Media and the free market

Over the past Year there has been a rise in Boycotts, whether it be boycott Netflix Boycott Keurig boycott NFL boycott Oscars boycott NRA sponsors boycott NRATV and many many more. Although boycotts in the past were more affective nowadays Boycotts don’t work like they used too. For example A lot of rental car companies and airlines have pulled out of “discount programs ” pulled certain guns off their shelves and preemptively put age restrictions on guns. Granted what many of these companies have done was a slight overreaction to say the least and a publicity stunt at best it was also a strategic move to get people to go with their rewards programs and pander to the customer base. However I’ve already discussed that in a previous blog which you can check out by Clicking on this link Today I’m going to talk about alternative media Specifically YouTube, Facebook,Twitter and Netflix. YouTube, Facebook and Twitter has found itself in quite a bit of controversy considering With their overreaction where do you have pocket with their overreaction with advertisers and YouTube creators it’s an issue effecting everyone like Matt jarbo’s Mondanematt Kyle Kalinsky’s secular talk, Dave Rubin from the Rubin report, Sargon of akkad, and Alex Jones’s infowars main reason being is since the death of cable YouTube is prioritizing their larger streamers and other news organizations such as FOXNews CNN as well as pushing YouTube TV and YouTube red and although I do not agree with the idea of Censorship we need to understand the most important thing we live in a free market society where you can say do watch/listen and read anything you want just as long as it doesn’t insight violence if these platforms are not doing right by their subscribers then ultimately what has to be done is that people need to move to other platforms. Such as Twitch, dailymotion, vimeo, tumblr and gab.ai. Now on to Netflix. Like YouTube Netflix has a wide variety of movies and shows at your disposal if you do not like a particular show or movie you don’t have to watch it so for you to boycott Netflix for giving Obama a platform or dear white people or any reason is ridiculous just don’t watch it I am going to leave you with a video from the late George Carlin

I don’t agree with boycotts simply because not only don’t they work but because it violates freedom of speech (the first amendment) and as for the free market we are far from it when you still have a monopoly on the cable industry and The energy market
