Due Sunday, April 18, 2021, 11:59 PM
Listen to the entire podcast; it should be apparent in your paper that you did so. Use no outside resources in your response–this is about the podcast. Write in your own words a fully developed response paper in which you address the following:
1) How does the First Amendment Freedom of Speech apply to social media?
2) What have social media sites done recently to control and/or eliminate disinformation on their sites? Does it appear that they have been successful?
3) The courts have said that free speech is among the most important rights we have, but there are limitations. Discuss the importance of free speech in a democracy as mentioned on the podcast as well as the importance of limitations on speech.
