There’s always a tweet, right? Last month, the Biden campaign used a 10-second clip of President Trump during a rally speech saying, “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again . . . . You’ll never see me again.” Read Full Story

Tech leaders could stop the conspiracy theory from spreading on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube—if only they wanted to. Over the past several months, the conspiracy theory known as QAnon, which posits that politicians and A-list celebrities are engaging in child abuse and a “deep state” effort to undermine President Trump, has gone from being a curiosity to an increasingly dangerous force in American politics and society.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The social media company is finally responding to public outcry—but still won’t go so far as to delete one of Trump’s tweets.

Twitter slaps Trump tweet with ‘manipulated media’ label for the first time

{ object.primary_image.title }}

As we head into day two of the Republican National Convention, expect more of a smooth production, yet steeped in conflicting messages and its own reality.

Over the past four years, corporate America’s public response to the chaos of the Trump presidency has been uncomfortable silence. Save for a few high-profile incidents, such as the Muslim ban or Charlottesville, big-name CEOs have strived to preserve diplomatic relations with the president, sitting on his White House advisory boards or allowing their companies to be used as backdrops to Trump factory visits and chest-thumping press releases.
