Blinken talked about efforts the United States is making to support free speech, free press, and free people, by protecting journalists, teaching citizens how to spot misinformation, and regulating the use of commercial spyware.

We'll also hear about how that spyware works, from Cybersecurity expert, Dr. John Nicholas, who is the Director of the Center for Information and Communication Sciences, at Ball State University.
