“How can you have a digital society where you don’t even know what the rules are?”
In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Kalev Leetaru, a media fellow at the RealClearFoundation and senior fellow at the George Washington University Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.
Instead of repealing Section 230, he argues for an amendment to Section 230 that would compel social media companies to make available extensive dataset collections on what they’re censoring, why each individual post or account was censored, and how the social media companies’ algorithms decide what content is boosted or demoted.
While some argue for repealing Section 230 immunity for social media companies altogether, Leetaru says it would have the opposite of the intended effect. Instead of decreasing censorship, it would only cause social media companies to become more avid censors as they try to avoid costly lawsuits.
