des "references" de Balenciaga.
Pas que de la sexualisation des enfants (ce qui est déjà pénalement répréhensible) mais de référence
a des tortures physiques , du sang, des crimes et sacrifices d'enfants. Image
La justice française ou Européenne doit se saisir immédiatement. Toutes les references ont été developpées sur twitter on peut les récapituler si besoin...

one of the things that #capitalism has done most notably is that it's given us a "leisure class". it's given us a seemingly permanent overclass of people with lucrative but *non-productive* careers, the sorts of "careers" that require very little actual work or effort.

(1/x)
our "ruling class" comprises an assortment of professional persons who are usually "in business", in some way.

they're corporate managers and executives, people working in finance, property owners and landlords, stockbrokers and traders, people with "passive income".

(2/x)
by "passive income" I mean income deriving from someone else's labor. collecting rent and interest on loans, for example, is "passive income". you don't work for it; your tenants and your debtors are the ones actually *earning* the money. you're simply collecting it.

Veel politici roepen om het hardst dat de #veiligheid van #journalisten enorm belangrijk is.
@Merelek @wierdduk
Maar wat doen deze politici in de praktijk?🤔
Zijn ze echt net zo #hypocriet als Jarno denkt?🧐
#Draadje🧵👇
1/16
Afgelopen weken waren er twee voorvallen waarin journalisten belaagd werden door #TweedeKamerleden
We gaan kijken wat de #fractieleiders daarvan zeggen, en als de #partijleider in het kabinet zit, natuurlijk ook wat die zegt.
2/16
Om welke gevallen gaat het?
Om @GideonvMeijeren die journaliste @Merelek belaagde.👇
#rioolrat
En om @F_azarkan die journalist @wierdduk belaagde.👇👇
#schandvlek
#FvD en #DENK doen dus verder niet mee in deze draad, maar wat zeiden de ANDEREN?🤨

Twitter ist eine Zeitung - oder: Was @elonmusk tun müsste, um Gold💫zu ernten. Ein🧵.

An der ganzen Saga interessiert mich nicht Elons Psychogramm. Mich interessiert: die Case Study im Medienbusiness.

Also: Was müsste anders laufen & warum (inkl. Studien). Los geht's!

1/n
1. Twitter ist ein Nachrichtenmedium
Jede Plattform wird anders genutzt, und davon hängt das Geschäftsmodell ab. Twitter ist vor allem: das grösste Nachrichtennetzwerk der Welt. (Darum hängen alle Politikerinnen, Journalisten, viele Professorinnen und Fachexperten hier.) 👋

2/n
Leute nutzen Twitter vor allem anderen, weil sie hier Nachrichten und Informationen erwarten: das ist mit 69% das wichtigste Nutzermotiv.

Also eben - Twitter ist ein Nachrichtennetzwerk.

(Siehe: researchgate.net/figure/Summary…)

Was bedeutet das für das Geschäftsmodell?

@TheAgenda's @tvo Live: Can #Democracy Survive the Collapse of #Media? dove into the survival of the @TorontoStar & professional journalism in troubled times.

#cdnpoli is hanging by a thread as bipartisanism shreds our national fabric & civil discourse dies.
@TheAgenda @tvo @TorontoStar Senator Wallin's belief that government has no place in helping our independent press, while understandable, rang hollow when many unfriendly foreign govts are already pouring money into unregulated #socialmedia that negatively influences Canada's fragile #cdnpoli #democracy Image
@TheAgenda @tvo @TorontoStar The $ that powers #socialmedia rebel influencers often comes from countries with vested interests in destabilizing Canadian unity.
Expecting professional journalists to survive in this asymmetrical media space is impossible. Supporting CDN journalism isn't a handout.

A paper I wrote with @M_Zappavigna got published today! It is part of The Communication Review's Special Issue on Mediatizations of Societal Threats in the Information Age edited by @VSalojarvi and @PaulJReilly, link to free copy:

This paper focuses on how methods in Systemic Functional Linguistics #SFL can be used to analyze problematic white supremacist and conspiratorial discourse, and contribute to research interests within the field of #media and #communication studies
Grateful for the editors of this special issue @VSalojarvi @PaulJReilly and the opportunity to present the initial findings of this work at the @IAMCRtweets conference in July 2021

there's a book I've never read. I suspect that my elder sibling Frisk, who in their previous pre-"fallen" life was super into cars, maybe read this book. for a while it was impossible to get away from—every used bookshop and thrift store had multiple copies of THIS.

~Chara photograph of Lee Iacocca's autobiography in a hardbound vol
it's the best-selling autobiography of celebrity CEO Lee Iacocca of Chrysler—

wait, Chrysler doesn't exist any more. now it's...(*rummages*)

@Stellantis. who the everlovin' [expletive deleted] is "Stellantis"?!

anyway, Lee Iacocca didn't write this thing, of course.

William Novak, a famous ghostwriter, did the real work. the guy's still around, it would seem; here's a February 2022 article about him: gothamghostwriters.com/lessons-from-l…

we're used to ghostwriting these days. it's routine deceit, accepted deceit. it's a *web service* practically.

#civilization. a big word, for momentous times.

I'm almost fifty, so I remember a lot of old books from my school days—a lot of books that any "traditionalist" bigot would regard as "classics".

this is one. I'm pretty sure I got assigned some reading in this once.

~Chara cover art for old edition of "Civilisation" by Ken
"Civilisation", by Sir Kenneth Clark. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_C…

Clark was a historian, museum curator, and writer whom David Attenborough chose to develop a mid-1960s color BBC presentation on great works of art. this notion became the hit TV miniseries "Civilisation".

~Chara
Clark wrote the book later, recapping the TV series—a common practice for such documentary shows.

I myself have several such books at home, for shows like Michael Wood's "In Search of the Trojan War" and David Burke's "Connections".

I'm sure Clark's was widely assigned.

so, this habitual brainfart from @mattyglesias is very typical of the superficial and purely *celebrity-driven* culture of American political discourse.

the trigger: journalist @whstancil (pardon me for citing you) urging the need to report on the @GOP's abuses of power.

~Chara
and @mattyglesias, for reasons that are almost certainly *dishonest*, attempts to pretend that this is pure political posturing—something done for effect, and not because there's a genuine public need for thorough reporting on @GOP fascısm and @GOP corruption.

~Chara
it's such an astonishing lapse of *basic #journalism*.

@GOP political life—especially since Donald Trump's installation in 2016 _normalized_ an extreme degree of corruption in national politics—has been wall-to-wall scandal. did @mattyglesias somehow overlook this?

So far Economist has not taken out this “unknown” terminology despite protests from some scientists and journalists that it is a loaded term that prejudices readers against the scientists. Indefensible. Authors of two papers in Science widely touted as ending the debate…
Over Covid-19 origins were “unknown” to the vast majority of scientists and virtually the entire public before their papers were published, and in fact still are. The #media has a responsibility here, and readers should beware of substantial biases in coverage.
One of the key flaws in mainstream science journalism is its often wholesale embrace of argument from authority, which is supposed to be anathema to the scientific method but often replaces it in real life. For busy, deadline driven science writers, it is a Godsend…

It’s really gotten to the point where “go talk to some virologists” or “I’m a virologist and you’re not” has become a crude form of gaslighting in Covid origins and GoF discussions. A technique perfected by Angela Rasmussen. But a real disservice to public understanding…
Of science, in that it elevates credentialism, argument from authority, and gatekeeping to the highest levels and can be used as a shield against all argumentation based on evidence. Also, a crude form of elitism, which implies that only “experts” are qualified to discuss…
Issues important to all of humankind and everyone else should sit unquestioning at their feet.
