SATURDAYS, JUNE 6–20  /  1:00–2:30 PM CT

We now know a great deal about the ways in which social media platforms were used by foreign and domestic “bad actors” to manipulate and distort the 2016 electoral process and inflict lasting damage on our body politic. What should we expect in the 2020 cycle? Have we entered the age of “Surveillance Capitalism”? How worried should we be? And what is the role of social media in the spread of information, misinformation, and disinformation in a time of global pandemic? Is there any good news to report? Join Jim and find out.
