    On any given day, the Trump campaign is plastering ads all over Facebook, YouTube and the millions of sites served by Google, hitting the kind of incendiary themes — immigrant invaders, the corrupt media — that play best on platforms where algorithms favor outrage and political campaigns are free to disregard facts.

    Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg rejects calls for Trump's social media to be shut down in exclusive interview Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has responded to calls for social media companies to curtail President Trump's activities on platforms such as Twitter. "My belief is that in a democracy, I don’t think that we want private companies censoring politicians in the news," Zuckerberg told Dana Perino in an exclusive interview airing Friday on "The Daily Briefing." During the interview, Perino asked Zuckerberg about Sen. Kamala Harris' demand that Twitter shut down Trump's account, which the president uses regularly to share his views on a...

    Gett Clean, a manufacturer of cleaning products, protects its margins and improves marketing through Alibaba.com, Gett Clean co-founder Evan Gettinger said at B2B Next 2019 today. Alibaba.com may not always be the first marketplace suppliers in the United States consider for building sales, but one supplier finding success selling through Alibaba is Gett Clean, a manufacturer of cleaning products. As a start-up, Gett Clean realized that a marketplace had to be part of its business model if it was to successfully compete against larger suppliers, as it lacked the resources and sales staff to achieve a global reach. What drew...

    RUSH: Here’s another little news story that… You know, if you dig deep — if you dig deep — eventually the left, the Democrats, will betray their fears. They will always tell you what they’re afraid of. They will always tell you who they are afraid of. Thomas B. Edsall in the New York Times: “Trump Is Winning the Online War — The technical superiority and sophistication of the president’s digital campaign is a hidden advantage of incumbency.” Ohhhh, it’s a “hidden advantage of incumbency.” It doesn’t have anything to do with Trump’s people! “For all his negative poll numbers...

    Loomer's site ^ | October 16, 2019 | Peter M. D'Abrosca
    According to a Tuesday POLITICO report, there is a massive and coordinated effort on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), federal law enforcement agencies, and social media outlets like Twitter to monitor and remove “disinformation” from the internet during the 2020 election cycle. In principle, this effort is an authoritarian effort to control the free flow of information which will almost certainly be used against conservatives on behalf of the leftist political establishment. To wit, the aforementioned organizations, which include the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are working to tackle what they...

    Former Google senior software developer and whistleblower Zach Vorhies appeared on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour Friday to discuss Google’s relationship with Communist China and the company’s artificial intelligence project DeepMind, which has been called the “AI Manhattan Project.” LISTEN: Mansour asked Vorhies about Google’s business engagements in China. “Google has gotten in trouble in the past for doing business with the Communist government of China,” Mansour said. “And I wanted to ask you were those efforts ongoing when you were with the company? Can you give us any insight into that? Because it was quite troubling.”...

    Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren continued her campaign against Facebook on Sunday, one day after she posted false advertisements to Facebook on Saturday to see if she could prove to voters that the social media platform values profit over facts. "Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate. They’ve decided to let political figures lie to you -- even about Facebook itself -- while their executives and their investors get even richer off the ads containing these lies," Warren wrote in a series of Twitter posts Saturday criticizing Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign is targeting Facebook's policies for political advertisements with a new ad that purposefully makes the false claim that the company and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, have endorsed President Trump. Warren and other critics have blasted Facebook in recent days over its refusal to take down a Trump campaign ad that accuses Democratic candidate Joe Biden of corruption without evidence. Facebook has defended allowing the ad to stay on its platform. "Breaking news: Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook just endorsed Donald Trump for re-election," the mock Warren ad states. "You're probably shocked, and you might be thinking,...

Church leaders say they weren't told exactly what led Facebook to ban the Christian Liberty Press page, but they speculate it has to do with expressing their Christian views.

    When Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., sued Twitter in Virginia court in March for negligence over multiple cases of defamation and impersonation by the social media giant’s users, he was mocked and laughed at for thinking his case would accomplish anything. But following a Virginia judge’s ruling last week that Nunes’ suit could proceed to trial in the Old Dominion, it may be Nunes who gets the last laugh. Nunes, who was first elected to Congress 2002, rose to prominence following the 2016 election as the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). With Nunes leading the charge...

    Twitter has apologized for briefly allowing a hashtag that translates to 'Die Trump' to trend in Turkey. '#MahvolursunTrump' began trending on Twitter on Monday after US President Donald Trump threatened to 'destroy and obliterate' the Turkish economy if he deemed the nation's military action in Syria 'off limits'. 'This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we're sorry for this mistake,' a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to DailyMail.com. 'At times, we do prevent certain content from trending and we have now done so with this trend.' The Twitter trend came hours after the White House announced Sunday...

    The head of the FBI is speaking out against Facebook’s decision to add encryption to its Messenger program. While speaking to law enforcement officials in Washington Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said law enforcement agencies could lose the ability to find criminals online and bring them to justice. The new encryption would shield communication between users from surveillance and the content would also be inaccessible by the company, meaning agencies can’t get access even with a warrant. Director Wray continued by saying Facebook’s plan would create a lawless space for child predators without fear of consequences. “Facebook would transform from...

    Ask Internet entrepreneur and Silicon Valley venture capitalist Reid Hoffman how he decides which companies to invest in, and he’ll tell you he has a simple litmus test to determine whether to give the idea a closer look. “I want to invest in companies that play to one or more of the seven deadly sins,” Hoffman said. For those a bit rusty, those sins would be: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. Hoffman, best known as co-founder of LinkedIn, says the business-professional networking-platform most embodies the deadly sin of greed. “In the end, LinkedIn is helping someone earn...

    The Chinese regime announced a new rule which requires residents to pass a facial recognition test in order to apply for an internet connection via smartphone or computer. The rule will be implemented from Dec. 1, 2019. In addition, no cell phone or landline number can be transferred to another person privately. This is an upgraded restriction after the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) required all applicants to present a valid ID and personal information to register for a cell phone or a landline number since January 2015. MIIT published the new rule on its official website...

    President Donald Trump and his allies are outspending rivals on impeachment-related advertising on Facebook, demonstrating their dominance on the platform as they wrestle for control of a fast-evolving narrative that could threaten his presidency. The spending discrepancy appears to be as gaping as 4 to 1, based on recent data from Facebook's public ad archive, which reports all figures in ranges. Between Sept 20 and Tuesday morning (Oct 2), Trump allies funneled as much as US$3 million (S$4.1 million) into ads opposing impeachment or assailing House Democrats for beginning a formal inquiry, according to data analysed by Laura Edelson, a...
