Mark Zuckerberg personally made the decision that Facebook will keep running political ads, even though the ads were weaponized in 2016 (FB)

As the US gears up for its next presidential election in 2020, citizens can expect to keep seeing political ads on Facebook.  Internally the company is dealing with the fallout from reports that its platforms were used to manipulate voters in elections around the world. The latest big change is that Facebook will no longer pay commissions to sales people for selling political ads.

DUH: HUD Housing Should Put Americans First

DUH: HUD Housing Should Put Americans First U.S.A. –-( We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy. Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as “despicable” and “damaging.” Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the pr...

AACC Pushing Healthcare Coverage Without Counseling

The American Association of Christian Counselors is promoted as a trade association for Christian counselors. However, in fact it is the for profit business operation of Tim Clinton. The AACC doesn’t elect officers or  involve members meaningfully in the management of the organization. Because business is the main focus, one must carefully consider what AACC offers to members.  Currently, AACC is pushing a healthcare program which seems to run counter to member interests. Christian Healthcare Mi...

Ben Carson Blames Democrats’ ‘Alinsky’ Tactics for His ‘Oreo’ Moment

At several points, he asked Democratic congresswo...

Facebook still a great place to amplify pre-election junk news, EU study finds

A study carried out by academics at Oxford University to investigate how junk news is being shared on social media in Europe ahead of regional elections this month has found individual stories shared on Facebook’s platform can still hugely outperform the most important and professionally produced news stories, drawing as much as 4x the volume of Facebook shares, likes, and comments. The study, conducted for the Oxford Internet Institute’s (OII) Computational Propaganda Project, is intended to...

Latest Sign of Beto O’Rourke’s Flameout: Opposition Research Requests Have ‘Died Off’

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyIn the days leading up to Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign, a top Republican opposition research firm was brimming with requests from political reporters angling for dirt.

This Week: Putin Praises Mueller, Barr Goes Full Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller earned an unlikely defender this week: Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Putin referred to Mueller’s work as “exotic” and “very objective” — a far-cry from how President Trump himself characterized the probe this week. The President unilaterally concluded Friday that the investigation began as an attempt to spy on his campaign. Those behind the supposed spying deserved “long jail sentences,” he added....

After Ukraine-Biden Scandal Fizzles, Trump Demands Probe Into China Ties

The Ukraine-Biden scandal ran out of steam this week. So what’s the next big thing for Trump and the right-wing media machine? The answer seems to be a China-Biden scandal. In a preview of a Sunday interview with Fox News’ Steve Hilton, Trump demanded an investigation into the former Vice President’s apparent ties to China. Allegations that Hunter Biden took advantage of his father’s position to sign a lucrative business deal with the Bank of China apparently stem from Peter Schweizer’s 2018 ...

Barr: Probe Into Russia Investigation’s Origins Has Yielded ‘Inadequate’ Explanations

Weeks into an investigation of the origins of the FBI's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Attorney General William Barr said Friday that the probe has provided more questions than answers due to the “inadequate” and in some cases inconsistent answers he's been given from the officials involved.Asked during an interview with Fox News whether he knew exactly when the FBI began its investigation into the Trump campaign, Barr said he had not yet identified a reliable ti...

Holding Barr in Contempt Is a Case of Dirty Politics

Ever since Donald Trump came down that Trump Tower escalator to announce his candidacy for president, we’ve heard a great deal about the abuse of norms -- constitutional norms, democratic norms, norms of decency, all kinds of norms. For Trump supporters, the president’s frequent violations of norms, while occasionally regrettable, were for the most part welcome because they proved he was willing to fight to win. This was necessary, the theory went, because the Left didn’t care about norms anymor...

Trump Snubs American Muslims At White House Ramadan Celebration

For the second year in a row, the Trump administration largely excluded American Muslims from a White House celebration of Islam’s holiest month. “Once again, the White House refuses to acknowledge the existence and contributions of American Muslims at the annual White House Iftar,” the Muslim Public Affairs Council lamented in a blog post Monday. Iftar is the nightly break-fast meal held after sunset during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The modern White House Iftar dinner tradition began ...

5 Points On Giuliani’s Bizarre Attempts To Dig Up Dirt For Trump In Ukraine

Facing intensive public scrutiny, Rudy Giuliani this weekend cancelled a planned mission to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Trump’s political opponents and try to coax Kiev prosecutors into doing the same. But the web of outrageous allegations and conspiracy theories that undergird Giuliani’s aborted trip raise a question: what exactly is President Trump’s personal lawyer up to? By Giuliani’s own admission, he is brazenly attempting to enlist the Ukrainian government in efforts to further Trump’s p...

A protectionist message was central to his run for the White House.

His bluster led to a...

Opinion: New White House press rules are a slippery slope to removing press freedoms

For the last couple of years of President Clinton's second term, there was a particularly colorful member of the White House press corps. He attended the briefings almost every day and badgered me with long, convoluted questions, often circling back to Catholic Church issues. At times it was amusing, other days it was disruptive.
