  1. Summary
    Police believe an intentional firearm attack on two electrical substations in Moore County, NC is to blame for a power outage that has affected 35,000 customers. It began Saturday evening, resulting in thousands of households enduring freezing temperatures overnight without electricity. Temperatures aren't expected to go below freezing for the rest of the week.

    Police do not yet have a motive. Some speculated that the incident is linked to a drag performance event that caused local protests, but police said there is currently no evidence of that. Multiple federal agencies, including the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, are investigating.

    Kevin Perry, who used to oversee security at Arkansas' main electricity provider, said network redundancies usually prevent widespread blackouts, and that whoever is behind this incident likely knew which substations to target to cause a blackout. He said that while some of the most critical, high-voltage substations have ballistic walls around them, trying to protect all substations to that extent would be "cost prohibitive."

Was Twitter right to initially suppress the story on Hunter Biden’s laptop?

552 votes, 69 comments

Context: Recently released Twitter documents show how the company handled the Hunter Biden laptop story.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - Here the mainstream media suppressed or strongly downplayed a story with lots of evidence in favor of promoting pure conjecture by former intelligence officials (that the story resulted from Russian disinformation) because it fit their narrative. The social media companies could have been a bit of a check on the mainstream media by allowing both sides to be heard. Instead they went along with the suppression.


Yes - The concept of waiting until the validity of information is confirmed before allowing it to be spread on Twitter is good practice, however more transparency with the public...



Unsure - It's really hard to go back...
