Rep. Devin Nunes (R - CA) sues Twitter and three users for «silencing conservative voices»
(Guess that our GOP snowflakes can't stand the criticism they raise with all their mockery, their outspeaking and such. Please hand this man down some essays on what free speech is all about, because it seems to me like he didn't understand it. Anyway, let's read on.)
Fox News on Monday uploaded a copy of the complaint to its website. It was unclear whether the suit had actually been filed, since the copy did not bear a case number. Nunes’ lawyer could not be reached for comment Monday night.
Guess he was only screaming for attention. But as we all know, one must not count one's chickens before they are hatched.
“They spread this fake news and the slanderous news,” Nunes told host Sean Hannity in an interview on Fox News, accusing Twitter of “proliferating out things that they agree with, with the algorithms” he said the company has developed.
Guess what - your party's disciples and voters do the very same, but no-one filed a lawsuit against any people or Social Networks. Now, quit your whining and go back to work, you're embarassing your people.

Putin under pressure: Duma declares fake news and insults a crime
Critics of the legislation say it would empower state officials to shut down websites that are critical of the Kremlin or other Russian authorities.
It also sets maximum fines for publishing "fake news" of 100,000 rubles (more than $1,500) on individuals, 200,000 rubles (more than $3,000) on public officials, and 500,000 rubles (about $7,600) on companies.
It says those who violate the law more than twice will be fined up to 300,000 rubles and spend up to 15 days in jail.

«Rappler» CEO Maria Ressa charged with 2,000 US dollars for criticism of Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte
“We will not duck, we will not hide, we will hold the line,” vowed the CEO of news website Rappler, who has been charged over a report her company ran seven years ago.
“Rappler, Ressa and Santos never attempted to obtain my side of the story on the crimes they wrongly imputed to me or to fact-check their baseless attacks against my name. I have never had a criminal record,” Keng said in a prepared statement issued shortly before Ressa’s release.
Asked whether Ressa’s arrest could impact ordinary citizens, La Viña said: “You can be sure, you can now be subjected to this type of thing. If you post something – even five years ago, it’s still up there, nothing ever disappears from the internet. If your enemy gets this and [files a case] against you, you can imagine the opportunity for corruption.”
