Has Democracy Been Hacked?

 

Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple: Big Tech has a hand in everything we do: what we think, what we buy, how we vote… And as seen by the last presidential campaign, the tech companies that wield such tremendous influence over our lives are themselves subject to interference and manipulation. Still we continue to consume our news, share our opinions, and conduct our lives by way of Facebook,  Google, Apple, and all the rest. What is the way forward for Democracy in the Digital Age?  Join the conversation with Gabriel Stricker, journalist Noam Cohen, and our moderator, award-winning journalist and author Bianca Bosker.
