Politics and Social Media: Should We Use Exit, Voice, or Loyalty?

“Once social media sites take on the responsibility of policing speech,” David Harsanyi wrote at Reason in 2018, “they are transforming themselves into adjudicators of what ideas are tolerable on purportedly open platforms.

That’s a precarious position moving forward.” Boy howdy is it.

On today’s Reason Roundtable podcast. Nick Gillespie, Peter Suderman, Matt Welch, and special guest star Stephanie Slade debate the appropriate responses both to Twitter’s move to suppress a New York Post article about Hunter Biden, and also the reflex by too many politicians to retaliate by rewriting Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The gang also talks about how to read the latest polls, what everyone learned from last week’s presidential townhalls, and why Slade is even considering a vote for Joe Biden.
