Facebook & Twitter Return To Capitol Hill; Internet Rules Among Issues “Piling Up” For Media Regulators In Biden Era

Click here to read the full article.

With the White House set to shift parties in January, powerful regulatory agencies the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission face sweeping issues with big implications for tech and entertainment, from antitrust and privacy to net neutrality, legal immunity for Internet platforms and media-cross ownership.

“They are piling up. Many issues that we were working on a decade ago are still around — the digital divide, net neutrality, copyright — and now we have others, like looking at big tech antitrust and Section 230. We need to see policymakers step up and take action,” said Christopher Lewis, president and CEO of policy nonprofit Public Knowledge, which promotes free expression and an open Internet.

Curating Internet content, or not, is by far the noisiest issue and the most political. The right and left both have concerns about how social media platforms operate,

In the days before the 2020 election was called for Joe Biden, President Trump was on Twitter — doing battle with Twitter.

As the incumbent tweeted through the slow vote-tallying process that would ultimately end in his loss, Twitter had covered much of Trump’s timeline with warning labels cautioning that the president’s posts contained disputed and potentially misleading information. Trump responded by tweeting a reference to Section 230, the obscure, decades-old law that shapes content moderation on social media.

Such feuds with Silicon Valley companies have been a through-line of Trump’s presidency; he has often criticized Facebook and Twitter for conspiring against him, siding with liberals and stifling conservative voices, even as Facebook helped get him elected and Twitter remained his soapbox of choice.

New website documents Albany during the swing era

Mike Pantone was a banjo and guitar player born in 1900 who in his early 20s joined the King Jazz Orchestra, one of the most prominent bands of the era in Albany. Starting a few years later, Pantone formed several jazz ensembles of his own and ran a music school on lower Madison Avenue in the city, where he made enough of an impression on one of his students, the future author William Kennedy, whose baseball games Pantone umpired, that he ended up, in real or fictionalized form, in several of Kennedy’s books.

Pantone, who also taught music in Voorheesville, in 1942 dropped dead in his home, at 342 Madison Ave. in Albany.

That’s where Michael Catoggio found him, in a manner of speaking.

Catoggio, the Albany-history librarian at the Albany Public Library in the 1970s, went on to spend three decades as a professor of library science in Alaska.
