On Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Guy Benson Show,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) stated that the government should be kept “as far away” from the political handling of social media bias as possible, and warned that “even if you would like the policies that the current administration might employ if it started stepping into this arena,” you probably won’t like the policies that would be enacted by a Democratic administration using the same power.
Look, this may be attractive from a distance, to some, at any given moment, but it’s a very dangerous, slippery slope to start opening the door to having the government regulate these platforms.”
You don’t want force deciding the art of persuasion or deciding the art of communication with social media.”
Host Guy Benson then raised the prospect of how a Democratic administration might use increased power to regulate social media.
Because even if you would like the policies that the current administration might employ if it started stepping into this arena, that’s good for now, if you agree with it.
