U.S. Government Asks Facebook To Tighten Censorship In 'Radicalisation' War

Yournewswire

The Justice Department met with Facebook Inc, Twitter, and Google – reaching out to them for help following the governments failed attempts to thwart ISIS’ presence online.

The federal government is not best placed to counter extremist online recruitment efforts with messaging of its own, said George Selim, director of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) office that coordinates the government’s “countering violent extremism” (CVE) activities.

The goal now, he said, is to help “communities and young people to amplify their own messages.”
