Ex-Trump Tower Doorman Reveals President’s Alleged New Affair, Love Child

A former Trump World Tower doorman has said that he knows of an alleged affair between President Donald Trump and a former housekeeper which resulted in a child out of wedlock, according to his attorney.

On Friday, Marc Held — the attorney for Dino Sajudin, the former doorman — said his client had been released from a contract that he entered with American Media Inc that had prohibited him from discussing the matter with anyone, “recently” after back-and-forth discussions with AMI

The contract appears to have been signed on November 15, 2015, and states that AMI has exclusive rights to Mr Sajudin’s story but does not mention the details of the story itself beyond saying, “Source shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump”s illegitimate child…”

The contract states that “AMI will not owe source any compensation if AMI does not publish the exclusive…” and the top of the agreement shows that Sajudin could receive a sum of $30,000 “payable upon publication as set forth below”.

But the third page of the agreement shows that about a month later, the parties signed an amendment that states that Mr Sajudin would be paid $30,000 within five days of receiving the amendment.

It says the “exclusivity period” laid out in the agreement “is extended in perpetuity and shall not expire”.

The amendment also establishes a $1 million payment that Mr Sajudin would be responsible for making to AMI “in the event source breaches this provision”.

“Sajudin has been unable to discuss the circumstances regarding his deal with American Media Inc. and the story that he sold to them, due to a significant financial penalty,”

“Just recently, AMI released Sajudin from the terms of his agreement and he is now able to speak about his personal experience with them, as well as his story, which is now known to be one of the ”catch and kill” pieces. Sajudin hopes the truth will come out in the very near future.”

In April, Mr Sajudin  claims to have knowledge of a relationship Donald Trump had with his former housekeeper that resulted in a child.

At the time, AMI called Mr Sajudin’s story “not credible” and denied any connection between the story and Trump and his former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Facebook begins rating users on how trustworthy they are at flagging fake news!

Facebook has started rating its users’ trustworthiness in order to help the social network know how much to value user reports that a certain news story might be fake. . The system certainly sounds a touch dystopian, but Facebook sees it as a valuable tool for weeding out disinformation.

The trust ratings went into place over the last year, and were developed as part of Facebook’s fight against fake and malicious stories. Facebook relies, in part, on reports from users to help catch these stories. If enough people report a story as false, someone on a fact-checking team will look into it. But checking every story that racks up “fake news” reports would be overwhelming, so Facebook uses other information to figure out what it should and shouldn’t bother looking into.

One of those is this trust rating. Facebook didn’t tell the Post everything that went into the score, but it is partly related to a user’s track record with reporting stories as false. If someone regularly reports stories as false, and a fact-checking team later finds them to be false, their trust score will go up; if a person regularly reports stories as false that later are found to be true, it’ll go down.

In that sense, this may be less of a “trust” score and more of a “fact-check” score, and the name isn’t likely to do it any favors. Algorithms are often flawed and can have larger, deleterious effects that aren’t immediately visible, so Facebook will have to be careful about what other information it factors in and how else this score is used, lest it accidentally discount reports from a specific community of people.

War On Fake News: Wikipedia Founder To Launch Site To Tackle Fake News.

Jimmy Wales, the founder of online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, has launched a website aimed at countering the spread of fake news by bringing together professional journalists and a community of volunteers and supporters to produce news articles. The new platform, called Wiki tribune, will be free to access and carry no advertising, instead relying on its readers to fund it, while the accuracy of news reports will be easily verifiable as the source material will be published, Wales said.

“The news is broken, but we’ve figured out how to fix it,” he said in a promotional video posted on the website’s homepage. The online proliferation of fake news, some of it generated for profit and some for political ends became a major topic of angst and debate in many developed countries during last year’s U.S. presidential election. Wales argued in his video that because people expected to get news for free on the Internet, news sites were reliant on advertising money, which created strong incentives to generate so-called “clickbait”, catchy headlines to attract viewers.

“This is a problem because ads are cheap, competition for clicks is fierce and low-quality news sources are everywhere,” said Wales. He also argued that social media networks, where an ever-increasing number of people get their news, were designed to show users what they wanted to see, confirm their biases and keep them clicking at all costs. Social media giant Facebook was widely criticised last year for not doing enough to prevent fake news reports from spreading on its platform and has announced new tools to tackle the problem.

Wales said Wiki tribune would combine professional, standards-based journalism with what he called “the radical idea from the world of wiki that a community of volunteers can and will reliably protect the integrity of information”. He said articles would be authored, fact-checked and verified by journalists and volunteers working together, while anyone would be able to flag up issues and submit fixes for review. “As the facts are updated, the news becomes a living, evolving artifact, which is what the Internet was made for,” he said. The Wiki tribune homepage said the platform would go live in 29 days. It also indicated that the intention was to hire 10 journalists, but none had been hired so far.

Calm down folks! Not everything you see on the Internet is true.

What a wonderful place an Internet for us. It provides us information that was not at all possible earlier and then the time came when it becomes easier for media websites to upload fake news in it. And when the era is click baiting then who cares about the authenticity of the sources, right? Because click-baiting is more important now than the actual news itself, generating clicks matters not news.

Recently Scoopwhoop.com post an article on Manipal University and how they released a letter to urging the student to not ‘Masturbate’ in the bathroom of the campus as it ‘clogs the shower drains’. Though the image looks fake and there are dozens of ‘Masturbatory Letters by College Administration Urging Students to Masturbate on Dorm Room’ you can found on the Internet. The website still published an article on it.

Take a look:

Not long ago, fake pictures of Saif Ali Khan And Kareena Kapoor baby Taimur Ali Khan fake pictures went viral on the Internet. The most trusted Bollywood website and news channel Zoom made a big blunder about it. They were the first one who tweeted the fake picture on twitter. Being a website solely dedicated to Bollywood, they would have looked the images twice and should have confirmed its authenticity.

Also, the case which comes in mind is Sudhir Chaudhary infamous ‘Nano Chips’ news, from his show ‘DNA’. The editor went on talking about How new 500 and 2000 rupees will have ‘Nano Chips’ installed with them. Though, we all know by now the new notes didn’t have any of those new features in it.

And who can forget how much Times now supported Jasleen Kaur in Jasleen Kaur Vs Sarvjeet Singh case? Without knowing the actual story then Times Now Editor In Chief Arnab Goswami used words like Pervert and Filthy for Sarvjeet and refused to apologise later for his remarks too. And, also take a look at this video.

This all incidents taught us one thing that in this era it’s much more important to win the race rather than making some efforts about the news.
