Good afternoon from Aurora, CO where Beto O’Rourke will soon be holding a town hall after spending the morning in Oakland.

A flight delay means this event will start just a little late
Well former governor of Maryland and presidential candidate Martin O’Malley just showed up to open for @BetoORourke

He’s done some stumping for Beto O’Rourke in previous weeks.
“Almost every police commissioner of every major city in America was there, begging, our Congress, not to allow the United States of America to be the only country in the developed world that allowed people to buy combat assault weapons but here we are” - @MartinOMalley

This was performed during our rally in #Düsseldorf on August 10 in front of the US consulate.
The starting point of this performance is Plato’s Allegory of the Cave which I adapted to #JulianAssange ‘s and #ChelseaManning ‘s ongoing persecution.
As a reminder: the Allegory relates the story of a group of prisoners who spend their lives chained, unable to turn their head around. There is a fire and people behind them who are holding figures and objects which cast shadows on a wall in front the prisoners.
During their whole live, these prisoners will never ever see the fire or the figures and objects themselves.
They also hear echoes of conversation and sounds but never a true voice or word. That’s what shapes their perception of the world.

"The Epoch Times seeks to restore honest journalism, the purpose of a free press."

Wall Street Journal @WSJ publishes op-ed by @EpochTimes publisher Stephen Gregory in response to misleading @NBCNews and @MSNBC attacks. (Thread 👇) wsj.com/articles/nbc-n…
@WSJ @NBCNews @MSNBC The #EpochTimes is a nonpartisan, independent media company that publishes a daily newspaper and website. Our motto is “Truth and Tradition.”

Last week #NBCNews and its sister network #MSNBC launched a series of irresponsible and misleading attacks on us.
The network led with the claim that we have spent “more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself” in the past 6 months on “pro-Trump advertisements.”

NBC refers to ads promoting our print subscriptions—typically short, lively videos featuring recent articles.

A list of all 27.25* stories about @BernieSanders proposal on #Journalism in @CJR published between 8/26 and (a shameful) 4am, 08/28/19

My Booleans:
Search 1:
Bernie Sanders AND "plan" AND "newspapers" OR "media" OR "press"

Search 2:
Bernie Save Media
I did this because I wanted to see where exactly the proposal was covered given who it implicated and for an industry clamoring for solutions, I wanted to see what folks had to say. Surely everyone would chime in, yes...

No...
I chose stories w/ headlines dedicated to the proposal. Find the links here, organized from Big outlets to random local news/blogs/sites, but I will thread them here. Please share any others you find so I can update one-tab.com/page/RB08qyiQT…

Dear readers,

As you know, The Epoch Times is a proudly independent news organization dedicated to truthful reporting.

Thanks to your support, we are now America’s fastest-growing newspaper. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/why-nbc-msnbcs…
It appears, however, that not everyone is thrilled with our growth and our dedication to restoring honest journalism.

@NBCNews & @MSNBC dedicated a good amount of their time attempting to discredit us.

We were surprised at witnessing what appears to be a new low…
…that media are willing to drop to in an effort to quash voices they don’t agree with.

@MSNBC host Rachel @Maddow, known for her biased coverage of the Trump admin and for getting the Trump–Russia collusion story wrong, dedicated 30 minutes of prime-time television to us.

On Aug 20 @MSNBC’s Rachel #Maddow did a half-hour segment attacking The Epoch Times based on an NBC news “investigative report” from earlier that day. (Thread 👇)
The crux of #Maddow's attack is an attempt to conflate programming of the NTD digital show Edge of Wonder, an entertainment show that explicitly focuses on the most audacious conspiracy theories out there, with #EpochTimes journalism.
We explained the fact that Edge of Wonder is an entertainment show not connected with #EpochTimes to the relevant #NBC journalists in a Jun 20 statement. They chose to ignore this.

As it's #WorldPhotographyDay let's look back at the 1930s magazine that was a trailblazer for modern photo-led #journalism: VU.
First published in Paris in 1928 VU was a magazine that put the photograph first. Over 3,000 photos were used in its first year of publication alone.
The timing was auspicious: the Leica 1 camera had been released in 1925 and the Rolleiflex would launch in 1929. High quality portable photography was making its breakthrough and VU magazine would pioneer it's journalistic use.

A thread about #journalism and #infosec/#cybersecurity.

I hear ALL the time from executives who read about infosec issues in the news and want to know more. Journalists are the most important part of the education and information component of #cybersecurity.
I consider journalists part of #infosec - not outside of it. They serve their purpose like a Firewall admin serves theirs for the larger #cybersecurity space. I've never met a malicious journalist, not saying they're out there but, almost all have good intentions.
Most journalists have a non-technical background. This is changing but it is still the case. Just like many of #infosec who came from a non-traditional background and joined our space we need to be supportive and mentor them.

@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow But Aaron, there is a price to pay for pushing fiction, rather than facts: And that is that most of these (fake-) news outlets lost all or at least a lot of credibility and what is #journalism without credibilty?
#TrumpRussia
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 2. I recall a time when #CNN was "first for breaking news", the go-to channel when big news broke (from the passing of Princess Diana to 9/11), since #Election2016 many rightly called it "The Clinton News Network" & I hardly tune in.
#TrumpRussia #Media
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 3. Many great papers made the same mistake: The #NewYorkTimes, with 127 Pulitzer Prizes, suddenly allowed opinion pieces to be written by conspiracy nut #LouiseMensch. You can damage your good reputation with just one lousy piece.
The #NYT:Not completely fallen yet, but weakened!

All power & strength to @hugorifkind doing thankless work in the trenches of the Times comment threads. He's one of v. few UK journalists outside @guardian who has grappled with this subject & brought it to wider audience. Thank you, Hugo. 🙏
@hugorifkind @guardian This is the @hugorifkind piece that set the haters off. About Netflix's upcoming #TheGreatHack. Paywalled, sadly. But here's the headline...
thetimes.co.uk/article/netfli…
@hugorifkind @guardian "Soon Carol Cadwallader will be living in a cardboard box while the brexit Party pay for adverts on Facebook with the proceeds of Aaron Bank's libel case. Good times ahead."

‼️ BREAKING:
Last week, @EpochTimes was contacted by two NBC reporters who posed a series of highly inappropriate questions about the religious beliefs of our staff.

Here is our open letter response. theepochtimes.com/our-response-t…
The NBC reporters questioned the religious beliefs of some of our @EpochTimes staff members, sought to discredit their beliefs, attacked our journalism based on personal opinion rather than objective analysis, and even sought out information on the personal lives of our staff.
Unfortunately, the bane of #Journalism today is the all-too-common practice of writing news to conform to a pre-existing narrative or agenda. The best journalism of the past had the truth as its standard, not political advantage.

1/ #Assange l'avait prédit pendant qu'on le calomniait et qu'on le maltraitait. Il disait que le monde changeait et que les soi-disant démocraties libérales devenaient des #autocraties. Une #démocratie qui envoie sa #police contre les journalistes et emporte leurs notes et
2/ leurs disques durs simplement parce que ces journalistes ont révélé ce que les gouvernements ne veulent pas que les gens sachent n'est pas une #démocratie.
3/ le #harcèlement d'Assange et l'#intimidation d'autres personnes tournent en dérision le Premier amendement de la #Constitution des États-Unis, qui dit que vous avez le #droit de publier ; vous avez le droit de "#publier et d'être damné".

This part of the piece looks at the experiences of Hadji Mohamed, who is an Imam. We reported on him yesterday. He lives in #HomefrayStreet in #Cardiff when the rioters came to his house. He clambered up a drainpipe.

We have a First Amendment for a reason, and it doesn't say unless it's embarrassing to the U.S. government, unless Hillary Clinton doesn't like it, unless it makes it difficult for the State Department to play the games it plays. soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #Assange #EspionageAct
The point is we are government of the people, by the people, for the people. It's not their information. It's ours. And all #Assange did was give us our information which our own government was wrongly and illegally concealing from us. soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #EspionageAct

BREAKING: #WikiLeaks co-founder #JulianAssange faces new charges under the infamous Espionage Act — which was used to imprison Daniel Ellsberg, Emma Goldman, and Socialist Presidential Candidate Eugene Debs. gregpalast.com/wikileaks-juli…
#Assange is not a spy — they sell secrets and keep secrets — he exposed truths the U.S. government concealed from We the People. And where are the NY Times and Amazon Post? They should turn in the prizes they got for Assange’s courage and work. gregpalast.com/wikileaks-juli…

Gawker lost legally, but it had a dramatic impact on today’s media environment and in some sense won culturally. It was a precursor to a certain style of woke Brooklyn journalism, which was later inflated by capital markets and now feels derivative (eg Daily Beast). /1
Gawker also presaged a certain style of anti-establishment journalism, which migrated to the populist right and morphed into insurgent citizen-journalism. @Cernovich in 2014-2017 could be seen as a descendent. For all its faults, Gawker’s chip on the shoulder seemed genuine. /2
There’s more to say on these thing (including the later Vekselberg investment which may have been a precursor to Russian meddling?). Only mentioning this because I haven’t seen Gawker’s influence acknowledged in #media #journalism & it may help us understand today’s media realm.

#Breaking #news @vicenews reporter @elspethreeve along with a film crew have broken into The house of #8chan's creator.

REAL #Journalism IS DEAD

Were they searching for #qanon's identity?

@POTUS @BreitbartNews
@Cordicon @JackPosobiec
Correction, they broke into the "current owner's" of 8Chan.
The "creator" was Frederick Brennan.

This is Fredrick Brennan's wikipedia
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fredrick_…
@prayingmedic check this out.
I believe it has to do with evil Cher's post.

@cher and others
You CANNOT stop why is coming.
