I had a great time talking all things alt-right with Rep. Jim Himes last week. Thank you to the Democratic Women of Wesport for inviting me to speak.
Westport Now covered the discussion:
As to what can be done to combat the alt-right, Ryan said there are more opportunities in consumers organizing.
“Consumers have a lot more power on these platforms,” she said.
As someone who placed political ads on social media, Ryan said Facebook alone cannot win an election.
As to fake news, she said: “Much of fake news is weaponized.”
Below are a couple of tweets from the event.
