When Facebook stifles the use of their platform to political organizations that they don't like then should that be considered as an in-kind contribution to the candidates who benefit from this authoritarian policy?
The Republican Party of La Crosse is being denied the opportunity to promote local Republican candidates. Will the Democrats who benefit from this report Facebook as in-kind contributions? Should the Federal Elections Commission investigate this practice to make sure our election laws are being followed?
This is how the technology companies are influencing our elections. Is this acceptable? What do you think would happen if companies like Fakebook were using their platform to stifle the speech of Democrat candidates?
Our friends at Empower WI are also investigating. You can find their excellent reporting here.
