Trump vs Social Media: What Does it Mean For Free Speech?

Last Thursday, United States President Donald Trump signed an executive order targeting social media companies. This happened after Twitter labelled two of his Tweets as "potentially misleading." Trump said he made the move in the name of protecting freedom of speech. Does this make sense or does Trump have a warped understanding of the first amendment of the US constitution? We talk to Assistant Professor Peter Beattie, who is a retired lawyer and academic whose area of expertise include political psychology, media, and global political economy, to find out what Donald Trump's executive order means for free speech.
