Commerce Department Eyeing $1.7 Billion Fine Against ZTE

ZTE may have to agree to a heavy fine and sweeping management changes if it wants to resume operations. The Trump administration is prepared to levy up to $1.7 billion in fines against the company to punish it for violating the terms of an earlier settlement. Further, the Commerce Department wants “unfettered site visits” to ensure that ZTE is using U.S. parts as intended. The company may also be required to bring in a wholly new management team. In April, the Commerce Department banned ZTE from using U.S. parts and software for its devices, effectively putting ZTE out of business. The company ceased major operations in May. Sources cited by Reuters indicate that final terms of the settlement are not set and may change. Despite the Trump administration’s work to get ZTE back in business, some senators believe ZTE represents a security threat and deserved the punishment. They are working to keep the ban in place.

Facebook to Nix Trending Stories from Site

Facebook today said it plans to remove the Trending section from its service. The original intent behind Trending was “to help people discover news topics that were popular across the Facebook community.” Facebook found, however, that the service accounted for only a small percentage of clicks to news publishers. In addition to removing the section from Facebook, the social network plans to remove related products and integrations that rely on the Trends API. In the meantime, Facebook is exploring other ways to surface fresh news content. The company is testing a “breaking news” label with 80 publishers in several counties, as well as a dedicated “today” section that will highlight local content and information from official government sources. Facebook says it also plans to debut a “news video” section where it will display live coverage, daily news briefings, and other fresh video content. Trending will vanish from Facebook next week. These other tools will be filtered in once Facebook finalizes them.
