The Research Director of the Knight First Amendment Center at Colombia 

In the NYT,  @jameeljaffer  and I argue that the new Facebook Oversight Board should push FB for a full investigation of how the platform may have contributed to the Jan. 6 Capitol riots before they take up the Trump suspension question.
"Facebook’s ‘Supreme Court’ Faces Its First Major Test" 

Jaffer is the The Executive Director.  The New Yorker piece, by Kate Klonick, in context
Stoller is good.
“Fundamentally American”? No. Facebook represents a fundamentally un-American view of free speech. We have never had public policy to centralize control of communications and media like this before.

To be fair, both those were written before today's news. A lot of people are going to be ashamed of their earlier positions, including Balkin. This is going to hit. Palestine will take a little longer. 

But this really is becoming fun.
