Emmi Bevensee, writer and editor at C4SS, and data scientist and misinformation researcher at Rebellious Data, was interviewed recently on the DOOMED podcast, “a leftist politics and culture show for our terrible times.”
Emmi joined host Matt Binder to discuss:
how white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and misinformation peddlers are using peer-to-peer technology to continue spreading their hateful beliefs even after being deplatformed from the big tech companies. We breakdown what P2P is, the various tech being used, is BitChute really peer-to-peer?, and much more!
They talk about some of the challenges involved in monitoring and investigating fascists as they are forced off of mainstream platforms, how anti-fascists can and are adapting as technology evolves, and how we will need to increasingly take responsibility into our own hands instead of outsourcing moderation to unaccountable tech companies.
