Coming up on Connections: Friday, October 4
First hour: Discussing the intersection of free speech, politics, and social media
Second hour: Previewing "Current Seen"
A federal court recently ruled that politicians can't block followers on Twitter. The decision came after critics of President Trump sued him because he blocked them on the platform. The court ruled that followers would miss out on access to politicians and public information provided by them, and that violates their First Amendment rights. We discuss the intersection of free speech, politics, and social media with our guests:
- Roy Gutterman, director of the Tully Center for Free Speech, and associate professor of magazine, news, and digital journalism at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University
- Scott Malouf, attorney whose practice is focused on the intersection of social media and the law
Then in our second hour, we preview "Current Seen," a new visual art exhibition happening at a number of venues across Rochester. We’re joined by participating artists and curators who discuss their work and the contemporary art scene. Our guests:
- Bleu Cease, director of RoCo, lead organizer and curator for "Current Seen"
- W. Michelle Harris, artist
- Stephon Senegal, artist
- Elizabeth Cameron, curator
- Sean Capone, curator
