.@JoeBiden’s sad excuse for a spokesman, ⁦@tducklo46,⁩ has been suspended without pay for threatening to “destroy” a Politico journalist for reporting about his relationship. #BidensUnity #FreedomOfThePress…
A suspension, JoeBiden? Really? Golow and @neeratanden have much in common.

Joe’s representatives are bullies & thugs. But this is no surprise: that’s who they are at their core & that’s the people they support - as they stand atop their moral molehills sneering like Psaki
What a scumbucket.

“Ducklo reportedly tried to kill a story, which has since become public, about his relationship with Axios reporter Alexi McCammond, who used to cover Biden’s campaign.

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that the top brass is corrupt. When this happens, there is only the #Press--the real Press--that can sometimes raise-awareness. #Biden made deals on YOUR SELL OUR #USA SOVEREIGNTY!

#Wikileaks is a place for #whistleblowers.

#NationalSecurity must realize that the safety of the #USA has been compromised by security agencies' laziness & corruption!

#Wikileaks published the information that helped link #Biden, #China & a #FakeTradeDeal that kills our #USA SOVEREIGNTY! #NoCPTPP

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that our country cannot survive if we shift production to offshore sweatshops, hand our law-making processes to transnational, CEOs in #ISDS tribunals &/or censor our #FreedomofSpeech & #FreedomOfThePress.

1. 4 days ago,the @wikileaks staff informed me that Julian #Assange is freezing in Berlmarsh: he's currently in a cell whose temperature at night is 0°. As a journalist,my duty is to verify info and establish what is factually correct,hence I contacted the #UK Ministry of Justice
2. the UK ministry of Justice did NOT deny that Julian #Assange is freezing.They literally replied to me: "Our priority is to limit the spread of the virus and protect lives. All prisoners at #Belmarsh are able to exercise and request extra blankets"
3. I do NOT want to add anything else: I just want you look at facts and judge whether this treatment of a journalist is compatible with #freedomOfthePress and #HumanRights in a democracy

There are 400 plus TV news channels in India and several riddled with conflict of interests.

Here is a detailed report (by Pen International) of how #FreedomOfThePress has taken a hit.

India: Pursuing truth in the face of intolerance…

[Follow thread]
This September 2018 report focuses on the atrocities in India against independent and critical journalists, writers, and academics since 2014. India is languishing at #142 in the #WorldPressFreedomIndex 2020.
The report has essays by journalists Raksha Kumar and Nilanjana Roy, advocate Gautam Bhatia, and cultural critic Apoorvanand – discuss legal threats, pressures on editors, threats of violence, challenges to academic freedom, and the chilling effect all of this has had on writing.

@NC5PhilWilliams @997wtn @FOXNashville @JohnCooper4Nash @DonaldJTrumpJr @TuckerCarlson Phil, the fact u & @Tennessean think this is a "nonstory" serves only to fuel distrust further
@Fox17Ferrier wrote a balanced story & asked questions that folks had
OTHERs ::ahem, not tagged:: went off half-cocked & full-on partisan. This was neither helpful nor informative
@NC5PhilWilliams @997wtn @FOXNashville @JohnCooper4Nash @DonaldJTrumpJr @TuckerCarlson @Tennessean @Fox17Ferrier When the story broke, my anger wasnt at Coop, it was at Tennessean & you. #FreedomOfThePress only works when Media is not willing to bastardize #1A for narratives. The FACT is, local media sells the govt approved narrative. Coop supposedly reported the LOW #s on July 2nd - BUT
@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.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul to deliver a lecture on "Freedom of Speech in times of COVID-19 - Fake News and Misinformation" for the online lecture series organized by the Madras Bar Association (MBA)
Justice Kaul begins the lecture, says the challenges of this time are different especially with the expansion of technology which has brought with it the problem of fake news and misinformation at a time when people are unable to touch base with each other.

Justice Kaul: Constitution provides for a limited restriction on Freedom of Speech.

Freedom of Speech gives an avenue to express oneself which is bit physical in manner.

It also gives a checking value system which gives power to check those in power

This piece from 2011 by Jay Rosen is really interesting in light of attitude of many punter to many News Corp journos losing job yesterday.

I see many journalists blaming punters or treating them with disdain for not supporting them, maybe look at why?…
We really do need journalists. The average person doesn't have same access to find out what Government is doing.

Journalists need support of people when under siege from a government that does not want any accountability or transparency and makes their job impossible to do.
Yelling at punters for not supporting them or not caring about their #RightToKnow or #FreedomOfThePress campaigns just increases the amount of people who have disdain for the profession and worse, increases the lack of trust.

As a former RCMP @rcmpgrcpolice, I can see no justification for the conduct of and action taken by the principal officer during this video.

Simply said, at no time were you advised that you were committing an offence,and without being placed under arrest, you were nonetheless
physically subdued and I would argue, detained. Plainly, you didn't appear to be free to not accompany the officer. This raises important questions about your detention.

In my view and based on my experience, these actions - which appear 'as capricious' - were governed more
by impulse than necessity or reason. Of course, a properly-conducted investigation would examine these issues and could make findings related to their reasonableness commensurate with the totality of the cirucmstances. I believe, there is also a likelihood that other findings

This is #HowFakeNewsWorks:
* Make an accusation without basis
* Build a narrative around the accusation- With assumption of truth
* Make a definitive statement based on narrative
* Repeat statement as fact
Here is the #AssumptionAccusation by @RepSwalwell: "if you step back and ask why did the president direct Michael Cohen to lie, IF THAT'S WHAT HE DID, it’s to cover up a relationship that he had with Russia that is still ongoing today."
Here's the narrative on the #AssumptionAccusation: "That’s evidence of collusion There’s an entanglement with a country that is not our friend. I think some of the best evidence, if there’s a quid-pro-quo, the quo really started to heat up after the Helsinki conference, right?"

Ten months into his Presidency, Obama's administration declared war with @FoxNews and @NYMag wasn't worried about free press, they were concerned that people would start donating to @GOP and that the war legitimized Fox.
All this talk about #Mueller seems like a fun time to mention Greg Craig (Sadden) was Obama's top White House lawyer while his wife, Anita Dunn was Communications Director. After Craig was forced out, Bob Bauer (Perkins Coie) took over.
Small world huh?…
Craig was former Clinton insider, gave up all his precious connections to undermine HRC (as did Susan Rice) then suffered "death from a thousand leaks" which reminded @maureendowd of what Clintons did to Kimba Wood.
So incestuous!!…
