Unbelievable that there is no detailed Bill of Rights analysis but then again, it doesn’t fit the purpose hence the decision to ignore it.

There seems to be two eco-systems of communication that are emerging: Elon Musk’s twitter, Rumble and Substack (amongst others) on the one hand, and on the other hand, established media who are either government funded or closely aligned to their government. Quite a fascinating duel.

Hmm...I'd like you to expand on the ever increasing need and use of the word safety! This doesn't surprise me as it was flagged as an option in briefings to Minister Tinetti in 2020 i found in an OIA.

Netsafe would often report content that fell into mis/disinfo buckets during covid, usually being alerted to it by other players in the government space who didn't want to be seen as the 'internet police' (their words) - but were happy to pass it on to Netsafe to action. But it often didn't mean Facebook say would take it down. It didn't meet the threshold for them to do so and Netsafe et al were clearly frustrated at that at times - a regulator means they never have to rely on the platform's own policies?
