Artwork by Barbara Kruger for New York. News reports quoted experts who suggested the Russians merely wanted more information about Trump to inform their foreign-policy dealings. By that point, Russia was already broadcasting its strong preference for Trump through the media. Yet when news of the hacking broke, nobody raised the faintest suspicions that Russia wished to alter the outcome of the election, let alone that Trump or anybody connected with him might have been in cahoots with a foreign power. It was a third-rate cyberburglary. Nothing to see here.
Marine nude photo-sharing scandal prompts new social media policy
Instagram Allows Gay Torture Pictures By 'Occupy Pedophilia,' But Regularly Takes Down Nude Photos
Oh, Instagram, you've done it this time — or not done it, as the case may be. The group routinely kidnaps and tortures gay Russians — 1, of them in total, according to the alliance — and the Russian police force has largely turned a blind eye to their activities. On Twitter, Savage posted links to several Instagram accounts, photographs, and tapes that showed gay men being tortured by Occupy Pedophilia. The disturbing content had been publicly uploaded to Instagram months ago by the alliance, and the photo-sharing platform hasn't removed any of it. Even though Instagram bans nudity — a fact pointed out by Savage when he recalls that Instagram took down one of his photos that showed partially nude people on a beach — they apparently haven't sought to enforce that ban when it comes to nudity in homophobic torture.

That includes all manner of online crime, be it crooks stealing personal information for monetary gain, identity theft, or online radicalization and recruitment to terrorist networks. Phishing is how many serious cyberattacks begin. It was at the heart of the Celebgate nude-photo-theft scandal, for one. The consequences can be severe. There are so many cases where imposters have targeted kids by putting up fake photos, such as the guy who posed as Justin Bieber in order to trick kids into stripping in front of a webcam, or the year-old from New Jersey who posed as a teenager to stalk girls online.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, another actress exposed in the leak, immediately took to Twitter to denounce the images. To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves. Actress Victoria Justice insisted that her photos were fake while other stars such as Lena Dunham rebuked the privacy infringement on Twitter.
