Mark Zuckerberg is trying to avoid personal liability in lawsuits over kids' social media addiction. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is arguing he can't be held personally liable for accusations that his platforms have led to kids being addicted to social media — and he may have a point. A ruling in the billionaire's favor would excuse him from being held personally liable but would not dismiss the cases against Meta. AdvertisementThe lawsuits claim that Zuckerberg's actions and inaction led to social media addiction and accused him of ignoring warnings that Facebook and Instagram were unsafe for kids. AdvertisementIf Zuckerberg is deemed personally liable, it could have major implications for other lawsuits filed against CEOs of social media giants.

Workplace conflict often looks like high school drama, according to consultant Rosalind Wiseman. Wiseman is no stranger to teen drama — in fact, she literally wrote the book on it. The corporate world and high school aren't the same, but the similarities are striking"The answer that I should say is that, 'Oh, adults are so much more mature than kids,'" she told Business Insider when asked about how workplace drama compares to high school. Wiseman said workplace drama tends to look different than what you see in high school — teens can be far more "crass" — but the levels of sophistication in which the conflicts and undermining play out can be similar. AdvertisementWhatever the conflict, adults can end up feeling similar to high schoolers — excluded, taken advantage of, or even bullied.

Read previewRussian President Vladimir Putin told Russian state TV presenter Pavel Zarubin that he expected tougher questions from Tucker Carlson, seemingly trolling the former Fox News host.

Carlson was the first Western journalist to interview Putin since the invasion of Ukraine two years ago.

Read previewRussian President Vladimir Putin delivered a strange performance fueled by Russian propaganda and imperialist posturing in his interview with right-wing media host Tucker Carlson last week. The two-hour interview revealed little new information about the war in Ukraine — beyond that it is likely to continue — but did manage to highlight Putin's increasing delusion, according to two Russia historians. AdvertisementThe Russian president parroted in great, slogging detail many of the erroneous talking points he's used over the years to bolster his belief that Ukraine ought to be under Russian control.

Regardless, the Democratic Party could have avoided this altogether. But the same poll suggested that if the choice was between Trump and another Democratic candidate, 40% would probably vote for Trump and 48% would vote for the Democratic candidate. David Axelrod, a former strategist for Barack Obama, said at the time the polls would "send tremors of doubt" through the Democratic Party. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party," he wrote on X.

In a matter of minutes, Republicans failed to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. For days after gaining the majority, the GOP was unable to secure enough votes to make Kevin McCarthy House speaker. Between those two events, House GOP leaders lost control of the floor multiple times.
