Suzanne Nossel Calls for Digital Political Content Protections

Former Fellow Suzanne Nossel (’97), the chief executive officer of PEN America, wrote an op-ed for The New York Times detailing how stalled truth-in-advertising legislation and fact-checking initiatives are necessary to safeguard U.S. elections (“Fool Us Once, Shame on You. Fool Us in 2020, Shame on Us,” Dec. 17). “American democracy has a target on its back: Disinformation has become a firm fixture of political campaigns in the digital age,” Suzanne said.
