Fox Nation Now on 'Fox Nation': 'Starnes Country' on the Latest Censored Conservatism on Social Media

Starnes noted how Franklin Graham, the son of the late Rev. Billy Graham, was temporarily banned from Facebook, and west-coast conservative radio host Lars Larson was banned on Twitter for his conservative commentary.
He said that tech giants who were granted legal protections by Congress when they were in their infancy are now able to regulate content as a publisher would.
Dr. Jerry Johnson, president of National Religious Broadcasters, likened the current state of social media as a telephone company blocking conservatives from making calls or a public utility cutting the power to families of a certain ideology.
"It has to stop," Johnson said.
Johnson called on Congress to remove or edit the protections it placed on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, so that they can be the incubators of free speech they were founded to be.
"If someone is liable, if someone is harmed... then Facebook should have their day in court," Johnson said.
