Kara Swisher is executive editor of Recode, host of the Recode Decode podcast, and a New York Times columnist. On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, Ben Domenech sits down with Swisher in her San Francisco home to critique the political missteps of tech gods like Facebook and Twitter.
They discuss free speech, trouble-making bots, social media, and the misconceptions about Silicon Valley’s political ideology.
“Do you want a platform where that [vile] is welcome or not? They just have to pick,” Swisher said. “It’s not a First Amendment thing. They are not a public platform. They are not a public square, they are Facebook.”
