Episode 211 – The MK Who’s Fighting Facebook And Twitter

Israel recently went through a traumatic year of election cycles in which it seemed like there were no winners – only losers. But eventually, amidst all the political gunfire and smoke, a government was formed. One of the figures that emerged from that year is Michal Cotler-Wunsh.

Michal is the daughter of a former Canadian Justice Minister and the former Parliamentary Secretary of Begin’s Gahal and Likud parties. So it’s no surprise that she’s risen to such prominence.

Michal joined the Knesset as a member of Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party after the March elections. She recently rose to national and international headlines after leading a string of hearings of the largest social media companies including Facebook, Twitter and Google, questioning them on their censorship policies last month.

We are very excited and very honored to be joined today by Michal Cotler-Wunsh to talk about censorship on social media, about the protests going on in Israel and about much much more!
