WEB Notes: Remember a few years back when the US government tried to shut up the bloggers? Luckily that fizzled out, but I think we all knew that was not the end. Now they are going after Google, Facebook, etc and they are seeking to fine those social entities if they host any content that is against the mainstream narrative…
I feel this is playing good cop, bad cop here. There is a lot of evidence that suggest the government and these social entities work together. It will look like the social entities have your best interest at heart, but I do not feel that is the case at all. We have already seen the government and these social entities work together to silence certain messages while promoting sinful messages such as homosexuality.
The EU is preparing to fine Google over its multi-billion dollar advertising empire as a high-profile investigation into its Android operating system is pushed back to next year.

It will be the second fine in less than a year, after Google was ordered to pay €2.4bn (£2.1bn) in June for abusing its internet search monopoly to promote its online shopping service.
