here is the "yes,l agree that the sun rises in the east" disclaimer: no one should have to be shooting cops, cops shouldn't have to be shooting others (but there is a lot more to cops using deadly force)
But the way that @CBSNews @CBS8 & @nbcsandiego are covering the #ComptonShooting of LASD deputies lays bare broadcast #journalism's dependence on quick, easy content from reliable sources at the expense giving viewers a fuller context.
Context to why someone is this volatile world would shoot an LASD deputy could be explained by the suspicious death of #AndresGuardado

I don't use my real name on twitter because I can't afford to.

I have multiple environmental complaints and disability discrimination challenges lodged with various state or statuatory bodies, and am trying to gather information on others, with the end goal of legal action.
I have also left or turned down jobs due in research due to the mining influence on academic freedom in science, and public service jobs over the politics and suppression of information in Qld.

Then there has been the personal and police intimidation.
Police intimidation at legal protests is sadly not unusual in Qld, under Joh or Dutton.

But I was concerned about the Fixated Persons Unit intimidating environmental whistleblowers here, and the environmental focus of police raids, attempts to change protest laws in Qld

I am finally putting out on social media. I have quit #RNDTV for ethical reasons. I am still under notice period but I just can't resist today to throw light upon the aggressive agenda being run by #RNDTV to peddle Leftist propaganda. High time I spoke out!
I was taught #journalism to unearth truth. But at RNDTV, I was always told to dig out news which shows BJP in bad light. Even if there wasn't any news against BJP, I was made to fabricate one. They forced me to create "muslim are victim" propaganda in every story I ran.
I had many times tried to show the news where Hindus have been the victim but some Madagascar award winner always got that story removed. During Palghar Sadhus' lynching case, I was told to not dig much into the case because it doesn't suit their propaganda.

I am finally putting out on social media. I have quit #RepublicTV for ethical reasons. I am still under notice period but I just can't resist today to throw light upon the aggressive agenda being run by #RepublicTV to vilify #RheaChakraborty . High time I speak out!
I was taught #journalism to unearth truth. In #shushant case, I was asked to take out details of everything but not truth. As I investigated, sources close to both families agreed #Sushant was suffering from depression. Ofcourse it didn't suit #Republic agenda.
I was asked to investigate on financial angle in the case, the account details of #Rhea father was accessed, which didn't get remotely linked to the agenda of siphoning of #sushant money for their two flats. Ofcourse, this also didn't suit the agenda!

1/5. At the very moment people need journalism the most, and media are declared an essential service, media owners throw out 1,200 journalists and media workers. And subject thousands more to savage salary cuts

#journalism #PaidMedia #media #MediaMonopoly #Sacked
2/5. True, some smaller outfits, crippled by an advertising collapse, did try to retain their workers. But it’s the giants, highly profitable companies rich in cash reserves, who have unleashed the worst of the job-slaughter

#journalism #PaidMedia #media #MediaMonopoly #Sacked
3/5. Corporate media report job losses in the IT sector, in Uber, in Swiggy… But are silent on the slaughter within – not a word about how they’ve laid off 100s of journalists some of whom have served them 15-20 years

1-I’ve been covering the #refugee #migrant crisis for 5 years and I thought I’d write down a few of my experiences following the largest migration of people the world has ever known. I hope this thread raises awareness of the complexity around the subject. pics ©_edwardcrawford Migrants wearing face masks...
2-What I find interesting about the refugee/migrant crisis, particularly on social media. Is that people with little or no experience seem to be the most vocal and convinced of their opinions. Image
3-I’ve covered the migrantion crisis for 5 years & worked on the ground extensively. I’ve visited dozens of refugee camps & illegal migrant encampments. I’ve spent hundreds of hours with refugees & migrants. Listening to their stories and trying to make sense of this crisis. Image

I'm sharing the following thread because I feel the public should know how difficult it has been for journalists like myself to receive transparent and timely public records request responses from some @CountyofLA departments during this pandemic...Here goes... #transparency
When Safer-At-Home orders first came down in LA in March, I initiated a public records request with @lapublichealth to find out about @CountyofLA's initial response to the #COVID19 pandemic. When was the virus first discussed? How? What steps were taken to protect the public?
In March, I requested e-mails with extremely specific terms related to the coronavirus for a finite period of time (January to early-March) to/from two @lapublichealth leaders. @CountyofLA began a series of delays on the records request. 14 days... another 14 days...

What did you gain?

It's a simple question that I want to ask media houses that thought - and are still thinking - it's a good practice to terminate employees on the spot. The editor, board, management & HR all are collectively responsible but no one would reply.
Who will question the media, which prides itself in the power of questioning it has. Frankly, it doesn't matter if you say in private that I'm sorry and this shouldn't have happened. The fact remains it happened and it happened under your watch.
Were these the morals, ethics & values that the organisation was built on? Didn't you feel proud when the reporters brought you a story that revealed the unethical practices at various establishments, most notably the government! You would have put it on the front page too!

According to #Stratfor, #JulianAssange is a victim of #FVEY (#USA) #government security agencies' #targetingprograms, which illegally framed #Assange for crimes he did not commit.

#FreeASSANGE Image
According to #ICWatch's aggregated #LinkedIn profiles, #FVEY security community's CVs indicate "#honeypots"/"#roleplayers" are on the government payroll...to entrap people.

#FVEY govt. security agencies conspired with transnational corporations to attack #JulianAssange's finances. Attacking finances is just one of many criminal tactics that #CIA/#FBI/#DHS, etc. use to illegally harm individuals' incomes, without due process.

This is why I think @AliZafarsays has been targeted maliciously, criminally and in a disgusting, defamatory way.

(Information that I'm sharing here is on the public record and public documents.)

#AliZafar #MeToo #FalseAllegations
(I was going to wait to do this but apparently a fake account cell is already active in targeting me with baseless claims - as is their habit - so I am going to share some stuff here which you can read at your own peril.) #MeToo #AliZafar #FalseAllegations
The first thing you should do is watch this entire program. I had not seen it until a few months ago. Please watch this in full if you haven't already.



(and please don't quote me stuff AZ has said in rejoinders before, I know it already)
