US Justice Department to Hold Discuss on Consumer Protection, Tech Industry
The US Justice Department will be holding a “listening session” this week where officials from various states will be discussing issues related to social media and consumer protection.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that they will be discussing whether social media companies intentionally “stifle the free exchange of ideas” which echo the criticisms of President Donald Trump who accused social media firms of being biased against conservatives. The DoJ also said that it had invited a bipartisan group of 24 state attorneys general to the meeting on September 25th.
However, sources have said that an agenda has not yet been prepared and the DoJ is actually considering postponing the meeting.
