Facebook responded to Sunday’s damning “60 Minutes” segment, which featured former Facebook product manager Frances Haugen, who leaked documents to the Wall Street Journal. Haugen said in her interview with Scott Pelley, “The thing I saw at Facebook over and over again was there were conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook, and Facebook over and over again chose to optimize for its own interests, like making more money.” Not so, responded Lena Pietsch, Facebook’s Director of Policy Communications: “Hosting hateful or harmful content is bad for our community, bad for advertisers, and ultimately, bad for our business. Our incentive is to provide a safe, positive experience for the billions of people who use Facebook.”

But that didn’t end Facebook’s very bad day. In addition to a decline in the company’s stock price following the “60 Minutes” report, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger users experienced massive outages. “We are experiencing networking issues and teams are working as fast as possible to debug and restore as fast as possible,” tweeted Facebook CTO Mark Schroepfer over four hours after the outage began.

Ozy Media is not shutting down after all, according to founder/CEO Carlos Watson. While the company’s board announced on October 1 that it was closing amid a fraud investigation and reports of questionable business practices, Watson said Monday on “Today” that the decision to shutter operations was reconsidered over the weekend. “This is our Lazarus moment,” he told NBC’s Craig Melvin. “I think what we do with newsletters, what we do with TV shows, original TV shows, podcasts and more, I think has a place.”

The members of the International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees voted to give their union president the authorization to shutter film and TV production. The blessing comes as negotiations between the union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have stalled. “This vote is about the quality of life as well as the health and safety of those who work in the film and television industry,” said Matthew D. Loeb, IATS International President. “Our people have basic human needs like time for meal breaks, adequate sleep, and a weekend. For those at the bottom of the pay scale, they deserve nothing less than a living wage.” The vote passed with 98% in favor of the authorization, but Loeb said his hope is that the studios will return to the bargaining table; the AMPTP said it is “committed to reaching an agreement that will keep the industry working.”

The season six premiere of Showtime’s “Billions” has been set for Sunday, January 23 at 9p. Daniel Breaker (“Girls5Eva”) has been upped to series regular, while Damian Lewis will not return, at least for the time being, as Bobby Axelrod. London-based Lewis, who lost his wife, actress Helen McCrory, to cancer in April, told the New York Times he wants to remain close to home and his two teenage children. “A pleasure and a privilege to play Axe for 5 seasons with some of the smartest, funniest most talented cast and crew I’ve worked with,” tweeted Lewis the day after the finale aired. “I’ll miss the Billions family. Yep, some jobs are more than just a job.”

Howard University and Netflix announced a $5.4 million endowed scholarship to honor alumnus Chadwick A. Boseman. “While he was taken from us too soon, his spirit is with us always in his work and the good that he has inspired. He always spoke of his time at Howard and the positive way it shaped his life and career. Now, we will have the opportunity to give many future superheroes a chance to experience the same,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer.
