Google now plays ‘Good Censor’ for civility’s sake, leaked internal briefing confirms

‘The Good Censor,’ prepared by a host of prominent industry researchers and “cultural leaders,” states that Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have been moving away from the “American tradition,” which protects free speech from any encroachment, towards the European one, which prefers “dignity over liberty and civility over freedom.”

Google’s mission, as well as that of other social media platforms, has become “to create well ordered spaces for safety and civility,” the briefing states.
