12 Democrats still in U.S. presidential race days before Iowa caucuses

12 Democrats still in U.S. presidential race days before Iowa caucusesThe Republican choice will almost certainly be President Donald Trump. Biden, who was vice president under President Barack Obama, has largely stayed atop the Democratic field for months, arguing that his more than 40 years in elected office makes him best suited to take over for Trump on day one. Trump's apparent effort to push the Ukrainian government to investigate Biden and his family served to boost Biden's argument that Trump views him as a top threat.

French govt defends teen girl bullied for anti-Islam posts

French govt defends teen girl bullied for anti-Islam postsFor some, she brought the storm upon herself with Instagram video posts last week that crudely savaged the religion in a country with an estimated 5 million Muslims. For others, she was simply exercising the right to free expression, legally guaranteed and fiercely defended in France. Without getting into the right or wrong of what the teen said, the government's point-person against sexism and other forms of discrimination was witheringly critical of the cyber-bullying that the teen is facing.

‘Very Concerned’ George Soros Claims Facebook ‘Will Work Together to Re-Elect Trump’

‘Very Concerned’ George Soros Claims Facebook ‘Will Work Together to Re-Elect Trump’Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros warned a crowd Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that Facebook is conducting an “informal mutual assistance operation” to help get Donald Trump elected in 2020.“I think there is a kind of informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook,” Soros claimed without evidence. “Facebook will work together to re-elect Trump, and Trump will work to protect Facebook so that this situation cannot be changed and it makes me very concerned about the outcome for 2020.”Soros, who speaks annually at Davos, has criticized Facebook from the same stage before, insinuating it was like a gambling company for its “addictive” features in 2018, and emphasizing the need to regulate technology platforms last year.“Facebook basically has only one guiding principle: maximize your profits irrespective of what harm it may do to the world,” Soros said Thursday.“This is just plain wrong,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone told Bloomberg in response.Earlier this month, an internal memo from a top Facebook employee who oversee advertising for the company in 2016 denied that Trump got elected from a Russian disinformation campaign.“They weren’t running misinformation or hoaxes,” Andrew Bosworth said of the Trump campaign’s efforts. “They weren’t micro-targeting or saying different things to different people. They just used the tools we had to show the right creative to each person. The use of custom audiences, video, ecommerce, and fresh creative remains the high water mark of digital ad campaigns in my opinion.”Facebook has come under fire both internally and externally for CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to allow political advertising regardless of whether it disseminates disinformation.“People worry, and I worry deeply, too, about an erosion of truth,” Zuckerberg told the Washington Post in October. “At the same time, I don’t think people want to live in a world where you can only say things that tech companies decide are 100 percent true. In general, in a democracy, I think that people should be able to hear for themselves what politicians are saying.”Senator Elizabeth Warren, an outspoken critic of Facebook's lax advertising policy, said in November that a private dinner between Trump and Zuckerberg amounted to “corruption.”
