Therefore the 1st Amendment, and other American rights, are trampled over in the name morality, safety, and inclusion determined by an unelected employee of a company.

The answer is not 'get off the platform' because modern digital life is dominated by these platforms.

So, if your the shot-caller at youtube, you can ban anyone/anything you want, just put it in the EULA and you are golden.....Imagine someone who has GBs or TBs of images on a google drive, then google whacks there account and all those images are gone forever.
No one’s First Amendment rights are being trampled by a corporate decision to limit speech. They have the right to “censor”. It’s the government that can’t limit speech (within certain limitations such as yelling “fire” in a crowd).

But the problem is that the public has to be the check and balance for censorship or for limiting the free flow of ideas. That’s the true issue. YouTube, Google, etc are in a position to influence the flow of ideas and thought and information. Just like everyone should have their day in court, I think every idiot should be able to broadcast their views. Unfortunately the corporations can use company policies to prevent that.

That said, I find it extremely unethical and concerning when information about something like the Coronavirus is being censored because it doesn’t fit the MSM fear monger it narrative.

If you remember your history, the U.S. was started because many Englishmen were tired of being censored by the King of England. 244 years later here we are free to make our own decisions as individuals. Nobody has censored us yet.

Can I just say, since it was in the OP, that Rogan is a giant douche and it concerns me that men from 20-50 are heavily influenced by Rogan and Barstool.

Rogan giving his platform to legitimate nutjobs (Alex Jones) is problematic.

I like Rogan, he's entertaining. But that's what he is, an entertainer. He's not a smart guy, he just remembers facts and articulates them with a certain authority.

It is concerning that so many dudes take his word as the gospel. His clinging to saunas and "heat shock proteins" is almost as bad as a woman's undying belief in essential oils. That was sexist, I should have said a female-type human's undying belief in essential oils.
