Over 120,000 views of a video showing a boy being sexually assaulted. A recommendation engine suggesting that a user follow content related to exploited children. Users continually posting abusive material, delays in taking it down when it is detected and friction with organizations that police it. All since Elon Musk declared that “removing child exploitation is priority #1” in a tweet in late November. Under Mr. Musk’s ownership, Twitter’s head of safety, Ella Irwin, said she had been moving rapidly to combat child sexual abuse material, which was prevalent on the site — as it is on most tech platforms — under the previous owners. “Twitter 2.0” will be different, the company promised. But a review by The New York Times found that the imagery, commonly known as child pornography, persisted on the platform, including widely circulated material that the authorities consider the easiest to detect and eliminate. After Mr. Musk took the reins in late October, … [Read more...] about Musk Pledged to Cleanse Twitter of Child Abuse Content. It’s Been Rough Going.

William H. Rehnquist, who died Saturday at the age of 80 almost a year after learning he had thyroid cancer, helped lead a conservative revolution on the Supreme Court during 19 notably successful years as chief justice of the United States. Including 14 years as an associate justice, Chief Justice Rehnquist's tenure on the court was not only one of the longest in the institution's history but also one of the most consequential.

But the study adds another factor: To get a clerkship, it really helps to have gone to college at Harvard, Yale or Princeton. Albert Yoon , a law professor at the University of Toronto and one of the study’s authors, said the finding was disturbing. “We don’t really live in a meritocracy,” he said. “The Supreme Court is guilty of perpetuating … [Read more...] about The Road to a Supreme Court Clerkship Starts at Three Ivy League Colleges
