Poll: Majority of Americans Think Facebook Has Too Much Power

Published

on

Fox News polls reveal that more than 60 percent of American voters believe Facebook has too much power, according to a new poll that was conducted during a time when the tech giant is under increased political scrutiny.

Sixty-one percent of voters questioned by Fox News believed Facebook has “too much power.” Forty-eight percent echoed similar sentiments about Google, followed by Amazon at 45 percent, and Apple at 43 percent.

However, only 35 percent of those polled said that they saw “big technology companies” are a larger threat to the country’s future than “big government.” Instead, fifty-eight percent of voters told Fox News pollsters that “big government” poses a larger threat.

The poll was disseminated as the Trump administration and Congress proceed to investigate the power that tech companies such as Facebook and Google possess. The House Judiciary Committee started its antitrust investigation earlier this month, while the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Department of Justice are preparing to launch probes into the companies’ anticompetitive practices.

Additionally, the FTC has also conducted an investigation on Facebook’s potential data privacy violations for over a year. However, this has not been enough for Facebook critics, who believe the agency should be taking more decisive action by imposing stringent penalties on the powerful social media company.

Sarah Miller, co-chairwoman of the Freedom from Facebook campaign, declared in a statement that the poll demonstrates that “consumers are sick and tired of Facebook’s reckless behavior.”

The Facebook watchdog leader added, “The FTC needs to stop dragging their feet and find Facebook in violation of its consent decree, and break up its monopoly.”

This week, The Verge reported on the death of a Facebook content moderator who worked for a Facebook contractor in Tampa Bay. The story was kept under wraps for the past few months, but  once former employees broke the details, it revealed the disturbing work environment at Facebook and its various contractors. The moderator in question was tasked with spending long hours policing content at Facebook.

Incidents like these and the recent wave of censorship Facebook has levied against certain right-wingers show that the Big Tech company’s once shiny image is slowly becoming tarnished thanks to its corporate policies.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
