Smile more? Some see sexism in debate over Biden VP pick

By SARA BURNETT and ALEXANDRA JAFFE | Associated Press CHICAGO — She’s too ambitious. She’s not apologetic enough. She should smile more. The debate over Joe Biden’s running mate has recently ticked through a familiar list of stereotypes about women in politics as the Democratic presidential candidate and his allies stumble through a search they had hoped would stand out for its inclusion and diversity. Instead, the vice presidential vetting has resurfaced internal party divisions between the ol...

Obama is now on a head-on collision course with Trump to save the 2020 US election

Back in February 2008, congressman John Lewis had some bad news for Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign.It was true that just a few months earlier, the civil rights hero had backed her bid to become the nation’s first woman president. But now, painfully and after no small consideration, he was having to take that endorsement back.

The Pentagon has made more UFO revelations, but Canada's had a public UFO database for decades

Earlier this year, the Pentagon confirmed that Tom Delonge had actually leaked some legit UFO videos; and just last week, The New York Times buried even more UFO revelations on the 17th page of the print edition. It's definitely weird that the former lead singer of Blink-182 emerged from a paranoid painkiller addiction to become a legitimate UFOlogist, in communication with John Podesta and Hillary Clinton. It's even weirder that his colleagues in the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences in...

CEOs from Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook had to defend their companies against what lawmakers called 'a pattern of' monopolistic behavior. Here's how each was grilled during Wednesday's landmark hearing. (AMZN, GOOGL, AAPL, FB)

Wednesday's tech antitrust hearing was a grueling six-hour event in which House committee members grilled Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sundar Pichai about their companies' market power.  Cook, Apple's CEO, received what seemed like the fewest questions, but he was asked about the App Store and how Apple treats app developers.  Zuckerberg was probed on Facebook's acquisition strategy and whether it bought companies like Instagram to "neutralize" a competitor.  Pichai, who is CEO o...

A baseless US conspiracy theory found a foothold in Europe. New research shows how

A baseless claim about a child sex-trafficking ring, a Washington, DC pizzeria, and Hillary Clinton has been passed around among conspiracy theorists for more than three years. No evidence has emerged to support any part of the story. But last month, British pop star Robbie Williams used his voice to argue that the claims deserved more attention.

Jim Jordan explodes when asked to put on a mask, pivots to 'unmasking' of Michael Flynn

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has successfully twisted a public health concern into a conservative conspiracy theory -- but not the one of the dozens of COVID-19 conspiracies one might expect.During a Wednesday hearing with the country's four biggest technology companies, Jordan used his questioning time to claim Google tried to help Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Penn.) was up next, and started her questioning by saying she would pivot from "fringe conspi...

Russia has been publishing English-language articles to spread COVID-19 disinformation to Americans, US officials said. It could skew the 2020 elections as it did in 2016.

Russia is creating fake news articles about the COVID-19 pandemic and aiming them at Americans, US officials told The Associated Press (AP). They said that Russia's secretive GRU military  intelligence unit runs three websites that have produced 150 articles about the pandemic, many critical of the US response.  The websites —,, and — have also stirred up anti-US sentiment and attacked Democratic candidate Joe Biden, the AP said.  The disclosure adds to ...

Can Social Media Giants Win Their Fight Against The QAnon Hydra?

Other social media platforms are reportedly following their lead. Facebook employees told the New York Times that the platform plans to roll out a similar policy next month.

What is 'QAnon'? Understanding the far-right conspiracy movement embraced by Trump supporters that originated on 4chan.

Over the past several years, a set of conspiracy theories tied to a fictional character named "Q" have leapt from the anonymous 4chan online message boards to the slogans chanted and signs held by President Trump's supporters at campaign rallies. The various theories tied to "Q" and "QAnon" are voluminous, but the general idea is that elites, Democratic Party leaders, and the so-called "Deep State" are all conspiring on a variety of nefarious acts, from pedophilia to mind control.

New Texas poll hints at 'massive suburban defection' from Trump

Several polls have shown that former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is building a lead among suburban voters across the United States. While it may seem unlikely that will be the case in Texas, a new Quinnipiac University poll does provide some evidence that President Trump's suburban support is dwindling there.The poll, released Wednesday, still shows Trump leading his likely challenger among white voters with a college degree, 49 percent to 42.

Undecided voters are leaning toward Joe Biden, poll shows

Back in 2016, Reuters/Ipsos polling found that, in the months leading up to the general election, President Trump and his Democratic competitor Hillary Clinton garnered an equal amount of support among third party or undecided voters. Eventually, a majority of those voters backed Trump when they went to the booth. But a new Reuters/Ipsos poll suggests that he'll have a tough time repeating that against former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020.A majority of undecided or third party voters — 61...
