On today’s show: Manafort and Russian Collusion
01:15 Connor’s much different take on the Senate Judiciary Committee Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee on the Russian Ad Collusion during the election. Facebook, Twitter and Google were represented and questioned. Main stream media had a much different take.
02:30 Basic knowledge of social media and internet was largely missing. Internet is global with no borders, and some of the questions did not really apply.
03:35 Is the FCC going to step in?
03:50 Kennedy praised but he was in his own Lalaland and bullied the lawyers with questions that could not be answered in the confines he wanted. Kennedy was nothing but a showboat and didn’t know what he was talking about.
05:00 Internet is built on anonymity.
05:50 Facebook stock is down today as they announce having to hire 10,000 people ‘readers’.
06:40 Sasse, Klobuchar and Ted Cruz did well, seemed to know technology. Content examples were always bashing Clinton, or pro Trump only. Cruz gets crucified by media for straying from the focus, but instead presented a tally of positives/negative posts that suggest the media giants use their platforms by throttling traffic to support their own political agendas. Cruz tallies show Bernie Sanders with most positive comments, followed closely behind by Hillary, with Trump behind with less than a half of the number of positive posts of either Clinton or Sanders.
08:25 Twitter lawyer presents data on an example ad, telling voters they can vote via text. Twitter data showed that the one post had 8 times the replies calling out the post as fake content. Who really got the bigger exposure? They also pressured Twitter to answer how many people called the number, but Twitter had nothing to do with that phone number, so the question could not be answered, yet the bullying over how many people called this number continued.
