GW WonkCast S3E11-3: Above the Fold: Facebook, Privacy, and Surveillance

The latest Above the Fold covers Mark Zuckerberg’s recent trip to Washington. Last month, news broke that the data firm Cambridge Analytica accessed the personal data of 87 million Facebook users. Are policies needed to regulate Facebook or can it regulate itself? Learn how the hearing went and more as co-Host Gabe Moss and Staff Writer Cory Lancaster join WRGW News anchors Harris Kay and Robert O’Shaughnessy.

Above the Fold: Everyday events in the news are driven by policy in both obvious and unexpected ways. Join the GW WonkCast team live on air with WRGW News to hear where policy and breaking news intersect.

Listen live on Fridays from 6:30-7:00 p.m. on WRGW’s website and on iHeartRadio!
