The House Sub-Committee on Energy and Commerce is holding what will likely be a contentious hearing that is called “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.” The hearing comes at a time when the nation is bitterly divided, largely by media consumption habits, and allegations of disinformation are flying on almost a daily basis.

Guests invited to testify include Soledad O’Brien, Anchor of syndicated program Matter of Fact; Emily Bell, Director of The Tow Center for Digital Media at Columbia University; Kristin Danielle Urquiza, Co-Founder of Marked by COVID; and Jonathan Turley, Fox News contributor and Professor at The George Washington University Law School.
