US tech giants info-actions against Russia
Without being forced to, they've taken actions against Russia, Russians, and Russian information sources.
Facebook reportedly will allow posts calling for violence against Russia and its president.
Wion asked, "Isn't this criminal? Won't this promote hate? Won't this incite hostility against all Russians?"
Google barred the Russian government from monetizing content. Apple stopped sales in Russia and cut Russia off from the ApplePlay, and has blocked RT and Sputnik outside Russia. Twitter is labeling all posts that are pro-Russian and adding a label on pro-Russian stories.
Wion said that Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Amazon were awarded $44.5b from the DHS and DoD. For aiding the US military, providing them with digital tools that can be used in wars. Including access to databases, cloud computing, surveillance, drone tech and pushing narratives.
Wion also pointed out the revolving door for professionals that work in big tech and then in government. And former government who now are controlling big tech companies.
