Amazing catch in my story about anti-vax facebook pages -- there are no disclaimers on their video page, or links to the CDC.

New: we got actual facial recognition results from Clearview of one of our reporters. All of the results were accurate, and shows that Clearview isn't just scraping images from social networks, but shady sites that have already scraped Instagram etc

We used a California law to get Clearview AI to give me the file they have on me; it contains a collection of photos of my face culled from some extremely odd sources

In 2017, I wrote about a cable news host being gross and inappropriate with me. I was afraid to name him at the time. I'm not anymore; it was Chris Matthews! And his sexist exchange with Warren this week inspired me to revisit those moments and name him

Hundreds of janitors are picketing in freezing cold in front of the Minneapolis airport and an angry looking guy driving by stopped and screamed “Bloomberg! Bloomberg!” at them. The embodiment of Mike Bloomberg’s base.
