Description

A.M. Edition for Oct. 4. Former Facebook employee Frances Haugen says that her goal is to help prompt change at the social-media giant, not to stir anger toward it. WSJ's Betsy McKay discusses the push for a vaccine against all coronaviruses. The U.S. looks to resume trade talks with China. And the WSJ's Caitlin Ostroff on the Fed's planned review of a possible digital dollar. Peter Granitz hosts. Correction: The documents that Frances Haugen gathered showed Facebook knew that its algorithms foster discord. A previous version of this podcast mischaracterized Facebook's internal research as having found that the platform contributed to violence including the Capitol riot on January 6th.
