    And I totally resent the fact that paleotologists started putting feathers on us. We're scaley lizards, not fluffing peacocks.

    Actually, one thing about the 90s I am missing....Disney Renaissance.

    Won't work outside the US though because no one else uses that boomer term any way.

    Does this answer your question ?

    FB has joined the establishment.

    I used to think India had this leftist problem i didn't realise it was so widespread in the west and we see the direction the US is going in.

    Might not look it in the political space but this is who the gatekeepers of information are.

    US has the most liberal freedom of speech. Their limit is incitement. Most countries do not even get that close.

    What people on FB/twitter are going to be getting is a watered down version. Business wise this will work well in the world since most countries have more restrictions.

    Private org, unfortunately. They decide.

    But it does enable parties of the same persuasion to create campaigns to attack select targets to push agendas and that is what we will keep an eye out for.

    Pulled quite the number on their coverage of the Delhi riots. Oh i wonder how they will spin the American ones now.

    Gatekeeper, this is the word I was looking for some time.

    Well, FB has not joined the establishment, Mark is just trying to save his wealth and a$$ from President Trumps' short-term wrath. In India, he & FB does the opposite. So, this is, what I said earlier, money minded. He plays both sides and profits from it. The businessman.

    Going by the backgrounds of the people on this 'oversight' board. i'd say they're the same clowns sitting in the NYT, WAPO, WSJ, CNN, Guardian & BBC.

    Establishment media is what i mean. The ones Trump rails about. After a few experiences i know what he means.

    Mark has/control ~ 58% of the voting rights in FB, oversight board & board members are sitting ducks in FB.

    Establishment media, which is left leaning, have only themselves to blame. They capture only one side of the story, one that they believe in. In the US, we have Fox, which is rightwing, and it stokes conspiracy theories. When do we get one center-right media outlet that can bury the propaganda that the left dishes out everyday. We do have Zee News in India though, mostly center-right.

    You may want to look at this site. Well respected and acknowledged that they pretty much get the US media pegged correctly.

    "Zoomer" is probably a temporary label before we get something else. Millennials used to be Gen Y until Millennial stuck.

    Zoomers might be the Gig Generation or something odd like that.
