The controversy involving Twitter and Hunter Biden dates to October 2020, weeks before the presidential election between Joe Biden and then-President Donald Trump.

Zuckerberg cited warnings from the FBI about election-related threats, though none about Hunter Biden in particular.

Representatives for Khanna did not answer questions about the congressman's current position on whether or not to repeal Section 230.

“Spoiler Alert,” the new film based on entertainment journalist Michael Ausiello’s heartbreaking 2017 memoir, certainly doesn’t have a storybook ending.

Facebook owner Meta Platforms is one of the companies that would be affected by the proposal in Canada. Google parent Alphabet Inc., Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc. and Bytedance Ltd., TikTok’s owner, are pushing back against a proposal in Canada that would force digital platforms to more prominently feature Canadian content and compensate news outlets. The new rules, championed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau , would require reworking existing algorithms so that if a person in Canada searched on YouTube, the results would display videos mostly from Canadian artists ahead of foreign or U.S.-made content.

SYDNEY, Dec 2 (Reuters) - An Australian law giving the government power to make internet giants Facebook owner Meta Platforms (META.O) and Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google negotiate content supply deals with media outlets has largely worked, a government report said. But the law, which took effect in March 2021 after talks with the big tech firms led to a brief shutdown of Facebook news feeds in the country, may need to be extended to other online platforms, the review said. The report mostly recommended that the government consider new methods of assessing the administration and effectiveness of the law, and did not suggest changing the law itself. "The review shows the Code has been successful balancing bargaining power between news media and digital platforms," said Assistant Treasurer Stephen Jones. "Digital platforms must continue to negotiate in good faith with news businesses to ensure they are fairly remunerated for the news content they create."
