Dipayan Ghosh was interviewed for Slate's "If Then" podcast.
On this week’s If Then, Slate’s April Glaser and Will Oremus talk about a clever effort to restore net neutrality in Montana and New York. They also discuss Facebook’s latest news feed tweaks—this time it’s trying to resuscitate the local news economy by putting more stories from local sources in your feed. Then the hosts are joined by Dipayan Ghosh—a former privacy and policy adviser to Facebook, the Obama administration, and the Hillary Clinton campaign—to talk about his recent report on how digital advertising technologies lend themselves to disinformation campaigns, and what the government can do about it.
