The New York Times is now among the many outlets and pundits latching on to the Buffalo mass shooting as a means to propagate calls for censorship, having recently published a piece that questions “whether the ability to livestream should be so easily accessible” following the events there.

When it comes to the Buffalo mass shooting that resulted in 10 victims being fatally shot, the media focus regarding the incident has largely revolved around this purported manifesto and the live video feed uploaded to Twitch by the suspect while he was actively shooting the victims.

But the narrative being pushed in the wake of the Buffalo mass shooting isn’t predominantly centered around things like gun control – although some are highlighting the topic – but rather, politicians and pundits are taking aim at speech they deem to be dangerous.

The mainstream media has mostly labeled Fox News host Tucker Carlson as the de facto public enemy number one, alleging topics covered on his show pertaining to illegal immigration were the fodder that led to the suspected shooter killing all those people inside of the grocery store in Buffalo.

Yet, the New York Times decided to set their sights recently on social media, asking whether social media platforms “have a responsibility to rein in hateful and violent content.” The aforementioned topic is hardly novel, elected officials and news pundits have been banging the cudgel of censoring speech on social media for several years now.

In the Times article, they admitted that online streaming platform Twitch was able to cut the live feed featuring the massacre approximately two minutes into the gunfire going off, which the Times claimed, “was the best that could reasonably be expected.”

Yet, the Times suggested that since other people online were able to obtain and share copies of the mass shooting video that was livestreamed to Twitch, people shouldn’t be able to livestream “so easily.”

“The fact that the response did not prevent the video of the attack from being spread widely on other sites also raises the issue of whether the ability to livestream should be so easily accessible.”

In the wake of the shooting, New York Governor Kathy Hochul went so far as to call Twitch an “accomplice” in the mass shooting since they didn’t end the live feed “within a second.” News outlet Axios also mirrored similar sentiments in suggesting Twitch is partly to blame for the shooting.

As noted earlier, the big push now coming from the media and politicians is that speech needs to be shuttered online – so much so that even online streaming needs to have more barriers put in place – because now the narrative is that free speech has a direct link to mass casualty/murder events. Unfortunately, there will be some who hear this peddled by media outlets and politicians and will champion the idea.
