Please permit me a thread:

Glenn @ggreenwald went on Fox & told his future bunk-buddy in hell, @tuckercarlson that in so many words, he's concerned that ambiguous videos were being seen as immutable evidence of events. For maybe the 2nd time, GG and I were close to agreement.
I can't believe I'm saying it, but I wish I'd taken @ggreenwald's tack. It's my main issue with #covingtonGate. I'm terrified digital media is so gameable, society will soon be unable to tell real from fake, relevant from irrelevant. And both scoundrels & enemies are thrilled.
It doesn't matter what this episode of "As The Twitter Turns" was even about. There will be another one just like it coming shortly. And bad actors are learning how to weaponize ever-more innocent OR toxic events and narratives. And very soon we will have a HUGE new problem…

HOLY FUCK! Trump is running Build the Wall commercials— on @CNN! ! With
some Rambo narrating. When in the hell did this start????

It ends with: "I'm Donald Trump and I approved this message."

I got chills. Seriously. This is coming off the rails, folks.
@CNN What matters about this ad is the context. This isn't promoting an existing program (I don't believe Obama even made an ad for ACA).

This is promoting a private interest; a personal obsession. One that he's shut down our entire govt to force us to pay for. Let that sink in.
@CNN Of course it was probably campaign money. None of that matters. What matters is that this is more evidence that this media-obsessed lunatic is pushing a private war against brown people that we're all supposed to pay for, simply because @annCoulter despises them.
