Facebook battles fake Libra sellers before launching its controversial cryptocoin
Libra already has the dubious honour of being so dodgy that its dodginess is pretty much the only thing U.S. lawmakers from both sides of the aisle  can actually agree on. It’s been dubbed a “shitcoin” by a sitting congressman, put on tweet-blast by Donald Trump, and sent some other cryptocurrency prices tumbling. To top it all off, Facebook’s decentralised blockchain currency project is inspiring some online (ahem) entrepreneurs to sell fake Libra — even though it won’t be available until 2020. A Washington Post report found that “roughly a dozen” pages across Facebook and Instagram are pretending to be authorised hubs where users can purchase the currency, using official marketing images and designs, and sometimes even photos of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Some promise discounted rates available on external third-party sites.  Read more...More about Facebook, Libra, Cryptocurrency, Big Tech Companies, and Tech

To fix the problem of deepfakes we must treat the cause, not the symptoms | Matt Beard
Once technology is released, it’s like herding cats. Why do we continue to let the tech sector manage its own mess?We haven’t yet seen a clear frontrunner emerge as the Democratic candidate for the 2020 US election. But I’ve been interested in another race – the race to see which buzzword is going to be a pivotal issue in political reporting, hot takes and the general political introspection that elections bring. In 2016 it was “fake news”. “Deepfake” is shoring up as one of the leading candidates for 2020.This week the US House of Representatives intelligence committee asked Facebook, Twitter and Google what they were planning to do to combat deepfakes in the 2020 election. And it’s a fair question. With a bit of work, deepfakes could be convincing and misleading enough to make fake news look like child’s play. Continue reading...

Could Trump’s racist rhetoric win him re-election in 2020? – podcast
On 14 July, Donald Trump used Twitter to tell four unnamed Democratic congresswomen to ‘go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came’. His racist language shocked many around the world, but he has refused to back down. The Guardian’s Jamiles Lartey looks at Trump’s history of racism while David Smith discusses how it may affect the 2020 presidential race. And: Ellie Geranmayeh on the Iran crisisAlthough Donald Trump did not name the targets of his racists tweets on 14 July, it was clear the attack was directed at a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Only Omar, who is from Somalia, was not born in the US. Pressley is African American, Tlaib was born to Palestinian immigrants and Ocasio-Cortez comes from a New York-Puerto Rican family.While many were quick to criticise the president, Republicans mostly defended Trump against charges of racism. Several days later, lawmakers passed a resolution condemning his tweets – though this was approved along mostly partisan lines, with only four Republicans joining Democrats in condemning the president’s racism.
