Hurd said the controversy over the original video, which Facebook has said it will not remove, illustrates the lack of readiness by responding to misinformation.
"We have old laws to decide how to handle disinformation. You have leaders who do not understand how this technology can be used in the future. This goes back to this whole conversation about disinformation, and how do we do that, he says. "And it's not just the government alone. It's not just the social media companies. There are also media, academia involved in trying to do this."
Hurd represents a swing district that from 2019 is the only Republican seat on the US / Mexico border. He won 2018 re-election with about 1,150 votes, making it the closest house race in Texas.
