Reply to: Facebook creates fact-checking exemption for climate deniers
Your effort to stop posts on Facebook about climate “denial” is deceitful and dangerous. Climate denial as you put it is nothing more than legitimate disagreement with the left’s preferred narrative about the state of the planet. On a subject as complex as the changing temperature of a planet whose temperature is always changing there is room for considerable debate. The idea that no one can publish any statement that diverges from the scientific “consensus” is alarming. Galileo and Isaac Newton come to mind as examples of voices who differed with the consensus. Your view would list Galileo as a geocentric denier. There is certainly reason to think about how to filter information on Facebook and other platforms. A group of experts deciding what is acceptable and what is not is more frightening to me than the freedom to publish information and let the public decide. I trust the public more than the experts and I believe the idea that the answer to issues of speech is more speech.

I have both PDF files for Koch's Heritage Foundations "Coronavirus Recovery committee" and Trump's "Open America Up Again". All Trump did was remove the cover page and put his name on it. Time to disclose WHO is behind the demand to Return to Work!!

When will we see a report on the free speech suppression of conservative voices, particularly on America's higher education campuses? Free means free to all, not just your favored classes.

Sorry to break it to you but if the Hartford is through AARP, you may want to do some homework. According to documented.net, as of Aug. 2019, AARP were on a list of 1,413 attendees for the ALEC 2019 Annual Meeting in Austin in 08/2019: “AARP, which – after member pressure – publicly distanced itself from ALEC in 2016 (see LA Times: A shamed AARP withdraws from right-wing lobbying organization ALEC) WAS BACK at ALEC with 20 members of staff. This included numerous AARP state directors and members of its national staff.“ https://documented.net/2019/08/alec-legislators-am-2019/ Based on what I’ve researched, AARP were def w/ ALEC back in 2012 when you wrote your comment.
