U.S. Treasury Yellen: Twitter should be held to certain standards for content

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday said social media company Twitter should be held to certain standards for content, arguing that it is "not that different" from radio stations and broadcasters subject to such rules.
...
"I'm not going to say specifically what we are or aren't looking at," Yellen said. "We don't comment on work that's in progress. But if there are such risks, it would be appropriate for CFIUS to have a look."

Musk on Monday accused Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) of threatening to block Twitter from its app store and said Apple was pressuring Twitter over content moderation demands.

Yellen said she believed it was appropriate for mobile technology giants Apple and Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) to demand certain content standards.

"I think it's a good thing, if Apple is looking at the content. Most broadcast stations are subjected to standards in terms of what they broadcast to the public. And Twitter's not really that different than other broadcast stations," Yellen said.

She is NOW trying to walk back these remarks. But sorry, YOU CANNOT UNRING THE BELL. We know your thoughts and that of this abdominal administration

Oh she is just tipping the government’s hand with the way they will try to rein in Twitter now after they collided with Twitter to censor folks.

Because Elon is allegedly going to release the twitter agreements with the US gov and hopefully others

But members of Twitter testified under oath that none of that was happening and now they SHOULD face charges but they won’t because the DOJ is compromised and partisan

There is a clear intent behind this statement.

When CBDCs and personal ESG/Social Credit scoring system comes online for U.S. Citizens, your finances can be directly impacted based on your participation on certain platforms with certain political leanings.

They are slowly bridging these things together.

What does Twitter have to do with American monetary policy and how is this the business of the Treasury Department?

When the tyrannical Deep State tries to tell you exactly who they are - BELIEVE THEM!

"We don't comment on work that's in progress..."


Note she doesn't even go so far as to say INVESTIGATION, for pure legal reasons, but just as with Trump, they'll find something. Just give them time.

She doesn't know what she's talking about. The FCC standards for radio and TV are based on 'use of airwaves'. Cable TV doesn't use 'air' therefore you can buy porn channels on your cable TV.
Internet does not use 'air' so the FCC has no authority.
She's a moron.
