Would it be feasible or practical to have a commission on the media (including social platforms)?
Terry Keys
01:27:37
Social media keeps being equated with the New Media, but it is not the News Media. How does the First Amendment come into play?
Jennifer Greer
01:28:16
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?
Terry Keys
01:28:18
The Commission also just came out of the Nazi propaganda: We have to remember their era and circumstance.
Jennifer Greer
01:29:24
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.
Ryan Craig
01:30:12
I was curious on your thoughts on conservative social media users leaving Facebook and Twitter to go to Parler (a.k.a.Parlor)?
Ryan Craig
01:30:31
Is it something we will see more and more?
Kakie Urch
01:35:15
What is the First Amendment implications of Sec.230 of FCC policy and why does the president argue against?
Kakie Urch

I would recommend Dr. Alyssa Richardson’s new book “Witnessing While Black” for Black Twitter’s significance reporting news.
Chris Larmour
01:39:59
That actually raises the larger question of what distinguishes press from individual speech
Chris Larmour
01:40:49
Is there a requirement of process or qualification that you could imagine being created to make that distinction?
Jennifer Greer
01:41:46
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
Al Cross
01:43:55
That is fairly reflective of my column that will be published in the morning
Terry Keys
01:43:58
Thanks, everyone. Excellent evening — even with my intermittent connection!
