In this week's episode, April and Laura welcome Ryan Hartwig, president of the Hartwig Foundation for Free Speech and author of "Behind the Mask of Facebook: A Whistleblower's Shocking Story of Big Tech Bias and Censorship." They're discussing his experience working as a Facebook content moderator, what led him to become a whistleblower and how large media companies intersect with the PR landscape today. April and Laura also chat about John Oliver's recent exposé on sponsored content, and deliver a double dose of PR News with an article on fact-checking from Matt Taibbi on Substack. Our hosts also share some advice for navigating your next interview (from both sides of the desk!) and read an Anonymous PR Horror Story about an AI meeting recap that went rogue.
