So I just read this op-ed in WSJ. It’s being passed around my disinfo lists but obviously this Hopkins doctor has credentials. It makes me wonder. Hope @ScottGottliebMD @CDCDirector Dr Fauci address on Sunday shows. @margbrennan @chucktodd @FoxNewsSunday…
ps it’s so refreshing to see Dr Gottlieb will be on CBS, Fauci will be on NBC, CNN and FOX (good way to maximize American audience). If the goal is to ask tough questions and get good health info to the public, this is how you do it. 🙏🏽
And note my point above is not that I want the POV spread. I’m just flagging a whole lot of people read WSJ and will spread it so if the opinion is suspect then it would be good to hear this from experts.
@DebraMessing Great news. @MeetThePress asked the question ⬆️ and I would go with Dr Fauci’s counsel here.

Beyond Cory’s great thread, I have one other comment no press seem to want to dig into. Facebook is a menace to society yet they’re being covered as if they’re a respectable actor. Everything about their pulling out of Australia is hostile and a PR stunt. Why not ask question /1
Why did they pull out Wednesday? Prior to law passing. Here is what still passes. Facebook gets designated. A pub starts negotiation. 90 days. If no deal, baseball arbitration. Price determined. And still then Facebook could exit market. So why do it last week? /2
One news exec speculated Facebook did it last week because Google’s deal with News Corp was dominating press that day and maybe they could do it quietly. But do you know what the problem is with this hypothesis??? /3

Aargh - in two tweets. This is a terrible move missing precisely on nuance we need in Congress.
(1/2) CableTV : This speech whether on the web or cable is protected from government by 1A. Importantly, it's also subject to more speech (counter-speech and public criticism). Image
(2/2) Social Media: It's critically important to make this distinction between concerns with Facebook and YouTube that use algorithmic amplification to micro-target content to individuals, outside the public square, with very little transparency or ability to fact check. 2/2 Image
On the social media example, the platforms provide the velocity and reach. I would argue OAN and Newsmax wouldn't even be a thing if it weren't for their clips being spread on social. YouTube is what made OAN, NewsMax, Epoch Times, Russia Today into household names. /3

Ok, Brian knows I’m a loyal watcher but Australia segment was aargh. The law is not about links. The term link tax is loaded based on 2 platforms being described as having links to news sites. Links could go away and they would still have to pay. It’s public policy to move $.
ps @s_guilbeault was great and I endorse Canada’s leadership here, too. Hopefully they model off Australia vs a straight tax or something. Australia is built off antitrust findings of the two companies and involves more than $. Additionally...
it uses a market-based solution to bring the parties to the table including baseball arbitration to avoid slow regulation effects. And the law absolutely helps small publishers!!! It gives them collective bargaining they don’t currently have!!!!

I believe history will prove this org structure has caused more harm in the world than near anything in modern history. This BuzzFeed report is a must-read. /1…
First, the report builds on previous reporting by @RMac18 @CraigSilverman and colleagues along with other news outlets including notably the WSJ who has covered the political influences at Facebook deeply both here and abroad. /2
Report also spends time on content policy team reporting thru lobbying executives. Zuckerberg in leaked transcripts has said who helped him w shooting and looting “mistake” and it matched this chart (Sandberg, Clegg, Bickert, Kaplan). New sources confirm problems here. /3

Sunday shows time, lots of topic medical people scheduled again 🙏🏽. First up, @CNNSotu. @DanaBashCNN did a really strong job pressing Dr Fauci with questions including schools, grandparents, duration of precautions and (he’ll also be on Meet the Press and Fox News Sunday).
Wow. I wish everyone could see this week’s @FoxNewsSunday if you stop and think about audience reached. Wallace did a remarkable interview on climate change with Gates posing doubts of his audience. @BillGates was a gracious, smart, transparent messenger, glad he made the time.
Then Wallace had Dr Fauci - recall for long time prior administration wouldn’t even let him on TV. Again, great interview. Value when Wallace presents conflicting video clips to his audience (being spread through right wing media) so that Dr Fauci can reconcile and clarify it.

1) Facebook wants regulation...but not regulation that hurts its biz model.
2) Facebook thinks it’s anticompetitive of Apple to block FB from surveilling data across web/apps despite FB getting that data through deception and anticompetitive action according to German court.
3) Facebook wants to clean up toxic sludge yet blocks the most valued information when it could cost them money and power 4) Facebook wants to be neutral but curries favor with the government in power
5) Facebook wants to avoid content which is hate speech or dangerous to society yet refuses to have a conversation about algorithmic amplification and hugs free expression as a virtue.
