TESTING TESTING The Tech Giants, Monopoly Power, and Public Discourse

TEST TESTING TESTING TESTING TESTING

Columbia Journalism School Joseph D. Jamail Lecture Hall

A small number of tech companies now control the digital public square, or large parts of it. These companies have an enormous influence over who can speak, what can be said, and who gets heard. During this symposium, we’ll examine the extent and nature of the technology giants’ power to structure, shape, and distort public discourse, and we'll consider whether anti-monopoly tools might usefully be deployed to limit, expose, or counter this power.
