Opinion | Rules Won’t Save Twitter. Values Will. - The New York Times
The platform won’t ban the dangerous liar Alex Jones because he “hasn’t violated our rules.” Then what’s the point of these rules?
This week, Alex Jones, the persistently mendacious conspiracy-theory spouter — yeah, that’s a real job in 2018 — finally became the ultimate swipe left of the social media age.
Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Spotify and most other major internet distributors banished Mr. Jones, either permanently or for some unspecified star-chamber-determined amount of time, for hate speech and other violations.
But not Twitter. Instead, Jack Dorsey, the chief executive, founder and tweet inventor himself, took to his own platform to explain in the high-minded tone that one takes with small children that Mr. Jones wasn’t suspended from Twitter because he “hasn’t violated our rules.”

Journalists Spread Conspiracy Theory That DHS Document Contains Secret Nazi Code
This is the Jack Chick of liberalism

I mean DHS and ICE are evil but you don’t have to become literally Alex Jones to oppose them 🙄

Edit: this whole thing is weird. Why’d they misgender Laurie Voss? (At least as of today, he has his pronouns in his twitter bio.)

Nazism of Ukraine's Western-Backed Government Is Hidden by Western ‘News' Media By Eric Zuesse
How much of this, which has been shown in Russia and in other countries that aren't yet controlled by the U.S., has been shown also on the nightly 'news' in the West, and reported in ‘news'papers such as The New York Times, and the Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung — 'news' organizations that deny these realities, whenever they're brought up, but that can provide no counter-evidence and therefore prefer to ignore altogether these realities, even while claiming to 'report the news'?

Zuesse: This Is The Real, Americanized, Nazi-Dominated Ukraine | Zero Hedge
In US ‘news’media, the overthrow and replacement of Ukraine’s democratically elected government was ‘the Maidan Revolution’, or ‘the 2014 Ukrainian revolution’, not Obama’s coup in Ukraine. They lie blatantly, and they’ll never be truthful about their having done it. Thus, George Friedman, the founder and owner of the “private CIA” firm Stratfor, called it “the most blatant coup in history,” but only when speaking to a Russian publication — and, then, when he got flak from the US regime for having said that, he denied he had said it. The lies are that mandatory.

Walter Duranty - Wikipedia
The concern over Duranty's reporting on the famine in Soviet Ukraine led to a move to posthumously and symbolically strip him of the Pulitzer Prize he received in 1932.

Retracted: How an Alt-Right Bot Network Took Down Al Franken
Newsweek has retracted its story about a conservative botnet effort to force the resignation of Senator Al Franken.
The initial report was based on research conducted by Unhack The Vote, a group examining outside influence in U.S. elections and politics. It alleged that a "decidedly alt-right" botnet "weaponized" anti-Franken stories and amplified pressure on Franken to resign after allegations of sexual misconduct. Newsweek was unable to independently verify their claims after a further review of their work.
Newsweek regrets the error.
The retracted story identified Mike Cernovich as one of the "prominent, real, live members of the far right" who "spewed thousands of [twitter] posts" pressuring Senator Franken to resign. In a letter through his attorney, Cernovich has alleged the story wrongly connected him to a foreign bot network, falsely suggesting he was a foreign agent. Newsweek did not intend any such implication, and regrets any misunderstanding.
