On Finland, the United States, and the freedom of information and of the press - The Washington Post
"Precisely because Finland is worthy of kudos for its protection of free expression over the years, it is all the more interesting what it does not protect."

On the trail for the final week of the Trump campaign.
"Behold, Trump said to his fans, I’ve rounded up a passel of those elites you detest. And I’ve caged them for you! Allow me to belittle them for your delight. Here, now you take a turn—go ahead, have at it! Do it again, don’t be shy! Under President Trump, the other elites will be in cages, too. We’ll lock them up, just like the chant goes. Just like you wanted. You’ll be their captors."

Autocracy: Rules for Survival | by Masha Gessen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
"One of the falsehoods in the Clinton speech was the implied equivalency between civil resistance and insurgency. This is an autocrat’s favorite con, the explanation for the violent suppression of peaceful protests the world over."

Rule #1: Believe the autocrat.
Rule #2: Do not be taken in by small signs of normality.
Rule #3: Institutions will not save you.
Rule #4: Be outraged.
Rule #5: Don’t make compromises.
Rule #6: Remember the future.

WashPost Makes History: First Paper to Call for Prosecution of Its Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer)
"In arguing that no public interest was served by exposing PRISM, what did the Post editors forget to mention? That the newspaper that (simultaneous with The Guardian) made the choice to expose the PRISM program by spreading its operational details and top-secret manual all over its front page is called … the Washington Post."  washingtonpost  2016  2010s  pulitzer  prize  newspaper  op-ed  glenn_greenwald  edward_snowden  criminal  NSA  prism  screengrab  publishing  leak  journalism  hypocrisy  secret  government  transparency

Is Japan Asia's Next Autocracy? - Bloomberg View
not only repealing Article 9... more insidious changes await?
"The government secrets law and other crackdowns on press freedom are a worrying sign -- Japan has already slipped from 10th in Reporters Without Borders’ global press freedom ranking in 2010 to 61st in 2015."

The “Bernie Bros” Narrative: a Cheap Campaign Tactic Masquerading as Journalism and Social Activism
"I see nothing wrong with journalists being vehemently devoted to a political candidate. But it's important to know what it is... Have pro-Clinton journalists and pundits been subjected to some vile, abusive, and misogynistic rhetoric from random, anonymous internet supporters of Sanders who are angry over their Clinton support? Of course they have. Does that reflect in any way on the Sanders campaign or which candidate should win the Democratic primary? Of course it does not."  glenn_greenwald  2016  2010s  criticism  bullying  internet  media  jeremy_corbyn  hillary_clinton  bernie_sanders  support  narrative  journalism  scandal  harassment  politics  politician  abuse

The Breaking News Consumer's Handbook - On The Media
via Tips for handling breaking news:
1. In the immediate aftermath, news outlets will get it wrong.
2. Don't trust anonymous sources.
3. Don't trust stories that cite another news outlet as the source of the information.
4. There's almost never a second shooter.
5. Pay attention to the language the media uses.
* "We are getting reports" ... could mean anything.
* "We are seeking confirmation" ... means they don't have it.
* "[News outlet] has learned" ... means it has a scoop or is going out on a limb.
6. Look for news outlets close to the incident.
7. Compare multiple sources.
8. Big news brings out the fakers. And photoshoppers.
9. Beware reflexive retweeting. Some of this is on you.

Doubting UVA’s Gang-Rape Victim Is a Trap -- The Cut
"At this point, the benefits of believing Jackie if she is telling the truth (forcing reform at UVA, encouraging other women to come forward) outweigh the risks of believing Jackie if she is lying (unnecessary wariness about Phi Kappa Psi). ... [T]he preemptive backlash makes it feel like presumed innocence is a privilege reserved for purported rapists and not their purported victims."

The boy in the bubble : CJR
"The timing couldn’t have been better. Not only had Klein entered political blogging at a moment when digital natives were beginning to reconstitute the opinion-journalism profession, but the topic that fused his passion and wonkery—healthcare—was surging back into the public discussion, as progressive ideas resurfaced within American liberalism."
"In fact, he is so deep inside now that he’s come to an even more terrifying conclusion about life in The Village than his Netroots compatriots could ever have dreamed: “I’m much more certain that the problems are systemic and the various forms of gatekeeping elites [are] impotent,” he wrote me in a follow-up email to our interview. “And that feeling—that the people in charge aren’t just wrong or bought off, but that, quite often, they fundamentally don’t know what they’re doing—is a bit scary, and fairly radicalizing.”"

The Failure of 'Failing Schools' Transcript - On The Media
"No Child Left Behind sets up a whole high stakes testing regime and holds schools to various standards, one of which enables politicians, school boards, etc., to declare schools “failing.” But the phrase has been made generic, and the term is, importantly, politicized. Politicians run on the basis of fixing the failing schools."

Self-Reliant Film » Blog Archive » The Pornography of the Real
Jill Godmilow: The “pornography of the real” involves the highly suspect, psychic pleasure of viewing “the moving picture real” … a powerful pornographic interest in real people, real death, real destruction and real suffering, especially of “others”, commodities in film. These “pleasures” are not brought to our attention...

P. Harrill: "I think of storytelling as a kind of citizenship, so I don’t blame people for wanting to know the stories unfolding in Blacksburg, nor do I blame journalists for telling those stories. Still, how one gathers the facts, why you gather them, and the way you tell them can’t be separated from the story you’re telling."
