In response to questions about the COVID-19 pandemic and the harmful effects of online censorship, Gates noted that he and Dr. Fauci were both discussed. In November, Fauci was deposed due to a lawsuit brought by Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana, who are Republican attorneys general.
When asked about the spread of false stories about him, Gates noted that he often points out the instances where people make unsubstantiated claims. He was referring to the stories that have been published about him.
"During the interview, Gates noted that people often go to the digital platforms to look at the "craziness" of the stories that are published about him."
During an interview on CNBC on October 18, Gates was criticized after he praised the rising energy prices in Europe due to the invasion of Ukraine.
"According to Ferguson, digital polarization is a contributing factor to the slow progress that the country is making. He noted that it's time for the government to take a different approach to managing the information that people consume."
"When asked about the issue of misinformation, Gates noted that there are various laws and approaches in different countries. He also said that he doesn't have a magic solution to prevent the spread of false information."
