Listening to the most powerful man in media…

 

So, sort of free speech.

That was my thought last week as I sat in an auditorium at Georgetown University in Washington listening to the most powerful man in media (and, arguably, in politics) present a word salad of a speech claiming that giving people a voice online is the most important function of the vast social-media ecosystem that he has built.

So important, he seemed to be saying, that all of the pain from the hate speech, disinformation and actual violence caused by this “Mark Zuckerberg Production” — what the co-founder and chief executive of Facebook had at the bottom of the site’s pages in its early days — pale in comparison. Serious problems have to be tolerated for now because giving people a voice is paramount.
