Facebook will be the first social media platform to have its reputation further tarnished as shares fell Monday more than 10% off its recent highs.
As I wrote Monday there will be an Internet Bill of Rights coming out of the Federal Trade Commission this year — once Trump’s three appointees are seated — that will regulate the terms and conditions of these platforms to align with First and Fourth Amendment protections in the Constitution.While this story of Facebook possibly being in cahoots with Cambridge Analytica to turn over 50 million Facebook user profiles during the run up to the 2016 US presidential election was coming out, it is still early in the week with the promise of two other big stories breaking, according to the latest postings from an entity call Q-Anon.
One of the booms — as Q-Anon calls breaking news — could be the release of the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI and DOJ’s actions related to its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.
This report could be quite damning not only to Clinton but reach deeply into the Obama White House on a host of illegal activities run out of State Department through the private server, which was not subject to government security protection or scrutiny.
The third piece of news, will be overseas — perhaps the Middle East — as Trump it is said will activate the US Marines.
