Cyrus Krohn, internet thought-leader, political activist and author of the recently published Bombarded: How to Fight Back Against the Online Assault on Democracy is not surprised that the bombardment has continued long past election day given the fuel from Trump to continue the fight and further divide the country. Recent Senate Judiciary hearing with CEOs of the tech companies revealed agreement about need for regulations of the Wild West of social media, particularly with the challenge of information and disinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines. Cyrus shines a light on the need for authentication of individual identities, information warfare and the threat from Tik Tok weaponizing data about US citizens, need for better civics education and talking with kids about trusted sources of information.
