Been following the #UA328 saga today. So glad everything’s okay and pax are safe. HOWEVER!!! I need to vent about how the TV news media is incredibly aviation illiterate.
It’s a long-running joke in #AVGeek circles that when TV news covers anything airplane-related, they’re wrong on the facts and terminology 99% of the time.
Examples of common TV News aviation-related inaccuracies include:

-Using the wrong B-roll with airplane types in question
-Confusing Airbus and Boeing in name and imagery
-Using the terms apron, taxiway, stand, and runway interchangeably
…and so much more…

We know suppression is real. We know that our #1A rights have no impact upon social media when they deem then "dangerous." So, what do we do?
2) One thing is, join up at CloutHub. I'm working diligently to learn that new platform's capabilities. If it has a single greatest value, I believe that censorship is not its objective. Should I learn I'm wrong, I'll drop it like it's hot.
3) Yet I keep mentioning Gene Sharp's principle:

Oppression may be probed.

Actually, anything can be probed. The greatest probers we know of were the 9/11 terrorists who probed every aspect of our legal and flight security systems. They knew how to probe.

Dear liberals:

You spent 4 years showing us that we don't have to respect our sitting President (or even the office of President). According to you, name-calling, protests, and burning effigies is acceptable. We've watched you vilify our First Lady, our VP, our Second Lady

1/11
and anyone even remotely associated with Trump. You deemed it acceptable to corner and mock Republicans in public places, attack conservatives, and disparage anyone who might not participate in your groupthink - no matter how outrageous. Our concerns about military fitness

2/11
were deemed transphobic. Our concerns about our terrorism were called xenophobic. Our concern about waves of illegal immigration was called white supremacy. Our concern about abortion being used as birth control was called misogynistic. Our concerns about increasing taxes

Apparently, David Horowitz -- a shill and longtime friend of the execrable Tanton network -- is hostile to a free press and free speech. Ironic, considering he and his legal buddies used to trawl colleges looking for free speech lawsuits to file on behalf of right-wing students.
Background here, in this 1993 story. Horowitz represented himself as only being concerned about #1A, but his actions toward Jean here put the lie to that.

At the root, the #CapitolRiot seems to stem from misinformation and lies. Confidently repeat a lie often enough (as Trump and the @GOP have), and people will believe it.

Sprinkle in heavy doses of fear-mongering and voila—radicalization!

(Thread—could this help stop fascism?)
De-radicalization on a mass scale seems like a hefty job... one that won't be easy. We haven't seen the last of the violence, and in fact I fear this may be just the beginning (Trump himself has said it is).

We must take action ASAP in order to minimize it as much as possible.
I've been reading up on the Fairness Doctrine. Introduced in 1949, it was completely gone by 2011.

Two main points: It required broadcasters to devote airtime to controversial issues, and to air contrasting views on those issues.

THREAD: As I've done the last two years on NYE, here's w/my list of a few on-air reporters I either like, respect, admire, appreciate, and/or find to be good people even if I disagree and we frequently slam them at @NewsBusters. They might be genuinely bad but they've....
...fooled me? For as scorched earth as I can get, please know I believe in the concept of a robust media & an empowered citizenry BOTH enjoying #1A as they're two puzzle pieces to this great country. If you're on the list, I still still think you're biased, but I like you!
This list only covers straight reporters from papers, TV networks, or websites. I did leave out my fellow conservative media pals. In other words, no commentators, columnists, or pundits. I also left out local reporters as I'd be here forever and I generally like them more 😂

I kinda think it's hillarious that @_SecondThought was intimidated by @DHSgov and shadowbanned by @YouTube re: criticism of the @CIA.

For all the wrong reasons...
[a thread]
For once, it's a chilling effect for anyone, espechally de-facto members of the #press [since @_SecondThought does #journalism, be is part of it] to intimidate them by a govt. agency like @DHSgov.

Not to mention that their accusation, "anti-americanism", is not a crime.
In any reasonable justice system, #NullaPeneSineLege applies, which means the government cannot do anything about something that isn't explicitly outlawed.

And last time I checked voicing criticism of politicans was not, @DHSgov!

THREAD: So @vox writer @seanilling just said that ppl like me worry too much about #freespeech b/c “speech has never been freer.” Bizarre assertion in 2020. Speech was probably freer in 2005 before the "democratic recession" began, but it was certainly freer in, say, 2015. (1/65)
It’s important to address this because there’s been a trend in “nothing to see here,” thinly sourced stories claiming that nobody should really worry about free speech, Cancel Culture, or any of these themes. (2/65)
So, where to begin?

First, I'll start with the global picture, but don't worry, I'll get to my specialty, censorship in US higher education, later in this thread.

Bottomline: The situation for global #freespeech has gotten worse this year & over the past several years (3/65)

"There's not a precedent? SO let's SET a HISTORICAL ONE."

I WANT TO SUE CON-gress, the 535 individual Reps, current State tyrannical Governments who charge a State Tax for "taxation without Representation."

Show us the way, Millions will join.
In ADDITION, it can be PROVEN CON-gress gave protections to Big Tech thru Sec230, have repeatedly been shown evidence they've violated it thru live hearings, yet ALLOWED it to continue violating American's #1A ON PURPOSE.

ADD THIS👆TO THE LAWSUIT "PUNITIVE DAMAGES"~Fired!
I'll go on.

2013 Obama changed the Smith-Mundt Act "Arms of the Government State Media could disseminate propaganda inside the USA."
Allowing Big Media & Tech TO LIE and shirk the TRUTH without repercussions under the protections of #1A bc no one DARE challenge #1A re "Media."👇

Minneapolis: Protesters are holding space outside the remnants of the Third Precinct, demanding all felony & misdemeanor charges be dropped from the Nov 4 protests where >600 were mass-arrested on I-94.
“We will never stand down until systematic racial injustice is taken care of.”

Multiple speakers point out how protesters’ #1A constitutional rights were violated when the mass arrest halted their Nov 4 protest.
George Floyd and Breonna Taylor’s names are said aloud by the crowd.

1/ Recently, for @Genmag, I spent some time looking into the “right of the people peaceably to assemble,” one of the 5 liberties guaranteed by the #1A.
(Not the one Justice Barrett forgot...about petitioning for a redress of grievances. But related!)

2 / We’ve all seen the thousand or so videos collected by defense attorney @greg_doucette of police assaulting, gassing, and firing at and otherwise brutalizing protesters for doing nothing more than exercising that right.
3/ Some of those protesters were said to have committed a crime, the crime of “unlawful assembly.” But of course that is not a crime at all. Or it shouldn’t be, if you put any stock in the Constitution.

@NC5PhilWilliams @997wtn @FOXNashville @JohnCooper4Nash @DonaldJTrumpJr @TuckerCarlson @Tennessean @Fox17Ferrier Y'all chose to not really make that part of the public dialog. The @Tennessean's "health reporter" thinks he's the Lord & Master of information, standing guard over what the public can know (via his own tweets). @davidplazas pushed that "bars & entertainment" narrative hard.

Why is this an additive in the new vaccine? Luciferase is a generic term for the class of oxidative enzymes that produce bioluminescence, and is usually distinguished from a photoprotein. The name was first used by Raphaël Dubois who invented the words luciferin and luciferase...
for the substrate and enzyme, respectively. Both words are derived from the Latin word lucifer – meaning lightbearer.

A variety of organisms regulate their light production using different luciferases in a variety of light-emitting reactions. The majority of studied...
in luminous fungi, like the Jack-O-Lantern mushroom, as well as examples in other kingdoms including luminous bacteria, and dinoflagellates.

Why?....so “they” can see who has been vaccinated? Is it for control who can enter a business or who cannot?

2/We were both wearing credentials and clothing that said “Press.” We were not arrested. An officer inside the hotel said media are not mentioned as exempt from curfew.
3/ I told the officer, respectfully, that media are not mentioned as subject to curfew, and since there’s a #FirstAmendment and #FEMA deemed us essential workers, if they don’t mention it, we’re exempt. If they do mention, it would trigger litigation. #1A

BREAKING: Several voter advocates and watchdogs are suing #POTUS for retaliating against social media companies for fact-checking his lies about mail-in voting. @RockTheVote @CommonCause @votolatino @freepress @MapLight protectdemocracy.org/update/voter-a…
Social media co.’s have the right to call out #POTUS’s lies, including ones to misinform the public about our elections. Trump violated #1A by retaliating against those companies with his executive order from May. Our co-counsel @CooleyLLP & @EFF explain: protectdemocracy.org/resource-libra…
The American people have the right to receive info thru social media about voting alternatives. #POTUS violates that right by trying to bully social media companies into not moderating his content. Image

I wish we’d give up this fantasy about some new “Fairness doctrine.”
• It was created for political gain, and removed for the same reason.
• It never applied to cable.
• It could never be applied to the Internet.
• It was NOT responsible for conservative talk …
radio’s rise (syndication was).
• It was unenforced AND unenforceable most of the time.
• No one will ever agree on what a new doctrine would even look like.

We need new kinds of prohibitions on unfair broadcasting, not nostalgic for remedies that never existed.
Also, while just one opinion, a fairly high-level friend in the ACLU told me a few years ago that the ACLU once gamed-out a fight over a “new” fairness doctrine and doubted anything proposed would ever pass #1A tests today. Thus, even they would probably oppose it.

sheer stupidity that truly frightens.

@GovParsonMO @BluebirdsofMO @classEireland @EnglishTeach07 @jzikah @LottaFightLeft @PhyllisMarion7 Parson’s tweet makes it patently clear
Donald’s virus won’t soon disappear.
As Mike plays it both ways
many eyebrows we raise.
His mixed messages ring insincere.
We can vote #LIBERTY,
or vote death — we must #VOTE

You've heard of Clearview AI: they're the grifty facial recognition system with ties to violent white nationalist terrorists that scraped social media for training data and then covertly sold unsupervised access to cops, schools and businesses.

As the Clearview story dribbled out in the press, the company insisted that it was a responsible custodian of our faces and could be relied upon to wield power with prudence and caution.

Then its entire customer database leaked.

pluralistic.net/2020/02/28/plu…

The company's in legal trouble but it has deep pockets, thanks to the public monies it has trousered and the wealthy investors who showered it with capital - men like John Catsimatidis, owner of New York's Gristedes groceries.
