  1. 10 Cents:
    What happened?

    When BlazeTV merged with CRTV, they dumped Gavin McInnes while he was fighting the social media bans. Now they are hit by the bans and complain.

  3. I lost all interest in CRTV when they fell out with Mark Steyn. I’m glad he won the lawsuit against them.

    Same with NR, when they gave in to Mann, and left Steyn to fight by himself.

    They all get what they deserve!

  4. I see what you mean about the irony.

    But I am still really concerned about the censorship from Google/Youtube and from ABC-Disney-CapCities-ESPN-LSMFT.

    It will be interesting to see just how they think they can go to war against Google and ABC, considering that they are in the media business, and 90-plus percent of media are Leftists.

  5. All those conservatives who lectured us that social media companies can do what they want because capitalism are going to have a change of heart when censorship happens to them. Sure, Alex Jones is a bit of a weirdo but they all hid under the covers moaning muh principles when it happened to him and a host of others.

    If they really want to promote capitalism, they should go over to Gab and Bitchute. They should also stop using Patreon. (I’m thinking of Quillette here.) In related news… [language warning]

    Vee also has a take on this.

    Edit: Torba explaining the Dissenter feature.

  6. The problem with Dissenter (just from watching Vee’s intro to it) is the same one that always sinks these efforts — hosting and serving comments for the whole web.  This works while the user base is trivially small.

  7. The irony is that the ABC takedown of Crowder’s broadcast may be among the most legitimate takedowns of any conservative broadcaster.

    My guess is they would’ve done the same to a leftist.

    Not having seen the broadcast, I can’t more definitively comment on whether Crowder engaged in fair use.  It will be interesting to see the issue litigated. Historically the two most abusive major trademark owners may be the NFL in its enforcement of the Super Bowl mark and the Academy in its enforcement of the Oscars mark.

    As much as I like Crowder, I suspect the same.  Again, sight unseen, but if you’re carrying the whole thing live to comment on it…
