“Restricted: How Big Tech Is Taking Away Your Freedom”, 2101/9/29, 20 min, documentary from PragerU, link.

BigTech is depicted as using its monopoly  tactics to favor an identarian progressive agenda, with a vague definition of hate speech based on relativism and grievance rather than normal social standards.

In practice it tends to shadow-ban or demonetize rather than deplatform. Or thry have refused to distinguish between citizen or independent journalism and direct speech.

But it in extreme cases it has used infrastructure companies to remove competitors (Parler) or even get bank accounts closed.
