New York Times columnist disturbed by the awesome power of the tech giants, but glad Trump and Parler were deplatformed

This is about as blatant as it gets. New York Times columnist and MSNBC contributor Michelle Goldberg admits that she’s disturbed by how much power the tech giants have. Of course, President Trump deserved to be kicked off of social media and Amazon was right to pull the plug on Parler’s hosting, but imagine if those young idealists pulling the strings went after, say, a liberal?

Goldberg writes:

As a non-libertarian, however, I find myself both agreeing with how technology giants have used their power in this case, and disturbed by just how awesome their power is. Trump deserved to be deplatformed. Parler, a social network favored by Trumpists that teemed with threats against the president’s enemies, deserved to be kicked off Amazon’s web-hosting service. But it’s dangerous to have a handful of callow young tech titans in charge of who has a megaphone and who does not.

How about those callow young tech titans taking away the New York Post’s megaphone when it uncovered that incriminating information on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. Twitter refused to allow people to share the story, and then a month later we learned he’d been under FBI investigation since 2018, but the investigation had gone quiet due to a Justice Department policy around “overt” actions that could influence an election. Where was the violent insurrection being suppressed in that case?

All Goldberg knows is that “Trumpists” favored Parler, and doesn’t even seem to question why that may be?
