#Hanauer #Terrornacht, #Araber-Clans, zehn Toten & Tobias Rathjen (‘nur’ ein Mord & Selbstmord?), politische Korrektheit, Massenschlägerei #Turken-#Kurden, #Salafisten, Sozialbetrug und #Kriminalität durch Familienclans.
#HanauShooting, Tobias Rathjen vermoorde wellicht zijn moeder en pleegde zelfmoord, de schietpartij zelf was gepleegd door een Arabische clan vlgs moslims uit Hanau. 🤔

@thehill @jsolomonReports If you are a #media #fakenews #propaganda #MSM #journalism researcher this thread will be of interest to you. Or if you just want to describe the smell of bullshit.
@thehill @jsolomonReports The first thing to note is that the audit itself is the headline. Right? The media gets to seize on this and say, in effect, that Solomon is somehow in trouble.

Regardless of the findings of the audit, it's a smear. Self-fulfilling.

An Anthropologist following Gandhi (2)

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

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.)…
@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.…
@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.

As a newscaster, you must understand that a news story is still a story - it has a beginning, it has a middle and there’s an ending.
You must tell the listener THAT story.

Also, every news story or bulletin is different, hence your delivery or reading must be different.
For example, you cannot read a story on state budget and one on a flooding disaster with the same tone - there has to be a difference in the delivery.

I also read up on something several years ago - learn to emphasize on the right words.
Sometimes, newscasters get carried away by the sound of their voices and they end up stressing the wrong words in their bulletins.
When you emphasize on the wrong words, the impact of that story might be lost along the way.

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

An odd thing we have seen in polling since 2016 is the introduction of the MASSIVE Independent sample. For instance, a recent CNN poll was 42% Independents. Turnout in elections has never been nor will it ever be 42%.
To understand why #MediaPolling does this, you need to look at Gallup. In 2016, Trump won Independents by 4 points, yet, according to Gallup, they disapproved of him 2:1 by Inauguration Day - a seismic and impossible shift.

So what is happening here?
Pollsters got caught red-handed and red-faced in 2016 because they were using D+12 to D+16 samples to predict a landslide Hillary victory. To avoid that this time, pollsters have wildly expanded the Independent size and are "hiding" the Dem oversample there.

PROF CHIBITA: An #InauguralLecture is an opportunity to close the gap between the ivory tower & the public square. The Inaugural Lecture is a joyous occasion that allows a University to 'launch' its new Prof with a degree of celebration! 1⃣ #BetweenFreedomAndRegulation
PROF CHIBITA: Under #Museveni, the #Uganda press has had a degree of editorial independence. However, the NRM Govt has been uncompromising with the media when they have published stories deemed to threaten 'public order' & 'national security.' 2⃣ #BetweenFreedomAndRegulation

I have a simple question on polling.

If, in fact, polls are random, WHY is the dramatic oversample ALWAYS on the Democrat side? Why, despite controlling the White House, Senate and large majority of State Houses, do Republicans consistently represent only 24-26% of the sample?
If, in fact, as polls consistently "find," Republicans represent only 24-26% of the electorate and Independents, who clock in at 40% oppose Trump 2:1 - HOW is Trump president?
How is it that Trump won Independents by 4 points in 2016, yet by inauguration day, Gallup all all other pollsters claimed Independents now opposed him 2:1?

Have Independents EVER been 40% of turnout? No, not even close. And yet, they are always sampled as such.

Even better: Before you, in your capacity as editor of an online blog, post something that contradicts the public tenor of many academics, you should look at the evidence that’s right at your fingertips. A few minutes of internet search away. Presented to you via twitter tags.
If you despair when people ask basic diligence of an online blog editor—a bit of simple fact-checking, we might call it—and you yourself are an editor of an online blog, what does your despair tell us?

Helen's comment relies on vague principles to deflect from the specific shape of a particular case. Claire Lehmann routinely protects race science and racist researchers. Her blog has relied on Harpending's white supremacist research many times.

Rampell’s right. Trump gets away w/ lies b/c expectations are so low. He & GOP keep hammering “great economy”—tho only 2% growth—knowing media won’t call them on it. I’d add: Propagandists know media does balance to a fault—media elevate any good news to balance all the very bad.
Yes! Garry @Kasparov63 says it: We’re used to hearing from both sides—Republicans & Democrats, conservatives & liberals. Today it’s simply truth vs. lies. #Media must focus only on facts & STOP GIVING EQUAL TIME TO LIES. The outdated sense of balance is killing our democracy.
@Kasparov63 @crampell @brianstelter @ReliableSources @secupp Republicans exploit media's model of objectivity, which balances w/ equal time to both sides. Balance works when both sides deal in good faith w/ facts. LIES & propaganda are BAD faith! Airing both doesn't balance but elevate lies to level of facts & spreads #propaganda further⚠️

Word on the street is the #FederalReserve is having unheard of overnight lending activities meant to curb the rise of short term rates which are likely skyrocketing due to some big companies cash concerns. Hmm, let’s get some nice Fed conspiracies rolling…
The #FederalReserve is a system of centralized banks that fund the #UnitedStates loans from their own “reserves” w/ US citizen land & labor used as collateral. Most of these banks are held secret and difficult to trace back to to the originating bank.…
A quick look at history and you can see the banking system is a large network of oil barons like the #Rockefellers, #RoyalCrown and various vassal agents of #European banking families like the #Rothschilds. These banks are used to control the economy completely protected.

The intrigue over a 'buried' probe into Russian spying deepened last night amid claims in security circles that it contains references to blackmail fears concerning Boris Johnson. #ReleaseTheRussianReport
One expert witness, who gave evidence to the ISC inquiry, has claimed privately to friends that he believes Boris Johnson was 'compromised' by a Russian businessman on a foreign trip in 2016

Till about 1980s media #MSM in #India was about journalism for change for the better. Activists infiltrated media in 1990s. That point onward media has become a beast that feeds, survives and fattens on human misery and is loath to see things change for the better. 1/n
Left-liberalism of media in #India is a hoax, a clever cover for the far-reaching damage they inflict in pursuit of eyeballs. Prime time 'debate' exemplifies how serious issues are trivialised with uninformed commentary of participants -- grosser the views more the better. 2/n
But blaming #media alone is unfair. It is a reflection of popular mentality that crass and crude slanging matches fetch viewership and fact-free writing bloats readership. The LCD prevails and the dumb chattering classes fashion public discourse and debate in #India 3/n

Thoughts #Thread: Our bi-party political system, #IdentityPolitics & #media brainwashing serves to only be controlled by #billionaires. The same ones that have started wars, stolen trillions of wealth, raped our children & plotted our #extinction.
This is the #truth and we have hard evidence of it. The only way to combat their power of institution is through unifying our individual free will as a group to counter. Our goal is straight forward and pragmatic. Their power is dependent on our complicity.
Remove the complicity and we win. Their crimes against humanity will lead to their consficated wealth. We need to unplug from their matrix, their system of control though our money supply, subverted religions, media & entertainment that turns people into extremists only to divide
