American Civil Liberties Union - ACLU
Music Television - MTV

Both of their names states what they used to do.

Turn on MTV and the odds are you won’t be watching a music video

Listen the the ACLU and odds are they won’t be protecting civil liberties...well at least not American Civil Liberties.

ACLU is against banning tictok because people need social media. Have you ever heard them say one thing when twitter/YouTube/Facebook does purges?

I wonder if their Hypocrisy is just a leftist thang or does China just pay them to much money to be quiet?

This is a very good analogy. I do remember when MTV was music videos... and I do remember when the ACLU actually fought for civil liberties.

How the mighty have fallen.

You do make a good point, the Anti Deformation League is also a good one.

Tic Tok is a bit more complex

Revealed: how TikTok censors videos that do not please Beijing


TikTok, the popular Chinese-owned social network, instructs its moderators to censor videos that mention Tiananmen Square, Tibetan independence, or the banned religious group Falun Gong, according to leaked documents detailing the site’s moderation guidelines.


They censor a lot more with their 50 cent army. Worst than twitter. A lot of talk about Covid when it broke out got shut down.

Your first example is the government while your second is a private business.

The ACLU is a non profit organization.
Not government.
I probably misunderstood you.
Either way, the aclu supports censorship when it agrees with their slanted views.
Which is their right, because they have the right to suck.

I'm referring to the government wanting to ban something and Twitter/Facebook banning someone.

First is the government, second is a private business.
