Over the past two months, the Wall Street Journal’s “Facebook Files” series has chronicled the ways that Facebook and its platforms favor elites, harm teenagers’ mental health, encourage toxicity, take weak action to stop human trafficking and drug cartels, suppress political movements, and ignore the concerns of their employees that Facebook can clean up its act. On Monday, November 1, 2021, the lead reporter of the “Facebook Files,” WSJ reporter Jeff Horwitz, joined us in the John F. Kennedy, Jr. Forum to discuss his groundbreaking reporting on the harm that Facebook may be inflicting on its users and democracy. Dr. Latanya Sweeney, the Daniel Paul Professor of the Practice of Government and Technology at the Harvard Kennedy School, moderated the conversation.
