POLL: Do We Need A New Government Agency To Protect Us From Social Media?

Share this story:

Ann Ravel, the former Democratic chair of the Federal Election Commission who controversially pushed to regulate the internet during her time leading the commission, is now suggesting a new government enforcement agency be established to help tech companies discover questionable communications from social media sites in an effort to find alleged disinformation campaigns.

Ravel claimed that this would allow social media sites—such as Facebook and Twitter—to hand over “lots of communications” from their sites to the government agency.

Do you think we need a new government agency to monitor social media?
