1. I have reached out to New York University, asking for comment about Fox News' Maria Bartiromo's seat on the @nyuniversity Board of Trustees.

"Maria Bartiromo’s top 10 fails" by @ErikWemple @washingtonpost #journalism…
2. @Poynter Institute, a global leader in #journalism, yesterday: "Bartiromo delivers another troubling interview with Donald Trump: Bartiromo’s transformation from once-respected journalist to full-blown Donald Trump sympathizer appears complete."…
3. NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen agreed with me, tweeting that he felt nauseated, as I do, by Bartiromo's seat on the NYU board. I attended NYU Stern School of Business many years ago.

Science journalists have done a great service by telling the public when the science is "settled," eg around climate change, the theory of evolution, etc. Those are areas in which there is a real scientific consensus. They do a disservice when they become advocates...
for one side or the other of a debate in which the science is not settled and there is no consensus. We are seeing way too much of that with the lab-leak hypothesis, in some cases outright cheerleading by science journalists and loose use of the term "conspiracy theory."
I taught science #journalism to grad students at two major universities for a number of years, and while we dissected false notions of "objectivity" we never said it was okay to become advocates for positions that have very little evidence either way. The pendulum...

I’ve now had a chance to read this piece in @bmj_latest by @thackerpd. A really good overview of where the #media, especially mainstream science #journalism, went wrong in its coverage of the Covid-19 origins issue from the very beginning.…
The subtitle, “did the media fall victim to a misinformation campaign?” Captures part of the problem; but the other part is that some reporters have now become part of the misinformation campaign, in the sense that they have become cheerleaders for the natural origins...
Hypothesis despite the clear lack of convincing evidence for either of the two leading hypotheses (natural origins vs. lab leak.) Also, too many reporters are still either overlooking or deliberately ignoring the considerable evidence that China has engaged in a...

A firebreak is a gap in combustible material that acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a wildfire.

What Boris Johnson's reckless Government of sociopaths has announced is the opposite of a firebreak: they're doing everything they possibly can to fuel the fire.
This is an incredibly dark time for Britain: we have a pathetically weak opposition, our democracy hangs by a thread, & our broken electoral system has handed unimaginable power to by far the worst UK Govt in history - despite fewer than 3 in 10 of the electorate voting for them.
In a functioning democracy, the powerful are held accountable for their actions. But our Government lies with impunity & misleads constantly, while demonising swathes of the population, & showing utter contempt for voters & flagrant disregard for rules, regulations, codes & laws.

#journalism in 2021 sucks! in particular the gaming journalism!

let's investigate - the six pillars of journalism:
1, writing
2, editorial
3, access to sources
4, marketing & promotion
5, financing
6, competition
what people think journalism is like:
"writing is the most important"

it's literally the least important part - and much of it is mere activism: it's cheaper to hire young, inexperienced activists & pay them with platform access than hire proper journalists
what people think journalism is like:
"wtf is editorial?"

the most impactful part of it - this is how "lies by omission" and "undue representation" and finally "manufacturing consent" happen

The killing of Jeremy Corbyn
Peter Oborne and David Hearst

The former Labour leader was the victim of a carefully planned and brutally executed political assassination
Former Labour Leader Jeremy #Corbyn (Reuters)
Throughout his parliamentary career, the mild mannered, infuriatingly calm Jeremy Corbyn has never failed to excite strong emotions.
For his enemies, he will go down as one of Labour’s worst leaders.

#Russia: Today, the Basmanny District Court in #Moscow extended home detention for four editors of the independent student-run magazine #DOXA until September 14, @mediazzzona reports.

#DOXA’s editors Aramyan, Tyshkevich, Metelkin, and Gutnikova have been under home detention since mid-April; they are only allowed to leave house for 2 hours per day, and are banned from using the internet or other communication tools.

#Russian authorities should immediately drop all the charges against the #DOXA editors, return their equipment, and let them do their jobs covering important political events in the country without fear,” @gulnozas

A gist of what Dr #Fauci said last night in a Zoom chat abt #COVID19 & #science organised by @niemanfdn
A thread:
Asymptomatic transmission has been most worrying when it comes to the #pandemic. Interested to understand long #Covid going forward, the profound impact it can have.
#Science is a self corrected process but had been interpreted as flip-flopping. If you don't evolve with data you're doing something wrong.
People should not confuse #socialmedia for media which has no quality control. Classic #journalism hasn't changed. We are looking at a battle between distorters and truth-tellers.

@SenTedCruz .@SenTedCruz (@TedCruz), I couldn't beyond a few seconds into this bit of #propaganda, #Renfield, because this was not #reporting, #news, or #journalism.

This was a #FoxNews #MAGA[t] leading with #Republican/#Trump #talkingpoints and you nodding, stupidly, in agreement...
@SenTedCruz @tedcruz ...and following the script.

In other words, this is just you playing the #MAGA[ts], #Renfield - again.

There were no "emails showing Facebook acting as state agency on behalf of the federal government."

The #FauciEmails is another point of phony #outrage for #Republicans.
@SenTedCruz @tedcruz .@tedcruz (@SenTedCruz), what's especially hysterical about this clip, your tweet, and your claim, #Renfield, is that you hypocritically make this claim about a @FoxNews piece and it's #FoxNews that acts as a #propaganda outlet for the @GOP - and always has.

Alright this was a fun one from @giselilla who asked the following #OSINT and #journalism :

How can Hunchly be used by journalists during a breaking story to collaborate in Google Drive or Sheets because every newsroom has it?

Let me show you how I made the following:
Today we'll cover codeless (but not free) Hunchly data forwarding with @zapier This will demonstrate how a team of freelance journalists, or a newsroom could have a quick shared Google Spreadsheet of interesting URLs that team members are finding. Read on!

Sign up for a account, you *will* need a premium account. Codeless does mean costless :) We'll cover some free alternatives another day, but then you gotta code.

No spine, no #journalism ethics. @SkyNews serves as the mouth piece of Israel's army, now busy committing #GenocideinGaza.

We better be seeing some serious disciplinary action.
At least they didn't straight out call for #genocide like @Newsweek, because that's how low the standards are.

And here disciplinary action is not enough, a criminal investigation for #HateCrime and #IncitementToGenocide.
And since I'm on a roll, let's talk about the @CNN apologia for #genocide.

Woke up this morning thinking about the decision by @UNC board of trustees to deny @nhannahjones tenure. It’s happening for one reason only: a white supremacist attempt to destroy and delegitimate Nicole Hannah Jones’ (Pulitzer Prize winning) leadership of the #1619Project. 1/x
@UNC @nhannahjones Which is anathema to these forces because it places slavery at the very heart of the American narrative. 2/x
@UNC @nhannahjones The main focus needs to be on the UNC board of trustees (and the role that Art Pope–North Carolina’s version of the Koch brothers–and his allies have played in this story). It’s also a crucial choice point for #journalism #philanthropy, specifically the @knightfdn. 3/x

Caitlyn Jenner to Hannity: "My friends are leaving California. My hangar, the guy right across, he was packing up his hangar and I said, where are you going? And he says, 'I'm moving to Sedona, Arizona, I can't take it anymore. I can't walk down the streets and see the homeless'"
Caitlyn Jenner explains that she's opposed to transgender girls playing sports against other girls. But then in the next breath she says she wants to be a role model for transgender girls.
"Forest management is extremely important" -- Caitlyn Jenner's comments about wildfires reminds me a lot of what Trump used to say about them
