Brief Encounter | Medicine, media and moderation under a Biden administration
In this Brief Encounter Dr. V riffs on the future of social media moderation under a Biden administration. As social media has become our mainstream media, Facebook and Twitter have taken a hands-off approach to moderation. But in the 2020 presidential campaign they set the precedent for a new kind of control. This episode covers what little the president-elect has said about social moderation. What will this mean for citizens and health professionals going forward? How does censorship stifle the scientific process and how is editorial control finding its way into other aspects of media? Using the polarization of the medical community around COVID, Dr. V makes the provocative appeal for diversity in conversation and tolerance of alternate views.
