WOW!Facebook investor, former advisor venture capitalist Roger McNamee [View all]

told a committee hearing in Ottawa today that social media platforms should be shut down until they can be reformed.

"If your goals are to protect democracy and personal liberty, you have to be bold. You have to force a radical transformation of the business model of internet platforms," venture capitalist Roger McNamee told the House of Commons privacy and ethics committee Tuesday morning.



WOW WOW AND MORE WOW!



"At the end of the day, though, the most effective path to reform would be to shut down the platforms at least temporarily. . Any country can go first. The platforms have left you no choice. The time has come to call their bluff."
