Should Big Tech Companies Be Regulated as Utilities? Trump – Biden – Pelosi – Kamala – Texas – Masks – Stimulus – Economy – Stock Market Show Comments 6 Comments briben biden on April 6, 2021 Facebook, twitter, youtube, and amazon have abused the privilege of operating in america and as a result they need to be broken up through antitrust laws and then regulated. Further the top executives need to serve prison time for their censorship. They should have just stayed neutral but the owners are trying to hide their greed with liberal talk. Doug Litchfield on April 6, 2021 Regulated is a broad term. Democrats who can’t regulate bodily functions will surely be involved in gutting anything that might help consumers. Yeah, I’m from the government and I’m here to help. Michael Smith on April 6, 2021 I agree with Justice Thomas, if they’re going to act as editors of Free Speech, and restrict the opinion, or truth of what people say, then they should be regulated, and regulate the hell out of them. rm on April 6, 2021 Phones are regulated as common carrier utilities. Electric power is also regulated as a utility, just like water, sewer, gas, etc. We don’t get cut off talking on our (common carrier regulated) telephones; all US internet traffic must be regulated like telephones to stop censoring, cut offs, etc. DonOldGuy on April 7, 2021 More regulation is not the answer. We already have anti-trust laws that can limit their reach. Don Nicholas on April 7, 2021 Public utilities still make a fair profit and the public have the appearance of control. At any rate the Tech giants brought on themselves, they can’t be trusted. Comments are closed.
