Opacity of ogling onomatomania II...

Hat-tip Zero Hedge. We knew about Google; we knew about Facebook (who are trying to blame algorithms [must be Al Gore Rhythms]: "Even though the math part of the data is unbiased, if the data encodes these social biases, it's hard to get away from that") but now pretty much all the major social networks (Google, Facebook, Buzzfeed, Instagram, Snapchat) are "fixing" their feeds...and I don't mean repairing.

How is it possible they missed (not slightly corrected) the biggest story in the USA* for so long? * That the Hillary Clinton email-server investigation will be re-opened. The Director of the FBI (independently i.e. ignoring Attorney General Loretta Lynch [I wonder why?!!]) sent a letter to Congress saying that they had discovered e-mails that were relevant to the investigation. All this was ignored and stories with forty or more times fewer mentions getting preference. Wow, that data encoding social biases sure is effective.

Some say it could be payback; the whining Democratic supporters and Clinton shills and HRC herself are being very hypocritical; this is certainly not unprecedented...oh, against a Democrat nominee maybe it is.

Anyway, what we have here is...a popcorn overload!

Update 21:30 GMT: Ex CIA: "Nobody uses a private email server for official business. Period. Full stop."...[Link] "Anyone else who did such things in the government would long ago have been tried, convicted and sent to jail."
