Hands on with Telepath, the social network taking aim at abuse, fake news and, to some extent, ‘free speech’

There’s no doubt that modern social networks have let us down. Filled with hate speech and abuse, moderation and anti-abuse tools were an afterthought they’re now trying to cram in. Meanwhile, personalization engines deliver us only what will keep us engaged, even if it’s not the truth. Today, a number of new social networks are trying to flip the old model on its head — whether that’s attempting to use audio for more personal connections, like Clubhouse, eliminate clout chasing, like Twelv, or,...

Players 2020: Scott Piercy speaks for the first time since being dropped by sponsors for offensive Instagram post

On Wednesday, Scott Piercy played a practice round at TPC Sawgrass in an outfit that is unusual for any player on the PGA Tour much less one who has won four times and earned more than $20 million in career money: He was logo-less. A day later, in the opening round of the Players Championship, he wore another nondescript getup that he bought from a store devoid of the usual variety of company names that typically adorn hats, shirts and sleeves to Nascar-like levels. This is the new reality for t...

Democrats Left Joe Biden for Dead. Then They Decided He Was Their Savior

It’s a common refrain in electoral politics that Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line. But that axiom appears to have been dispensed with on Tuesday night, when several states voted for the candidate they and their party leaders best felt could do the one task they’re desperate for come November: beat Donald Trump. Former Vice President Joe Biden racked up a series of dramatic wins on Super Tuesday, starting with Virginia and sweeping through several other states, including Alabam...

Experts Say There’s ‘No Evidence’ for Bernie’s Russian Bot Claim

Bernie Sanders on Wednesday raised the possibility that social media accounts harassing his critics may, in fact, be Russian bots operating in disguise. But top security officials say they've seen no such activity. The platforms themselves hinted the same. And experts in the field are now saying that the senator's inference may cause harm by eroding trust for when such behavior does, in fact, occur.When pressed about his supporters’ attacks on members of the Nevada Culinary Workers Union...

Kamala’s Fake Lover: Jacob Wohl Told Me It Was for a Spike TV Show

Inept conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman held another bizarre press conference in Burkman’s driveway on Wednesday, this time to smear Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) with obviously fake allegations of an extramarital affair. And like past efforts to manufacture sexual claims against Trump foes—from Robert Mueller, to Pete Buttigieg, to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)—the Harris charade fell apart quickly. The pair’s bogus accuser—26-year-old Sean Newaldass—told The Daily Beast on Friday ...
