“I think that anti-trust is a part of this. I think we want to have a proliferation of different types of content moderation and different sorts of engagement, but as we’ve also seen, that’s not going to solve all of the problems… A lot of this has to do with what are the problems we’re trying to get at, what are the motivations of the various players and how do we have a public policy that is respectful of the first amendment, that is careful… there are very real dangers here with acting in a rush and trying to suppress a wide range of speech as dangerous… I do think there is a role here for federal regulation to provide appropriate guidelines and solutions that are narrowly focused on imminent danger.”
