Description

NYU professor and data scientist Vasant Dhar joins CBS Mornings co-host Tony Dokoupil to discuss how a section of a 1996 law, known as Section 230, prevents internet companies from being held liable for users posts and its algorithm. Dhar, host of the "Brave New World" podcast, explains that the rules have not been set for the internet of today. This comes as Facebook is being sued over the death of a California man by two men who met on Facebook. Dhar is calling for Congress to update its regulation of Big Tech, similar to how the financial markets have been regulated.
