Tech Tuesday: Social Media Censorship

Aug 13, 2019

The White House is calling for significant changes in how large tech companies manage speech on their websites.

A draft executive order from the White House would put the Federal Communications Commission in charge of developing new regulations clarifying how and when the law protects social media websites when they remove or suppress speech on their platforms.

Today on Tech Tuesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher: social media censorship and more.

SpaceX successfully launched its Crew Dragon spacecraft over the weekend from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The Crew Dragon is the first commercially built and operated American crew spacecraft to leave Earth. It arrived safely at the International Space Station, where it's expected to stay docked for five days before returning to our home planet. 

The flight is expected to bring NASA one step closer to sending humans back into space, which hasn’t been done in nearly a decade. 

Today on All Sides, the SpaceX Launch, safety online for kids, and more.
