Apesar de muito se falar sobre a #vazajato (VJ) na Internet, esse conteúdo não chega a boa parte da população e é ótimo que esteja na TV aberta (@rodaviva: ). Porém o tempo de @ggreenwald e dos espectadores poderia ter sido melhor aproveitado, segue o fio:
Diversas perguntas (intencionalmente ou não) preparam o terreno para que o espectador acredite num cenário falacioso (isso vai ser mais efetivo em quem não acompanhou a VJ de perto desde o começo), criando pré-indisposição com o trabalho de @ggreenwald (independente da resposta).
Da mesma forma q existem péssimos títulos de notícias tb existem péssimas perguntas, q influenciam tendenciando o entendimento. E qto + visibilidade o trabalho tem, maior o impacto dessas mentiras. Em época de #fakenews #posttruth #deepfakes, jornalistas deveriam evitar isso.

What if I told you that this OPM aide’s tweet (location & time stamp) demonstrates that during #tailsend, @michelle_muscat either (a) outswam not only @MichaelPhelps sprinting but a shark at a steady 9 kph for a gruelling 9 km or (b) cut her 14 km swim short (by ~7 km)? #talltale
Hope that caught your attention. This thread will sum up the evidence that @Michelle_muscat’s claim that she swam 14 kilometres for #tailsend is absolute rubbish that deserves to be framed alongside Kim Jong Il’s claim he invented the hamburger. 2/
In case you are wondering why this deserves attention, after all Michelle did claim she swam 14 km “for charity”, I have one word for you - truth.

You should always defend it or the lies tend to add up. 3/

Dear @arlenparsa, Thank you for the inspirational and comforting tweet #CovingtonCatholic #Magateen. Basic stuff is falling apart all around us and we are looking depraved on so many fronts. It’s nice to see that we have choices.
You have shown us that there is a high road, a smarter road, and we are free to take it. #Media impose a certain behavioral framework, but we can choose to engage at a higher level like you did. It takes more work and more commitment, but it’s ultimately so much more crucial.
We found the #CNN coverage disgraceful & unprofessional. What these #kids did was unquestionably reprehensible. But they are simply ignorant at this stage of their development. Are they the racist bigots of tomorrow? More than likely, but one may still hold out #hope for them.
