Summary Lee C. Bollinger and Geoffrey R. Stone, together with an eminent collection of contributors, explore the various dimensions of the problems of "bad" speech-hate speech, disinformation and propaganda campaigns, and incitement of violence-on the internet, and in particular speech on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, in the American context and through the lens of the First Amendment. Bollinger and Stone argue that in determining a path forward, it is important to remember that the last time American society encountered major new communications technology-television and radio--the government established a federal agency to provide oversight and to issue regulations to protect and promote 'the public interest.' Featuring a variety of perspectives from some of America's leading experts on this hotly contested issue, this volume offers new insights and provides recommendations for the future of free speech in the social media era
