That's literally called the marketplace of ideas and is the basis for how free speech works.The chicks aren’t a podcast or political talking radio. Point is I think it’s a slippery slope to allow artist to use their leverage to control whats put on the airwaves. I don’t care what it’s for or against.
God, some of you guys are so dumb on this stuff. A) free speech only applies to the government. B) controlling speech is the marketplace. If the market says your idea is dumb and we don't want to hear it, it's not censorship. It's everybody saying take your crap somewhere else. It's how it's supposed to work. No government intevention needed, society took care of it.
Just cause Joe Rogan can say whatever he wants doesn't mean me, you or Neil Young have to listen to it or give him the platform to say it. For 97 to argue it's censorship is so dumb it is an insult for those who fight against actual censorship. For Harrison to argue its a slippery slope is so dumb it's an insult to people who understand a high school version of free speech, capitalism and the marketplace of ideas.
