1/ As the gaslighting that the lab origins hypothesis for #COVID19 is just some crazy “conspiracy theory” steadily loses effectiveness in the fact of growing evidence, journalists should note that it’s still not too late to catch up with the story. Here are some leads:
2/ And here are some more. The difference between members of DRASTIC (and independent reporters) and mainstream science journalists is that the former actually investigated Covid-19 origins, while the latter cozied up to their favored sources and copied down what they said.
3/ I’ve written a fair bit myself about why so many journalists have failed to properly report the origins story. Here is one piece for the Society of Profressional Journalists magazine, Quill:…

1/ Two claims central to the #COVID19 origins debate have now been published, apparently based on U.S. intel sources. First, that three researchers at the Wuhan Inst Virology got sick with something resembling Covid-19 during fall 2019. Second, that WIV researchers did…
2/ indeed insert furin cleavage sites into SARS-like viruses. As @Ayjchan has suggested, if these claims are considered well supported by the intel community, then the origins debate is over and a lab origin will be established within reasonable doubt….
3/ The furin cleavage site is key to getting at the truth, because how it got into the virus—through natural recombination, or either via genetic engineering or serial passage in cell cultures or animal models—is an unambiguous indicator of pandemic origins…

1/ If the intel agencies are going to miss the deadline for declassifying what they have on Covid-19 origins, which it appears they will, it’s odd that the mainstream #media does not have an update for us on how far along they are, whether they have asked for an extension…
2/ (which presumably can only be granted by Congress itself by amending the law), or even if they have done any work on this at all. Perhaps @nytimes, @washingtonpost, and other media have stories about this all ready to go; or perhaps the Biden Admin is a scofflaw…
3/ I assume we can count on leading members of Congress to start asking questions soon, or tell us what they know, since the vote was unanimous in both chambers. That should be bipartisan, of course, unless #Democrats think violating the law that Biden signed is okay.

पहली बात एक साधारण #मेडिकल स्टूडेंट भी बता देगा की वो कैंची साधारण घरेलू कैंची है,दूसरी बात काश #media किसी #metallurgy के प्रोफेसर को ही पूछ लेता की क्या चिता में 1000 डिग्री पर घंटों जलने के बाद #कैंची वैसी की वैसी ही रहेगी ?! Image

मेरा सिर्फ एक सवाल है - जब ये सच सामने आ जाएगा की जो कैंची अस्थियों में मिली वो तो ordinary grooming scissors है तो क्या मीडिया इसी बात को फिर तीन कॉलम की न्यूज बनाकर छापेगा?!🤔 @sandhuR_md @imaharyana2022 @BansalCP @bakalamekfauji @PremKal89092182 @Kaalateetham @sarkari_doctor Image

1/ It’s notable that most sources cited in the Times and Public/Racket stories about the “patient zeros” in Wuhan are identified as U.S. government officials. They are likely to be individuals familiar with what some of the intel shows (perhaps that of FBI or DoE)…
2/ and given the timing of the leaks, familiar with what the declassified documents about to be released will show. If that is true, then the question becomes, how good is the intel, especially the identification of three named researchers at the Wuhan Inst Virology?
3/ That is the question everyone should be asking, although the sources and methods behind that intel are likely to be redacted. These are guesses on my part, but also suggestions about how the intel should be regarded. Just as reporters can make mistakes, so can intel…

1/ As the story about the Wuhan Inst Virology researchers who allegedly contracted #COVID19 in fall 2019 races around the world, it also raises some questions about the mainstream #media in the U.S. As the deadline for declassifying intel on Covid origins arrives…
2/ in just days, it was a no-brainer for journalists to start talking to sources in the intel community about what was in them, or even what might be redacted if that is likely to happen. The appears to be just what reporters at the (London) Times have done, and also…
3/ at Public, an alternative site. Why were they first with this story rather than @nytimes or @washingtonpost? Have reporters from those and other major media not been talking to intel sources, or have they been doing so but coming up with different information?
Read 10 tweets
The correct journalistic response to this report and the earlier one in the [London] Times is to talk to sources and try to confirm the details—not to dismiss it, poo-poo it, or otherwise try to ignore it. The leaks may become a torrent.…
2/ My guess, and I could be wrong, is that the leaks we are seeing are from intel sources who know what information is being declassified and feel more free to discuss it as a result. We shall know soon. #media
3/ If those sources will talk to the Times and the Public reporters, they will talk to the NYT and WaPo if they simply make inquiries. Now is the time for followup reporting. If lab origin turns out to be true, we will expect mea culpas from all those who…

In 2020 and 2022, we asked #liberals and #conservatives to estimate how many unarmed black men were killed by police during the previous year.

Which group was more accurate?

Did accuracy improve over time?

Here's what we found.

#police #racism #race #media Image
2020 Survey: "How many unarmed black men were killed by police in 2019?"

The Washington Post's police shooting database says 12.

54% of "Very Liberals" (least accurate) estimated 1,000+.

13% of "Conservatives" (most accurate) estimated 1,000+. Image
2022 Survey: “How many unarmed black men were killed by police in 2021?”

The Washington Post's police shooting database says 11.

40% of "Very Liberals" (least accurate) estimated 1,000+.

16% of "Very Conservatives" (most accurate) estimated 1,000+. Image

1/ One of the many flaws in #media coverage of the #COVID19 pandemic is the very narrow focus of the “experts” used as sources in the reporting. Virologists are usually considered the number one go-to scientists, with physicians and public health officials a close second…
2/ But actually, understanding a pandemic (or any public health issue for that matter) requires the input of many specialties, including epidemiologists, immunologists, cell and molecular biologists, microbiologists, geneticists, statisticians, and then…
3/ scholars in the social sciences, including sociologists, psychologists, historians of science, philosophers of science, and so forth. To circle back, many virologists have militantly tried to claim this subject matter as their domain and only their domain, but journalists…

#Draadje Vandaag in de @AndereKrant aandacht voor #klokkenluiders.

Lees hoe ik de klok luidde over het #witwassen in de #jeugdzorg tussen @MinVWS en @ministerieJenV over de ruggen van #kinderen (inmiddels 6 miljard pj) en hoe er #70miljard uit de #AWBZ werd gehaald om de…
dat witwassen tussen de 2 #ministeries werkt als volgt:
Een kind wordt geboren en aangegeven bij de #gemeente. Dan komt het in het systeem van VWS.

Als een #kind met jeugdzorg in aanraking komt, hetzij vrijwillig, hetzij gedwongen, wordt het kind overgeheveld zonder dat
#ouders het weten van VWS naar het Justitie systeem. Vervolgens betaald VWS 1-malig voor de overheveling en daarna maandelijks een bedrag voor dat kind aan justitie.

In 2011 ving ik steeds meer kinderen op met mijn team waar geen geld voor beschikbaar was

For those of you who lack comprehension skills, including #Media & #Tabloid personnel, #GovernmentOfficials & general #Haters

✅ Near catastrophic - the potential to cause great harm, damage, suffering.

How could this be possible? The paparazzi could have #HarryandMeghan Image
caused a serious accident not just to H & M but also pedestrians, other drivers or the NYPD police with them.

If one of the Police or pedestrians had been severely hurt or died would you considered it catasthropic? Would you consider it a great damage or would you not care?
✅ Chase - pursue in order to catch or catch up with.

Chase is not about how fast or slow the chaser is moving.

I could say I chased my sister or if the house. Would you have a problem with that?

What exactly were the paparazzi doing if they weren't chasing H & M?

Just watched the #CNNTownhall with 2024 Presidential candidate and former President @realDonaldTrump , as well as the post-townhall panel discussion.

One thing is clear: #America is a broken country. It's split right down the middle.

Racial divisions and #massshootings are peaking, the economy is cratering, #poverty and #homelessness are rising.

And meanwhile, the US government is involved in, or threatening to get involved in, wars from #Ukraine to #Taiwan to #Syria to #Iran to #NorthKorea.

When they should be working on healing the divisions in their own nation. White vs non-White, Rural vs Urban, Rich vs Poor, drug addiction, broken homes - all these are tearing America apart.

#IPL is spreading hate amongst the citizens and minting money.

This is not a new analysis and it's known for most people but after watching yesterday's incident between #RCBvLSG this is the right time for all the cricket fans not to fall into this trap. 1/n
IPL has always been everything about #MONEY and #entertainment. The teams were based on most popular cities in #India so that each team will have larger fan following and representation, just like #football leagues. 2/n
The people behind #IPL were/are biggest #businessmen, #Celebrities from various fields and #politicians. It gathered enough attention when it got started as new league in 2008. Just because IPL has celebs backing doesn't mean it's gonna be a superhit league in the long run. 3/n

"artists can no longer appear real on their own" – a perverse notion of centralized platforms becoming gatekeepers for identity/authenticity verification...?

eh, the problem was that anyone thought appearance was reality to being with...… #AI #LLM ImageImageImage

...that's the idea behind @benthompson's 'Zero Trust Authenticity vs castle-and-moat' analogies, e.g.:

Just because a song looks and sounds like Drake doesn't mean it came from Drake – its authenticity must (obviously?) still be verified 👇… #media Image

...but that's not obvious to everyone:

to whatever extent there's a crisis in the authenticity and verification of (mis/dis)information, it's concentrated among non-internet natives – i.e. Millennials/Zoomers aren't the problem 👇… #boomers #content Image

1/ A new and much more detailed analysis of the genomic data from the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan by virologist Jesse Bloom of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center essentially exonerates raccoon dogs as the source of the pandemic.…
2/ The study confirms and expands upon earlier analyses by @stevenemassey and others which find that the much-publicized "co-mingling" of raccoon dog DNA with SARS-CoV-2 is actually negligible compared to findings of the virus associated with other species, especially fish.
3/ Bloom explains his methodology and results in a Twitter thread which I have unrolled here:…

🇫🇷 "L’ingérence est une politique d’influence masquée."

Retour sur l'audition à huis clos du directeur de la #DGSI Nicolas Lerner devant la commission d’enquête parlementaire relative aux ingérences politiques, économiques et financières de puissances étrangères.

🇫🇷 "Nous sommes passés d’un monde où les États se livraient à une compétition à un monde dans lequel ils assument des confrontations bien plus directes." #DGSI
🇫🇷 "Les États qui nourrissent des ambitions sur la scène mondiale espionnent donc les positions françaises et leur évolution.

On entend par espionner le fait d’accéder de façon illégale à des informations confidentielles." #DGSI #espionnage

#draadje #Demmink #NicoL

NicoL is de enige #veroordeelde in de #Rolodex zaak. Via via kwam ik met Nico in contact. Ik had geen idee wie het was tot ik hem googelde.

Mijn eerste #reactie was blokken en nooit meer reageren tot ik me realiseerde dat ik wss de enige zou zijn
die de kans kreeg met hem te praten over gruwelijke zaken en mss helderheid kon krijgen inzake Demmink.

Een man zoals Nico heb ik nooit eerder in mijn leven ontmoet. Zijn ogen stralen niets uit, zijn ijskoud en in beide gesprekken die ik voerde met hem veranderde dat ook
niet. Op dat moment zat Nico in open #TBS.

Na onze gesprekken is hij opnieuw gesloten en overgeplaatst. Tegelijkertijd werd tegen mij een Schengen #arrestatiebevel afgegeven.

Nico heeft me verteld over de #gruwelijkheden met de #kinderen, de nooit opgeloste moord op bokser

Population as a whole don’t like wars. They don’t want to go into wars. They have to be fooled to reluctantly go into wars based on lies and misinformation.
