Should Tech Companies Bow To Foreign Censorship Rules?

Netflix is taking heat for complying with Saudi Arabia’s request to remove from the platform in that country an episode of ‘The Patriot Act.’ In it, comedian Hasan Minhaj focuses on the Saudi royal family and its potential role in the death of columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

But Netflix isn’t the only media or tech company complying with foreign censorship requests these days.

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney was joined by former CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian, former NECN anchor Mike Nikitas, Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University and Callie Crossley of WGBH News.
