The comments come in a devastating report on fake news by British Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, made up of cross-party UK politicians and led by Conservative MP Damian Collins.

Gunman who killed 5 coworkers in Aurora, Illinois, previously had his firearm permit revoked, but his gun wasn't taken away

Aurora Chicago shooting victims familiesAP Photo/Nam Y. Huh

AURORA, Ill. (AP) — An initial background check failed to detect a felony conviction that should have barred the man who killed five co-workers and wounded six other people at a suburban Chicago manufacturing plant from buying the gun.

Months later, a second background check of Gary Martin found his 1995 aggravated assault conviction in Mississippi involving the stabbing of an ex-girlfriend. But it prompted only a letter stating his gun permit had been revoked and ordering him to turn over his firearm to police — raising questions about the state's enforcement to ensure those who lose their permits also turn over their weapons.

7 details you may have missed on Sunday's 'The Walking Dead'

twd 910 alpha samantha mortonGene Page/AMC

Sunday's episode of "The Walking Dead" gave us an unexpected backstory to The Whisperer leading, Alpha (Samantha Morten). 

As her daughter, Lydia (Cassady McClincy) recounted her past to Henry and Daryl and the Whisperers made their way to the Hilltop, there were a few subtle nods to the comics, one connection to the "Breaking Bad" finale, and some heartbreaking moments from "TWD's" past.

Keep reading to see some smaller details you may have missed on Sunday's "The Walking Dead."

The start of the episode shows us its Day 23 into the zombie apocalypse.

AMC

For those keeping track, the start of season nine, episode 10 takes place at the same time as the season two premiere of "Fear The Walking Dead" when Strand and Madison's family take to the water on his yacht.

Of course, who's to say Alpha's "Day 23" is the same as Madison's "Day 23" on "Fear TWD."



Lydia's parents sing her "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady." This isn't the first AMC show where we've heard this song.

Gene Page/AMC, AMC

The song was also Todd's ringtone for his boss, and crush, Lydia, on the "Breaking Bad" finale. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) picks the phone up as it's ringing from Todd's dead corpse (seen above).



Daryl talks to Lydia about abusive fathers. He's speaking from experience.

Jackson Lee Davis/AMC

"Some dads come up with any excuse just to beat the s--- out of their kids. Maybe they're drunk, maybe they can't get drunk. Belts are good," Daryl tells Lydia.

Daryl's father was an abusive drunk who was introduced in 2013's "TWD" game, "Survival Instinct."

"The Walking Dead's" Greg Nicotero has been designing walkers for the AMC zombie drama for nearly a decade. With the entry of the show's latest threat, the Whisperers, Nicotero faced a new challenge — creating a stationary zombie face that still evokes the same emotion as a regular one. 

The group is notorious for wearing zombie skin over their faces as terrifying masks they sew up from the back. After years of waiting, Nicotero was really excited to finally get to bring these characters to the TV show.

THE DATA BREACHES REPORT: The strategies companies are using to protect their customers, and themselves, in the age of massive breaches

Over the past five years, the world has seen a seemingly unending series of high-profile data breaches, defined as incidents in which unauthorized parties access and retrieve sensitive, secure, or private data.

Major incidents, like the 2013 Yahoo breach, which impacted all 3 million of the tech giant’s customers, and the more recent Equifax breach, which exposed the information of at least 143 million US adults, has kept this risk, and these threats, at the forefront for both businesses and consumers. And businesses have good reason to be concerned — of organizations breached, 22% lost customers, 29% lost revenue, and 23% lost business opportunities.

Showrunner Angela Kang recently announced "The Walking Dead" was renewed for a 10th season earlier this month. But how much longer can the AMC zombie drama crawl on with more and more of its lead actors leaving the show?

"The Walking Dead's" return to TV has shown us more of the Whisperers and their leader's dark past, but viewers have also spent a lot of time with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). 

On the AMC show's mid-season premiere, the character known best for bashing in the heads of beloved characters Glenn and Abraham and who questionably held a harem full of women while he was the leader of a community, escaped from his prison cell to go on, what appeared to be, a journey of self-reflection.
