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.
