Still No Ministry of Truth

Amidst the unrest in the US, President Donald Trump appears to have escalated his row with social media, signing an executive order which would allow for new regulations on social media content. To help us understand the implications of this order, as well as what it would mean for social media companies, we speak to Alexander Howard, Director of the Digital Democracy Project at Demand Progress, a think tank focused on internet freedom and open government.
