Bennett Haselton writes After footage of James Foley's beheading by ISIS terrorists was posted
online on Tuesday, Twitter and Youtube elected to remove any footage
or links to the footage posted by users. Obviously this reduces
the incentive for terrorist groups to post such content, by shrinking
their audience, but it also reduces the public's access to information.
Would it be ethical to make the content available, if it was preceded
by an advertisement for a cause that runs counter to everything ISIS
stands for? Read below to see what Bennett has to say.
