    Spotify has responded to criticism leveled against its star podcaster - anti-vaxxer Joe Rogan - and now says it will add 'content advisories' to Covid-related episodes. The streaming giant shared its new 'platform rules and approach' Sunday, hours after it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared 'concerns' over pandemic-related misinformation.  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - who inked a $25 million deal with Spotify - said they have reached out to the music streaming giants to 'express our concerns' about Rogan's podcast. The couple shared their objections as Spotify faced an exodus of talent including Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Bruce Springsteen guitarist Nils Lofgren.  Podcaster Brené Brown said she is 'pausing' her channel and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl is also rumored to be leaving the platform. Spotify said the pressure it faced in recent weeks prompted it to reevaluate - and ultimately change - its policies.   'It's become clear to me that we have an obligation to do more to provide balance and access to widely-accepted information from the medical and scientific communities guiding us through this unprecedented...
    Jessica McGowan/Getty Images Officials in the Biden administration are reportedly becoming frustrated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for withholding data on the efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines. The agency published a study on Friday that looked at the efficacy of the vaccines through April — before Covid-19’s delta variant became the dominant strain in the United States. Imperial College London released a study the same week that found vaccines had become less effective against symptomatic infections of the delta variant, while Public Health England published a study that found vaccinated patients with the delta variant may be as contagious as their unvaccinated counterparts. “That’s where the tension is, like ‘Where the hell are the data?'” a source familiar with the situation said in a comment to Axios. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has faced criticism from her colleagues and from other officials in the Biden administration after numerous missteps since she began leading the agency. When Walensky suggested in February that schools could “safely reopen” if teachers were fully vaccinated, White House press secretary Jen Psaki contradicted her...

    FBI agents recruited a Proud Boys leader to provide information about antifa networks months before he was charged with storming the U.S. Capitol alongside other members of the far-right extremist group, a defense attorney said. Proud Boys 'thought leader' and organizer Joseph Biggs agreed to provide the FBI with information about anti-fascist activists in Florida and elsewhere after an agent contacted him in late July 2020 and arranged to meet at a restaurant, Biggs' lawyer, J. Daniel Hull, wrote Monday in a court filing. The two agents who met with Biggs wanted to know what he was 'seeing on the ground,' Hull said. Over the next few weeks, Biggs answered an agent's questions in a series of phone calls. 'They spoke often,' said Hull, who is petitioning a judge to keep Biggs out of jail pending trial. Biggs, 37, of Ormond Beach, Florida, and three other Proud Boys leaders were indicted March 10 on charges they planned and carried out a coordinated attack on the Capitol on January 6 to stop Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's electoral victory.  Proud...

    Millions of WhatsApp users have taken the drastic step of abandoning the app ahead of a privacy policy update that will force them to share their data with Facebook.  The update, which will be released on February 8, affects WhatsApp users in all countries outside of Europe and the UK, where data protection laws are stricter. Users in these regions will be required to give their consent for Facebook to access their data, including their phone numbers and information about how they interact with others, in order to continue using the app. The requirement will apply regardless of whether or not the WhatsApp user has a Facebook account.

    Hong Kong (CNN Business)For years, the Great Firewall of China has blocked some of the largest online services coming out of the United States, including Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR). This month, Washington indicated that it might be willing to build a wall of its own by threatening a ban on two of the most popular Chinese-owned apps in the world: TikTok and WeChat.US President Donald Trump has given the apps 45 days to find American buyers, according to a pair of executive orders he issued last week. Trump claimed the apps pose risks to national security, citing concerns about data privacy and censorship. How Trumps war on WeChat could upend the global tech industryByteDance's TikTok has already been courted by Microsoft (MSFT), which would make it possible for the app to avert a total ban — albeit at the cost of its Chinese ownership. Tencent's WeChat, though, is far less popular in the US than it is at home, and its use stateside could be significantly curtailed. Because Trump's order is vague, some analysts also suspect a...
