Yesterday, the American Principles Project and the Lincoln Network co-hosted a virtual discussion spotlighting the debate over how lawmakers should approach policy questions relating to Big Tech, especially in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The hour-long discussion covered a wide range of issues, including:

  • What is censorship, and are Big Tech companies engaged in it?
  • Are Big Tech companies monopolies?
  • Should Section 230 be reformed to protect free speech on Big Tech platforms?
  • How can policymakers promote free speech online while also stemming the tide of obscenity and other objectionable material?

The discussion was moderated by Marshall Kosloff of the Lincoln Network and featured a panel of four tech policy experts:

  • Alec Stapp, Director of Technology Policy, Progressive Policy Institute
  • Matthew Feeney, Director, Cato Institute’s Project on Emerging Technologies
  • Rachel Bovard, Senior Advisor,  Internet Accountability Project
  • Terry Schilling, Executive Director, American Principles Project
