What should social media policy look like during an election season, if the goal is to support election integrity and trust in the outcome of an election?
Watch this discussion I moderated on Wednesday, exploring the relationship between freedom of speech and election integrity, particularly as it applies to social media policy, between Nadine Strossen and John Yoo. Strossen is the emerita John Marshall II Professor at New York Law School and served as the first woman national President of the American Civil Liberties Union, from 1991-2008. Yoo is the Emanual S. Heller Professor at University of California at Berkeley School of Law, a Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and Visiting Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.
