As the nation heads into another presidential election, many consumers believe the problem of “fake news” hasn’t been solved after Donald Trump popularized the term on the 2016 presidential campaign trail.More than half of respondents (86%) to a recent survey conducted by Killi, a company that aims to give consumers control of which platforms and organizations use their data, cited fake news as an ongoing problem.The company surveyed more than 8,000 U.S. and Canadian adult users of its app on Sept. 24-25.“The general public’s awareness that large, centralized platforms like Google and Facebook have an enormous and opaque influence on the media and political ecosystem is compounding,” said Neil Sweeney, founder and CEO of Killi and Freckle, another data company, in a statement.“There is no going backwards, as irrespective of party, politicians are seeing this as an abuse of citizens and voters.”Of those respondents concerned about fake news, 81% said the issue first took root during the 2016 election and continues to be a problem.
A group of 107 cross-party politicians have signed a letter to the editor of the Sun, Tony Gallagher, demanding action over a column it published on Sunday in which it used “Nazi-like terminology” to “demonise” the Muslim community in the UK.The letter, seen exclusively by the Independent, forms part of a joint effort from MPs representing Labour, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and the Green party to demand the paper addresses “the bigotry that has long been present” in the columns of the Sun, particularly in reference to the latest column it published by the paper's former political editor Trevor Kavanagh.In the comment piece, Kavanagh argues Islam constitutes the “one unspoken fear” which links Britain and the rest of Europe but claims the phenomenon has been suppressed by political correctness.“The common denominator, almost unsayable until last week’s furore over Pakistani sex gangs, is Islam,” he wrote, in reference to the 18 people who were convicted in a Newcastle grooming gang last week.“Thanks to former equalities chief Trevor Phillips, and Labour MPs such as Rotherham’s Sarah Champion, it is acceptable to say Muslims are a specific rather than a cultural problem."Jewish and Muslim organisations in Britain have issued a joint complaint to the press regulator arguing the article’s reference to the “Muslim Problem” resembles the Nazi references to the “The Jewish Problem” and sets a dangerous precedent.
An image sent by DNC staffer Alexandra Chalupa shows a warning message she received from Yahoo Mail.An e-mail message within the Wikileaks dump of Democratic National Committee data suggests that the Yahoo account of one DNC staffer may have been specifically targeted by Russian hackers.The leaked message from DNC staffer Alexandra Chalupa includes a photo of a screen displaying a pop-up alert in Yahoo Mail warning, "We strongly suspect that your account has been the target of state-sponsored actors.""Since I started digging into Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, these messages have been a daily occurrence on my Yahoo account despite changing my password often," Chalupa reported in the message.Chalupa was looking into Manafort's work in Ukraine, where Manafort managed the campaign of former Ukraine President Viktor F. Yanukovych who fled to Russia after violent protests against his regime and worked with pro-Russian and Communist Party politicians forming an opposition block to the current government.The detail, spotted by cybersecurity researcher Matt Tait and posted to the Twitter account @pwnallthethings, offers another hint at the scope of the campaign to collect intelligence on DNC operations by what appears to be Russia-based "actors" operating on the behalf of Russian intelligence.
