Can big tech handle the election?

Episode Notes

Facebook says it will ban political ads the week before the November election. POLITICO's Steven Overly breaks down how the effort aims to prevent the spread of misinformation — and looks at whether big tech giants are going to be able to handle a chaotic election that could be ripe for misinformation. Plus, House Democrats call for an investigation into whether the Trump administration violated the Hatch Act during the RNC. And the EU urges the US reverse sanctions against staff on the International Criminal Court.
