The idea that liberal billionaires like Soros and Hoffman (and Omidyar) are going to save society by using their limitless wealth to police the internet for what *they regard as* disinformation, extremism and hate speech is one of the creepiest and dystopic things I've heard.
Reid Hoffman and George Soros launching a group to fight disinformation that they are calling “Good Information Inc.” axios.com/soros-hoffman-disi…

All three of these billionaires -- Soros, Hoffman and Omidyar -- fund groups and outlets that aggressively spread disinformation. The idea that *they* are going to use their vast wealth to police the internet in the name of keeping us safe is laughable. al.com/politics/2018/12/bill…

You know Glenn, sounds like you have such disdain for those hig on the ladder on the left. Have you commented on the new social media platform djt supposedly is planning to roll out and using the exact same reasoning? Let’s see you play the fairness card

Plenty of right wing billionaires and governments are already policing the internet. Why not one from the Left?

Co-sign. This is by far the most destructive cause left-liberals have espoused since humanitarian/human rightsist interventionism.
