Politico’s Lima to cover content moderation and social media
Politico reporter Cristiano Lima is taking on a new beat covering content moderation, online speech and new rules for social media.
This will include how social media platforms handle hateful content and misinformation, as well as algorithms and digital advertising.
Lima has been writing the Politico Pro Technology newsletter since 2018. Before that, he was on the breaking news team. He has also contributed to Morning Media and California Playbook and did a stint as a senior web producer.
Lima previously worked as a TV producer and reporter for Al Jazeera and Pennsylvania’s WFMZ, a radio host for local NPR-affiliate WDIY, a researcher for Media Matters and an intern for various other outlets.
He’s a two-time graduate of Lehigh University, earning both a Master’s in 2016 as a Community Fellow and a bachelor’s in 2013 in politics and policy.
