  1. Regarding the discussion of free speech, I wanna say that although private organizations are not obligated by law to provide a platform, in some cases it would be unethical – despite legal – to censor. A magazine is quite different from a restaurant or a website. Magazines are by design one-way info dispensaries, a restaurant is a place where people want to relax and eat food. Websites such as youtube and facebook however are often utilized as platforms for debate so even though they are private corporations, they do have an ethical obligation to protect user’s free speech despite not being required by law.
