@[email protected] I saw that too.. but the origin of the photo is immaterial. The fact is that there are still tons of people detained and children getting separated from their parents in ICE camps and now they have to deal with the spread of Covid-19 in those camps. Anyone who yells #fakenews because the photo isn't precisely what it claims to be while ignoring the bigger message is an idiot.
 
Your racist, syphilitic uncle who believes and retweets crazy conspiracy theories? No! It's the "president" of the USA! The guy who controls the world's largest nuclear arsenal!

Twitter labels Trump video tweet as manipulated media, continuing its crackdown on misinformation


The label marks the fourth time Twitter has added labels to the president’s tweets.

Twitter on Thursday evening took the rare step of appending a warning label to one of President Trump’s tweets after the company determined it violated its policies on manipulated media.

The president tweeted a doctored version of a popular video that went viral in 2019, which showed two toddlers, one black and one white, hugging. In the version Trump shared, the video has been edited with ominous music and a fake CNN headline that says, “Terrified toddler runs from racist baby.”

“Racist baby probably a Trump voter,” the headline then says in a subsequent screen.

[Would you trust someone this idiotic with a nuclear arsenal? Or even a bb gun?]

The video then cuts to the original clip of the children hugging, and then cuts to the message “America is not the problem. Fake news is.”

[The recursive irony, of course, is that the claim Fake news is a serious problem is in fact true. Hell, fake news fools the POTUS on a daily basis, so there's a good chance fake news will cause WWIII and the end of all life on Earth. That's a real problem.]

[And then there are the implications for media generally:]

The label is the latest flash point in an increasingly contentious debate over tech companies’ responsibility to police falsehoods and hoaxes spread by politicians on their platforms. It could worsen an already tense relationship between Silicon Valley and Trump, who has escalated his claims in recent weeks that social media titans are biased against conservatives.

Trump has also criticized the companies — particularly Twitter — for censoring him. Meanwhile, social media has become a major way he communicates with constituents, with more than 82 million followers on Twitter alone and missives that come day and night.

[This shit is deadly serious. For every one of us who laughs at bullshit like this, there are ten Trump followers who take it as absolute truth and who see it as another reason to arm themselves to the teeth and Kill the Liberal Elite! Destroy Antifa! For the Dear Leader! To wit:]

The video had received roughly 3.8 million views and more than 75,000 retweets at the time of Twitter’s label.

[What is to be done with a populace who have been conditioned to suspend all reason in favor of blindly following their Dear Leader? What does one do with a country when 40% of the voting populace belongs to a death cult?]

George Floyd protests: Misleading footage and conspiracy theories spread online | BBC News

Protests sparked by the death in police custody of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis have spread across the US and to other countries. They've been documented in videos, images and posts on social media.
But some of these aren't what they claim to be. The BBC's anti-disinformation team has been tracking misleading videos and conspiracy theories about the protests, which have been circulating online.
So, here's what to look out for - and avoid - on your social media feeds.
#justice #law #BlackLivesMatter #FakeNews #ConspiracyTheory
 
It's not as successful as operation "Let them speak" on #FakeNews though. Probably because it turns out after each attempt to make Trump look stupid that it's the fake news operations looking stupid because they either took him out of context or didn't understand him at all. Four years of trying and trying haven't made any difference apart from a steady rise of his job approval.

China coronavirus: Misinformation spreads online about origin and scale | BBC News

More than 100 people have now been killed by the coronavirus.
The number of confirmed cases has risen to 4,500 with places like Hong Kong announcing plans to cut travel to mainland China to halt the spread.
But not only has the virus spread around China and abroad, so too has misinformation.
Numerous conspiracies have appeared since the outbreak - not to mention videos about bat soup.

This is a photo of a Twitter? post, another route of mass hysteria #fakenews. Where is the link to the test results, eg; by LG chromatography or spectral analysis, etc. This doesn't smell like meat, more like #fakenews. Here are articles by both left and right American media (depending on which side of the fence you sit) about this https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/burger-king-impossible-whopper-conspiracy-man-boob.print and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/voraciously/wp/2019/12/26/dear-men-theres-no-evidence-that-eating-impossible-whoppers-will-give-you-breasts/ partially debunking the claims.

To break down the argument rationally (a Doctor should have seen this from miles away) the argument given here is that the protein is derived from #Soy, soy proteins from the soy bean and soy have isoflavones (an oestrogen like compound) and therefore large quantities of #oestrogen like compounds in the product. The first point or call is that the fake news advert states the whopper has #Estrogen, this is the first alarm, it does not have estrogen! it has #isoflavones (soy isoflavones). Now, just thinking logically, Asian men have been eating vast quantities of soy product for centuries... and no, they don't have man boobs! (see #tradeware https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China%E2%80%93United_States_trade_war and the soy bean aspect that China wants American soy beans) In fact the real reasons American men may be getting man boobs is because they eat too many burgers in the first place.

For more of a real argument, how about all the synthetic oestrogen like and growth hormones added to cattle in real American meat? The reason why the #EU has banned American feminisation meat, the #Beefhormone controversy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_hormone_controversy see the hormone chemical called estradiol-17β.

Once upon a time...

My first published research was a look at the NY Times vs. the_ NY Post_ comparing how they covered a near-disaster, a crack discovered in the Harrisburg / "Three Mile Island" nuclear plant. The Times cited government team response and status, while the Post had a large picture of a goat which I'll never forget, "Mrs. Louse H-- comforts sick goat". Which provided facts? Aroused fears?

So fast forward to now. The New York Times has a banner headline about impeachment, and the historic proceedings.
Whereas the NY Post featured a critique of Pelosi's wardrobe, calling her "swamp mistress".

Some things change. Apparently the Fox/Murdoch/Post school of "news" headlines and "fact" presentation has not, much.

Who knew? Yet I can't really say I'm surprised. Sad that the choice now is to mock conscientious leaders or focus on serious issues.

Hier werden ja immer öfter Beiträge von #naturalnews weitergesagt... für die, die es noch nicht wissen:
Natural News (formerly NewsTarget, which is now a separate sister site) is a website for the sale of various dietary supplements, promotion of alternative medicine, controversial nutrition and health claims, scientific #fakenews, and various #conspiracytheories, such as #chemtrails, #chemophobicclaims (including the purported dangers of fluoride in drinking water, anti-perspirants, laundry detergent, monosodium glutamate, aspartame), and purported health problems caused by allegedly "toxic" ingredients in vaccines, including the now-discredited link to autism. It has also spread conspiracy theories about the Zika virus allegedly being spread by genetically modified mosquitoes and purported adverse effects of genetically modified crops, as well as the farming practices associated with and foods derived from them.
The site's founder, Michael Allen "Mike" Adams, was the subject of controversy after posting a blog entry implying a call for violence against proponents of GMO foods, and then allegedly creating another website with a list of names of alleged supporters. He has been accused of using "pseudoscience to sell his lies". Adams has described vaccines as “medical child abuse”.

British parliament presses Facebook on letting politicians lie in ads | TechCrunch

In yet another letter seeking to pry accountability from Facebook, the chair of a British parliamentary committee has pressed the company over its decision to adopt a policy on political ad that supports flagrant lying.

In the letter Damian Collins, chair of the DCMS committee, asks the company to explain why it recently took the decision to change its policy regarding political ads — “given the heavy constraint this will place on Facebook’s ability to combat online disinformation in the run-up to elections around the world”.
Why does Facebook even have to think about whether to ban politician's lies? Is it, perhaps because they don't think they can recognise them consistently?

Low grade "journalists" and internet mob attack RMS with lies. In-depth review.

Low grade "journalism" is making another victim. Philosopher and activist Richard Matthew Stallman is having his ideas distorted and his writings taken out of context just so a "journalist" can get re-tweets from people that didn't even read their article.
Now to what actually happened. In chronological order. (Not as long as it seems. Most of it are quotations from original sources because I'm not an incompetent "journalist".)

Could ‘fake text’ be the next global political threat? | The Guardian

Every day, millions of these unremarkable conversations unfold on Reddit, spanning from cooking techniques to geopolitics in the Western Sahara to birds with arms. But what made this conversation about egg whites noteworthy is that it was not taking place among people, but artificial intelligence (AI) bots.

"A top Russian official claimed local authorities had been fudging mortality statistics in an effort to chase 'good indicators'."

"Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova told medical officials on Tuesday that population numbers are declining 'catastrophically' amid falling birth rates and under-reported death rates, state-run news agency TASS reported."
