Investigating State Attorneys General Collusion With Pro-Censorship Group

If you’re tired of censorship and dystopian threats against civil liberties, subscribe to Reclaim The Net. America First Legal (AFL) continues its work that the group says is aimed at lifting the veil of secrecy from the Big Tech-government internet censorship collusion. AFL has now announced a nationwide investigation in the US into the role of foreign-based organizations in the process and inner mechanisms of online speech suppression, which has been ongoing for a while. AFL chose the rout of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to shed light on these First Amendment issues – and what prompted this was a letter from 12 US state attorneys-general, who signed it to address Twitter and Facebook, and, according to an AFL press release – all demanding censorship of speech of US citizens. These state AG’s also happen to all be Democrats, AFL revealed. And the alleged collusion in question involved a foreign entity – UK-based Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH). CCDH’s perhaps single “claim to fame” thus far has been to be over and over associated with pro-censorship efforts – no less, in another country. (Do we still call that “meddling in internal affairs” – or has the narrative shifted, especially where legacy media are concerned?)
