Thoughtful missive from Wilbur on Mac360.
To a flexible degree, Apple curates the content it sells (no p-o-r-n on iTunes or Podcasts, but filthy language on Apple Music; go figure, right?). No Alex Jones’ Infowars on iTunes or Podcasts, but it’s OK to use Safari to browse to wherever Jones’ messages can be found. Jones and his non-mainstream media messages have been banned from much of Facebook, most of YouTube, and some of elsewhere, but his app remains on the iOS App Store.
I get mixed signals from Apple on how it manages tools and content. Fake news and hate are both a scourge on humanity, but Apple sits on both sides; content and tools.
