Seth had the day off today so it was just Jay, Grant, and Park. In the first part of the show, the guys were joined by attorney Kyle Sammin to discuss his latest piece in the magazine called, Solving the social media standoff. Kyle goes into some possible solutions that don’t go as far as eliminating Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act but perhaps adding a new category specifically related to big social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook.
Also discussed is the renewed fight over statues and how people warned several years ago it would go beyond Confederate figures and begin to target figures such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
Finally, they talk about the phenomenon of “call-out culture” where people are using social media to do what they think is good, but really is nothing more than an avenue for some to make money and others to engage in adult-sanctioned cyber-bullying.
There are also the preview picks for next week.
