This Colbert interview with Maria Ressa is short but packed with insights: youtube.com/watch?v=xpWevZ5yQz

Maria Ressa is a journalist, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and writer of "How to Stand Up to a Dictator".

In this interview, she talks about how Facebook, Twitter, and some other forms of Social Media function as a component of Surveillance Capitalism and use their fact-distorting power to undermine democracy.

"If you don't have facts, you can't have truth.
Without truth, you can't have trust.
Without these three, you have no shared reality.
We can't solve any problems.
We have no democracy.
That's what social media has done: is has come in and used 'free speech' to stifle free speech."
