Read Sacha Baron Cohen's scathing attack on Facebook in full: 'greatest propaganda machine in history' | Technology | The Guardian
[Sacha Baron Cohen](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacha_Baron_Cohen), of Borat and Ali G fame, gave the keynote at the [Anti-Defamation League](https://www.adl.org) Never is Now event. Honestly, you should take 25 minutes and [watch the full video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymaWq5yZIYM). This is an incredibly insightful, purposeful take at the negative impacts of social media platforms. I love his statement that "Freedom of Speech is not Freedom of Reach". Social media platforms love to hide behind Freedom of Speech and it’s a completely false argument. Read their Terms of Service and you'll realize there is no freedom of anything. It’s a business! This writeup from the Daily Beast "[Sacha Baron Cohen Uses ADL Speech to Tear Apart Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook](https://www.thedailybeast.com/sacha-baron-cohen-uses-adl-speech-to-tear-apart-mark-zuckerberg-and-facebook)" is a good overview too. ✊
