    Meanwhile, Twitter labeled a parody video Trump shared of Biden as manipulated

    The Trump campaign on Tuesday asked Twitter to label a video posted by Joe Biden's campaign as manipulated media over a clip that they say takes President Trump's words out of context and has been repeatedly fact-checked as incorrect manipulation, but the company declined to do so, according to emails obtained by Fox News.

    The video purports to contrast what Trump says in public versus in private on the coronavirus, accusing him of lying to the public. One of the examples of Trump's public comments in the video is from a Feb. 28 campaign rally at which Trump appears to be calling the coronavirus a hoax.

    "The coronavirus, and this is their new hoax," Trump is heard saying in the Biden video.

    Big Tech needs to be regulated, if not nationalized. Simple as that.

    nationalized is perhaps a bad idea, but there needs to be something stopping these companies from being little hitlers

    What's wrong with nationalizing them? They'd be subject to oversight (whether they like it or not) and the government is constitutionally prohibited from infringing upon free speech.

    Nationalize them.

    Having worked for the government and seen cover-ups, foias not returned, and even a department-internal cocaine distribution network, I don't think it'd change much. And heck, the public universities are worse than most places and that is government (despite the universities apparently needing to be constantly checked by the courts, abuses are expanding exponentially.)

    So, we need to enforce existing rules and implement real reform? I like the way you think!

    Answering this question directly could result in hot water for me.

    Suffice it to say, where there's a will and a loaded gun, there's a way.
