Hosts Rocky Dhir and Laurence Colletti are joined by New York Times Deputy General Counsel David McCraw at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the State Bar of Texas. Following his presentation on The Free Press Free-for-All: Rethinking the First Amendment in the Age of Twitter, David talks about how a campaign to delegitimize the press, an echo chamber obsessed news consumption culture, and the rise of social media present existential threats to the First Amendment that lead to some tough but inevitable questions regarding free speech.

David McCraw is the deputy general counsel of the New York Times Company.
