For everyone's sake, let's stop using this argument. Freedom of speech applies to the government limiting what you can say - not private parties. The GDQ guys are fully within their rights to tell this guy he can't use their stream as a platform, for example.

Doesn't make them any less cowardly, but y'know.

It’s important to bring up though. Freedom of speech is a value before it’s a law. The fact that it doesn’t extend into this new privately mediated public space is because there was no way of imagining such a possibility.

I wouldn’t not bring it up, because the tension points to this new possibility of corporate Sharia law, which supercedes sovereign national law by some de facto principle of the market.
