Are social media platforms still open public squares, or controlled speech zones censored on the whims of favoured governments? Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch and host of this show, is joined by Matthew Lesh (Adam Smith Institute) and Rachael Jolley (Index on Censorship) to analyse the impact of the pandemic on free speech online.
