Robert Kaminski quoted in MarketWatch

"Zuckerberg and Dorsey get a congressional tongue lashing, but does D.C. have more punishment in store?" by Chris Matthews


Robert Kaminski quoted in Chris Matthew's MarketWatch article, "Zuckerberg and Dorsey get a congressional tongue lashing, but does D.C. have more punishment in store?"

The article reads:

Robert Kaminski, managing director at Capital Alpha Partners is more skeptical that yesterday’s hearing made any impactful legislation more likely. “The companies are now in a paradox where they have pledged to do the impossible: to be forums for free expression, but not misinformation; to censor political speech, but not allow interference in elections; to be useful and engaging, but not addictive,” he told MarketWatch. 

These contrary demands by Democrats and Republicans make significant legislation less likely. “They are threatened with legislation, but there are too many perceived problems to make progress on any single one. I call it the Chaos Theory of Big Tech,” he added.
