In other news, a federal judge has ruled that the Trump regime cannot withhold grant money from sanctuary cities, at least for now. U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber wrote that the city of Chicago was likely to succeed in their lawsuit in his motion granting an injunction.

Meanwhile, an investigation by Pro Publica found that Facebook's advertising network allows buyers to market directly to users with anti-Semitic terms, among other things.

Until this week, when we asked Facebook about it, the world’s largest social network enabled advertisers to direct their pitches to the news feeds of almost 2,300 people who expressed interest in the topics of “Jew hater,” “How to burn jews,” or, “History of ‘why jews ruin the world.’”

After reading this report, I immediately wondered if Russian operatives may have used this feature to influence specific voters. They almost certainly did, right? We know they purchased ads and they must have used some form of criteria for them.

Finally, the Naval Postgraduate School has ordered former wingnut sheriff David Clarke to alter his master's thesis because significant parts of it were directly lifted from sources without properly citing them.

    Just goes to prove my theory: Mark Zuckerberg is the symbol of all that is evil.

    Facebook cannot possibly claim to have been ignorant about the potential for abuse like this built into their system.
    They themselves did studies to determine how Facebook practices could shape and alter public perception. I remember that that leaked out. I think the now defunct ( see driven out of business by a Peter Thiel ) Gawker had a scoop that leaked out from Facebook about these internal studies. So, they had to know, that the system could be abused as it was during this last election. Chez Pazienza was right about the ultimate value of Gawker as a publication focused on the power that now exists in Silicon Valley and how much that power has evaded any kind of public scrutiny.

    I understand that representatives of Facebook, Google, and Twitter closely collaborated with the Trump digital campaign thru Giles-Parscale, the RNS, and Cambridge Analytica. The campaign funneled at least $85M to Facebook. Who knows how much was directed by Russia and other foreign sources to these entities? Facebook and Twitter have blood on their hands and more than a little quisling payola in their pockets.
