New Delhi: Senior journalists took to Twitter to call Kejriwal’s bluff as the Delhi Chief Minister lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling him a “coward and psychopath” following the alleged CBI raid ‘in his office’ over corruption charges against his secretary.

Targeting secretary Rajendra Kumar, CBI officials swooped on Kejriwal’s office at the Delhi Secretariat over a 2002 corruption case, triggering a string of angry responses from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader who took office in February 2015, seizing Rs 2.4 lakh and documents related to three immovable properties from Kumar’s official residence.

While Finance Minister Arun Jaitley denied CBI raided Kejriwal saying the target was the officer who was attached to his office, the AAP called this a lie.

Before long the senior journalists took to social media exposing Kejriwal’s bluff over ‘politicizing’ the issue.

With midterm elections in the US and general elections in several other countries knocking at the door, Facebook has rolled out a new tool that makes it easier for researchers and journalists to scrutinise Facebook ads related to politics or issues of national importance.

“We’re making advertising more transparent to help prevent abuse on Facebook, especially during elections,” Rob Leathern, Facebook’s Director of Product Management said in a statement on Wednesday.

Facebook said its new tool, Ad Archive API, would initially be available to a group of publishers, academics and researchers in the US before opening it up more broadly.

“Input from this group will also form the basis of an Archive report that will be available starting in September,” Leathern said.

The API offers ad creative, start and end date, and performance data, including total spend and impressions for ads.

It also shows demographics of people reached, including age, gender and location.

“We’re greatly encouraged by trends and insights that watchdog groups, publishers and academics have unearthed since the archive launched in May. We believe this deeper analysis will increase accountability for both Facebook and advertisers,” Leathern said. (IANS)
