Because she's *totally* for accountability. (Not.)
You might as well draw CROSS HAIRS on each of the people named here. A BIG NEON SIGN that says "THIS is the Alex Jones. YOU MUST BAN THEM!" archive.is/p5j40
I had other shit to do today.
That statement being the report is PRETTY BLOODY MISLEADING w/ regards to his political leanings.
this report = an attack on the livelihoods of right-wing YouTubers
What's going to happen:
1.) More media pieces propping it up
2.) shifting that overton window
3.) Lobbying Google to take the channels down
If there's no pushback against this report? If you treat this with indifference? That's giving them a permission slip to keep tightening that noose around what's deemed "Acceptable."
It’s an active attack against the natural political balance of our society. An effort to fuck up YOUR world. MY world. OUR world.
It’s your fight too.
See for yourself. A Reporter at @CNBCTech.
She likes the report's suggestion on how to attack YouTube channel monetization.
His job is to basically decide what counts as newsworthy.
And call it a hunch 🤔, but my gut tells me he's keen on the whole "EXTREMISM EPIDEMIC SWEEPS YOUTUBE" type of narrative.

Because I'm gonna go through and discuss the contents of it. datasociety.net/wp-content/upl…
Sure enough. Something did. It hit me LIKE A TRUCK. And it became clear to me that I NEED to go over this damn report.
Yeah I'm pissed off at you for that. I have no words to describe how angry that kind of an attack makes me.
And after I'm done talking about your report I'm going to do my best to pretend someone as hateful as you doesn't even exist.
> "one commenter wrote."
They COULD'VE and SHOULD'VE given more examples there. Especially since we're still in the introduction of the report and she's trying to establish overall points.
But it's not enough to assuage the discrepancy I pointed out in the previous tweet.
Such a title could (and should) apply to left-wing ideology.
By not doing that they're failing to deliver on the "we wanna make the world safe from radicalization" front.
Is not doing a very good job.
(Yes! That does sound bananas. But that's what this report is trying to say here!)
According to the report, the end result of this hypothetical scenario is @benshapiro 's fault.
you can't in one breath punish people for interacting with folks on other parts of the political spectrum,
and in the next breath imply that THOSE SAME PEOPLE act in a hivemind mentality where they only see the world in a preferred political light.
I work for the people. And this Paypal arrangement lets me be free to discuss what folks want to hear and learn about. Without the red tape bullshit. paypal.me/nickmon1112
So, it's only fair people know about the financial ties that Data & Society organization has with George Soros.
If that's the angle Becky is going with, so be it.
You can see IN THIS VERY THREAD a coordinated effort by mainstream media outlets to censor and silence opposing viewpoints.
They are using this report as a jumping off point. To frame things as a PROBLEM YouTube “MUST” solve.
I could go on about that. But it'd derail.
So if you wanna see more MSM fumbling around in the dark, here's a thread about CNN doing that. twitter.com/i/moments/1036…
What the hell were folks like @RubinReport SUPPOSED to do, Rebecca? Lie to the public? Is that what you want? What alternatives are available here?
> "these testimonials cannot be fact-checked"
I THOUGHT PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSED TO LISTEN AND BELIEVE, REBECCA. ISN'T THAT WHAT THE OH-SO-HOLY CHURCH OF THE TOLERANT LEFT HAS PREACHED?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT?🤔
FUN is seriously baked into the heart of YouTube as a website. It may come as a shock. But people prefer to enjoy themselves online.
Because I don't see Rebecca laying out any sort of "legitimate and robust counterargument" either.
But even so, the paper is too brief in key critical areas where more elaboration and explanation were vital. (that's the point of a long-form research paper, btw. Taking time to explain FULLY)
I put more effort into this damn thread.
If you want to help me out so I can continue to do stuff like this in the future?
your $$$ support via PayPal would be wonderful ^__^! Thank you. paypal.me/nickmon1112
