VERBATIM: A top EU Commission official says the ability of a new generation of AI chatbots to create complex content and visuals in seconds raises “fresh challenges for the fight against disinformation.” The 27-nation bloc has asked Google, Meta, Microsoft, TikTok and other tech companies that have signed up to the voluntary EU agreement on combating disinformation to dedicate efforts to tackling the AI problem. The official says companies should roll out technology to recognize AI-generated content and “clearly label this to users.”

Former VP Pence files paperwork launching 2024 presidential bid

Mon, Jun 5, 2023 at 1:52 pm

Former Vice President Mike Pence has filed paperwork declaring his campaign for president in 2024. Pence has spent months visiting early voting states, delivering policy speeches, speaking at churches, and courting donors. His entry into the 2024 race puts the former vice president in direct competition with his former boss. Pence is an Indiana native, but is launching his campaign in Iowa — the leadoff caucus state in the presidential primary. Advisers say he plans to campaign aggressively in the state, hitting every one of its 99 counties before the caucuses next year.

Three Israeli soliders killed in gun battle with Egyptian police officer

Sun, Jun 4, 2023 at 6:15 pm

Israel’s military says a gunbattle involving an Egyptian police officer in southern Israel along the Egyptian border has left three soldiers dead

It was a rare instance of deadly violence along the frontier. The army said Saturday that the officer was in Israeli territory when he killed two soldiers during a drug-smuggling attempt. Their bodies were found hours later. The army said the attacker was killed in another shootout in which a third solider was also killed. Troops were searching for other possible assailants. The attacker infiltrated from Egypt. Israel and Egypt signed a peace agreement in 1979 and maintain close security ties. Fighting along their shared border is rare.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

Another religious freedom battle — this one in Minnesota

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is taking the state to court, stating that the new restriction is “not only patently anti-religious; it is also against the law.” Michael Harrington, SRN News.
