4:42 am
yesterday. uber reports the number of rapes is down from 247 in 2019 and that the majority of the rape victims were riders. the decrease came when americans faced pandemic lockdowns and travel restrictions. according to uber's data, u.s. rides fell from more than 1 billion in 2019 to 650 million in 2020. the company highlighted its safety measures in its report. more than 500,000 potential drivers failed the company's background checks in 2019 and in 2020 uber has also continued to add enhanced features to the emergency help button on its app using gps technology tens of thousands of national guard members set to face possible penalties now for not getting the covid vaccine. the deadline for guard soldiers expired yesterday at midnight. military officials say more than 43,000 national guard members haven't provided proof of vaccination. that's about 10% of the total force. some have refused vaccination

tried to press social media to reporting hate speech. let's bring in tiffany lee now, assistant professor of law at the university of new hampshire school of law. tiffany, thanks. it seems like a big effort to police speech on social media and people have struck down laws on both sides. do you see these laws as being able to get through the courts at this point? >> i really don't think so what we see here are really well-intentioned efforts, bipartisan efforts, i might say, but i don't think any of them are going to pass muster for the same issue that comes up again and again. a lot of these laws trying to restrict social meaddia compani are going to run straight into the first amendment and that's a huge problem, right? we definitely want to protect speech and these laws run counter to it. >> wait a success, decond, do ye
4:46 am
the right to free speech >> it's what the first amendment protects right. so what we're seeing state governments trying to police what private companies can say or can host on their own platforms so that's the first amendment issue that we're seeing. >> one of the things we see here is social media companies pushed back reporting better ways of reporting hate speech. there's so much speech on their sites to accurately police does that argument and the sheer volume of this thing hold any weight with the courts >> it can. if we think about a big tech platform like facebook, twitter or google, the sheer scale and the amount of content on their platforms is incredibly hard to police so if you ask any company to realize if there's never hate speech on the platform that's nearly impossible. >> what could it mean for me, if you'rest onning on my media
4:47 am
account and middle something untoward what happens to me? >> these laws probably won't affect you directly. they're not going to curtail the power of the use tore speak. the problem is that any tech company that has to face uphill battle to comply with 50 different state laws on what speech is allowed or isn't allowed, those companies will start censoring content and that's when it will impact the user program sometimes you try to post something there might be a little bit politically on the line and make it gets taken down before it even gets poefrted that might be the consequence of one of these laws. >> what about internationally? you've got international rules, federal rules and state rules all in conflict with each other and the companies have to sort through all of that. it's next to impossible. it's incredibly hard for any company. we're not thinking just about facebook or google and they often have small start-ups and the non-profits. so facebook and geeoogle can sot out 50 different state laws, but what about wikipedia >> tiffany, thanks so much for
