Description

Social media sites shape the way many people view reality, but the corporations behind them are increasingly working to silence dissenting points of view. Big Tech companies are moderating, labeling, and removing conservative content and accounts with growing abandon, and the problem goes beyond Facebook and Twitter. Members of Congress have held numerous Big Tech hearings, but have yet to pass legislation to reform the main law Big Tech abuses as it censors speech, Section 230 of Communications Decency Act of 1996. Join as FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr discusses the scale of the problem, the services at risk for conservatives, and remedies for censorship that go beyond Section 230.
