WNYC
Intermediaries are absolutely necessary to ensure that free speech online is robust and strong, and when they're afraid to stand up for their users' right to free speech and help them get that speech out, then users don't have much of a right at all.

WNYC

The goals the U.S. has around the world, whether they're in climate, or dealing with the global economy, or dealing with Iran and its nuclear pretensions, require a cooperative arrangement with the other key members of the UN Security Council or we will make no progress.
