Rock On! Debate: Public Forum Topic Analysis 2024 January (Section 230)

Hey, Public Forum Debaters! University of Wyoming Director of Debate Matt Liu is here to provide an overview analysis to help you absolutely obliterate the January 2024 Public Forum topic: The United States federal government should repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.


Matt Liu has a Master's degree in Communication Studies from Wake Forest University and over 20 years of experience in competitive debate. Before joining the University of Wyoming's staff, he coached multiple national championships in college debate at the University of Minnesota, Wake Forest University, and Liberty University. He has also coached multiple national championships at the high school level while working for The Harker School, New Trier (Tree-er), and Bronx Science. While in college, he won and was top speaker at the American Debate Association national championship, and was a quarter-finalist at the National Debate Tournament. ​

Thank you so much to Matt for sharing these helpful ideas with Public Forum Debaters out there preparing for the new January topic!
