Facebook says there is 'no evidence' of anti-conservative bias on Trending Topics
Facebook says there is “no evidence” that former contractors at the social network deliberately suppressed conservative news on the site’s Trending Topics section. Citing an unnamed former journalist that worked on the project, Gizmodo reported Monday that stories about the CPAC meeting, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics were prevented from appearing in the trending module. The stories were trending organically among Facebook’s users, the report said. Facebook addressed the allegations in a post late Monday: “We take these reports extremely seriously, and have found no evidence that the anonymous allegations are true,” wrote the company’s Vice President of Search Tom Stocky, whose team is responsible for Trending Topics. “Facebook is a platform for people and perspectives from across the political spectrum. There are rigorous guidelines in place for the review team to ensure consistency and neutrality,” he added. Several unnamed former Facebook “news curators” told Gizmodo that they were told to artificially “inject” certain stories into the trending news section, even if they weren’t popular enough to justify inclusion. In some cases the stories weren’t even trending at all, according to the report.

CNN MONEY April 05, 2016
Hackers have stolen sensitive information from American energy companies -- and have planted malware in the energy grid with the intent to turn off the lights in the future. They even managed to infect at least three energy companies with Cryptolocker ransomware, a particularly nasty computer virus that locks digital files and demands a ransom payment. Newly released documents from the Department of Homeland Security are finally shedding some light on what exactly hackers are doing when they sneak into the American electrical grid.
