Rebecca MacKinnon on The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom [AUDIO]

February 3rd, 2012

Many commentators have debated whether the Internet is ultimately a force for freedom of expression and political liberation, or for alienation, and repression. Rebecca MacKinnon — Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, cofounder of Global Voices, and a former CNN Bureau Chief for Beijing and Tokyo — discusses her new book, Consent of the Network, and warns that a convergence of unchecked government actions and unaccountable company practices is threatening the future of democracy and human rights around the world.

Mackinnon is joined by Ethan Zuckerman, Micah Sifry, and Andrew Lewman.
