Stupidly silly. The FB “court” has “jurisdiction” over Facebook only.
If T**** has a right to be on all these non-governmental platforms, the I demand I be given a nightly show on Faux News. Otherwise, they are impinging on my free speech.
I hope the tangerine traitor doesn’t see this, otherwise he might try to run for President of Facebook.
Then again, that would be far more hilarious than the times he ran for President.
Clearly, FB is not courting anyone but more potential subscribers.
Damn, you’ve gotten stupid Signs. Gone Full MAGAT. FB is a private company it gets to decide who it will do business with. It isn’t part of the government
Signe, you need to have a blog or something to explain this one.
You want FB to be totally unmoderated?
FB gets to set rules only with approval? If so, by who? You? Trump? The Law?
Give us some more hints.
Is Signe going to demand that the bakeries bake cakes for gay couples?
Until Facebook becomes a government entity, this cartoon is just plain wrong.
Our lack of regulation of social media is a splendid example of one of the dangers of a pure democracy … i.e. mob rule.
Are you asking that FB be nationalized ? How Socialist !
It’s fascinating how the nutclusters in the far right – the ones who preach the value of corporations having freedom from government oppression – don’t like it when corporations exercise that freedom in a way that the far right can’t control.It’s deliciously ironic, no?
This could be changed with a wee bit of regulation…
A complex question and a really stupid cartoon. Why would anyone wait for the court to decide? It will take a lot of time — years — to get this right.
Signe used to be good a this.
Facebook court refused to make a concrete ruling and pointed out that they were NOT the Supreme Court.
Absolutely outrageous that companies like FB be allowed to have rules.. is this not a free country?
Come on now, we all know that the “Trump Court” is higher then the rest! Or, at least says Trump.
saw Jimmy Dore segment on this facebook court, its paid or has at its disposal, a huge amount of money . .
also saw the name Nick Clegg which I thought I recognized, yep, was once head of Britain’s liberal party
In a sense, Signe has it right, but only partly right. So, what are the other parts?
Public opinion is what is really at the top.
The Supreme Court — and above that, the Constitution — only have authority as long as enough of the public accept that they do.
And so, in a sense, those entities with enough power to manipulate public opinion share the true “highest” level.
But that’s not just Facebook. It’s also — and especially — Fox and other media that instead of banning a few, ban all except a few from using their platform to broadcast opinions.
Facebook, even given its size, is only one piece of the media that manipulate content, and far less restrictive than most.
Oh good grief, Facebook bans lots of people all the time for breaking its rules. It’s a private company.
No shoes, no shirt, no service. FB made a similar decision to limit Typhoid Donnie’s drivel.
If a person is caught shoplifting in a store, the store has the right to ban that person from the store. Should the person return to the store, the store can have said person charged with trespassing.
Facebook has a rules page that you have to accept before joining. They are allowed to enforce the rules that a person agreed to when they joined.
There’s always the appeal to the Internet Court.
Signe, it might have been a better message if perhaps you had put a couple of kangaroos as logos for the FB court. It appears to be one considering its lack of rules and explicit authority which its current members used to avoid being collateral damage.
Zuckerberg got himself messier trying to pass the buck with the current avoidance setup. It didn’t help him either that he waited until after the Fat Orange Clown was out of power.
It’s the Court of Public Opinion at the polling place that will count in time.
An influential rather than a regulatory hierarchy is my reading.
Sad but true.
Only Twitter and Facebook have the authority to punish Trump.
I could re-write this for the Congressional power pecking order pyramid. Chuckie-boy Schumer would be at the top
