I like your approach that this is more a symptom of the much deeper issue of Big Tech's influence. Companies like Meta, Twitter, and YouTube have a crazy amount of power over a) what is seen and read by people and b) the livelihoods of their creators (in YT's case).

The policy approach to Big Tech companies is novel because they're really a new kind of thing. Yes they're private companies, but they are also these monopolies on what has become the town square. And the town square probably shouldn't be subject to partisan or ideological decisions being made, it isn't healthy for discourse.
