Fake News or Freedom of Speech? hotlou happy hour
Yesterday YouTube removed a video of two doctors “emphatically” assuring the public that the shelter in place order was unnecessary. The topic became polarizing and sparked a debate over how far social media platforms should go to eliminate “fake news”.
Hot Mike #3 and I will discuss the video, the doctors, and the greater issue of whether social networks have an obligation, duty, legal requirement, or otherwise to remove content and monitor sites for fake news.
