Media appearances on Meta’s news blocking

I’ve been featured on a number of TV and radio shows, as well as in news websites on Meta’s decision to block news on Facebook and Instagram.

Meta’s actions followed the passing of Bill C-18, the Online News Act, which compels Meta and Google to pay for news links on their services.

Here are some of my media appearances:
