Dr. Joan Donovan, a well-known online disinformation expert, has accused Harvard University of ending her project and forcing her out to protect its ties with Facebook's parent company, Meta. In a legal filing, Donovan claims that the university violated her free speech rights and academic freedom to protect the interests of major donors connected to Meta/Facebook. These allegations raise concerns about the power of tech giants over supposedly independent research.
