Chris Hedges on What it Takes to be a Rebel in Modern Times - YouTube
If you care about the truth you eventually run into problems as the journalist who usually manipulates facts for a living. // neoliberalism sold to us through lies and manipulated facts. // 2/3rds of the country in poverty. // mania for hope is a political pacifier even for the liberals, keeping people hopeful - keeps people complacent. // moral imperative for civil disobedience. // but do not use the word hope! // game is fixed. // rebellion led by day class intellectuals. that band together with the underclass. // if you have whole-sale surveillance, you can't have investigative journalism // it's about ratings and money, they don't do journalism. << corporate media. // dismantling BBC by tories is a power play by tories (power elite) // &! redd.it/3x3kw7 - Most of the information we spread online is quantifiably “bullshit” - The internet encourages the spread of information that is emotionally resonant but factually untrue

UK government asks: How's our hacking?
UK gov releases equipment interference guidelines for spy & law enforcement agencies; the guidelines never calls it hacking but 'interference activities; Deputy Director @ Privacy International Eric King (@e3i5) says it's the UK gov's attempt to grant itself some of the most intrusive powers. // "This is the first time that the agencies have admitted that they are in the hacking business," Eric King, the deputy director of London-based digital rights watchdog Privacy International, told Mashable. King said that it amounts to a belated attempt to give these activities a scrap of legal basis, in the face of a lawsuit filed by his group last year, which challenged the legality of the UK intelligence service GCHQ's hacking activities, revealed by Edward Snowden documents. For King, the document is basically an attempt by the UK government to grant itself "some of the most invasive and intrusive" powers it has at its disposal.

Here’s how reporters are reacting to Snowden’s revelations | PandoDaily
The global surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden have caused journalists to change how they operate, question what the government knows about them, and consider abandoning investigative reporting, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. A significant number of the journalists surveyed said they had changed their behavior, whether it’s how they store sensitive files (49 percent), how they communicate with other journalists (29 percent), whether they’ve reached out to a source (13 percent), or pursued a specific story (2 percent). Many are also convinced the government is gathering information about them. Some 64 percent of journalists believed intelligence agencies had “probably collected data” about them. (The other 36 percent, as “InfoSec Taylor Swift” joked, must not read the news.)

US Spy Programs May Break the Internet if Not Reformed, Google Leader Says | WIRED
Until the US recognizes and restores the fundamental right of ownership you have in your data, he continued, the U.S. cannot hope to rebuild trust lost through the NSA’s widespread surveillance programs. This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.

Doping im Fußball: "Mafiöse Methoden von mafiösen Systemen" - NZ-Sport - nordbayern.de
Bei der vorletzten WM 2011 in Daegu / Südkorea gaben in einer anonymen Befragung 29 Prozent der Athleten zu, in der Vorbereitung gedopt zu haben. [...] Man muss sich nur mal die Liste der fast 300 weltweit Gesperrten in der Leichtathletik anschauen, dann weiß man, was los ist. Der Rest der Athleten weiß, wie sie positive Dopingtests vermeiden können, oder hat einfach Glück, im richtigen Moment für sie die Tester an der Haustüre ohne Sorgen empfangen zu können. Wettkampf-Dopingtests während einer WM oder Olympischer Spiele darf man natürlich nicht überbewerten. Nur die ganz Dummen dopen nahe am Wettkampf oder gar Wettkampf selbst!
