Just like the case against the awe-worthy @sharmasupriya for her reporting in #Varanasi, here's a list of FIRs filed against #journalists in #UttarPradesh in the last year. Fasten your seatbelts, it will not be a short #Thread
#PressFreedom #lockdown2020 1/n
In March, at the height of the #lcokdown, @thewire_in's @svaradarajan was delivered a legal notice by police from Ayodhya. A quote in an article was wrongly attributed UP the Chief Minister, which was retracted and a corrigendum issued.
On 26 March, DM of #Varanasi sent a legal notice to Hindi daily Jansandesh Times claiming their report about tribal children eating grass for want of food due to the sudden announcement of the lockdown on March 24 was false. 3/n

Africa Is Not Waiting to Be Saved From the Coronavirus
If reporting doesn’t improve, the creativity and agency of swaths of humanity will be lost to history

We needed this article to be written for months. Thank you @Nanjala1-I share some of ur pearls 🧵
thenation.com/article/world/…
"As #Covid19 races its way across #Africa, there are 2 stories happening at once. 1st t is of governments using their armies and militarized police to beat, threaten, and shoot their way to #publichealth."
"2nd is of communities knitting together their meager resources to fill..
"the gap of absent states...of tailors across informal settlements in Nairobi & Mombasa sewing face masks out of scrap fabric & handing them out for free after price gouging by commercial suppliers."

#COVID19 IS not a "#China not China" thing.
FACTS:
#BillGates & #FAUCI #BIRX #CDC #NIH FUNDED #Wuhan's #WHO accredited BSL4 Lab to do this work, AND planted staff 1 of who is now #Fakebook #Science Director banning ppl for mentioning Wuhan made or even Vitamin C.
China complicit

At the same time the above CORRUPT cabal was doing this virus work, #BillGates ALSO held the event 201 just before military games in #Wuhan outlining pandemic. #CDC hired Pandemic officers all over the country beginning Nov 15th in advance preparation for the grandstanding.

OK, since I've pretty much finished 80% of the content on #Netflix, #PrimeVideo and #DisneyPlus (4 kids), I figured I'd take a break to share my all-time favorite movies about #publicrelations and #journalism. I hope it proves a worthy #bingewatch for you ...
Top 20 in reverse order, starting with No. 20 ...
#PhoneBooth (2003). An arrogant #PR guy spends an entire movie in a phone booth. Yes, I know there's no such thing as phone booths anymore. But if you're in PR and you're feeling a little claustrophobic these days, you'll relate.
19. #TheWizardofOz (1939). This foursome trudges all the way to Oz, kills the witch on wizard's orders, then finds out the wizard is a fraud. Somehow he recovers from this potentially career-ending discovery by giving his visitors a handful of trinkets and a speech. That's #PR.

The #Chinese regime has muzzled citizens who have sought to reveal the true situation of the #CCPVirus outbreak that originated in #Wuhan.

Those suppressed include #Whistleblower doctors, citizen #Journalists, scholars, and business people. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/silenced-stori…
Dr. Li Wenliang

“Seven ‘SARS-like’ cases from the Huanan seafood market have been confirmed,” he wrote on Dec. 30, 2019 on @WeChatApp.

#LiWenliang was among the first people to publicize information about the #CCPVirus outbreak in #Wuhan.
The police statement said he had violated the law.

“Don’t go against the authorities, don’t wear masks, don’t make careless remarks,” hospital colleague Zhao Chen recalled a department director as saying, after #LiWenliang was summoned by police.

The world will become less transparent. Less light 💡 .

A terrible thing.

IMO the advertising model was was doomed with the growth of the Internet. Too many have clung to the click model, then the paywall model that sets a price that is the same for regular people as it is
2/

For the well off. When I was younger I subscribed to four papers. It was expensive then - a young person not making rock star money but it was doable.

For nearly everyone from bottom to middle that model eliminates our ability to stay informed - and I have always believed

in print #journalism over #television journalism. Especially the longer, heavy lifting, serial pieces.

In my community I have done what I can. I have enforced the public records act. I have reviewed and researched and collected massive amounts of documents and tips

Dear #JournalismUG #MediaAfrica, the enormity of the #COVID19 crisis should not stop you from holding our political leaders and other forms of officialdom accountable.
The biggest role of the media in such times is to provide citizens with accurate information that can help them make sense of what is going on around them. The media also provide a platform for debate of the (policy and other) options that our governments should take. #COVID19
Above all the media hold power (read @MinofhealthUG @Janeruth_Aceng @KagutaMuseveni and others) to account. #COVID19

News Analysis🔎The @StateDept announced it will force anyone working as #Journalists for #Chinese state media in the US to reveal their identities to authorities and will also force state-run news outlets to reveal their real estate holdings. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/state-departme…
These measures could help the US gov't get a stronger grasp on how deeply the #Chinese regime’s #Disinformation arms have penetrated the US media landscape.

This new requirement will place the regime’s main state-run news outlets under the Office of Foreign Missions designation.
Identifying them to the @StateDept as official foreign missions is notably different from a FARA, or the “Foreign Agents Registration Act,” designation.

The action will designate the outlets and their employees as official arms of the #Chinese state.

YOU ARE BEING MANIPULATED, AND OUR DEMOCRACY DESTROYED,
BY #BRITAIN'S 'JEWISH' 'BOARD OF DEPUTIES' !

THE BIG LIE OF 'ANTI-SEMITISM'.

This LIE destroyed Jeremy #Corbyn, Labour's chances of winning the recent General Election ... and handed power, and control over your lives,
to the ultra-right wing Tories.

#Britain's democracy and your democratic rights, in other words, were stolen by the undemocratic, unrepresentative, ultra-right-wing 'Jewish' Board of Deputies.

- - - -

HOW A TINY MINORITY IN #BRITAIN ARE NOW CONTROLLING BRITAIN!
It will shock you to discover that in a country with a population of more than SIXTY SIX MILLION PEOPLE, there are ONLY 260,000 JEWS!

That means that LESS THAN 0.1% OF THE PEOPLE IN #BRITAIN ARE JEWISH.

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

However, it shifts the focus back to the old narrative that Kenyans are somehow responsible for the current insecurity, and that if we "got out of Somalia", the "Banditry" would stop. It also very subtly blames the 'Somali Muslim'.
#AlShabaab #AlshabaabAttacks #NorthernKenya
For over 56 years, those in the North Eastern Territories have been held hostage by the same idiotic thinking pushed by KEGovernment & Media (apologies @DennisOkari) that is OWNED by our political leaders..

How does the United Nations practice shading the world by masking the law, trading in the suffering of the Yemeni people, destroying hopes and looting funds with the guise of peace and humanity and negotiations ..?
#Houthi_Nations
Whereas the Yemeni people have suffered pain since Sunsun, and while the Yemeni child looks at the world weakly and hopefully, in the hope that he will find someone who saves him from the oppression of the Houthi militias, the world will be silent?
#Houthi_Nations
The UN envoy comes to stop the will of the people in liberation and give the militias an opportunity to grow the sheep. Then the militias return to kill the people again and loot and seize their freedom in front of the eyes of the silent UN envoy?

1.though my lawyers @estelledehon @suigenerisjen and I won a #FOIA litigation against #ScotlandYard (@metpoliceuk) to access the documents on 3 ex/current #WikiLeaks journalists, @khrafnsson, Sarah #Harrison, @SwaziJAF, @metpoliceuk keeps denying documents on them
@estelledehon @suigenerisjen @metpoliceuk @khrafnsson @SwaziJAF 2. in order to deny me access under #FOIA, #ScotlandYard is using "anti-terror" exemptions: they are treating 3 ex/current #WikiLeaks journalists as if they were #terrorists, though the very same #ScotlandYard acknowledges they are journalists

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

कल्पना कीजिए अगर दिल्ली मे हर शुक्रवार पथराव होता हो। आप घर से बाहर ना जा सकें, सिनेमा हॉल ग़ैर इस्लामी होने की वजह से बँद हों।अगर आप नेट पर ISIS की महिला ग़ुलामों के विषय मे पढ़ें और बाहर ISIS के झँडे हों।
कल्पना कीजिए आप महिला मुक्ति की झँडाबरदार हैं, नेटफ्लिक्स पर यूरोप के पाकिस्तानी ग्रूमिंग गैंग पर डॉक्यूमेंट्री देख रही हैं, बाहर से आवाज़ आती है - दिल्ली बनेगा पाकिस्तान। कल्पना कीजिए आपकी पत्रकार मित्र दिल्ली छोड़ कर जा रही हैं, क्योंकि दिल्ली मे उनके लिए जगह है पति के लिए नही
कल्पना कीजिए आपकी बिटिया नई जींस पहन कर बाहर जाना चाहती है, पर आप उसे हिजाब के बिना नही भेज सकती हैं क्योंकि बाहर आसिया अँदराबी की नज़रें सब देख रही हैं, और कल ही आप उसकी आँटी गिरजा टिक्कू के अंतिम संस्कार से लौटी हैं।
