musk has the big majority of People on his facet.
