Tatenda Musapatike, the Founder and CEO of the Voter Formation Project, discusses how social media companies, like Facebook, proliferate, and profit from political disinformation. She also explains why it takes so long for social media companies to respond to disinformation, and groups that could potentially foment violence. Additionally, we discuss whose job it is to hold social media companies accountable for their role in incubating, and spreading harmful disinformation, and misinformation. Lastly, we discuss The Facebook Papers.
