How Twitter Uses "Media Privilege" to Play Palace Guard for Hillary in One Image

You’ve heard about the media in gen­eral and twit­ter in par­tic­u­larly give­ing Hillary Clin­ton “media priv­i­lege” well I think this visual of this tweet says it all

I spot­ted this on instapun­dit and noticed the warn­ing about sen­si­tive mate­r­ial. Such a label of course auto­mat­i­cally implies that what is beyond it is so ter­ri­ble, so hor­ri­ble, so beyond the pale that one risks cross­ing the bounds of pro­pri­ety if one see it and it goes with­out say­ing such an image shouldn’t be shown to kids.

But we are an adult blog here so brace your­selves here is the actual image that is SO sen­si­tive that twit­ter wanted it cen­sored click MORE if you dare.…

the scary image

Seri­ously? That’s it?

Now to be fair let’s grant that there are con­ser­v­a­tives who would call not only CNN offen­sive but Hillary Clin­ton even more so, but even with that con­ces­sion I’d like to know how twit­ter can jus­tify cen­sor­ing this image label­ing it as “sen­si­tive”, thus imply­ing the con­tents (all from cnn) rep­re­sented by said image and crit­i­cal of their cov­er­age of Hillary oppo­nents crosses over the line of decency?

I’d love an answer for that ques­tion, wouldn’t you?

You’ve heard about the media in general and twitter in particularly giveing Hillary Clinton “media privilege” well I think this visual of this tweet says it all

I spotted this on instapundit and noticed the warning about sensitive material. Such a label of course automatically implies that what is beyond it is so terrible, so horrible, so beyond the pale that one risks crossing the bounds of propriety if one see it and it goes without saying such an image shouldn’t be shown to kids.

But we are an adult blog here so brace yourselves here is the actual image that is SO sensitive that twitter wanted it censored click MORE if you dare….

Seriously? That’s it?

Now to be fair let’s grant that there are conservatives who would call not only CNN offensive but Hillary Clinton even more so, but even with that concession I’d like to know how twitter can justify censoring this image labeling it as “sensitive”, thus implying the contents (all from cnn) represented by said image and critical of their coverage of Hillary opponents crosses over the line of decency?

I’d love an answer for that question, wouldn’t you?
