Mike's Blog Round Up
March 22, 2019

Good Morning Crooks and Liars! It's crept into our lives, it started off slowly and now is so fully integrated into our daily habits many of us cannot imagine going a day without Social Media. And so for good and ill, we suspect Big Tech is here to stay, and we are addicted to Social Media for good and ill. Our bloggers today look at tech, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and yes, Gab.

Gin and Tacos reminds us that Facebook and Twitter can and have removed ISIS from their platforms; so why don't they deplatform white nationalists?

We Hunted The Mammoth notes that people are even kicked off Gab for threatening comments about leftists.

Blue Heron Blast says that they are gonna miss Google+.

Bonus Track: The Tweet of the Moment.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).

Can you help us out?

For 18 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
