    'A heavy price': Two decades of war, wariness and the post-9/11 security state.
    NBC News (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 74% • 15 min read

    The immediate and long-term U.S. responses to the 2001 attacks have intractably altered the courses of foreign policy, domestic politics and U.S. culture. In some cases, such as Congress' giving the president virtually unlimited power to wage war under the 2001 authorization of the use of military force, the changes were initiated by the assault and a direct response to it.
    ...
    In the era of drone pilots sitting comfortably at domestic bases and small special forces units carrying out discrete missions, American might can be projected with relatively minimal risk to troops.

Should news outlets be responsible for the comments on their social media posts?

Context: Australian high court rules news publishers liable for comments left on their social posts.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - Making websites liable for user comments would effectively ban user comments. It would be infeasible to vet each comment before allowing it to appear, so organizations would just do away with the practice. If a comment is illegal (and given the importance of freedom of speech very few should be), it is the commenter and not the organization that should be held liable.


Yes - News outlets specifically should be held responsible for not monitoring their comment sections and allowing people t...



Unsure - The problem is that regulating social media posts well is prohibitively expensive. If news outlets had to actually reg...
