If you had “Russian” malware on your computer, the FBI reached in and fixed it for you. Thanks, FBI!
This happened through what the FBI called Operation MEDUSA. The agency was given authorization from a court to seek out malware called Snake and remove it from U.S. computers. The FBI says that they notified owners whose computers they remotely accessed. They say that they'd been following the Snake program for 20 years. They say that it had been stealing documents from hundreds of computers that belonged to NATO members and other targets of interest to the Kremlin.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken says that the U.S. has developed an artificial intelligence system to detect and gather “Russian” disinformation on the internet. He called it “an AI-enabled online Ukraine Content Aggregator to collect verifiable Russian disinformation and then to share that with partners around the world.”
The U.S. is also engaged in disinformation campaigns worldwide, which one analyst says is their attempt to “fight fire with fire.”
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced that he would launch a new show on Twitter. It will be an extension of the show he did on FOX News up until last month, when he was suddenly taken off the air.
Carlson was offered millions by independent channels but elected to take his show to Twitter instead, even though Elon Musk says that he has no special deal to do so. Musk also says that Carlson will be “subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators. Rewards means subscriptions and advertising revenue share (coming soon), which is a function of how many people subscribe and the advertising views associated with the content."
Carlson alludes to the fact that he was fired from mainstream media for reporting on certain “off-limits” topics when he says, “if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it.” But will Twitter allow those topics? Carlson says that “Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops.”
Musk says that he hopes many other creators will choose to stream on Twitter, “particularly from the left.” In a separate Tweet, Musk said that Twitter aims to be the world's number-one podcast platform too.

Students at Cambridge University are protesting a movie about population decline that they have not seen. They say that speaking about population decline is anti-feminist, oppressive and hateful.
The film is called “Birthgap” and was made by demographer Stephen J. Shaw. He discusses the various reasons countries around the world are experiencing population decline. The student who invited Shaw to screen his film at Cambridge says that she has been subject to personal attacks but that protestors will not explain their objection to the film or rebut the film's premise that global populations are in fact in decline as even the United Nations has acknowledged.
This is further indication that in the modern world, people who oppose ideology are too lazy to rebut. So they cancel. Watch our take on the discussion in Tuesday’s episode of Redacted.

23.4%. That was the revenue decline for Bud Light in the week of April 29, worse than the previous week's 21.4% decline. This downward trend began in April after transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney announced a Bud Light sponsorship. It is now spilling over into other Budweiser products, including Michelob Ultra and Modelo Especial. Rival brands Coors Light and Miller Light both saw a 20% increase in sales in the same week.

The Head-Scratching Trump Verdict
A jury in the rape trial for former President Trump found that he was not guilty of raping E. Jean Carroll but should be held responsible for sexual abuse and defamation. The verdict awards $5 million to Carroll in damages.
The verdict is, as Trump’s lawyer Joseph Tacopina put it, “perplexing” and “strange.” The jury marked “no” when asked to rule on whether or not “Mr. Trump raped Ms. Carroll.” When asked to rule on whether or not he “forcibly touched Ms. Carroll” they returned no verdict. When asked to rule on whether he “sexually abused Ms. Carroll” they ruled “yes.”
There will most likely be an appeal.
The former President will appear on a televised town hall hosted by CNN later today.
