Should Government Regulate the Internet?

Hosted by

Should the Internet be left free to empower its tens of millions of users? What are the possibilities for abuse? Is government regulation needed or would that destroy a lot of what's good about the Internet in the first place? We look at this week's so-called "eG8" summit between heads of state and industry leaders. Also, Secretary of State Clinton warns Pakistan that relations are at a "turning point," and the restaurant that catered to all kinds of celebrities — and to all of New York, served its last meal last night. We talk with the writer Gay Talese.
