How silly to think that social media is important media. It's not like it could be misused to interfere in elections or anything...

Social media have no ethical requirement to be non-censoring. Unlike the news media.

It's a silly discussion. Rightly so, being initiated with a vague accusation posted with no context and no evidence. Don't get me wrong--I'm not silly enough to ask for those, having no illusions that any will be forthcoming. Silly. :ab:

Why do those Russian Bot farms even waste their time, then?

Oh yeah, because a twitter bot-farm account started and did the early twitter promotion which led to the covington media scandal.

You may mince at the word media all you like, but their value is pretty clear to many who pay cash for access.

And of course they have no ethical requirement. Facebook is just a blog platform anyway...not real news...nor is twitter, and it doesn't matter that my government uses it as a news release channel, for everything from snippets of hansards to Department of Transportation announcements.

Not news though. Doesn't matter if it sows division among people, it's not 'Real Media' after all.

What's silly about this is a storm in a teacup about a definition of "media". The ability of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to be used by foreign trolls (government backed or otherwise) with an agenda would not be questioned by most here, Cunt...

It is why I raised the subject of twitter in a 'media bias' thread. The top brass from there sent @Jack and a lawyer on a public speaking tour to do damage control ahead of the shitstorm.

In a likely unrelated story, facebook, twitter and whatsapp were down for a few hours eariler this week.

Someone pointed out that they had to announce the disruption on their rival - Twitter.

I'm trying to understand is why this or Twitter moderating their content is somehow "sketchy."

Steven Crowder is talking about how the left media is misleading about the NZ shooter.

What he asks is simple - read the guys manifesto, and compare it to what the mainstream media portrays.

The amount of time and energy that the media elite — cable news, big newspapers, etc. — have spent talking and writing about the notion that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia is incalculable, but here’s one calculable slice: From January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21, 2019 (the last night before special counsel Robert Mueller sent his report to the Attorney General), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts produced a combined 2,284 minutes of “collusion” coverage, most of it (1,909 minutes) following Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017.

That’s an average of roughly three minutes a night, every night, for an astonishing 791 days — a level of coverage normally associated only with a major war or a presidential election. In fact, TV reporters devoted more airtime to the Russia investigation than any of the Trump administration’s policy initiatives — immigration, tax reform, trade, North Korea, ISIS, the economy, veterans’ affairs, the opioid epidemic, to name but a few. Since his presidency began, nearly one-fifth (18.8%) of all of Trump’s evening news coverage has been about this one investigation.

The networks’ fixation on scandal over substance is one reason their coverage of the President has been so preposterously lopsided. From January 1 through March 21 of this year, the spin of Trump coverage on the evening newscasts has been 92% negative vs. just eight percent positive — even worse than the 90% negative coverage we calculated in 2017 and 2018.
