A Warning from the Surgeon General, the Battle of Misinformation, and the Rise of CryptoPACs

The Surgeon General calls for warning labels on social media platforms: should Congress like his proposal? Then, former Stanford researcher Renée DiResta joins us to talk about her new book on modern propaganda and whether we're losing the war against disinformation. And finally, Times reporter David Yaffe-Bellany stops by to tell us how cryptocurrencies could reshape the 2024 election.
