Obama Intelligence Officials Testify, Russian Meddling

The Senate Intelligence Committee is preparing to question top Obama administration intelligence officials behind closed doors on Wednesday on their explosive assessment that officially accused Russia of meddling in the 2016 presidential election to boost then-candidate Donald Trump.

The committee, led by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., invited former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan, former National Security Agenda Director Michael Rogers (who retired earlier this year) and former FBI Director James Comey.

Facebook Deleted 538 Million Fake Accounts in 2018

Facebook removed 700 million in 2017. Staggering numbers.

So much for reliance on artificial intelligence software programs or high praise for them in pinpointing fake accounts. Is it any wonder what Facebook does to accounts, links and news on the platform and what shows up on your timeline or in trending? Perhaps we are now to rely on the new 10,000 Facebook editors. Consider, during the first quarter of 2018, Facebook deleted 865.8 million posts, the majority of which were spam, according to the report. Facebook also removed 28.8 million posts showing everything from nudity that violated its community standards to graphic violence and terrorist propaganda, the report said.
