The Daily BeastTrump Fumes at Fauci, Believes He’s Auditioning for CNN GigIn the final two weeks of his re-election campaign, President Donald Trump has turned much of his attention to venting his anger and insecurities at one of his administration’s top public-health officials and coronavirus task force members, Dr. Anthony Fauci.In recent months, Trump has routinely gossiped with close associates and advisers that Fauci is behaving like a member of anti-MAGA “resistance” commentators. In the past few weeks, the president has told multiple people that he believes Fauci is angling to earn the media’s adulation and that it at times appears to him that the famous infectious disease expert is “audition[ing]” or “trying to get a job at CNN,” according to two sources with knowledge of his private comments.The result has been increasingly open bitterness from the president towards Fauci even as the pandemic has worsened across the country. President Trump has not indicated that he plans to fire Fauci, multiple individuals who’ve spoken to Trump about the doctor said, in large part because of the political and media backlash that would invariably ensue. And Fauci recently told The Daily Beast that he …

Why A Gamer Started A Web Of Disinformation Sites Aimed At Latino Americans

why a gamer started a web of disinformation sites aimed at latino americans

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

This article was written in collaboration with First Draft, a nonprofit organization that provides investigative research to newsrooms tracking and reporting on mis- and disinformation.
When we picture the entity behind a network of disinformation websites, a few archetypes spring to mind: shadowy figures intent on interfering with democracy, Russian agents, Macedonian teens. Not usually included: a gamer from a suburb of New York City who sells coffee beans with his wife at the local farmers market on weekends. But that’s precisely who was behind three sites that, until last week, were pumping out misleading, hyperpartisan Spanish-language content on both the left and right. They were just a few sites in a broader ecosystem of misinformation — and disinformation — that spreads such narratives to millions of Americans. But their story has something to tell us about the misinformation industrial complex overall.
Sean Reynolds, a YouTuber, gamer and entrepreneur, was the owner and operator of three websites and affiliated Facebook pages that peddled in misinformation, predominantly in Spanish. The existence of the network was first reported by Politico last week,1 but an exclusive interview with Reynolds revealed why he started the sites.
Namely, he said, he saw an opportunity.
“These websites …

Amazon’s cloud gaming service, Luna, is entering early access today, the company announced. A small number of US-based customers will receive invitations to test out the service and even purchase Amazon’s game controller if they so choose (though it’s not required to play games on Luna).
With early access, players will be able to access Luna, available across Fire TV, Mac, PC, and on web apps for iOS. An Android version is expected soon. Early access requires you to subscribe to the Luna Plus Game Channel, which comes with 50 games for $5.99 a month. A Ubisoft-specific channel is also expected to launch soon. You won’t have to purchase individual titles (Amazon isn’t offering full game purchases), and early access players get seven days of Luna Plus for free. But after that, Amazon will start billing you for its monthly subscription.
Amazon announced Luna in September, though the service has been rumored since last year. The company will continue to add more players in the months to come. “We are just getting started and need streamers and players of all kinds—core, casual, and first-time gamers—to provide feedback,” Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services vice president Marc …
