Hate as an Online Revenue Model

At what point do twitter, FB, Google (YouTube) get a mandate for paying out advertising dollars related to hate speech and fear mongering?

These companies now control 90% of the digital ad stack and have been doing what they want for a while now. Their mandates are to earn money and they make 40-50 percent commission from every ad served. They have at least that much responsibility.

They should be regulated so as to stop paying hate and fear mongers, and fined substantially for not adequately shutting that shit down.

I don’t have the answer but regulation of the internet is not only difficult, it’s a slippery slope. As an example, we’ve been discussing net-neutrality for ages. It’s a very complex issue.

It took a while to get Zundel out of his bunker on Carlton, too. Both are worthwhile endeavours.
