A judge has ruled media are liable for defamatory comments on their Facebook Pages. The decision hinges on suggestion *all* comments can be hidden & premoderated. THEY CAN NOT BE. I'll explain why not, how Fbk comments work… and tell you a secret about FB comments. A THREAD
/1
The only thing I'm trying to explain here is what is technically possible in managing Fbk comments. I'm not arguing they shouldn't be managed, or that media should get a free pass. This potentially affects any business in the world with a Facebook Page, and Fbk is responsible
/2
First, the full text of the ruling is here buff.ly/2Nzy7AP Key assertion is that it's possible to "block all comments totally", "hide all comments" in a way that "no comments could ever be made or seen" or "forbid all comments by others" on a Fbk Pg. IT'S NOT POSSIBLE

Why can't Indian Media have dedicated Defence/War Correspondents like Foreign Media...?
Most seem to be "Jack of all Trades" more adept at creating hype rather than reporting news

Please change your "Defence Expert" Panelists
We are fed up seeing these "Delhi-Centric" panelists
Some whip up emotions - others have nothing new to say
Please get some unbiased knowledgeable Defence/Security Analysts from outside Delhi-NCR
Media should inform and educate.
Has any TV Channel done a dispassionate professional/technical analysis of the two recent Air Force Actions (Air Strike on Terror Target and Enemy Aircraft incursion and ensuing Air-Battle)...?
We saw only jingoistic debates.

Oh #MediaWatch is trending, there's a happy surprise. I just watched their special report on the unending "bias" attacks on the ABC. It's quite even-handed and informative. abc.net.au/mediawatch/tra…
It'll surprise no one, I'm sure, but I support the ABC remaining a strong, independent, uniquely Australian voice that is held in the public trust. #MediaWatch. I'm not Aussie, but the ABC was my first window into the country, from 10,000 miles away.
36AUD/year is a bargain for what the ABC offers. Its storied "bias" is really just a reflection of how ostentatiously right wing so much of the rest of the Australian media landscape is, which highlights the need for an independent outlet all the more.

Will #4corners present James Clapper as credible? He supported bogus intelligence that led to Iraq war.
Is trusting Clapper a lazy way of showing contempt for Trump?

'Mainstream liberals who despise Trump and yearn to drive him from office hold up Clapper as a man of unquestioned authority, integrity and patriotism — but no such qualities are available these days.'
