Big Tech companies are finally under the microscope.
They’ve been given a lot of latitude and they’ve used it to censor anyone that questions the establishment.
But one acclaimed documentary filmmaker has a beef with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg for this truly nightmarish reason.
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns is exasperated with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but not for good reasons.
Burns – like other leftists – are furious at Zuckerberg for not engaging in more censorship.
During an interview, Burns said “I hope Zuckerberg is in jail” for allowing “misinformation” to spread on Facebook.
Burns went even further and said:
“This is an enemy of the state, and I mean the United States of America. He doesn’t give a sh*t about us, the United States. He knows he can transcend it. He can get away to any place. And so it’s just about filthy lucre, that’s it.”
Burns also threw Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg under the bus and even hoped for a “Nuremberg” trial for the two executives.
Burns’ reason for anger is too much free speech on the platform.
He added during a muddled rant:
“I think this is where the rubber is meeting the road. We’re at this desperate place, the convergence of all of these viruses: the side effects of the misinformation and the paranoia and the lying, voter suppression. And then the rewriting of our history, our saying that we’re not interested in facts, we’re not interested in the truth, we’re not interested in the many varied voices that make us up.”
The greatest purveyors of misinformation are the so-called “mainstream” media.
It was the corporate-controlled press that perpetuated the Russiagate hoax with endless “bombshells” that went nowhere and led to nothing.
The press argued that even suggesting COVID-19 came from a lab in Wuhan was racist.
It only became a credible theory when the Left said so.
The corporate-controlled press also tried to destroy the lives of the Covington Catholic kids because left-wing journalists had a narrative to uphold.
And the fear-mongering over voter suppression is absurd.
Black participation in elections has been steadily increasing.
Burns is a dyed-in-the-wool leftist who’s too steeped in the establishment narrative to realize he’s perpetuating what he claims to hate.
The authoritarian mindset of the Left is on full display because luminaries like Burns are openly calling for censorship while simultaneously talking about jail and Nuremberg trials.
