DC in June 2020

Chris Joyner, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports that social media bans of extremists have become effective, greatly reducing the views of material from groups promoting political violence and extremism, link.

In the meantime, Parler, trying to rehab itself, has drawn controversy by cooperating with the FBI in reporting actual threats or evidence of involvement in the January 6 insurrection.
