Sorry, everyone, Chris’ network connection dropped.
Thank you! Very powerful!
Would it be feasible or practical to have a commission on the media (including social platforms)?
Social media keeps being equated with the New Media, but it is not the News Media. How does the First Amendment come into play?
This article talks about the rise of Newsmax in the face of conservatives being mad at Fox. I guess my question is if we can’t put the genie back in the bottle (with Fox or Trump), what we do?
The Commission also just came out of the Nazi propaganda: We have to remember their era and circumstance.
Good point, Terry. That also was the era of the magic bullet theory of media effects. There was such concern over these powerful effects and a mindless mass of citizens.
I was curious on your thoughts on conservative social media users leaving Facebook and Twitter to go to Parler (a.k.a.Parlor)?
Is it something we will see more and more?
What is the First Amendment implications of Sec.230 of FCC policy and why does the president argue against?
I would recommend Dr. Alyssa Richardson’s new book “Witnessing While Black” for Black Twitter’s significance reporting news.
That actually raises the larger question of what distinguishes press from individual speech
Is there a requirement of process or qualification that you could imagine being created to make that distinction?
As I mentioned at the start, here’s a McConnell article from today, and it includes a quote from …. Al Cross! https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/mcconnell-treads-cautiously-in-trumps-post-election-fight/ar-BB1aWrt6
That is fairly reflective of my column that will be published in the morning
Thanks, everyone. Excellent evening — even with my intermittent connection!
