  1. So she was against censorship in South Africa, so she moved to America to support censorship here? Censorship is censorship whether it’s government or private sector. How does she reconcile this? Very strange.

  2. As with all such discussions, you have to consider the situation when (not if) your worst enemy gets to make the decisions in the policy.

    Sure, “online regulation” is fine if you let me make decisions about what is and is not acceptable, but what if is your political rivals making the decisions? Look at how the political class reacts to the decisions of Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos.

  3. Another day, another activist hire at the College of Communication under Mariette DiChristina’s leadership. Like other recent recruits, Ms. Grabe positions herself as a crusader against disinformation and censorship but is deeply committed to both.
