Notes from the Electronic Cottage 10/22/20: Free Speech Week 2020

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

It’s Free Speech Week in the US this week, which brings up an important question: what does Free Speech actually mean in the digital age? Is our traditional idea that the answer to bad speech is more speech still relevant? Today, we’ll look at our First Amendment context for Free Speech. In following programs, we’ll look at different responses to this question in the digital age.
