#Toxicnewsrooms? Ask me. I saw someone literally die in front of me. He suffered a massive heart attack and breathed his last in an e-rickshaw on way to LNJP. Before we talk about #toxicworkculture, first we need to understand what is a #toxicworkplace. @IndEditorsGuildv
“...a workplace that is marked by significant infighting, where personal battles often harm productivity. Toxic workplaces are often considered the result of toxic employers and/or toxic employees who are motivated by personal gain (power, money, fame, or special status)
, use unethical, mean-spirited, and sometimes illegal means to manipulate people …” Toxic workers do not recognize a duty to organization or their co-workers in terms of ethics or professional conduct. They don’t recognize merit and thrive in an atmosphere of favouritism

#Denounce, #deny, #deceive - 6 common tactics of media manipulators and why they work to sabotage public discourse

It is time to stop being naive about online discourse.

“The discourse holds so many traps for the unwary. It’s a bit like financial scams and gambling that are a tax on the financially naïve. A similar tax is being levied on the intellectually naïve.” —  @ArthurCDent

@ArthurCDent In the article, I lay out 6 common #manipulation tactics and why they work to sabotage discourse on scientific topics.

First up is "just asking questions" or "#sealioning", which uses social expectations and #framing effects to distort conversations.

The #PutinHitler system of fear can’t solve its people problems.
Regime choice ist external distraction of opinion + internal destruction of people
#negotiate ignores that wars, not war serve its purpose.
#ukraine only more of the same.
Long #thread 1/22
Western approval ratings used by #Russia at gunpoint explains the repeated requirement for wars, not war.
Not external factors, as #negotiate likes to make believe.
Reason to stop war will not work for a system, which needs to start wars and only stops to prepare for the next. 2
#negotiate speak in terms of resources & solutions omits, it requires a productive system to work for output. All #terrorists systems quickly deteriorate to their single core asset, which is fear, not productivity. #Russia is the mother of fear, fed by western appeasement. 3/22

On 1 February @PaBalochistan passed #Balochistan #RTI Act 2021 to protect citizens’ access to information & meaningful participation in the democratic process. Despite the passage of 2 years @dpr_gob failed to implement the Act.
Neither established the Balochistan Information Commission nor the designation of Public Information Officers (#PIOs). Provincial departments are reluctant to respond to information requests & do not comply with the Act.
Without the appeal forum, citizens are deprived to have #AccessToInformation. We (citizens, civil society & #journalists) demand to establish Balochistan Information Commission (#BIC) without further delay. @iFarahAzeemShah

one more rumination for tonight, I think. this one is about something that's been called "contrarianism"—a word that's been coined in some attempt to describe the perplexing behavior of celebrity 'influencers', specially the more toxic ones like @mtaibbi and @mattyglesias.

but the behavior is probably quite general. just about *all* of the #journalist and #media figures who have some privileged access to the press and to mass audience have learned to behave in this way on @Twitter and social media: they run away from challenging questions.

the blue-checked "influencers" of the @LPDonovan / @StevenTDennis / @JakeSherman sort (I've picked three names almost at random) are the people who have *benefited the most* from the #Internet-ization of #journalism. social media has amplified their social privilege.

#Journalists use social media platforms to pursue audience engagement.

They have learned these platforms carry personal & professional risks eg accusations of political bias can lead to being sacked, as well as trolling, doxing, & threats of violence.…
This is especially true for women journalists and journalists of color. This study examines the extent to which newsroom managers help—or hinder—their journalists when it comes to navigating the risks and challenges of audience engagement via social media platforms.
It draws on interviews with 37 reporters, editors, publishers, freelancers, and social media/audience engagement managers from throughout the U.S. about their experiences with and thoughts about their newsroom’s social media policies.

एक पत्रकार के तौर पर तय करें कि आप क्राइम रिपोर्टिंग कर रहे हैं या इन्वेस्टीगेटिव रिपोर्टिंग। सबसे पहले दोनों में फ़र्क समझें।

एक क्राइम रिपोर्टर के तौर पर आप केवल, पुलिस की कार्रवाई-जांच और केस की फर्दर प्रोसीडिंग-अपडेट रिपोर्ट करेंगे। आप पीड़ित और आरोपी के बयान पर रिपोर्टिंग कर सकते हैं। आप अपराध रिपोर्ट करेंगे।

Unredacted 'Fauci emails' proving no scientists had any idea about the virus and no inclination of any cover-up, quite the opposite actually, they investigated thoroughly the idea of a #lableak.

I hope this will be a lesson to many in the media who extended a lot of false goodwill to the fantasies of rank #conspiracists over the statements of professional virologists just doing their work.

The fact that they double down after being proven wrong is just 🚩🚩🚩
As I said previously, and repeatedly, there is no place in polite society for people who profit from #lies, who push harmful conspiracy myths that expose scientists to harassment, threats, and #stochastic terrorism

Any journalist who still decides to #amplify them is accountable

Why the FTX drama is not the end of crypto, but rather a beginning. 🧵

(1/21) For those who don't know me, I guess I should start by just saying I've been in this space for a while. I was here before #MtGox imploded. I met Vitalik before #Eth was a thing. I remember exactly..
(2/21) exactly where I was when #Bitcoin hit $100 & $1000. I remember when the engine driving Bitcoin was a philosophical and ideological one, when the space was a bizarre hybrid of gold bugs, libertarians, anarchists, hackers & OG #cryptography evangelists.
(3/21) I've been here for a while & the recent/ongoing drama involving FTX & #SBF is probably the worst I've seen to date.

Lately we've all heard the same question. "Do you think the FTX debacle is the end of #crypto?". I understand the question, but as somebody who knows...

A short thread on #ClickBait

There is considerable controversy surrounding things #journalists print today. Yes, journalism has always attracted controversy. It should. There is no way around it. This is most true with stories on sensitive subjects.
Think about it. We outrage when such stories are true, and we outrage when such stories are false. We should. We outrage more when misled--even more if baited. Clickbait and misleading titles are the bane of good journalism. I want to focus on this point.
We all know this but it bears repeating. Most journalists don't write titles for their articles. Editors do. Many an article I wrote has a title I would never write. But, I sympathize with editors. They have an impossible job.

In case you don't know my story, I developed #MECFS #POTS etc. from a virus 8 years ago.

When the pandemic started, I reached out to @itsbodypolitic in May 2020 at the first indication of #LongCovid to help. I would never imagine the sheer number of people it would affect.
Now today, I have close friends from @itsbodypolitic at the #MillionsMissing protest in Washington DC who developed #MECFS from Long COVID. I am devastated that millions more people now suffer from this terrible disease which we have no treatment for.

I am angry because this suffering need to be addressed appropriately. The government failed to act before the pandemic, for the 2.5 million of us with #MECFS and now they have failed to act for the many, many more with #LongCovid who have joined us.

In the last week, not only 27 Opposition MPs have been suspended (4 in #LokSabha, 23 in #RajyaSabha), but as many as 97 Questions asked by these MPs have been DELETED & Govt has avoided answering these Qs!
There is NO provision in RULES to permit such deletion of Qs!
This dubious practice, which isn't permitted by Rules & has no logic, was first noticed in #MonsoonSession 2020, repeated in Monsoon Session 2021, Winter Session 2021 and now happening again in current #MonsoonSession2022.
See our earlier #Thread-
In the current #MonsoonSession, following is the tally of Qs 'DELETED'. Also, see pics of some Deleted Qs.
- 11 Qs asked by 4 suspended Opposition MPs in #LokSabha
- 86 Qs asked by 23 suspended Opposition MPs in #RajyaSabha

For every #SriLankan who saw protestors at #GGG being assaulted by the #military & said "if they are doing this in #Colombo, can you imagine what happened to #Tamils in the #North & #East?" ENOUGH! There is no need to imagine, we know! 1/8
There are enough videos, films, still photographs, eye witness testimony, survivor testimony #UN reports, & other expert reports to clearly lay out what happened in #Mullivaikkal & before, was #CrimesAgainstHumanity, #WarCrimes & #Genocide. You chose not to believe! 2/8
There are 100's of people who died getting that information of #WarCrimes out of the #WarZone. Too many #journalists & #activists were killed, attacked, jailed, #tortured & exiled trying to disseminate that information, because you chose not to believe. 3/8

Democracy is at stake in the midterms. The media must convey that.

We journalists have to try harder and find new ways to convey to voters how badly things could turn out

Good article about journalistic responsibility by @Sulliview…
"thanks to a paranoid, delusional and potentially violent new strain in our nation’s politics, Americans may not be able to count on future elections being conducted fairly — or the results of fair elections being accepted."

"most of the Republican Party publicly touts the LIE that Donald Trump won the 2020 election but that the vote was rigged and victory stolen from him.
