21st Century Wire's Podcast

In this episode of the Patrick Henningsen Show on TNT Radio which aired on July 18, 2023, Patrick talks with former US State Dept. official and executive director of Foundation for Freedom Online, Mike Benz, about the rise of the public-private mass-censorship industry based in Washington DC and Silicon Valley, but whose tentacles now span internationally. Federal agencies like the DHS (and its censorship arm CISA), the FBI and others - have built a command and control communications pipeline directly into Big Tech, and deploy weaponized A.I. tools - where they can enact speech control operations and manipulate political outcomes, and even elections. We discuss its emergence following Crimea’s breakaway from Ukraine in 2014, and its proliferation in the aftermath of the 2016 election of Trump. All this and more.
