How Media Fragmentation Fuels Online Toxicity

Recording: How Media Fragmentation Fuels Online Toxicity, Mar 9, 2019

Underneath the sleek veneer of social media platforms lies a grim reality: white supremacists, misogynists and other extremists exploit online media to spread hate and lies, grow their ranks, and harass anyone they disagree with. If left unaddressed by the platforms and lawmakers, this online abuse will only get worse, putting more individuals, communities -- especially women and people of color -- and our democracy in harm’s way. This panel will provide a framework for how we can fight back.
