🚨EXCLUSIVE 🚨: Rupert Murdoch's Fox rocked by one of the biggest financial penalties in TV history after an arbitrator concludes top execs gave false testimony to cover up a "reprehensible" fraud. And there's MUCH more... hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/fox-ro…
One day after an appeals court blesses the vertical integration between AT&T and Time Warner, the exec producers & stars of "Bones" go to court to affirm a $179 MILLION award imposed because Fox's studio arm was cutting sweetheart deals with Fox's distribution arms.
The arbitrator's decision has the potential to upend the economics of streaming hit shows, and in particular, leaves Hulu's fate greatly uncertain.

Note on possible #IAF #airstrike today. There is NO SUCH THING as "terror camps". These aren't concentrated like schools or colleges. These are disaggregated and dispersed AT ALL TIMES. If targets were struck they would be military targets
.2n this IAF Embraer 145 AWACS was patrolling since the early hours. Watchers know this is an unusual pattern, although it did come close to the area of the alleged strike, it patrolled South as well. The plane has since returned to base. Source: @zone5aviation #IAF #airstrike

The society whose God is not beyond starts but within,
whose Saints are revered, not stoned or hung on the cross,
whose Scriptures glorify human beings as 'अमृतस्य पुत्रा’, = ‘Sons of immortality’...

#MustRead @NewYorker: China’s Bizarre Program to Keep Activists in Check

newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…

People the state considers troublemakers may be sent to jail—or sent on vacation.

bei lüyou—“to be touristed”—joins passive voice phrases describing things PRC gov’t does to people
Chinese #netizen slang: "whenever law enforcement frames people, or otherwise conscripts them into an activity, the prefix bei is used to indicate the passive tense. Hence: bei loushui (to be tax-evaded), bei zisha (to be suicided), bei piaochang (to be johned), and so on."
"In a joke [Chinese liberals—educated urbanites] liked about the 2016 U.S. election, a bunch of eunuchs are so appalled by the bawdy quarrels among the married folk that they congratulate themselves: 'How fortunate we are to be castrated!'"

Talk about the internally displaced in India, and you will only hear about Kashmiri Pandits. No one even knows about the sheer number of people displaced in Mumbai 92-93 and elsewhere (and I'm not even talking of the mass murder and sexual violence). Many left never to return
While in the Middle East, I met folks who left the city in 1992-93 and said they'd never return
Along with Mumbai, the worst affected in 1992 was Surat. The tales of sexual violence and barbarity from there still numb the mind. Hindutva's dance of death started much before 2002.

2018: My Year of Reading. A thread that follows my reading journey from January to December. Every book I've read with a 280 character review. Tagged a few folks who influence the shape of my literary life 📚 #THEBOOKCHAT #DisruptTexts #TeachLivingPoets 📚
1. Never Let Me Go; Kazuo Ishiguro: A supremely crafted narrative begins unassumingly, but quickly reveals a different notion of childhood innocence and coming of age. The conversational tone fooled me into thinking I was walking into a world I understood. Nobel worthy.
2. We Should All Be Feminists; Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: As an author who breathes eloquence, Adichie doesn't disappoint. This short book/long essay is insightful and logical and human. If we want to raise boys without the toxic masculinity, this is on the required reading list.

1. El @nytimes publica un artículo ANÓNIMO de un alto cargo del Gobierno de Trump. Es uno de los textos más alucinantes que he leído nunca. El autor dice que él y muchos de sus colegas se han conjurado para trabajar contra el presidente
nyti.ms/2CyF3Jh?smid=n…
2. Al principio del artículo, el @nytimes admite que publicar un artículo anónimo es una circunstancia excepcional pero dice que conoce la identidad del autor y subraya que el texto aporta información importante. También invita a sus lectores a hacer preguntas sobre el proceso
3. Estas frases resumen el artículo.

"Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them".

CSIRO CEO on @GBRFoundation Chair Dr Schubert:
“Better we help than he burns millions on overheads."

Good on CSIRO for wanting to stop this private foundation from wasting millions of public dollars.
Turnbull should have just given the money to the CSIRO in the first place.
Under @TurnbullMalcolm - CSIRO is now reduced to “working on (the GBRF Chair) in the background”

What a great idea. Let’s get our public sector agencies running around to lobby a small private foundation chairman in order to get public money for public science. #reefgate

"Trump and my nephew [Stephen Miller] both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human."
Powerful and moving #mustRead

"The Glossers [Miller's maternal lineage] came to the U.S. just a few years [starting in 1903] before the fear and prejudice of the 'America First' nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees."
"Had Wolf-Leib [Glosser] waited, his family would likely have been murdered by the Nazis along with all but seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in Antopol."

This week, two pivotal pieces were published that everyone #mustread. @HenMazzig and @yumcoconutmilk's pieces, side by side, truly represent WMFA's raison d'être & demand for inclusivity. The divisive tendencies of certain social justice leaders deeply harms all of us. 1/n
In @yumcoconutmilk's powerful piece, "Memo To Shaun King From A Black Jew: Stop Dividing Our Communities," Nylah explains how @ShaunKing's construct of US vs THEM is detrimental to social justice. The path towards progress demands unity, not division. 2/n forward.com/opinion/402683…
In @HenMazzig's equally powerful piece, "As a Queer Jew of Color, I Find Tamika Mallory’s Latest Comments Particularly Heartbreaking," Hen examines how @lsarsour & @TamikaDMallory strive towards division. These are not true social justice leaders. 3/n tabletmag.com/scroll/263721/…"

Dear Black Americans,

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the #BlackPantherMovie was not made with you in mind 😢

Everything about Disney’s “Blackest Production Ever” was strategic, including its target audience:

‘Continental Africans’
We all know that Disney is great when it comes to creating enchanting cinematography, so we can’t be too hard on ourselves for being easily spellbound by the rich blackness displayed through the lens of Ryan Coogler.
However, it’s been a full week now, so I’m hoping we can have an adult conversation about the true purpose, and strategic intent behind Disney’s $200 million global sensation, Black Panther.

#Breaking BADABOUM puissance MILLE #Flynn l'ancien conseiller sécurité nationale de #Trump est inculpé pour parjure devant le FBI et mis en garde à vue par #Mueller. RT+1
2) Les informations sont encore parcellaires: #Flynn est incriminé pour des fausses déclarations répétées au #FBI quant à ses relations avec la #Russie, on est donc au coeur de l'enquête #Mueller sur #Trump et pas en périphérie...
3) #Flynn aurait menti délibérément et consciemment en particulier sur ses entretiens avec l'ambassadeur de #Russie Kislyak. On peut penser au RDV avec Kushner le 1er décembre 2016 et aux coups de fil sur les sanctions le 29 décembre 2016. #Trump

En cette fin de semaine, petit point de situation sur les enquêtes #Trump/#Russie dont les développements importants ET visibles- l'investigation #Mueller est vraiment cadenassée- sont passés inaperçus pour cause de scandales sexuels...#thread
2) La grosse info de la semaine sur #Trump/#Russie est tombée à mon sens hier soir. Le procureur #Mueller a assigné mi-octobre la campagne #Trump pour qu'elle fournisse les documents sur la #Russie d'1 douzaine de ses responsables. wsj.com/articles/speci…
3) Cette assignation de l'enquête #Mueller est certes la 1ère injonction adressée à la campagne #Trump mais elle est surtout capitale par sa signification. #Trump et ses équipes ont toujours dit collaborer pleinement avec #Mueller: pourquoi assigne-t-il alors?

2)Ce nouvel essai serait très logique du point de vue de la #CoréeduNord.#Trump l'a menacé,donc le régime de Kim Jong Un veut le dissuader.
