Ireland aims to censor alleged “misinformation” online

Irish Public Expenditure Minister says Taxpayers funding NGOs that campaign for “hate speech” laws is “a price worth paying for having healthy debate in democracy”

Ireland’s Media Minister Catherine Martin is asked about the EU’s Digital Services Act, which aims to censor alleged “misinformation” online. Ireland’s media minister clearly is completely tone-deaf to the dangers of censorship for a democracy.

She just repeats a slogan about “misinformation,” when asked a serious question, proving just how dangerous it is to make State officials like her responsible for policing truth in the public square.
