On March 2, the Montana House of Representatives nearly passed a bill that would have allowed the state to regulate social-media infringements on freedom of speech. Companies such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter would have been subjected to oversight and scrutiny by the Montana Public Service Commission that already regulates public utilities, railroads, energy companies, and other key industries. The measure failed by one vote. Public Service Commissioner Randall Pinocci was outraged that some “RINO Republicans” joined Democrats to kill the bill by a single vote. He said the bill was not introduced just to help Montana but to set a precedent for other states as well. There is still is a possibility of re-introducing the bill in a slightly different way for the Montana Senate. -GEG

Under the legislation, known as House Bill 573, companies such as Facebook and YouTube would have been subjected to oversight and scrutiny by the Montana Public Service Commission. Multiple commissioners, elected to regulate utilities and other interests, expressed support for the effort.
Lawmakers also stressed the significance of the plan, describing the bill as a necessary measure to protect the rights of Montanans from unaccountable corporate giants with what a number of legislators described as “extreme” political biases.
Job insecurity and fear of contracting the virus while pregnant likely dissuaded Americans from having babies. The declines were steeper in states that were hit the hardest by COVID-19, such as California and New York.

Notorious lockdown states such as New York and New Jersey have some of the worst mortality numbers. States with no restrictions, such as Texas and Florida, have fewer deaths than New York and New Jersey.

Vivekh, a 59-year old comedian and actor died two days after taking Covaxin, India’s homegrown COVID-19 vaccine. He took the injection during a public televised event for the purpose of removing fear of vaccination among the public.
Most reports coming from India follow the story line that the virus is is killing alarming numbers, that hospitals are overwhelmed, but that the situation will get better when everyone is vaccinated. This is the same scenario popularized in Europe and the US. The mortality death rate is similar to the flu.

Canadian professor of psychology, Dr. Jordan Peterson, while being interviewed about his defense of free speech, is asked by a TV host: “Why should your right to freedom of speech trump a trans person’s right not to be offended?” He responded: “Because in order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive. Look at the conversation we’re having right now. You’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth. Why should you have the right to do that?” The TV host was left with no response.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is planning to add a Wikipedia information box to every video that is focused around what YouTube considers to be a conspiracy theory. The goal is to counter the information with ‘reliable’ information.
