It is very American to question our elected officials and to demand accountability

A shocking allegation

A Twitter whistleblower has made a shocking allegation against the social media giant to Congress and several federal agencies. Twitter’s former head of security, Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, says that Twitter has “major security problems that pose a threat to its own users’ personal information, to company shareholders, to national security, and to democracy.” He claims these security flaws make Twitter susceptible to hacking, manipulation and disinformation.

Nick Arama of reports that according to Zatko, “thousands of employees — almost half the workforce — have access to the platform’s central controls and the most sensitive information on users without adequate oversight. The report notes that one or more current employees may even be working for foreign intelligence.”

In response to Elon Musk’s charge that Twitter wasn’t being honest about how many of its accounts are bots, Zatko accused Twitter’s bosses of misleading the board and federal regulators. He said they actually have no way of measuring how many bots there are.

Twitter responded by claiming that Zatko was fired for “poor performance.” Maybe that means he failed to keep his mouth shut.

Judging from my experience, it’s hard to imagine any connections between Twitter’s employees and intelligence of any kind, particularly the "fact-checkers." But if you were looking for yet another reason to get off social media, here it is on a silver platter. Remember the cardinal rule of social media: if you don’t pay anything for the company’s product, then you are the company’s product.


Paul Pelosi is found guilty

Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi’s wealthy husband Paul Pelosi pleaded guilty to DUI and causing injury in a car crash back in May. He was sentenced to five days in jail, three years’ probation, restitution payments and a three-month drunk driving program.

But don’t get excited expecting to see a Pelosi in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon (unless Nancy buys a designer one.) The judge ruled that he already had credit for four days of jail time. I know what you're thinking: no, not from his marriage to Nancy Pelosi. That's just mean! The judge meant he had two days of jail time credit from actual time served (did he really spend 48 hours in the slammer?), two for conduct credits, and the remaining day to be covered by an eight-hour work program. 

It would be easy to carp about politically-connected rich liberals getting away with anything these days, but to be fair, this is California, where even everyday armed robbers, carjackers and killers are released without bail before the ink is dry on their arrest warrants.

Big audience shows up to say goodbye

CNN drew some of its biggest ratings in a long time (nowhere near Fox News’ ratings, but big for CNN) on Sunday night when they aired the final episode of the recently-fired Brian Stelter’s laughably-misnamed show, “Reliable Sources.”

It reminds me of what Red Skelton reportedly said about the huge crowd that unexpectedly showed up for widely-despised Columbia Studios boss Harry Cohn’s funeral: “It just goes to prove, give the people what they want and they’ll show up for it.”
