On this episode of Digital Trends Live, host Greg Nibler talks the top tech of the day, including President Donald Trump’s TikTok executive order, the Google Plus class-action lawsuit, SpaceX launches another satellite, Pepper the robot reminds Europe to wear a mask, and more.
Nibler then speaks with Maria Ressa, journalist and co-founder and chief executive officer of Rappler, and Ramona S. Diaz, director of A Thousand Cuts, a film that shows how the rise of social media has enabled autocratic governments to weaponize the internet with propaganda.
