Presented by Bloomberg, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the First Amendment Coalition.
Social media platforms face intense and growing pressure to rein in misinformation and extremist content. On the left, presidential candidates are threatening to break up Big Tech while the right has pushed to alter Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — a foundation of the modern Internet. With the tech giants facing a nearly impossible balancing act, will free speech suffer? Has it already? And as we enter an especially fraught election year, what should the companies do to ensure First Amendment rights are upheld while also preventing threats to the democratic process?
