I read Matt Grocott’s excellent column “ Hello Facebook, or is it goodbye?” on the opinion page in the Daily Journal, Nov. 17. Thank you so much for being so articulate in expressing what so many citizens are feeling about censorship and control in social media outlets, as well as all other forms of news media.
I listened to the questioning of Facebook’s Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Dorsey in Washington, D.C., this week and could not believe that they actually claimed lack of knowledge in what goes on in their own companies. From my perspective, their being so disingenuous was very telling in what their opinion of free speech is. Your speaking out is so critical and I know I must do the same to try and preserve the United States as a land of free speech. First step for me is to remove myself from Facebook. I am investigating other platforms.
