(TMU) — As more and more Americans question the practices of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon, the topic of censorship on social media and in search results continues to be a hotly debated topic. Do these companies essentially act as publishers, and if so, should they be regulated as such? Should the government make efforts to break up the tech giants? These questions and more need answering as the public grapples with the reality that “Big Tech” is gaining more control over what we see, hear, and read while surfing the internet.

Guess who wrote the following text: When Alexa runs your home, Amazon tracks you in more ways than you might want Would you let a stranger eavesdrop in your home and keep the recordings? For most people, the answer is, “Are you crazy?” Yet that’s essentially what Amazon has been doing to millions of us with its assistant Alexa in microphone-equipped Echo speakers.

As we continue to chronicle, the anti-vax war is reaching new levels following a directive handed down by the World Health Organization that listed the anti-vaccine movement as a leading threat to global health.

A 85-page briefing entitled “The Good Censor,” exclusively leaked to Breitbart News from within Google, advises tech companies to “police tone rather than content” and to not “take sides” when censoring users.
The document, which can be read in full here, acknowledges that tech platforms including Google have shifted towards censorship in recent years, moving away from their original commitment to the American tradition of free speech.
Responding to the leak, an official Google source said the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position.
It does not recommend a return to those early principles, instead leaving the question open and suggesting Google may “shift with the times,” recommending increased transparency to smooth the process from free speech to censorship. The recommendations appear on pages 81-84 of the briefing.
“Google might continue to shift with the times – changing its stance on how much or how little it censors (due to public, governmental or commercial pressures). If it does, acknowledgment of what this shift in position means for users and for Google is essential. Shifting blindly or silently in one direction or another rightly incites users’ fury.”
The briefing quotes outside experts who argue against taking sides politically, instead suggesting that Google police “tone instead of content” and censor everyone equally.
