Companies like all of the news agencies?

James Gunn being returned to creative helm at Disney has me a feeling a sense that we've crested as a society to finally no longer suffering Nazis the attention they demand in bad faith.

Yeeeeahh, I don't news networks would take up the offer to stream mass-murder live.


Other than Fox News, of course.

Some have in the past, most wouldn't intentionally.  But they do turn the psychos into celebrities.  So I was more responding to the link description than contents of TFA.

This is a good article that covers why it isn't a trivial task to block that content:

I call shenanigans.  The MPAA has programs constantly scouring websites, YouTube, BitTorrent, etc looking for and finding illegal copies of movies.

Facebook, google, Twitter all make money from this and that is why they find it difficult to block.

Bingo. They don't want a modicum of responsibility, or more importantly, regulatory oversight. Much cheaper to fuel murderous Nazis, and keep explaining "no one could've predicted it."
