    Getty QB Nick Foles #9 of the Chicago Bears Bart Scott was kidding but behind every good joke, there is a hint of truth. The Eagles should trade for Nick Foles. The former Jets linebacker made the comments earlier this week on ESPN’s Get Up! show, way before Philly’s embarrassing 23-23 tie on Sunday. Scott threw out the improbable scenario while discussing Carson Wentz’s problems and how to jump-start the Eagles’ anemic offense. His solution was for a “Philly Special” reunion. Scott said: “If the Eagles lose this game, they are going to trade for Nick Foles and put the band back together!” His colleague Mike Greenberg interpreted it to mean they should trade Jalen Hurts for Foles,...
    The founder of a bogus Black Lives Matter was nabbed in Ohio after he used $200,000 given to the organization for a new home, suits and guns, federal authorities said. Sir Maejor Page, 32, previously known as Tyree Conyers-Page, was arrested Friday following a raid at a Toledo, Ohio, home, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    A North California county on Friday fired back after a conservative commentator posted pictures online claiming the county had dumped “1000+” mail-in ballots for the 2020 election. In a post on its official Facebook page, the county said the envelopes pictured actually were from the 2018 election and not from 2020. Officials said those 2018 ballots were empty and disposed of legally. The photos posted early Friday by BlazeTV host Elijah Root showed hundreds of blue election envelopes lying in a heap at a recycling bin. “SHOCKING: 1,000+ mail-in-ballots found in a dumpster in California,” Riot wrote. “They were allegedly discovered in the Republic Services of Sonoma County central landfill.” Sonoma County officials said the allegation is...

    By TOM MURPHY, AP Health Writer In the spring, Rick Rose drew the wrath of strangers after he practically shouted on Facebook that he wasn’t buying a face mask. Two months later, he contracted COVID-19 — and, he posted, he was struggling to breathe. Days later, on July 4, he was dead. That post, among the Ohio man's final public words on Facebook, attracted attention in the form of more than 3,100 “haha” laughing face emoji and a torrent of criticism from strangers. “If they would have known him, they would have loved him like everybody else did,” says Tina Heschel, mother of the 37-year-old Rose. She says she’s “tired of all the hate.” “I just want him to rest,”...

    The day after Facebook announced it will launch its Oversight Board in October to determine what's allowed on the site, critics launched their own alternative. The Citizens, a UK nonprofit, unveiled the 'Real Facebook Oversight Board' on Friday to address the social media giant's policies and practices ahead of the US presidential election. The group warned that Facebook was already being used to suppress minority votes. 'Its tools are being used to spread lies and to enable private militias to organize voting station protests,' the group said in a statement on its website. Decisions by Citizens' panel of experts are not binding on Facebook, but the group hopes putting the platform under public scrutiny will have an impact.  Scroll down...

    Pia Mia put her ample cleavage center stage in a sultry velvet outfit in her latest Instagram video as she complimented her glam squad. The influencer looked stunning as she stood in a room decked out for a party while her beauty team worked on her. The model wore a revealing black velvet dress that made the most of her enviable cleavage for her night out. The top of the outfit featured two long shoulder straps that were lined with black mesh frills, while the deeply plunging neckline only just protected her modesty. A band around the waist of the dress ensured the skimpy piece didn’t reveal too much flesh, although a square of skin was visible between the band...
    WASHINGTON – The State Department’s internal watchdog has determined that the agency lied about the reasons it rescinded a prestigious award to a Finnish journalist, finding she was denied the honor because of her criticism of President Donald Trump. The department said it made a mistake in notifying Jessikka Aro that she had won an International Woman of Courage award in 2019 for her work in exposing Russian propaganda and misinformation. The agency's inspector general, however, said in a report issued Friday that her social media posts critical of Trump were the primary reason the award was rescinded. The report cited internal emails and interviews with those in the selection process that indicated the award was revoked because of fears...

The private Instagram account “Northport Confessions” recently shared a video of students from the Northport-East Northport school district fighting in different locations throughout the area.

    Charles Barkley and Sahquille O'Neal have been attacked on Twitter for defending the police after giving their views on the Breonna Taylor case.  Presenting the TNT pregame show ahead the Los Angeles Lakers vs Denver Nuggets, Barkley said Taylor's death couldn't be compared to the killing of George Floyd because Taylor's boyfriend opened fire on police who then shot back. O'Neal agreed, saying that - while the system may need to change - the officers involved were simply 'doing their job' on a warrant signed by a judge. That stance saw the pair immediately come under fire on social media for 'defending the police', as one person branded them: 'Skin folk, not kin folk.'  Shaquille O'Neal (left) and Charles...

    President Trump's opportunity to fill a Supreme Court seat weeks before Election Day is delivering an eleventh-hour jolt to his reelection campaign, according to early analysis of social media data in battleground states. "Coronavirus and the economy had been the issues driving a lot of the conversation online about this race, almost forever," Republican digital strategist Adam Meldrum told the Washington Examiner Thursday. "Within the last seven days, the Supreme Court has jumped up to the top." The issue is good for Trump, Meldrum says. Emotions on the court issue land between 5 and 10 points higher on a scale than on the coronavirus and the economy, and Trump earns more positive chatter and enthusiasm on this in...
    Surprise! “Booksmart” actress Billie Lourd has announced the birth of her first child with fiancé Austen Rydell. “Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell,” she captioned a clip of the infant’s feet posted to Instagram Thursday night. (The presence of blue hearts and a crown seem to indicate that the baby is a boy.) If Lourd’s announcement caught you off-guard, you’re not alone. Many of the comments on the post are from similarly gob-smacked celebs, like Lourd’s “Scream Queens” co-star Emma Roberts. Lourd has a history of keeping mum on social media about big life events: While Rydell posted about their engagement in June, Lourd never addressed the news directly on social media. Lourd and Rydell dated briefly when they were younger...
    Jamal Adams will give up on Quandre Diggs entirely if he gets ejected again. Quandre Diggs needs to stay in the damn game for Jamal Adams’ sake.

    Old social-media posts from Bon Appétit's editor in chief, Adam Rapaport, and drinks editor, Alex Delany, surfaced recently. Ethan Miller/Getty Images/Alex Delany/Instagram Condé Nast and its food publication Bon Appétit have come under fire as high-profile staff members have made — or been subjects of — allegations of racism, among other things. Between countless social-media posts, an exposé in which employees of color described a "toxic" work environment, and the resignations of executives, the publication has perhaps experienced its most turbulent period ever. Weeks after the initial controversy, seven BA YouTube stars announced they would no longer appear in the publication's popular videos.  Following former editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport's departure from the publication in June, publishing powerhouse Dawn Davis...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s first for Facebook: The social media giant sued by Kenosha protesters. They said the social media giant put them at risk. CBS 2’s Chris Tye reports those suing said the internet giant cost lives. The key question is: How did people like Kyle Rittenhouse know to go to Kenosha on August 25? Days after a white officer shot unarmed African American Jacob Blake in the back seven times. The loved ones of those killed in Kenosha said Facebook let posts inciting violence, lawlessness and racism stay up after being flagged hundreds of times. It appears the sheriff’s department threw water and permission into the hands of militia members on the night of August 25. In the...
    Facebook suspended the accounts of more than 200 people on September 19th who were connected to an event protesting the construction of the contested Coastal GasLink pipeline. The suspension shows how vulnerable activists are to the actions of social media platforms in the midst of a pandemic, when protesting in person comes with more risk than usual. Indigenous activists have opposed the pipeline’s construction, which would cut through the Wet’suwet’en Nation’s territory if built. The suspensions curbed one of the few outlets left on which activists can protest while socially distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It left some scrambling to communicate without Facebook messenger, and it has Wet’suwet’en activists rethinking how effectively they can push back against pipeline...
    President Donald Trump met with Attorney General Bill Barr, Sen. Josh Hawley, and other State Attorneys General on Wednesday to discuss social media censorship. “At the urging of the radical left, these platforms have become intolerant of diverse political views and abusive toward their own users,” Trump said at the event. The president noted that big tech and social media firms were threatening an “open internet and free society.” “Every year, countless Americans are banned, blacklisted, and silenced through arbitrary or malicious enforcement of ever-shifting rules,” Trump said. The president also voiced concerns about how social media companies gather data from consumers and attempts to manipulate the spread of information on their platform. The meeting was an update to the...
    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) –  Fort Collins police arrested a 23-year-old man on charges of sexually assaulting a child he met online. Abraham Carranza-Estrada reportedly met the victim when she visited family in April of 2020. The two met on social media, and then later in person. Police say the two engaged in sexual activity, and Carranza-Estrada asked the victim to send him sexually explicit pictures, which she did. Abraham Carranza-Estrada (credit: Larimer County) Police arrested the suspect on Sept. 17. “Sexual predators often use grooming behaviors to earn trust, create a false sense of intimacy, then engage in damaging acts with long-term impacts,” said Sgt.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 is foundational to the modern internet. What it says is that internet content providers aren’t responsible for content or comments posted by their users, even if the companies referee that content. This allowed companies like AOL and Facebook to step in and halt things like flame wars or racist diatribes, and to do so however they saw fit without having to worry that they could lose their status as mere common carriers that can’t be sued for things their customers say. Without this legal protection, no one would dare moderate anything and the...
    Following social media controversy over the French film “Cuties,” a conservative parents group is calling on President Donald Trump to have the Department of Justice investigate Netflix. The coming-of-age story, released internationally via Netflix earlier this month, follows an 11-year-old girl as she navigates her maturing sexuality while finding a place in her religious family — to awkward and sometimes appalling ends. And it’s those uncomfortable moments that prompted an outcry among concerned parents who call the film yet another example of Netflix’s “corporate practice of graphically and grotesquely sexualizing children through its entertainment programming,” according to Parents Television Council (PTC) President Tim Winter. In a letter addressed to Missouri’s Sen. Josh Hawley last week, the group urged the...

    By Menna A. Farouk CAIRO (Reuters) - In just two months, Egypt's burgeoning #MeToo movement has exposed sexual assaults, spurred legal reform and emboldened hundreds of abuse victims including celebrities to speak out, sparking a long-overdue debate about gender inequality. Now, rights activists in the conservative country say keeping the social media campaign's momentum going hinges on taking the message offline to reach poorer women, especially in rural areas, and changing attitudes in the justice system. "I hope this momentum does not remain in the upper- and middle-class segments of society, but moves downwards to the lower social classes as well," said Entessar El-Saeed, head of the Cairo Center for Development and Law, an NGO.

    CNN’s John Avlon launched into a dissection of President Donald Trump’s efforts to flood the political airwaves with false and dishonest content to attack Joe Biden. In his signature “Reality Check” segment on New Day, Avlon focused on numerous instances where Trump and his allies pushed misinformation and edited videos in order to score political points against his opponents. Avlon characterized this as “a clear pattern” by Trumpworld “to reinforce campaign narratives in the absence of facts.” Avlon proceeded by digging into several dishonest online pieces that falsely portray Biden as deficient in some way, or misrepresent his platforms and statements. “This is a deliberate strategy of serial social media dishonesty spread by the president and his campaign,” Avlon...

    LEITCHFIELD, Ky. (AP) — The group gathered around the town square, waiting for the arrival of what has become a new American boogeyman: antifa. Michael Johnson and others were certain that school buses full of radical left-wing extremists from big cities were coming to Leitchfield, Kentucky, where about 50 of their neighbors had gathered on the courthouse lawn to chant, “Black lives matter!” and wave signs in solidarity with the nation’s surging protest movement. The June 10 protest ended peacefully with no sign of any antifascist activists in the town of less than 7,000 people, but Johnson and his son sat awake outside their house all night, armed with a shotgun, just in case the antifa rumors he saw circulating...

    The social media giants — Facebook, Google’s YouTube, and Twitter — have, under pressure from the advertising industry, agreed to a set of “common definitions” for allegedly “hateful” and “harmful” content and to “harmonize” reporting standards for such content across the industry. This agreement amongst the Masters of the Universe means that the top social media platforms will no longer differ significantly from each other on hate speech enforcement. If you’ve been censored for “hate speech” on Facebook, expect to be censored on all the other platforms as well. The agreement came after sustained pressure against Facebook by the advertising industry, which has engaged in a months-long boycott of the platform. Via Reuters: Advertisers have complained for years that big...

    The Trump administration took a step forward in its fight against tech censorship. Proposed draft legislation sent to Congress by the Justice Department on Wednesday takes aim at social media platforms by modifying Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, seeking to narrow the scope of the liability protections granted by the act and eliminate the protection altogether for platforms that facilitate illegal activities. “For too long Section 230 has provided a shield for online platforms to operate with impunity,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement. “Ensuring that the internet is a safe, but also vibrant, open and competitive environment is vitally important to America. We therefore urge Congress to make these necessary reforms to Section 230 and...

    President Donald Trump will hold a discussion with state attorneys general on “protecting consumers from social media abuses” at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Trump has targeted Chinese-owned TikTok for national security and data privacy concerns in the latest flashpoint in the rising tensions between Washington and Beijing. The president’s support for a deal comes just a day after the Commerce Department announced restrictions that if put in place could eventually make it nearly impossible for TikTok’s legions of younger fans to use the app. On Saturday, he backed a proposed deal that allowed TkTok to partner with Oracle, a Texas-based company, and Walmart. TikTok said Oracle and Walmart could acquire up to a cumulative 20% stake in the new company in...

    Politicians have been poking at Section 230 for months. The DoJ doesn’t typically weigh in on legislation, but now, Barr is asking Congress to roll back critical aspects of Section 230. Not only is that unusual, it could add to speculation that some politicians are attempting to “bully tech companies into political submission,” as Senator Brian Schatz previously put it. Both Democratic and Republican lawmakers have been looking for ways to alter Section 230 and better regulate Big Tech in general. But President Trump also seems to have a personal vendetta against social media platforms. In addition to accusing Facebook and Twitter of having an anti-conservative bias, Trump criticized Twitter after it flagged and hid one of his tweets “for...
