In buying Twitter, Elon Musk says he will bring relaxed content rules to boost free speech on the platform, but what does that mean? Many people confuse freedom of speech with freedom from consequence. They also commonly confuse the protections granted under the First Amendment as applying to interactions between private citizens & businesses. Outside of limiting the government's powers, is there such a thing as freedom of speech? And if there is, should we regulate big tech platforms to allow anyone to say anything? Shelly Palmer, advanced media professor in residence for the Newhouse School's New Media Management program, hosts a panel discussion of industry leaders will explore freedom of speech & what it means in today's political & tech landscapes.
