On Social Media's Responsibility
Social media, including platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, is like a giant telephone, Van Susteren said. Often these platforms are used by people to spread opinions or content masquerading as news. While the problem originates with users, these platforms aren't taking enough responsibility for the content being disseminated, she said.
"Social media is a wonderful way to reach around the world … But I don’t think anyone is expecting perfection, but the American people are growing very dissatisfied," she said. "These companies are aggregators of news, and they better figure out a way to help us disseminate material or they could end up being regulated by congress -- that’s what I predict."
