The United Nations is calling on social media to block hate speech and stop online campaigns which target minorities. It comes after UN experts accused Facebook of allowing its platform to be used to incite violence against Rohingya in Myanmar. There’s also been criticism here in the US of sites like Facebook and Twitter allowing hate speech. However free speech advocates fear it could lead to a path of over regulation. For analysis, RT America’s Natasha Sweatte is joined by democratic grassroots strategist, Robin Biro and Ted Harvey, from the Committee to Defend the President.
