Two members of the US House of Representatives have sent a formal letter to the Federal Communications Commission Inspector General calling for an investigation of Chairman Ajit Pai.

Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) believe Pai "has taken actions to improperly benefit Sinclair Broadcast Group."

The investigation would focus on the interactions of Mr. Pai and officials at Sinclair Broadcast Group.

The Congressmen believe Pai hasn't sufficiently answered questions related to these meetings and are hoping a federal investigation can clear things up.

They are questioning whether or not Pai and others at the FCC have used personal messaging channels and private emails to communicate with Sinclair.

This would be a violation of the Federal Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act.

A U.S. senator is probing reports of a breach of data from smart toys from Spiral Toys, writing to the company’s CEO a letter with ten questions about the issue, including about the company’s security practices.

Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat, wrote in a letter Tuesday to CEO Mark Meyers that the breach raises serious questions concerning how well the company protects the information it collects, particularly from children.

Nelson also said that the incident raises questions about the vendor's compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act that requires covered companies to have reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of personal information collected from children.

The letter from Nelson was shared on Twitter by security researcher Troy Hunt, who exposed the breach in a blog post on Feb. 28.

The toys, sold under the CloudPets brand, allow parents and their children to send voice messages over the internet.

Hunt found evidence that hackers had looted the unsecured MongoDB database that stored the toys' customer login information.

When the newly-minted chair of a congressional antitrust committee calls you out, it’s probably time to start worrying.

In an op-ed for the New York Times, Rhode Island Representative David N. Cicilline has called on the Federal Trade Commission to look into Facebook’s behavior for potential antitrust violations, citing TechCrunch’s own reporting that the company collected data on teens through a secret paid program among many other scandals.

“After each misdeed becomes public, Facebook alternates between denial, hollow promises and apology campaigns,” Cicilline wrote.

That’s why, as chairman of the House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law, I am calling for an investigation into whether Facebook’s conduct has violated antitrust laws.”

Cicilline’s op-ed intends to put pressure on the FTC, a useful regulatory arm that he accuses of “facing a massive credibility crisis” due to its inaction to date against Facebook.

And while the FTC is the focus of Cicilline’s call to action, the op-ed provides an insightful glimpse into what Facebook actions are salient for the lawmaker that Bloomberg called “the most powerful person in tech” when he became the ranking member of the House Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law this year.

President Trump tweeted today he wants to give embattled smartphone company ZTE “a way to get back into business, fast.”

He posted that he is working with China’s president Xi Jinping to help save ZTE.

He added that he instructed the U.S. Commerce Department “to get it done!”

A few days ago, things were looking bleak for China’s smartphone company ZTE.

The company admitted earlier this week that it had ended its “major” business operations, due to a hardware supply ban placed on it by the U.S.

Now, it looks like ZTE found an unexpected, and very powerful, ally: President Donald J. Trump,

Facebook is fighting to get Washington onside after it shocked regulators and lawmakers with its announcement on June 18 that it was hoping to launch a cryptocurrency called Libra in 2020.

Since then the social media company has faced criticism from policymakers and financial watchdogs at home and abroad who fear widespread adoption of the digital currency by Facebook’s 2.38 billion users could upend the financial system.

“Facebook has demonstrated through scandal after scandal that it doesn’t deserve our trust,” Democratic senator Sherrod Brown, the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, said in his opening remarks.

“We’d be crazy to give them a chance to let them experiment with people’s bank accounts.”

Brown added during questioning that he thought it was “delusional” to think individuals would trust the social media company with their “hard-earned” money.

Before announcing its Libra plans, Facebook was already facing a backlash over mishandling user data and not doing enough to prevent Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016, several reports citing unnamed sources said the giant phone company is in advanced talks to buy Time Warner, owner of the Warner Bros. movie studio as well as HBO and CNN.

AT is said to be offering $80 billion or more, a massive deal that would shake up the media landscape.

NEW YORK AP — AT and Time Warner are playing up how their $85.4 billion merger will lead to innovative new experiences for customers.

Tim Kaine, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, said less concentration in media "is generally helpful."

And the Republican chairman and Democratic ranking member of the Senate's antitrust subcommittee said that the deal would "potentially raise significant antitrust issues."

Chairman Walden, Ranking Member Pallone and Members of the Committee,

We face a number of important issues around privacy, safety and democracy, and you will rightfully have some hard questions for me to answer.

Before I talk about the steps we're taking to address them, I want to talk about how we got here.

For most of our existence, we focused on all the good that connecting people can bring.

That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy.

Lyft has brought on Nilka Thomas to join the company as its new vice president of talent and inclusion .

At Lyft, Thomas will be tasked with overseeing recruiting, inclusion, diversity and employee relations.

Most importantly, in my eyes, is that Thomas will “Ensure that inclusion and diversity efforts are seamlessly integrated from the earliest candidate touch points,” Lyft wrote on its blog.

Prior to joining Lyft, Thomas spent more than ten years at Google, as part of the company’s recruitment and business growth teams.

Thomas is now the highest-ranking member of the Lyft team that is focused on inclusion and diversity.

In September 2016, Lyft brought on Tariq Meyers to serve as its first-ever head of inclusion and diversity.

Chaffetz Bill moved out of committee

Hamilton Davison sat in the office of Rep. Elijah Cummings D-MD Last month hashing out the details of the draft of a postal reform bill.

The session went long, which was good.

The scent of bipartisan compromise—a bouquet in short supply in the halls of Congress—was in the air and the president of the American Catalog Mailers Association and the Ranking Member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee were finding common ground.

Two postal reform bills introduced in the last three years by postal reform's chief advocate Tom Carper, the Senator from Delaware, have gone nowhere.

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz, appeared uninterested in the issue and let it languish.

Senators Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights, and ranking member Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, said they will hold in November a subcommittee hearing on the proposed acquisition.

We have carefully examined consolidation in these industries to ensure that existing market leaders do not block or co-opt new options for receiving video content or exercise disproportionate control over the video content market, the senators said Sunday.

We will continue to carefully review and investigate any consolidation in this industry to makes sure that it does not harm consumers.

There is concern that as the owner of pipes to the consumer such as DirecTV, the satellite TV company it acquired last year, and its broadband and mobile services, AT could skew the market by giving preference to content from Time Warner over that of its rivals.

It looks like Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai will get to keep his job for another five years, despite protests from Democrats.

Republicans have enough votes to reconfirm Pai, whose term expired in June.

Nominated as a commissioner under former President Barack Obama, Pai was elevated to the role of chairman in January, following the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

Democrats and consumer groups have spoken out against Pai's renomination.

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee, said Pai's policies "eliminate competitive protections, threaten dangerous industry consolidation, make the internet less free and less open, and weaken critical consumer protections for those most vulnerable."

"If you believe communications networks should be fast, fair, open and affordable," she wrote, "you need to ask your senator to vote against Pai's reconfirmation.

Klobuchar wants answers over the fast-tracked Whole Foods gobble

A ranking member of the Senate's Antitrust Subcommittee wants a top US regulator to explain why it was so quick to approve Amazon's purchase of high-end grocery chain Whole Foods.

Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) says she is "concerned" over the speed with which Amazon completed its $13.7bn acquisition of the kombucha-slinging organic money sink.

The deal gives Amazon hundreds of storefronts in the US to go along with its massive online shopping empire.

Amazon first announced it had agreed to buy Whole Foods on June 16, and after a short review the transaction is slated to be completed on Monday, August 28.

Now, Klobucher wants someone from the FTC to step up and explain why a process that usually takes several months to complete was concluded in less than 10 weeks.

At a Tuesday hearing on facial recognition by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, lawmakers questioned how government agencies like the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration have been using the technology.

The FBI faced heavy criticism for failing to meet the Government Accountability Office's recommendations on accuracy, transparency and privacy issues.

"They still haven't fixed the five things they were supposed to do when they started," Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio and the ranking member of the oversight committee, said at the hearing.

"But we're supposed to believe 'don't worry, everything's just fine.'"

Those five recommendations about the use of facial recognition systems include publishing privacy documents, conducting privacy impact assessments, improving sample sizes in accuracy tests, testing accuracy of partners, and conducting annual reviews of accuracy.

Rep. Mark Meadows, a Republican from North Carolina, called on the FBI to implement those recommendations as soon as possible.
