Yaron and Amy: “Alex Jones, Arbitrary-info Wars, and ‘Community Standards’,” TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

Facebook and YouTube have banned Alex Jones. Should they have? Is Twitter next? Are social media Rules/Community Standards creating a slippery slope toward a Culture of Censorship? These questions and more are what I plan to discuss with Yaron today. See Program Notes, below for stories, etc., I plan to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.

Yaron and Amy: “Why Not ‘Atlas Lobbied’?” TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

Yaron is back for a week, so we’ll be doing a show today at our usual time!

The title is based on a question I raised on Facebook–one inspired by recent discussions there about potentially regulating Facebook, or perhaps suing Facebook for apparent bias against conservative thinkers in applying its Community Standards. See Program Notes, below, for the stories, etc., I have planned to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.

Yaron and Amy: “Zuckerberg in DC: Sanction of the Victim?” TODAY at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT)

Yaron is still on the road, so we’re doing the show at a different day/time than usual. I hope you can join us!

The title encompasses two different questions I’m eager to discuss with Yaron, and of course we’ll also discuss Syria. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I have planned to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.

POST-SHOW UPDATE: Yaron was, ironically perhaps, not able to get the Facebook livestream to work. So the video is available only on YouTube here:
