Facebook is a social network monopoly that buys, copies or kills competitors, antitrust committee finds

  • The House Antitrust Subcommittee determined Facebook wields monopoly powers in social network and has maintained its position by acquiring, copying or killing its competitors, according to a report released by the subcommittee on Tuesday. 
  • The report describes an exchange in which Mark Zuckerberg suggested to Instagram Co-founder Kevin Systrom that “refusing to enter into a partnership with Facebook, including an acquisition, would have consequences for Instagram.”
  • The report recommends that Congress review a series of potential remedies. This includes “structural separation,” which could “require divestiture and separate ownership of each business.”

U.S. intel agencies failing to counter threat from China, says House Intelligence Committee report

WASHINGTON — After two decades of prioritizing counterterrorism, U.S. intelligence agencies are failing to sufficiently understand and counter the national security threat posed by China, the House Intelligence Committee concludes in a new report issued Wednesday.

The report, based on hundreds of hours of interviews with intelligence officers and thousands of analytic assessments, finds that the intelligence community must change how it does business — not only to improve its insights into China, but also to better address “the growing importance of interlocking non-military transnational threats, such as global health, economic security, and climate change.”

The report recommends that spy agencies make better use of open source data, modernize hiring practices and re-orient spending priorities. Although the committee’s Democratic majority wrote the report, the full committee approved it Wednesday morning in a bipartisan voice vote.

TikTok tells Australian Senate committee it doesn’t want to be a ‘political football’

In a submission to the Senate Select Committee and its inquiry into Foreign Interference Through Social Media, controversial video-sharing app TikTok has taken the opportunity to address what it has labelled misinformation in regards to itself.

TikTok, owned by China’s ByteDance Ltd, is currently offered in “all major markets” except China, where the company offers a different short-form video app called Douyin, and Hong Kong, following the introduction of its new security law.

It is currently banned in India and was previously on the US’ chopping block when President Donald Trump issued executive orders to ban the app. TikTok received approval to operate in the US, however, when the app’s US footprint was sold to Oracle and Walmart.

The BJP’s Nishikant Dubey has called for Shashi Tharoor’s removal from the parliamentary committee.

New Delhi:

Facebook representatives have been summoned by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology in a row over a US media report that claims that the social networking site deliberately ignored incendiary content from members of the ruling BJP and right-wing voices that was “flagged internally”.

The panel — headed by senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor — will hear the Facebook representatives on September 2. The notice came in the middle of a battle within the Standing Committee, with two BJP members calling for the removal of Mr Tharoor from the post of the panel chief.

Earlier on Thursday, Union minister Rajyavardhan Rathore and the BJP’s Nishikant Dubey — both members of the panel — wrote to the Lok Sabha Speaker.

The BJP leaders have alleged that Mr Tharoor has broken rules by tweeting his
