On December 4, 2022, the Business Insider interviewed Professor Doron Kalir on the recent “Twitter Files” controversy. Professor Kalir explained that because Twitter is not a “state actor,” the First Amendment is not properly implicated in this story. The article was titled, “You may think Twitter was wrong to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, but it was not a violation of the First Amendment.”
Professor Matthew Green spoke on the significance of Bostock v. Clayton County, Ga. and issues pertaining to religion and LGBTQ rights that Bostock raised but left unresolved. The discussion was part of a civil rights-civil liberties course at Barnard College.
