Youtube and Facebook have become our de-facto town square. When they deplatform you, you have effectively lost your free speech rights. Tech Titans are determining who is allowed to have free speech. They just deplatformed 2 Bakersfield, CA doctors who were sharing their Coronavirus data.
Dr. Gold graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. (She completed her residency in Emergency Medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York.) Dr. Gold worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well as for the Chairman of the Labor & Human Resources Committee. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines.
