Democracy is at stake in the midterms. The media must convey that.

We journalists have to try harder and find new ways to convey to voters how badly things could turn out

Good article about journalistic responsibility by @Sulliview…
"thanks to a paranoid, delusional and potentially violent new strain in our nation’s politics, Americans may not be able to count on future elections being conducted fairly — or the results of fair elections being accepted."

"most of the Republican Party publicly touts the LIE that Donald Trump won the 2020 election but that the vote was rigged and victory stolen from him.

The Republican elected officials who won’t back Trump are being driven out of office by his faithful."… Image

Since we’re all aghast!!! at the role of propaganda, it’s critical that American #journalists realize & publicly acknowledge that they are frequently repeating Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) propaganda in their coverage of this longest military occupation of #Palestine
When your frame of reference for right & wrong is what your apartheid bestie Israel tells you, and not International Law, not what DECADES OF HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS HAVE UNEQUIVOCALLY SHOWN, you’re going to fall into the propaganda trap. Israel uses the word “civilians”…
For Jewish Israelis, rarely if ever for Palestinians. Palestinians living in Jenin Camp are refugees. They are civilians who were violently removed from their homes by Israel because they are Palestinians. 20 years ago, Israel raided the camp and decimated it. Just as Ukrainians

US billionaire John Malone has more money invested in British media assets (inc GB News) than Rupert Murdoch. His company Discovery is likely to buy @Channel4 & he's former Chair of the dangerous & influential Libertarian (Koch-funded) think tank, Cato Institute.
Discovery, AT&T & Warner Bros will create Warner Bros Discovery, pending a $43 BILLION merger. Discovery CEO David Zaslav will lead the new company, & John Malone will be on the Board.

"Take back control" - & hand it to foreign libertarian billionaires.

#NZ This is a long thread on the issue of harassment & threats made against #WomenInLeadership, primarily #WomenInPolitics.

⬇️ Reviews incidents over time, highlights the danger & escalation of #misogyny & the real life consequences on the personal & our democratic institutions.
This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”…

Turkish oppositional journalist Sedef Kabaş: "Sedef Kabaş is now free 🙏".

Today, a #Turkish #court has ordered the release of #journalist @SedefKabas who was jailed on Jan 22, 2022 on charges of "Insulting" the #President #Erdogan. (1/5)
On the oppositional TV channel @Tele1 she first quoted and then tweeted this Circassian proverb:

"A bull does not become king just by entering the palace, but the palace becomes a barn." (2/5)

This was taken by #Erdogan's propaganda chief Fahrettin Altun and the #Erdogan-dependent #Turkish judicial system as an insult to #President #Erdogan, who's an #autocrat, whereupon she was arrested. (3/5)…

🚨Don't miss this important part of the story: #Russia has drafted "kill lists" of exiled dissidents in #Ukraine, many in Kyiv. It's yet another indication Kremlin rhetoric about NATO is just that. So appeasing Putin regarding NATO won't even mollify him.…
#Russia Planning Post-Invasion Arrest & Assassination Campaign in #Ukraine - targeting prominent Ukrainian political opponents, anti-corruption activists, and Belarusian & Russian dissidents living in exile in Ukraine.…
Biden administration was "startled" by how formalized #Russia's kill lists are — targeting Russian & #Belarus #dissidents in exile in #Ukraine, #journalists and anti-#corruption activists, and vulnerable populations such as religious and ethnic #minorities and LGBTQI+ persons.

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.
The @US_FDA #fda reaffirmed their definition of modified viral #nucleic acid that alters #CELL Jan 30th 2020 #COVID ImageImageImageImage

If you think I was angry before...
Award-winning historian @drphillips2001 has been fired by @collincollege for speaking up on COVID safety, confederate monuments, and...protecting First Amendment rights of profs. (shared with permission)
#twitterstorians #highered #journalists
If you have a radio show, a TV show, a podcast, I am BEGGING you -- please cover this story. Less than one week after accepting a judgment against them in MY lawsuit over first amendment rights, @collincollege fired a beloved professor for exercising his First Amendment rights.
it seems to me that @collincollege leadership is part of a criminal enterprise. Professors' public critiques have raised the possibility of scrutiny, and the college is obviously trying to chill the speech of faculty lest malfeasance and/or misdeeds be fully exposed.

🔴 Under President Xi Jinping’s rule, the Chinese Communist Party has drastically increased its control over journalists. Read RSF’s investigative report “The Great Leap Backwards of Journalism in #China”.…
#1 ▶️ Journalists forced to be the Party’s mouthpiece.
To receive their press cards, journalists already have to download the “Study Xi, Strengthen the Country” propaganda app that can collect their data, and will soon have an annual 90-hour training on “Xi Jinping Thought”.
#2 ▶️ The world’s biggest captor of journalists.
127 #journalists are currently detained by the regime. Investigating a “sensitive” topic can result in years of detention in unsanitary prisons, where ill-treatment can lead to death. Read the report here:

Cosmopolitan liberal journalists only know how to parrot intelligence community and pentagon talking points, socially engineer the gullible or less well off socio-economically, exploit fears, create negative feedback loops, confirm one another's bias and hyperventilate
They are smug and see themselves as morally and intellectually superior to "regular" citizens. They show special disdain for blue collar workers and the "middle" America. They LOVE controlling and influencing those they see as "beneath" them....
The cosmopolitan liberal journalist in the modern age is tasked with the job of social engineering. The work for the regime to instill obedience to authority in the population. #obedience #socialengineering #journalists

Question re. the #journalists we left behind in #Afghanistan: Is there any kind of fund to support them? They need money, if there's to be any chance of them getting out of there. If there is, I want to tell them how to access it.
Could people please RT this and direct it to the attention of anyone who might know? @IlvesToomas? @RFE_RLNEWS? @pressfreedom? @USEmbassyKabul?
