The House Energy & Commerce Committee Consumer Protection Subcommittee will hold a hearing Jan. 8 on "deception online," "Americans at Risk: Manipulation and Deception in the Digital Age."
Among the topics for discussion will be deepfakes and disinformation campaigns.
“As the internet has matured from a blogging platform to the engine that powers our economy, bad actors who seek to manipulate consumers have become more sophisticated," said House E&C chairman Frank Pallone (D-N.J.).
No witnesses have been announced, but they will be asked to provide input on how to combat "harmful" deception and manipulation.
