The spread of misinformation and disinformation is more prevalent than ever before. It's putting trust in the government and public health officials at risk during this time of crisis.
Misinformation and disinformation are putting the clear distribution of accurate information in jeopardy and sowing mistrust in our elections. The conspiracy theories around COVID-19 are a prime example.
False information spreads fast and dangerously -- fact-checking on social media platforms that regulate themselves is not enough. We need action from Congress.
Congress must take legislative action so tech giants are held accountable to stop the spread of false information. It is urgent that Congress establishes guardrails to prevent the origination and spread of false information online (both foreign and domestic) and require social media companies to implement robust labeling and algorithmic removal measures of such content.
