Facebook says it's battling fake news, but defends refusal to ban InfoWars

It took a while for Facebook to own up to the platform’s role in the 2016 election and that willingness to connect with reality is definitely appreciated. Unfortunately, we still have a ways to go for the company to really act like they have a full grasp on its “fake news” problem. According to recent reporting in Vanity Fair, Facebook held a small meeting with a few reporters about its “work to prevent the spread of false news.” Unfortunately, the amount of work they seem to be doing appeared hollow very quickly thanks to a question by CNN reporter Oliver Darcy. Darcy asked how Facebook could allow Infowars, which has a Facebook page with more than 900,000 followers, to continue to operate on its platform. In response, Hegeman told Darcy that Facebook doesn’t “take down false news . . . I guess just for being false that doesn’t violate the community standards,” he went on, adding that Infowars has “not violated something that would result in them being taken down.” While Infowars’ conspiracy theories “can be really problematic” and “it bugs me too,” said Su, the organization’s page represents a gray area: Facebook is focused on taking down content that “can be proven beyond a doubt to be demonstrably false,” a criterion that, to Facebook’s mind, rules out Infowars, whose posts claim that both the Sandy Hook shooting and 9/11 were hoaxes, and, more recently, that Democrats were going to start a civil war on the Fourth of July. “ So Facebook wants to battle fake news without ever banning it? Does this mean Facebook is pushing to let itself become the arbiter of what is “proven beyond a doubt” instead of banning harmful agents with a proven pattern of lying from its platform? Sounds scary. InfoWars isn’t the only page that continues to exist on the platform. Other pages that push Alex Jones’s conspiracy theories have been allowed to thrive as well. Nelba Màrquez-Greene, whose daughter Ana was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012, had more to add to the story of Facebook’s fake news problem.

Former CIA Director calls Trump's comments at Putin press conference 'nothing short of treasonous'

The joint press conference with Donald Trump and Vladmir Putin after their one-on-one meeting, a meeting in which Donald Trump insisted there be no note-takers to record their conversation, has been nothing short of a disaster for America and democracy. Before the pair even got started, a reporter was forcibly hauled out by security. Trump and Putin eventually took their respective podiums to begin taking questions and Donald Trump’s responses were shocking, chilling, unpatriotic and downright dangerous. Former CIA Director John Brennan called the performance “nothing short of treasonous.” Jump below to see why. xDonald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) July 16, 2018 Harsh words from John Brennan, but here’s why: Donald Trump took Putin’s side and bashed everyone from U.S. Intelligence services to Hillary Clinton, placing blame on everyone but Russia, despite unequivocal evidence Russia has launched an attack on America. Watch a reporter ask Donald Trump very directly to use this public opportunity to rebuke Russia’s actions during the 2016 campaign.  xAsked if he believes US intel agencies or Putin about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, Trump immediately starts pushing debunked DNC & Hillary conspiracy theories.«I don't see any reason why it would be» Russia, Trump says, affirming he believes Putin's denials. pic.twitter.com/uciAoRxbxA— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 16, 2018

Open thread for night owls: Trump in Helsinki makes the case against himself

David Corn at Mother Jones writes—In Helsinki, Trump Shows He Is Indeed Guilty of Collusion: I’ve been making this case for over a year, noting that “Trump actively and enthusiastically aided and abetted” Putin’s plot against the United States by supporting Moscow’s denial that it mounted information warfare that undermined the election and helped Trump. Put aside the notion of whether Trump or anyone in his crew schemed with Russians on how to pull this off. Once the attack became public, Trump and his lieutenants continuously maintained it was nothing but a hoax. [And then came Helsinki] Here was Trump drawing an equivalence between his top intelligence advisers and Putin, the former KGB officer. It was a stunning moment. What more could Putin want? The president of the nation, which, according to its own intelligence and law enforcement agencies, was attacked by Russia, was giving Putin’s denial as much credence as Mueller’s indictments and the findings of various spy agencies, as well as the Republican-led intelligence committees of the House and Senate (which each confirmed the intelligence community’s assessment). Trump was toiling (and trolling) hand-in-hand with Putin to advance Moscow’s deceit. And here’s a key question: was this performance jointly planned in advance? Both men said they did discuss the matter during their private tete-a-tete. It seems likely—in fact, highly probable—they talked about what they would say on this subject during the post-meeting press conference. (The public cannot be sure of this, because no one else, besides interpreters, attended the session, and no transcript has been released.) Yet the events of the past two years already indict Trump: he has repeatedly aided Putin’s attempt to escape responsibility for the attack. And today, the two men issued respective messages—which might have been coordinated—that each supported and advanced Russian disinformation. There you have it. Collusion. Trump working with Putin, in the open, to make the Russian attack on the United States disappear. Trump himself has proven the case.  Indivisible’s list of Resistance Events & Groups TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION “Exactly how lousy with Russian money are Republican and conservative American politicians and political organizations is still an open question. (The same question concerning the Republican president* is as closed as a tomb.) It would explain, to an extent, the supine reaction by the Republican majorities in Congress to the depredations of this administration*. There is no question that the Russian government has an incredibly well-honed instinct for finding American suckers. Vladimir Putin may be the heir to the Tsars and the commissars, but it appears that, in international politics at least, he’s the heir to Bernie Madoff as well.”               ~~Charles P. Pierce, Esquire, July 16, 2018 TWEET OF THE DAY xIt's one thing not to believe U.S. intelligence. It's quite another to accept a self-interested denial from Putin at face value.— Spencer Ackerman (@attackerman) July 16, 2018 BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2004—Coalition of the Shrinking: Bush started with 32 nations in his 'coalition"—the vast majority which failed to provide anything more than moral support. (Only the UK and Australia provided forces for the invasion.) But of those 32, four have already left. Spain, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. Four more are in the process of leaving—Philippines, Thailand, Norway and New Zealand. Several other nations have pledged to increase their troop levels—South Korea, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Through it all, the US is struggling to keep the whole effort from falling apart.   Australia's pledge to increase its commitment will bring its troop strength to 880 -- fewer than half the 2,000 troops it had during the war. And only about 250 are in Iraq, with the rest in air and naval support positions nearby, Australian envoys say. For Australia and some other countries, increases are mainly meant to enhance security for their own troops, embassies and personnel. On today’s Kagro in the Morning show: We're back on LIVE and sharing Iceland reminiscences with Greg Dworkin. Plus the news we missed, like Trump's various disasters abroad, Mueller's latest indictments, and yet more FIFA corruption. All just in time for Trump’s treason in Helsinki.  x Embedded Content RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) LINK TO DAILY KOS STORE
