Amid an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Facebook came under fire for its opacity on how it targets political ads. A few months ago, ProPublica released Political Ad Collector, a tool that crowdsources the job of monitoring ads -- including those that might not seem political at first. ProPublica’s Julia Angwin shares the findings with Hari Sreenivasan. From PBS NewsHour.
The Twitter page, "Yes, You're Racist," is becoming a new battleground after Saturday's violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The account is shifting its focus to exposing white supremacists who protested the city's effort to remove a Robert E. Lee statue. Many of those protesters were clearly identifiable but largely anonymous. The man who runs the account wants to change that. Kris Van Cleave reports. From CBS This Morning.

Julie Chen talks about Selena Gomez being cyber bullied, and Aisha Tyler reflects with her own experiences with online trolls: "It happens to me almost every day... I came out a few years ago and I talked about, when I was married, that my husband and I had gone through IVF and it wasnt working, and I decided I wanted to stop because I didn't want to put my body through that... And the number of people that go online every single day, that go on our Facebook page and go 'How can Aisha talk about kids? She's barren. She can't have kids. She shouldn't even speak about this, she knows nothing about it.' It is the cruelest, most evil place you're coming from when you think it's okay to say that about another person... I'm okay because this is my life, and I'm living it every day, and I know who I am, but it takes a very weak and empty person to say that to another human being." From The Talk.
