Hawaii is the first US state to have installed NewsGuard on its public library computers...NewsGuard also has a number of "advisors" which might raise eyebrows.

Connecticut lawmaker seeks constitutional convention on guns

In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday against the FBI and Justice Department, Strzok's counsel argued that his firing was politically motivated and in violation of two constitutional amendments. In particular, they argued that he was fired for using his protected political speech under the First Amendment and that the FBI also "deprived" him of his due process under the Fifth Amendment by denying him the right to appeal the decision.

Facebook Denies Shadow Banning, Receives Patent for Shadow Banning

Facebook Denies Shadow Banning, Receives Patent for Shadow Banning | 01 Aug 2019 | Facebook has continually denied that it participates in the practice of shadow banning -- a method of blocking a users' posts or comments from everyone except the user who made the post or comment. But a newly granted patent shows that Facebook not only does practice shadow banning, but wants to protect -- by patent -- the method it uses for doing so. Despite the fact that Facebook executives denied the practice in congressional testimony in April, the company was awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) earlier this month for an automated system that would "receive a list of proscribed content and block comments containing the proscribed content by reducing the distribution of those comments to other viewing users" while continuing to "display the blocked content to the commenting user such that the commenting user is not made aware that his or her comment was blocked." A better definition of shadow banning would be hard to write.
