Douglas Murray, author of “The Madness Of Crowds,” joined The Federalist’s Ben Domenech on Fox News Primetime to discuss the dangers of Big Tech censorship Friday night.
“These companies—that assume the right to decide what you and I can know, read and say—are nowhere near up for the job,” Murray said. “My own view is that actually nobody could be, but they are especially unqualified; they talk about free speech as if nobody thought about it until a seminar they had some time last semester.”
“We are dealing with kids here,” he said, adding “these companies got everything about the last year wildly wrong” and citing Big Tech’s censorship of the Wuhan lab leak theory.
Murray and Domenech also discussed Facebook’s recent announcement that it will suspend former President Donald Trump’s account for the next two years. “Remember when Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook wouldn’t be an arbiter for political speech?” Domenech asked. “Apparently he doesn’t remember it either.”
