Having studied several articles as part of the #PeriodsandPatrakars campaign, we have come upon a pattern in the reportage around menstruation in India. This #Thread hopes to evoke and sensitize stakeholders to undertake measures to responsibly report on menstruation.
There are 2 main categories of improvements the media can make:
A.Use Inclusive Language and Evidence Base
B.Expanding the Range of Issues Covered
A.1) Inclusive Positive Language

Across several articles reviewed, it was noticed that when talking about menstruation, the subjects are always referred to as a binary word ‘woman’ rather than its more inclusive alternative ‘menstruators’. Image

My father succumbed to a heart attack in an ambulance while waiting outside the hospital. He was not even given a fighting chance for his life.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

The Hon Minister Mr Singh, #IndianArmedForces, is a special guest at #VictoryDayParade.

I'm exhausted, but then the study must go on. Here's month four of the state of #OpEds in @IndianExpress @htTweets & @the_hindu.

April has been rougher than March.

It's actually been really really awful. In general, and for #OpEds too.

THREAD
Again, excluded Sundays since they're reserved for the usual columnists.

The quality of #writing has remained the same as the same writers have been writing here since time immemorial.

@IndianExpress had 130 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 122. #BringInMoreWomen
Of the 130 in @IndianExpress, women got only 18 bylines. This includes four joint bylines.

Their 'The Editorial Page', gave top billing to women ONLY ONCE. Wow. Aruna Sundararajan wrote on the lockdown dilemma.

Well this is fun:

nypost.com/2020/04/09/bil…

Where to begin?

First, I won't be engaging with the hack #journalist (late of deal breaker and business insider who finally made it to the brass ring for liars, the NY Post).

Life does suck for our business right now.
(and much of the world in a far more serious way, I don't want to compare any of this even remotely to a pandemic!)
But this agenda-driven #journalist who knew what he'd write before he started apparently thinks we're a hedge fund and quotes a HF manager who also doesn't know us.
You know he he called around searching for the worst quote he could find from the one who knew us least.

OK, since I've pretty much finished 80% of the content on #Netflix, #PrimeVideo and #DisneyPlus (4 kids), I figured I'd take a break to share my all-time favorite movies about #publicrelations and #journalism. I hope it proves a worthy #bingewatch for you ...
Top 20 in reverse order, starting with No. 20 ...
#PhoneBooth (2003). An arrogant #PR guy spends an entire movie in a phone booth. Yes, I know there's no such thing as phone booths anymore. But if you're in PR and you're feeling a little claustrophobic these days, you'll relate.
19. #TheWizardofOz (1939). This foursome trudges all the way to Oz, kills the witch on wizard's orders, then finds out the wizard is a fraud. Somehow he recovers from this potentially career-ending discovery by giving his visitors a handful of trinkets and a speech. That's #PR.

Orwellian: #Facebook selected StopFake, which disseminated fakes & propaganda concerning #Maidan massacre, war in #Donbas & far right/neo-Nazis in #Ukraine, as its main fact-checker in Ukraine. Stories rated as 'false' by StopFake would become practically invisible on Facebook.
Stopfake selection was made by its ex-member, who is now #Facebook Public Policy Manager for #Ukraine. She was far-right Svoboda volunteer during Maidan. She tweeted then about Hotel Ukraina snipers. But in Orwellian fashion, Stopfake called such snipers 'fake.' Now on Facebook?
StopFake falsely claims that Facebook post by far right priest calling for Ukrainians to use fascist hand salute along with Glory to Nation & Death to Enemies slogans under virus pretext is just about use of Roman salute to protect against #Covid_19 spread stopfake.org/en/fake-fight-…

A thread on #sexism
I was waiting for the euphoria of #DelhiAssemblyElections2020 to reduce to post this. I am looking out for a job, it is no secret. But, responses to my applications are very less, I don't know why. But a recent one was blatantly sexist. 1/n
This is a #bangalorestartup, a #fintech working with banks. Got the founder's number through a good friend, he has been sending me a few leads. I got in touch with the founder (let us call this company X) of X. He asked me to email my resume, which I did. 2/n
Post that, I got a call from his #HR representative, after asking me basic details she asked me a few sexist questions. How many children I have? How old are they? Do they go to school? Who will manage them while I am away? Do I have adequate support to manage them? #Sexism 3/n

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

In a press conference today, before my annual luncheon with domestic and international media representatives on the occasion of #Journalist Day, I said the following (thread):
I noted the repeated statements by @SecPompeo that Iran must change its policies in order for Iranians to eat is pure #EconomicTerrorism.

Tying bread & medicine to politics is to kill & starve people into submission. Iranians will never capitulate.
@SecPompeo I also said that while @realdonaldtrump may want photo op, the US isn't interested in talks; rather, Iran's submission. That will never happen.

An example of US tactics: Threatening to designate somebody in two weeks unless he accepts your invitation to chat in the Oval Office.

In bombshell revelation, former Prosecutor General of #Ukraine suggests that member of #Ukrainian #Parliament ordered assassination by car bomb of Pavlo Sheremet. Sheremet was prominent #Belarusian émigré journalist & wrote for Ukrainska pravda in Ukraine. strana.ua/articles/inter…
Court decisions suggested that prosecution investigated involvement of neo-Nazi led Azov regiment members in his assassination. Failure to solve murder of prominet #journalist in #Ukraine indicates cover-up, and ex-Prosecutor General of Ukraine openly admits that.
Based on its track record of #Ukraine coverage, Western mainstream #media is unlikely to report this bombshell revelation by ex-Prosecutor General that #Ukrainian #Parliament member, possibly linked to neo-Nazi Azov, is involved in ordering assassination of prominent #journalist

#Thread 1/ Today's a day when I think a lot of people are going to be discussing and critiquing #journalism Since I've been teaching the subject for quite some time now, here's some things I tell my students about their relationships to public officials.
2/ The first rule of #journalism, even in the @spj_tweets code of ethics, is to "seek truth and report it." Sources of truth don't always want it shared. Everyone wants to look good, and when people have chosen to do bad things, they don't want you to expose them.
3/ A side #ProTip for newsmakers: The best way to avoid unfavorable coverage is to not do bad things. It's not 100%, but it works a lot better than other shenanigans you try.

Wenn Ex @DerSPIEGEL @welt-#Journalist Matthias #Matussek Geburtstag feiert, dann zeigt ein Blick auf die Gästeliste, wie nah sich #Rechte bis hin zur Identitären Bewegung #IB und Bürgerliche, bspw Journalisten von @ARD_Presse + #Spiegel schon sind.

Thread zu #MitRechtenFeiern
#Matussek ist seit Jahren kontinuierlich nach rechts gerückt und mittlerweile ganz außen angekommen. Er rief in Hamburg auf einer "Merkel muss weg"-Demo Nationalisten zum Widerstand auf, bekennt sich zu den Identitären, tritt für die #AfD auf.

Entsprechend braun sind seine Gäste
Zum Beispiel Mario Müller, von #Mattusek "mein Identitärer Freund" genannt. Gemeinsam mit Müller und anderen Idenitären reiste Mattusek nach #Syrien, ua nach Maalula. #Assad.s Syrien ist für ihn "eine Pilgerreise". Propaganda für einen Diktator, veröffentlicht bei #TichysEinblick

Four manifestations of political persecution & #censorship against #journalists in #Ukraine just this month: 1) prominent Ukrainian journalist is prosecuted for calling civil war in Ukraine "civil war" & for other media reporting on conflict in Ukraine. strana.ua/news/189367-vl…
2). The head of the #Ukrainian bureau of the #Austria ORF TV channel is banned from #Ukraine because of his reporting. orf.at/stories/311439…
3) A TV channel in Western Ukraine is investigated by the Security Service of Ukraine for broadcasting an interview with the most popular Ukrainian blogger who is based in Western Europe.

Just received this beautiful write up in another group. I was touched reading it and Felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare

Dr Laha -
#TheContactAndTheConnection

Year 1990. I was returning from Delhi by flight with a monk of Ram Krishna Mission.
One journalist from Chile was there with us . He was to take an interview of the monk.

Journalist - dear Sir , in your last lecture u told us about Jogajog ( contact ) & Sanjog (connection ). It's really confusing. Can u please explain the difference to me ?
Monk smiled a little, but deviating from question, he asked - are u from Chile ?
Journalist(J) - Yes
Monk (M) - who are there at home ?

Journalist thought Monk is trying to avoid his question... this is a very personal and unwarranted question.

Brave Yellow Vests march in #Caen, led by victims mutilated by #Flashball Grenades and Rubber Bullets, used by Macron Regime Thugs to try & intimidate the protesters into submission.

Vive La France!
#GiletsJaunes march towards the Cathedral in #Rouen at the start of #ActeXII to protest against Macron's disastrous and extreme Neoliberal Globalist policies, which have caused so much poverty & human misery throughout France.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
