In this episode of the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce break down the Supreme Court oral arguments in a pair of challenges to SB8, the Texas law that bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected at around six weeks of gestation. They also discuss a series of reports that revealed damaging information from Facebook’s internal documents, which were leaked by former Facebook employee-turned-whistleblower Frances Haugen. ​​The documents show, among other things, that Facebook ignored the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories related to the 2020 election and QAnon, that it refused to share with policymakers its trove of research on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, and that Instagram is having a harmful impact on teenagers.
