The Breakdown: evelyn douek on doctored media, platform response and responsibility
Do tech companies have a responsibility for false content beyond the impact of that content on the information environment on their sites?
In this episode of The Breakdown, Berkman Klein staff fellow Oumou Ly is joined by evelyn douek, an affiliate at BKC and S.J.D. candidate at Harvard Law School, to discuss manipulated media, platform takedown policies, and responsibility of platforms to society when doctored content stands to distort public perceptions of truth. Ly and douek are both participants of the Berkman Klein Center’s Assembly program, which currently focuses on topics relating to disinformation.
