Jubiläum ǀ Gegen den Mainstream — der Freitag
Alternativen und Politik. Der Freitag stellt sich bewusst außerhalb dieses Mainstreams. Darin liegt seine Existenzberechtigung aber auch seine Ohnmacht. Das ist das Paradox linker Gegenöffentlichkeit. Wir können den Strom in seinem Lauf nicht ändern. Aber wir haben einen anderen Blick. Wir nehmen für uns in Anspruch, Denkort der Alternativen zu sein. Damit arbeiten wir an der Rückeroberung des politischen Raumes. Denn der Satz von den Alternativen, die es angeblich nicht gibt, ist das Ende von Politik. Den Vorwurf des Populismus muss man sich dann hin und wieder gefallen lassen. Der Philosoph Ernesto Laclau hat geschrieben, Populismus sei „die Stimme derer, die aus dem System exkludiert sind“. Ein gefährlicher Satz, wenn man nach Dresden blickt,

Iain Duncan Smith sets his sights on mentally ill benefit claimants | News | The National
TOO many people with __“common” mental health problems__ are reliant on the state, [DWP] Iain Duncan Smith claimed yesterday. The Minister was speaking ahead of a major shake-up of the ESA benefit. He claimed the system was too “binary” and argued people with mental health problems would benefit from working. The SNP said his shake-up would force more people into hardship. In the speech, which was behind closed doors, IDS made no policy announcements, rather policy intentions.

Reddit's fate hangs in the balance as revolt against CEO makes waves | Technology | The Guardian
While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! bit.ly/1NMqxYG - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

Greek referendum no vote signals huge challenge to eurozone leaders | Business | The Guardian
It is not clear which view will prevail. The EU mainstream hoped for a yes vote, not only because it would have represented democratic assent to the euro and acceptance of austerity, but also because the Tsipras government would have come under strong pressure to stand down. Negotiations between the two sides have gone nowhere for five months and have become particularly rancorous in the past month as bailout and debt repayment deadlines came and went, // Greece and its people are not too big to fail and but banks it owed money to in Europe (mainly Germany and France) were too big to fail - and to bail out people an inconvenience and nuisance.

A court managed what the complicit UK press couldn't: force GCHQ to tell the truth | Trevor Timm | Comment is free | The Guardian
A UK court vindicated Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing on Friday by ruling that the secrecy surrounding one of the programs he exposed was, in fact, illegal. The decision is more evidence that not only were the Snowden revelations necessary and justified, but are also slowly forcing changes in both US and UK, even as both governments fiercely resist. In a stunning ruling, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) – which oversees (and usually rubber stamps) Britain’s spy agencies – declared that the intelligence-sharing rules between the NSA and GCHQ (Britain’s NSA equivalent and partner-in-crime) governing their mass surveillance program violated UK human rights laws because they were kept secret for so long. [...] Snowden once rightly called the UK media’s coverage of the GCHQ story “a disservice to the public.”

(18) Monitor - "Lügenpresse"? Aus Anlass des Unworts des Jahres hier...
Lügenpresse [...] Ja, es gibt einen journalistischen Mainstream, der immer wieder unkritisch Formulierungen, Deutungen und Propagandalügen übernimmt, weil es im Alltagsgeschäft einfacher ist, im lauen Wind der herrschenden Meinung zu segeln, als sich den Mühen der (Gegen-)Recherche auszusetzen. Ja, es gibt Meinungsführer, die auf dem Ticket der Bertelsmänner, transatlantischer Vereinigungen oder der politischen Stiftungen unterwegs sind. Und ja, es gibt die Scheren in den Köpfen von Journalisten, die jedes journalistische Anecken als Karrierehindernis begreifen. Dass die PR-Strategen aufgerüstet haben, dass die Meinungsvielfalt bspw. im Zeitungsmarkt unter Druck gerät und dass hochgerüstete Anwaltskanzleien kritischen Journalisten zunehmend das Leben schwer machen. All dies gehört zur gesellschaftlichen Realität.

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x.

The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism
AND here the critique http://bit.ly/1tXlqLW & http://bit.ly/1ujpPJ9 // http://bit.ly/V1UxtS // http://bit.ly/1orNN4F // "In failing to provide a semblance of balance to the voices in the piece, this account becomes hopelessly skewed, and becomes little more than a radical feminist propaganda piece. Early on in her essay, Goldberg presents an extremely simplified and stereotyped view of trans women’s identities. She writes: “Trans women say that they are women because they feel female — that, as some put it, they have women’s brains in men’s bodies.” First, considering that the length of the article discusses trans people (and focuses heavily on trans women), to reduce the explanation of their complex experiences to three words — “they feel female” — is offensively reductionist. While such a passing nod to trans experiences might be not be out of place in a more LGBTQ-geared publication, in a more general consumption magazine[.]" + http://bit.ly/VkWUIA + http://huff.to/1Bo9aJr

Mr. Ferris, 39, confessed to bingeing on news, TV and YouTube videos, though he recently took a six-month purgative sabbatical.

Piers Morgan and the psychology of the privileged
These tweets suggest that Morgan’s work as a “supporter” of trans issues is limited to giving Mock the honor of being on his show. It doesn’t matter how she may or may have not been offended, triggered, or harmed by the language, content, or production of the segment. When an oppressor gifts you with a neatly wrapped package of bullshit, you should take it with a smile. Otherwise you’re just ungrateful. + http://mediamatters.org/blog/2014/02/06/piers-morgans-meltdown-five-ways-to-be-a-bad-lg/197961

Barroso verteidigt Freizügigkeit in der EU - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Freizügigkeit sei "ein unverzichtbarer Bestandteil des europäischen Bürgerrechts". "Es ist eine historische Errungenschaft, ein Zivilisationsfortschritt, eine echte Errungenschaft von Freiheit, Demokratie und Rechtsstaatlichkeit." Es dürfe in der EU "keine Bürger erster und zweiter Klasse geben". [...] Dem neuen Migrationsbericht zufolge, den das Bundeskabinett am Mittwoch beschloss, ist die Zuwanderung nach Deutschland 2012 auf den höchsten Stand seit 1995 gestiegen. 1,08 Millionen Zuzüge verzeichneten die Behörden - ein Zuwachs von 13 Prozent im Vergleich zum Vorjahr. [...] die Zahlung von Kindergeld dürfe nicht an ein bestimmtes Verhalten der Empfänger geknüpft werden. Außerdem müsse auch dann gezahlt werden, wenn die Kinder nicht in Deutschland, sondern im Heimatland leben. + http://www.spiegel.de/kultur/gesellschaft/unwort-des-jahres-2013-a-943383.html + http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/bulgarien-fachkraefte-und-die-zuwanderung-nach-deutschland-a-942622.html

Flawless Trans Women Carmen Carrera and Laverne Cox Respond Flawlessly To Katie Couric’s Invasive Questions | Autostraddle
Cox said that the preoccupation with genitalia and transition objectifies trans women and distracts us from the real issues. [...] Then Cox hit it out of the park when she said, “by focusing on bodies we don’t focus on the lived realities of that oppression and that discrimination.” [...] Trans people are more than just our bodies, and these two women showed that in the absolute best way possible. + http://katiecouric.com/videos/carmen-carreras-quest-to-become-a-victorias-secret-angel/ + http://katiecouric.com/videos/orange-is-the-new-black-laverne-cox/ + Carmen Carrera Discusses Transphobia On HuffPost Live - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9X29T3TU1c + http://rollingout.com/entertainment/carmen-carrera-responds-chelsea-handlers-transphobic-jokes/ + @7:25 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDy4re6C6sA

Russell Brand Speaks on Marriage with Katy Perry & Compares UK Woman and American Woman - YouTube
Fame is a temporary thing. They are normal people. Celebrity, Fame and Pop Culture makes people fearful - that their life ain't no good [ for anything else - because they are reduced to the lowest common denominator and looks and 'scandals' ].

BBC News - Is Hollywood's blockbuster model broken?
The irony is that Spielberg almost singlehandedly invented the blockbuster genre. When his film Jaws was released in 1975, Hollywood realised that making a few big-budget films a year that appealed to the masses was more lucrative than making dozens of smaller ones, and a business model was born. Since then budgets have soared and artistic merit has taken a back seat. [...] After a wave of acquisitions in the 80s and 90s, the six "majors" that dominate global box office are now parts of massive media conglomerates. They have found ways to both boost profitability of their films and mitigate the risks associated with making such huge investments. [...] The first thing the studios have done is spread the risk by getting dozens of smaller production companies to invest alongside them, reducing their exposure to a potential flop.

BBC News - Cleveland abductions: Do white victims get more attention?
According to a 2010 academic study, roughly 80% of the news coverage about missing children is devoted to victims who are not black, while only 20% is given to children who are black. The breakdown in media coverage does not reflect reality. "We have a sort of racial hierarchy," says McIlwain. The coverage of violent crime and of people who have disappeared is biased and hurtful, says Natalie Wilson, co-founder of the Black and Missing Foundation, which fights racial stereotypes in the media. >> [In the end, people who deciede what gets published, and people who then write ... are people. And can be unconsciously biased or discriminatory.]
