Quote of the Day

“Right now, on your website, is an ad claiming that Joe Biden gave the Ukrainian attorney general a billion dollars not to investigate his son. Every square inch of that is a lie and it's under your logo. That's not defending free speech, Mark, that's assaulting truth.

”You and I want speech protections to make sure no one gets imprisoned or killed for saying or writing something unpopular, not to ensure that lies have unfettered access to the American electorate.“

— Aaron Sorkin, creator of ”West Wing“ and screenwriter for ”The Social Network,“ in ”An Open Letter to Mark Zuckerberg“ in The New York Times. It's good to hear. I can only hope Zuckerberg and other libertarian-leaning, all-powerful Silicon Valley techies listen.

Scene from ”The Social Network.“ The note, passed to Zuckerberg, simply says ”U dick."
