Can Facebook meaningfully have a Supreme Court?

The title of a new feature in The New Yorker, written by law professor Kate Klonick, implies that the answer is yes. The story is more complicated.

And we just were talking that Trump ceased to be a threat when he lost his pulpit. Facebook manages to consistently be a influence for the worst #-o
