Big Tech: Content Moderation, Terrorism, and Disinformation, New America online

[ONLINE] – Big Tech: Content Moderation, Terrorism, and Disinformation

In recent years, technology and social media companies have taken on a growing role in moderating content on their platforms. That growing role has brought criticism from a number of vectors, and some states have moved to restrict moderation via legislation. Although much of the political debate around moderation policies is occurring elsewhere, the debates and legislation could shape companies’ efforts against terrorism on their platforms, an issue that has itself seen debate.

To discuss the intersection of content moderation, disinformation, and terrorism, New America welcomes Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, CEO of Valens Global and author of a recent report “Redrawing the Lines” examining how legislation regarding content moderation could affect counterterrorism efforts, and Karen J. Greenberg, Director of the Center on National Security at Fordham Law and a fellow with New America’s International Security program.

Join the conversation online using #TechandTerrorism and following @NewAmericaISP.
