Some of the revelations to come out of the so-called “Twitter Files” are pretty shocking, especially in the way they describe an intimate partnership of censorship between government agencies and social media platforms. In the latest data dump, journalist Matt Taibbi discusses the remarkable discovery that following the 2016 election Democratic Senator Mark Warner had actively badgered Twitter representatives to drum up examples of Russian bots on the platform spreading pro-Trump propaganda.
Guest host Aaron Maté and Taibbi discuss the problems involved in a sitting U.S. Senator making demands that a social media platform generate evidence to support a baseless conspiracy theory promoted by a powerful political party.
