Social platforms flex their power, lock down Trump accounts

By DAVID KLEPPER and MATT O’BRIEN After years of treating President Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric with a light touch, Facebook and Instagram are silencing his social media accounts for the rest of his presidency. The move, which many called justified following Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, is also a reminder of the enormous power that social-media platforms can exercise when they choose. Facebook and Instagram said Thursday they will bar Trump from posting at least until t...

Rising calls to ban TikTok in the US are great news for homegrown tech giants like Facebook that would prefer less competition and regulatory scrutiny (FB, GOOG, AMZN)

The US government is considering banning TikTok as nationalist "security" concerns about the Chinese app grow. That's great news for American tech companies like Facebook. In recent years, there has been increased political and regulatory scrutiny of the American tech giants. But the companies are able to leverage concerns about foreign tech's influence to ward off unwanted regulation. In 2019, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg argued that "the future of the global internet" is at stake. On Friday...

Whatever happened to Nick Sauer, the GOP lawmaker caught catfishing with his ex-girlfriend’s nudes?

Ilhan Omar’s Challenger Is Literally on the Run From the Law

Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in November, has been wanted for months on an arrest warrant for felony shoplifting. Even while facing arrest, though, she’s managed to achieve a respectable fundrais...

This Week in Photography: The early 70’s

  Part 1: The Intro It’s tempting to glorify the past. (Mighty tempting.) I wrote recently, in my eulogy to Robert Frank, that MAGA is really one more expression of the desire to return to the 1950’s. It’s easy to mock that desire, (and I did,) because it so easily connects to a whiter, more racist and sexist America. If we were to try to understand it on less nefarious terms, we might agree people associate the 50’s with American dominance, and a more naive, safer, more small-town version of ou...

The Question Is: Can The UN Survive The Trump Era?

The United Nations will swear in António Guterres as its ninth secretary-general on Dec. 12, when the organization will be only weeks away from the inauguration of Donald Trump and the potentially most threatening, hostile political opposition to the UN ever assembled in Washington, D.C. The UN will have to be prepared to respond and defend its record. Most likely, it will also have to fend off a wave of "fake news" and bogus sites designed to weaken public support in the United States and aroun...
