Brian Kelsey / Steven Hill: Private Schools / Online Platforms

Broadcast Running Time: 29:49

We have a double feature on today’s podcast.  First up is a brief interview with Brian Kelsey (libertyjusticecenter.org), Senior Attorney with the Liberty Justice Center.  He alerts all private schools that there is money available for Covid relief – if you know where to look and ask for it.  If you don’t, it reverts back to the public schools.

We then transition to the debate over whether online platforms should be considered publishers or editors.  Political writer and author Steven Hill (steven-hill.com) joins us to explain both sides of the issue and how policing what Big Tech companies are doing is far more complicated than it sounds.  He looks at the differences between the internet in America versus the internet in Europe and the effects of the Facebook law in Germany and Section 230 here.  He also discusses algorithms, psychographic profiles, manipulated searches, and surveillance capitalism.  Is anyone working to solve these problems?
