Sure, these things I know; I guess I wasn't clear that it was rhetorical question.
I am having more and more of my resistance to government intrusion into these tech companies undercut every single day.
The FCC needs to be doing their job. Media companies should not be able to decide what is or is not adult content on their own, sorry. That's the way
it's down with TV, the movies, radio, etc. I can bring up any number of YT videos with fighting, violence, adult language, on and on, that do not have
an age restriction on it.
I didn't watch the whole video, just the segment with Bryne. Did somebody use a potty mouth?? Was there any disturbing footage or suggestive material?
What I saw was political-oriented interview that would be entirely opaque to a 12 year old, so boring and impenetrable to them that they'd turn it off
in about 17 seconds.
I think maybe the FCC needs to step in and start regulating these platforms. I have kids, I don't want them watching inappropriate things, but the
idea that somebody at Google can slap a "parental guidance" waiver on a political video is repulsive. There needs to be standards about what the
platforms can "fact check". what they can mark as "age inappropriate". This whole thing is spiraling out of control.
