This week, the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights released a report on YouTube that I helped write with the Center’s Deputy Director, Paul Barrett.
YouTube is generally understood to have avoided the scrutiny of journalists, researchers and lawmakers, at least relative to other social media platforms like Facebook. But there is a cost to flying under the radar.
To address some of the key issues, this podcast episode features two segments. The first is a conversation with Paul Barrett, and the second with two of the sources for the report, University of Washington associate professor and Center for an Informed Public cofounder Kate Starbird and Mnemonic Associate Director of Advocacy Dia Kayyali.
A transcript is forthcoming.
