From Fast Company’s interview with Scott Galloway:

Fast Company: What do you think about Mark Zuckerberg’s relationship with Donald Trump?

These companies constantly prostitute the notion of the First Amendment. And whenever they say First Amendment, what they really mean is they want to pretend that they shouldn’t be the arbiters of truth, such that they can let their supernova business models run unfettered.

There is nothing in any of their backgrounds that shows any reverence or respect for free speech.
