Here is a 7+ minute video, from ABC, of Trump calling on multiple senior aides to defend him and vouch for his 'calm' demeanor in the infrastructure meeting with Democrats after Nancy Pelosi said that he'd had a temper tantrum.
This reminds me of the cabinet meetings where they all take turns praising Trump. Because this is totally normal in a democracy!
Facebook just announced that it will NOT remove the faked video of Pelosi because “there’s no rule that items posted to Facebook must be true.” Then what the Russians did in 2016 was fine, and Facebook won’t lift a finger to fix the problem. Warren is right. Break em up.
When it comes to Trump's lies, the media would better serve the public by focusing on quality rather than quantity, writes @SteveKrak. Trump's willingness to stretch the truth is known. Let's focus on what he's lying about, not how often he does it: https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-lies-lot-media-must-focus-what-he-s-lying-ncna1009986 …
.@NBCNewsTHINK It’s not an either/or situation. Dear Members of the News Media: you can focus on the number of lies Trump tells, AND take a deep dive into what he’s lying about.
How quickly we forget. The whole edited/doctored Nancy Pelosi video thing isn't exactly new. It's ripped from the "Hillary Clinton is sick" handbook of 2016. There were tons of videos edited to make her look ill then used as ammo by far-right "experts" https://www.wired.com/2016/09/rogue-doctors-spreading-right-wing-rumors-hillarys-health/ …
I haven’t forgotten. Please get the #fluvaccine to help protect against pneumonia. Please don’t fall for edited/doctored/fake videos, particularly if they’re made or amplified by the same people/outlets who’ve claimed my mother @HillaryClinton has been dying for years.
Is there not a single Republican who will rise to object to the President of the United States trafficking in fake videos of the Speaker of the House? Do you have that little respect for the House? Do you have that little self respect? Are you all amoral cowards?
“By my calculation, the altered video has been slowed by almost 75% introducing a significant distortion in her speech," Hany Farid, a professor at UC Berkeley and expert in digital forensics and image analysis, told CNN. Via @donie
If publishing classified information is a form of espionage then journalists everywhere are at risk. The #Asssange prosecution is a grave threat to #PressFreedom. https://cpj.org/2019/05/julian-assange-charged-espionage-wikileaks.php …
.@pressfreedom @Joelcpj He didn’t just publish classified information. He hacked into a DoD computer system. #TheHackingIsThePoint We’re not dealing with a situation where he simply published information sent to him from some source at DoD. He helped hack into their system.
Recently in @CJR I argued that the prosecution of leakers represents a much greater threat to #pressfreedom than Trump's angry rhetoric. The #Assange indictment drives this point home. https://www.cjr.org/watchdog/daniel-hale-intercept-leakers.php …
