Video of NYU Panel on Hate Speech on Social Media

I discuss with Nadine Strossen and Jacob Mchangama what the Internet has come to


Earlier this month, I was on a panel entitled "Hate Speech on Social Media: Is There a Way to a More Civil Discourse?" at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute with Nadine Strossen and Jacob Mchangama. We discussed a host of issues including free speech before and after the advent of the Internet, social media platform liability, the effectiveness of counterspeech, fake news and its effects on democracy, and other themes.
