  • Every comment on every website in China must now be vetted before it is published

    Carefully vetting every single piece of user-generated content (UGC) before it’s allowed to be posted to a website is a daunting task. But China is clearly up for the challenge. The country’s so-called Cyberspace Administration has released a new policy that requires all comments on websites to be approved before they’re published. The new rules were outlined in a document published last week entitled: ‘Provisions on the Administration of Internet Thread Commenting Services’. It will mean any company or individual that runs a website where people can post comments will need to hire ‘a review and editing team suitable for...

    Denise Richards is starting a new business venture. Richards, 51, took to Instagram on Thursday to share that she’s launched her own OnlyFans account. "Ready…here we go," she wrote alongside a video of her walking into the ocean in a white dress. "Link in bio," she added with the lip emoji. The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum teased the launch last week after defending her daughter, Sam "Sami" Sheen, for being on the platform. Denise Richards, who starred in "Wild Things" and on Playboy, has launched her own OnlyFans account. Denise Richards, who starred in "Wild Things" and on...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will inaugurate a task force on Thursday to curb online harassment, fulfilling one of the Biden campaign's promises in the wake of a mass shooting that highlights a link between online abuse and violence. The task force will be co-chaired by the White House Gender Policy Council and National Security Council, according to senior administration officials who previewed the announcement in a call on Wednesday evening. "It's imperative that we commit to better understanding and addressing the nexus between online misogyny and radicalization to violence," a senior administration official said. One in three...

    The legendary former MMA fighter was fired from Disney’s “Mandalorian,” a spinoff of the Star Wars franchise, after an Instagram story comparing the heated political climate to Nazi Germany last year. Carano’s career, however, was not over. She signed on to a starring role in the film “Terror on the Prairie,” which was developed by The Daily Wire. The conservative news outlet is seeking to build a movie business for people who, like Carano, are alienated from Hollywood’s output. “I don’t feel comfortable with mandates,” Carano said in an interview with Libby Emmons in the Post Millenial, adding that vaccine...

    “We need the tech companies to really jump in” One of Joe Biden’s senior advisors told a reporter this week that social media companies should be cracking down on and censoring anyone who speeds information critical of the administration’s so called ‘green energy transition’. National climate advisor Gina McCarthy made the comments in an interview with a reporter for Axios, stating “Now it’s not so much denying the problem. What the [fossil fuel] industry is now doing is seeding doubt about the costs associated with [green energy] and whether they work or not.” She continued, “We need the tech companies...

I tried to forward it and got the "not delivered" notice. Traveled to another location and tried again. Same thing. Cut and pasted it and it has since been shared multiple times with no issues.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The social media posts are of a distinct type. They hint darkly that the CIA or the FBI are behind mass shootings. They traffic in racist, sexist and homophobic tropes. They revel in the prospect of a “white boy summer.” White nationalists and supremacists, on accounts often run by young men, are building thriving, macho communities across social media platforms like Instagram, Telegram and TikTok, evading detection with coded hashtags and innuendo. Their snarky memes and trendy videos are riling up thousands of followers on divisive issues including abortion, guns, immigration and LGBTQ rights. ... They signal...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has launched an investigation against "Twitter for potentially deceiving Texas consumers" as well as Texas businesses, over fake bot accounts on the platform. This comes after Elon Musk's attorney filed a letter saying that the $44 billion acquirement deal could be on the rocks if Twitter doesn't reveal the number of fake accounts on the platform. Paxton released the information about the investigation that Twitter is in violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, saying "Twitter has received intense scrutiny in recent weeks over claiming in its financial regulatory filings that fewer than 5%...

    I realize that it’s risky to post this, but in the interest of the very real warfare in which every conservative should be engaged, I want to propose a strategy to at least stymie the ubiquitous presence of “trans” nuts on various media. What gave me this idea is that I myself was ousted from a fake FaceBook account used to troll leftists when someone reported me as fake. FaceBook tries to verify all reports of false identities on accounts even going so far as to request copies of ID (the irony abounds.) Well, we should double down on this...

    One of the very first things that social media outlets do following a murder or bombing or mass shooting is to delete the account of the alleged perpetrator. That is a mistake. Salvador Ramos threatened teens on the teen app Yubo. He telegraphed his intentions: Mass murderer Salvador Ramos boasted of buying a gun and said some people “deserved to be raped” on the teen app Yubo, where users nicknamed him “school shooter”– even before Tuesday’s massacre in Uvalde, Texas. It was unclear how long before Ramos slaughtered 21 people, including 19 kids inside Robb Elementary School that he was...

    Law enforcement officers are investigating whether a retired federal agent had about 30 minutes advance notice of a white supremacist's plans to murder Black people at a Buffalo supermarket, two law enforcement officials told The Buffalo News. Authorities believe the former agent – believed to be from Texas – was one of at least six individuals who regularly communicated with accused gunman Payton Gendron in an online chat room where racist hatred was discussed, the two officials said. The two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation stated these individuals were invited by Gendron to read about his...

    In yet another tragic mass shooting, Salvador Ramos, 18, slaughtered 19 innocent children and two much-loved teachers at Robb Elementary school, in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday before being killed in a shoot out with a Border Patrol officer and local law enforcement. It is the second deadliest shooting in US history after the infamous Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 - which saw 26 people killed - and has once again left people asking how someone could commit such a heinous crime. As the country tries to make sense of the tragedy, stories about Ramos are beginning to emerge from those...

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports” called for federal regulations to monitor social media so people can’t be “hatefully radicalized to harm our democracy.” When asked about the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riot, Gillibrand said, “What we have seen is the radicalization and the growing extremism, anti-Semitism, white supremacists, neo-Nazis. This group, the insurrectionists on January 6, tried to take down the United States Capitol and tries to subvert our electoral counts process. So it is an outrage this happened in America. And it is the responsibility of this House committee and...

    U.S.—A recent study has audited Joe Biden's Twitter followers to determine whether or not they are in fact real followers. The results have left the world stunned as everyone discovered half of his followers are somehow real people. "11 million of Biden's followers are real? That seems high," said Mike Vanders, a social media analyst. "The American people can't even follow what he has to say, much less follow him on Twitter." According to sources, most experts had estimated that maybe a dozen or so of the President's followers were real and that the remaining 22 million were all fake...

    At least half of President Biden’s 22.2 million Twitter followers are bogus, a new audit revealed. The audit, which was done for the social media giant by software firm SparkToro, found that 49.3% of the president’s followers are “fake followers,” according to Newsweek. SparkToro has defined “fake followers” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter).” Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is currently attempting to buy Twitter, has expressed concern over the growing number of fake accounts and proposed a potential...

    Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that social media company chief executives should be held accountable if hate speech is not monitored and removed on their platforms. Discussing the investigation into the mass shooting in a Buffalo grocery store, Hochul said, “I want to know what people knew and when they knew it and calling upon law enforcement as well as our social media platforms. The CEOs of those companies need to be held accountable and assure all of us that they’re taking every step humanly possible to be able to monitor this information. How these...

Wade with calls to accost their conservative classmates through "unrelenting daily confrontation" and toss the Constitution by the wayside.Members of the law school’s conservative Federalist Society, first year law student Shyamala Ramakrishna said in an Instagram post, are "conspirators in the Christo-fascist political takeover we all seem to be posting frantically about." Why, she asked, are they still "coming to our parties" and "laughing in the library" without "unrelenting daily confrontation?"Instagram post by law...
