    Comcast, AT&T Are Paying Minority Groups To Support Killing Net Neutrality

    For years, we've noted how one of the greasier lobbying tactics in telecom is the use of minority groups to provide the illusion of broad support for what's often awful policy. Such groups are given cash for a shiny new event center in exchange for parroting any policy position that comes across their desks, even if it dramatically undermines their constituents. As a result, we've shown how time and time again you'll see minority coalitions like the "Hispanic Technology ...

    Most Government Workers Could Be Replaced By Robots, New Study Finds

    A study by a British think tank, Reform, says that 90% of British civil service workers have jobs so pointless, they could easily be replaced by robots, saving the government around $8 billion per year. The study, published this week, says that robots are “more efficient” at collecting data, processing paperwork, and doing the routine tasks that now fall to low-level government employees. Even nurses and doctors, who are government employees in the UK, could be relieved of some duties by mec...

    Duterte's war on drugs has created "an economy of murder" in the Philippines, says Amnesty International

    President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs in the Philippines has created incentives to kill and “an economy of murder,” according to a new report by Amnesty International. More than 7,000 drug-related killings have taken place in the nation since Duterte came to power seven months ago. According to an officer who spoke to the rights group, police are paid $160 to $300 extra in cash—secretly, back at headquarters—for each extrajudicial execution disguised as a legitimate operation. They ...

    Donald Trump signs orders advancing construction of Keystone, Dakota pipelines

    President Donald Trump took steps to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, marking the start of an era with fewer constraints on the oil industry to the chagrin of environmentalists who have bitterly fought the projects. The moves, among Trump’s first actions since taking office, are a major departure from the Obama administration, which rejected TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone proposal in 2015 and has kept Dakota Access blocked since September.

    In a first, judge finds teacher's Colorado high doesn't count in Texas

    After Maryam Roland, a public high school teacher in Ysleta, in El Paso, tested positive for marijuana use in 2015, the State Board for Educator Certification sought to suspend her license for two years. In her defense, Roland argued that because she’d smoked the pot during a vacation in Colorado, where the drug has been legal for recreational use since 2013, she had done nothing wrong.

    NSA to share data with other agencies without “minimizing” American information

    On Thursday The New York Times reported that the Obama administration had recently finalized rules to give the National Security Agency (NSA) more leeway in sharing its vast trove of intercepted communications with the 15 other government agencies that make up the Intelligence Community. Previously, agencies like the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation would have to request information on a target from the NSA.

    Could Technology Remove the Politicians From Politics?

    What if your city council member was essentially a robot whose every decision you and your fellow citizens voted for by phone? The tech industry has talked long and hard about democratizing industries. Democratizing content, democratizing taxi-cabs, and democratizing bed and breakfasts. But what about democratizing democracy?

    Opinion: Trump Could Be the Most Corruptible President Ever

    With a characteristic combination of delay, omission and Twitter, Donald Trump announced last week that his sons, two of his closest advisers, would take over running his companies and that he would keep his ownership stake. He would not liquidate his assets and put them into a true blind trust. This week, Trump’s team floated a new idea, a kind of trust that also wouldn’t be “blind” in any real way, since it would allow Trump to keep any eye on how his businesses are doing.

    Donald Trump Turns to Always-Wrong Pseudo-Economist Lawrence Kudlow

    Distasteful or even alarming though he may be, Donald Trump has presented a tantalizing possibility of a Republican who would take “a wrecking ball to many of his adopted party’s orthodoxies, proposing a vision of right-wing politics far more mercantilist, nationalist and statist than anything we’ve seen from the post-Reagan, post-Goldwater G.O.P.,” as Ross Douthat, among many others, put it. But the emerging cast in Trump’s administration, from the appointment of Tom Price to run the ...
