Washington Post Finally Admits Hunter Biden's Laptop Is Real

"Has a new article out. Reviewing Hunter Biden's laptop, finding additional documents showing the Biden family interactions with Chinese executives, some of whom are linked to a major Chinese oil and gas company that has ties to the CCP and the PLA. In fact, in our inbox, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Just the audacity it takes to send this email. We got an email from The Washington Post's publicist. For whatever reason they thought they would add freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com to their mass email list. From I'm not going to say her name on air. It's unlike the left we believe people deserve privacy unless they want to become public. Quote, Washington Post alert. Here's how the post analyzed Hunter Biden's laptop. We got this whole pitch that have a Washington Post person on our show. In fact, I would love to have producer Andrew. I'd love to have The Washington Post reporter on our show. What took you so long exactly? Why didn't you move this and do this during the election? Love to have a post reporter. Is there pitching us? They're like, hey, if you have any questions about this, you can let us know. Senior publicist at The Washington Post. Two experts confirm the veracity of thousands of emails. But say a thorough examination was stymied by missing data. The Washington Post Craig timberg, Matt viser, and Tom hamburger report quote, thousands of emails purportedly from the laptop computer Hunter Biden. President Biden's son are authentic, communications that can be verified through cryptographic signatures from Google and other technology companies. Say two security experts who examine the data at the request of The Washington Post. The verifiable emails are a small fraction of the 217 gigabytes of data provided to the post on a portable hard drive by a Republican activist Jack maxi. He said the contents of the portable drive originated from Biden's MacBook Pro, which Biden reportedly dropped off at a computer repair shop in Wilmington Delaware in April 2019 and never reclaimed everything about this that we've been saying is true. All of it. We were centered from social media. We lost access to our Twitter account. The election outcome was directly interfered with because we weren't allowed to talk about it. Now The Washington Post is retreating, saying, oh, by the way, it's all true. I'm going to tell you why

"The invasion of Ukraine is being essentially live streamed to the world by everyday Ukrainians Craig timberg is following the story for The Washington Post he spoke with Taylor van seiss Greg there's so much noise on social media around this invasion Has there ever been a war so accessible to the rest of the world I don't think so We probably all remember golf or images on CNN explosions in the background But this is a new thing because so many people have access to smartphones and social media It's just like anybody can put up anything It's a new world And disinformation is definitely part of this as well because we know it's a favorite tactic of Vladimir Putin's How are Russian interests taking advantage of this Well both sides are really trying to use the tools of social media to push out their narrative about what's happening And so you may see images and they might be virtually the same images but the portrayal of what's happened is different So both sides are really fighting to control the storyline and we're all left to try to figure out who's telling the truth This isn't a trend that's happened just in the last couple of days though right I mean we've been able to use social media to see buildup of Russian troops along the border for a while now Yeah it's been kind of amazing We've seen images of tanks going down streets and Russia and neighboring countries We've seen all sorts of troop movements on things like Google Maps And additionally we've seen very sloppy efforts by Russian disinformation teams to portray what they call false flag videos which is to show false attacks and people once these things hit social media researchers spotted all sorts of problems with them There's a reused video from years ago or data that clearly shows that it was made weeks ago So it's been a strange time on social media as this war has built up Behind the scenes of all of these posts how our social media companies reacting because Facebook they've done okay in the past when it comes to responding to natural disasters but when it's an all out war that's being live streamed how are they responding Not great It's worth acknowledging that this is how Ukrainians are talking to themselves on the outside world through things like Twitter and telegram and Facebook and such But at the same time it's clear that the company is struggling with a sort of moderation issues that they've dealt with in the past We've seen lots of complaints on Twitter that the company has been too aggressive in taking down material that maybe pushes people's boundaries of taste and such Facebook is just being throttled and Russia because the sensors there feel like they've been too aggressive and shutting down Russian news sources So whenever you have these conflicts the companies do tend to get stuck in the middle and they do tend to make mistakes Is the online version of this war being moderated in an effective way by anybody right now The thing you get on social media is just pure speed and immediacy If you want to really understand what's going on may I commend Washington Post dot com and other news sites that are familiar to you because we are in real time trying to process all this information and make sense of it and explain the narrative in a way that's balanced and even handed and all that But boy you can't be Twitter for speed There's just no way I mean people anybody anywhere in the world could just put up these images almost as they happen and we'll never be able to keep up with that kind of immediacy But what you lose is the sort of the role that a mediator such as a news organization plays in trying to discern truth from falsehood You're just seeing things come on your phone or on a computer and you have to really figure out for yourself what to believe It's a tough place to be A lot of analysis that might be best left for the people on the ground Like your team they're at The Washington Post Craig timberg with us on northwest news

"We're speaking with Washington Post reporter Craig Timberg. We're talking about how President Trump's departure and social media restrictions on him and some of his more extremist supporters, including followers of the Cuban on conspiracy theories. Will affect events in the coming months and years. You know, apart from the crackdown on cue and on and other extremist groups on social media, probably the most far reaching move was to take Donald Trump off of Twitter and Facebook, and you're right about this. I mean, This has impacts far beyond you know, spreading conspiracy theories. Doesn't it just kind of a major social change, isn't it? Absolutely. And it's one Did you know for me? It does make me uncomfortable like I mean, I think that it's certainly true that Donald Trump had become a major source of misinformation in the world, right. The Washington Post Mike Mike My colleagues who do the fact checking counted 30,000 falsehoods during Donald Trump's presidency, and let's remember he rose to political prominence pushing another lie, which was that Barack Obama wasn't born United States right, the Birther conspiracy theory so absolutely, he had become In the public conversation. He had become very powerful and also was pushing a lot of untruth. At the same time. It's problematic when any group of people decides who of us gets to speak and how And, uh, now I don't. I wouldn't love it if the government took away my ability to communicate. I don't love it that social media companies are now put in this position. I'm not sure that it's the wrong choice. It may well be the right choice, but it does raise all sorts of really Uncomfortable issues about who gets to talk what they get to say and where these red lines are. And from for my money, I've been covering the intersection of these issues for eight or nine years now. I've never found a really comfortable place. In terms of like, where not only what the role should be. But who should make the rules right? And that in that debate the removal of Donald Trump from Twitter and Facebook really brings that debate back to center stage. Who gets to decide. Who gets to talk and how and while there's certainly not a first Amendment right to have a Twitter account or anything like it to deny the power that these companies are now wielding is seems to me to be shortsighted. I mean, ideally, we would we would want, you know, learn it judges making good faith decisions based on a careful reading of the Constitution here. We have these big private companies that because the way the Communications Act is structured Has this enormous power and it's interesting. You know, Facebook has committed to a formal process on Deciding what happens to Donald Trump's access in the future. I mean, can you describe this? Are you familiar with us? I don't know all of the ins and outs of this process, But I can tell you that Is someone who's written critically about all of these companies For many years, this is one point on which actually have more than the usual thing. Sympathy because, you know, we just don't have laws in this country that give these pirate companies guidelines to follow right. So people talk a lot about the First Amendment and the freedom to speech. But the first payment governs what governments do That does not say anything about what private companies conduce. Oh, And as you said the section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act likewise gives companies a lot of latitude to monitor and kind of manage their platforms. But it doesn't say how it doesn't say where the lines are. And so we're act or asking a bunch of private companies that are fundamentally about expanding their markets and making money. To draw lines that we've been unwilling as a society tol more broadly and and that strikes me is like a not a great setup, and I applaud Facebook for Trying to, you know, to set up a more formalized structure to to wrestle with it. But it all comes down to who's really, really in charge. Right? And you know who's really, really in charge. Mark Zuckerberg's in charge. He's the CEO Facebook. He controls the voting shares of the stock. No. Jack Dorsey, a Twitter's He's He's in charge right? And the only good part of this is that they are responsive to public opinion and market forces. And when After a lot of the unrest last year, But you have a card was boycotted and were able to make some changes. So I guess one could argue that on some level the system's working but deciding who should be making these calls is hard, and I think, if it as a society we got together, we probably wouldn't put all of this power in the hands of Mark's soccer Burke, would we The interesting thing to note about this is that what you know, Zuckerberg has done apparently is too simple, this large committee and given them a quite us to have about 30 people and has promised to abide by their decision and given them You know, a deadline, so it will be fascinating to see where it takes us. Totally. But he's promises to abide by it until he changes his mind, right still above us. So just Yeah. I mean, there's no there's just no legal authority to it. And so what I'm saying is Word them or democracy, right? I mean, this is this is the job of Congress to or in the executive branch to try toe wrestle with this and lay out some some kind of legal guidance or some jurors, prudence or whatever. And, um, you know, our elected representatives ought to be making trying to make these decisions you know, and reflecting the will of the people, not you're not a handful of billionaires in California. How effective are bands like this? Do we know? Do we know how much disinformation Changed in the United States, for example, once once Trump's accounts were suspended. And happily, we do know the answer to that question now because by a variety of metrics, you know misinformation around the election plummeted after Trump's account was taken away by Twitter and and And they were variety of other actions, including the closing of 70,000 Twitter counselor pushing Cuban on e. I mean, I think I think the number that we've quoted a 73%. Others have come up with a similar kind of measurement, and so Just this sketch to the heart of the problem. I mean, so while we would all we love free speech, and we want free speech to be is open as possible. It's also true that my speech can drown out your speech, and my lies can drown out your truth. And so those all seem like good outcomes to me and s O What we have is in the past few weeks is kind of a science experiment. Like what do you what happens when you turned down or or really eliminate the voice of someone who was pushing a lot of lives? It turns out that a lot those lies have a lot of traction..

"And downtown Seattle Tacoma News time. 6 36. Well until the bitter end. Believers of the Cuban on conspiracy thought that somehow President Trump would retain power and Joe Biden would not be inaugurated. But as we witness that, of course, didn't happen. So what happens now to that extreme ideology? Reporting on this for The Washington Post, Craig Timberg talks more with Cuomo's Taylor van size for listeners who might not know or be as steeped in what Cuban on believes. The followers firmly believe that Democrats worship Satan. They eat Children and that Donald Trump was the only person who could bring salvation to the United States. We saw countless que flags and symbols when the U. S Capitol building was stormed. What's the status of their movement? If you could call it that, What's the status of their movement today? You know, it never was a movement in the sense that you know the Democratic Party. My thinkable already. I mean, there's no central organization. There's no membership cards. And so we're left to judge based on what surface is really on social media, and on January 6, they surfaced in person on the capital. It's hard to know if there's if there's just like a big, loud, hard core to the to it, and then a bunch of other people who just sort of loosely following along whether it's bigger and stronger than that. It's very hard to know. Trust. The plan is one of their rallying cries online. Do some followers still believe this is part of the plan. They absolutely seemed to. Yes, there was a lot of talk yesterday. You know when? When President Trump left from Andrews Air Force Base Base, you know, there were 17 flags flying and the 17 is is is, you know Q Is the 17th center in the alphabets there A lot of chatter about That was, you know, a symbol and there was a lot of effort to kind of continue the fantasy that Trump was somehow going to either personally triumph or sort of orchestrate some sort of Triumph Now that Biden's president, thank you and I'm certainly not, you know, mainstream. There aren't like you mentioned there isn't leadership pyramid or anything like that. But there are people making money on the flags that are being sold their people moderating the forums where all of this chatter is taking place. What are those people doing now?

And for those who keep tabs on groups like you and on I was left wondering, Is this gonna be a relief for him? You know that Cuban on might be fizzling or could something you know more bizarre, more dangerous spin out of it. You know that one. The thinking at the moment Among the sort of research community is Q and on is almost certainly going to become a smaller movement. Uh, but they were. You could become a more sort of radicalized Marilyn movement. You know, if you if you share away the people who are loosely affiliated for whom it's merely a hobby, and you're left with the people who still believe that Donald Trump is secretly in control.

And so the invocation of the first of them finish really Really misleading the throwing dust in our eyes. In fact, the efforts to keep Twitter from enforcement policies by the president really is much more of a transparent First Amendment violation of most intended to keep powerful people in government. To keep private individuals companies from saying what they want. So if there is no first Amendment right in this case now, the company said, all of this is temporary. Why aren't they making these changes permanent? This particular set of changes is really about calming the intensity. On DH dangerousness of the political conversation around our elections, so a couple of weeks before and long after is necessary if the outcome is uncertain, so the the way they portrayed it is kind of like tryingto add friction or sort of cool things down because they know as we all do that Twitter and Facebook and YouTube and the others were used to really polarized all of us, 2016, but they don't want that to happen again.

In fact, the efforts to keep Twitter from enforcement policies by the president really is much more of a transparent First Amendment violation of most intended to keep powerful people in government. To keep private individuals companies from saying what they want. So there is no first Amendment right in this case now, the company said. All of this is temporary. Why aren't they making these changes permanent? This particular set of changes is really about calming the intensity. On DH dangerousness of the political conversation around our elections, so a couple of weeks before and long after is necessary if the outcome is uncertain, so the the way they portrayed it is kind of like tryingto add friction or sort of cool things down because they know as we all do.

David Fe made those pieces using 600 decommissioned guns and ammunition. The way he says to continue. The gun debate sculpture will be on display in downtown Las Vegas starting Thursday, the third anniversary of the mass shooting that killed 58 people. Michelle Frandsen, ABC News A new report claims a Republican aligned Data firm disproportionately identified black voters as quote right for deterrence in profiles prepared for President Trump's 2016 campaign. Technology reporter Craig Timberg has taken a closer look for the Washington Post and spoke with Como's Bill O'Neill. Craig first Take us through this report on the database built by Cambridge Analytica Channel four news in Britain, which has done a lot of investigative work on Cambridge, Analytica. Was able to lay their hands on a database that they say was prepared for You know, the Republican National Committee induced by the Trump campaign, and what it shows is that you know, 200 million American voters. We were chopped into these various categories where we're all analyzed, but it also shows the people who were Listed for potential deterrence messages. So, for example, if they thought that I could be dissuaded from voting for Hillary Clinton, they would send me Facebook as etcetera to discourage me from voting. And so what? The report says that this is just the kind of tactics with disproportionately used against African Americans in the 2016 race. Now, has there been any reaction from either the White House of the current Trump campaign to this? They have denied this. You know, which is not unusual. There's been a lot of denials for a lot of years about between Cambridge Analytica, the Trump campaign and about Republicans in general, you know, and to be fair, like the report by Channel Four. News doesn't exactly Demonstrate how this material was used. It did. What it shows is that 3.5 million African Americans were listed for deterrence messaging, but it doesn't really tell you very much about How much of that was actually deployed during the election. We just don't know yet. So it's information that was compiled, but we don't necessarily know how it was used. Yeah, I mean, the report. They actually quite helpfully went into some majority black neighborhoods in urban areas and swing states such as Wisconsin and Florida and talk to people and show them there. There. You know the analysis done on them, Which is I'm sure someone a nerve in experience to see this in your name in the database and your income level in your in your job. I've seen that you've been listed for deterrence. But the report doesn't tell you and that person received message X Y and Z And then just maybe there's get that kind of information at this point, but it doesn't. It doesn't make the question about exactly what the outcome of all of these tactics were. Obviously this is going to raise more questions about voter suppression and, more specifically, what's being done about it by platforms such as Facebook and others indeed. You know Facebook's response to this yesterday, Wass, You know, we're a different company. Now that we've you know, we take this very seriously. You know, we have 35,000 moderators that arrives. You know, we're more transparent into something That's true. I think they do take a more serious. I think they do have Paul season. Procedures in place to do better, you know in the civil rights community is different, quite a bit with basic whether they've gone far enough, and I think there's an argument to be made that there's still things that they could do. But I think it is fair to say that there more on the ball on these issues in 2020 than they were in 2016. That's Craig Timberg read more online in washingtonpost dot com.

Twitter Suspends Accounts Posting About Washington DC Blackout For Spreading ‘Misinformation’

"Have talked to a number of times about the role social media plays especially in moments like this we talked about on Tuesday the hash tag blackout Tuesday we're discussing you know elevate black voices to kind of show your support some people called it virtue signaling that's a phrase that's been used often but sometimes people are sharing information that doesn't turn out to be true awards from a botany can be really hard especially if you're a newbie to social media or maybe and I don't want to just love older generations into it which is kind of new to any sort of platform not quite understanding of if something looks suspicious or sometimes it looks completely legitimate and people fall for things like that but there was one the hashtag do you see a black out that was a really interesting to watch unfold on Twitter and join me to talk about it right now is Craig Timberg is a technology reporter at The Washington Post he reported on this a great thanks so much for your time my pleasure okay so let's start with this hashtag do you see a black out from what I read in your article it just started with a couple of tweets but then just blew up what exactly happened so an account that certainly looks fake they're only three followers when I followed the directions for followers and that have been newly created all it ever done was try to create new hash tags and then to so it created this new DC blackout hash tag around two AM Monday and then a couple of other very fishy looking accounts amplified it on there themselves and the result was it became over the course of a few hours this amazing online gathering spot for just huge amounts of misinformation about what happened in Washington DC and the central claim was that the police have basically cut communications throughout the city to so they could kind of crackdown on the protesters and of course someone who lives in DC Iraq a mile from the capital I knew that that just wasn't true and so what how does something like this happened because I I feel like something catches on and then of the person that is legitimate right has a huge social media following well then re tweeted and then how do you actually put the genie back in the bottle one something like this happens yeah I mean I don't know exactly help this one exploded as well because this is that is as large as it did it but in general you know once something is out there once it has been created people see it and then they want to comment on that so it is T. he blacked out hashtag you got like a half million tweet in just about eight or nine hours from people who are concerned about what happened in Washington DC so there's this interactive quality between the initial misinformation and then people posting other you know videos and images and such including one that work from Washington and then there were people who were talking back at them they don't know I'm here in Washington too quickly it's because clearly not that that isn't happening and coke that sort of you know it comes like a lot a wildfire and to get your personal putting the genie back in the bottle I mean no I mean I you we did were ultimately corrective he'll cut our store was kind of corrective and know people the word spread that this wasn't what what they claim happened literally true but of course you know you can't find everyone who saw that hashtag images like misinformation just explode then you can't unexploded what just happened

"Unfortunately that data might not be detailed enough to accurately project when life could return to normal reporting on this in the Washington post is Craig Timberg who spoke with Thomas Jeff Pohjola first off how does this tracking data impact infection and mortality prediction models what you learned from looking at sort of aggregated data on people's movement is how much time they're spending away from home how much time that they're spending in places where folks congregate grocery stores at at the like so you know in the upside of this epidemic when we were all stopping moving around or stopping going into our workplaces the data had a very direct relationship you know people move less and affection went out and so how's that changed so that the the the map on the other side of the epidemic curve just looks different right because it at the time when we all stop going to work and taking our kids to soccer practice and all that all other things are going all right stocks to chatting in the same way with our neighbors maybe we stop shaking hands it could be said right masks and so that the sort of more subtle indicators of infection risk don't shop in the smartphone data at all my focus into a port ask my phone doesn't know that down I'm talking with a neighbor over a fence and we're two feet away from each other so there's just a lot of subtlety that get missed in this particular kind of data and how's it all collected you know this your seller support for responded to all the time okay it's what they could to meeting all this information this particular data come mainly from what from the apps on your smartphone so for example you know you have a weather app you may have the Facebook you may have Google maps all these things are kind of routinely try to figure out where you are both because that's how they work but also because that's how they figure out how to target advertising that yourself this is the kind of data that's being used by researchers now with being we have distorted it's Daddy used to be collected in order to it so when you walk by Starbucks you get and you get a coupon for event a lot today it's now being used to track people's movements on aggregate level to see how we're kind of complaint these government orders how detailed is is that location data can it get like down to the block in the know if you're home or not you are depends on how densely packed urban area you live in but yeah I'll block the block level in an urban area sure and that's the main metric they look after look actually at they don't know necessarily where we live but they do know that between you know say ten o'clock at night at eight o'clock in the morning you're not moving and they pursued it that your homework functional your home and then when you go somewhere else the notice that you black hole and that's the first indicator that there's potentially you would fight infection risk because within your home unit you may in fact people in your home but you're not going to kind of call the broader outbreak and what are the legal and and and I guess civil rights implications here because a lot of people don't like giving out that information if this is a tough one the data that's being used is Agra get it and it is anonymized so there's been a lot of concern over over many years that about a fight that is out of this as we'd like it to be but we are at we haven't actually seen any indication the smartphone data that the researchers are now using that that public health officials let I think is really

"Are in jail on drug offenses in two thousand and it was twenty two percent in last year. It was almost forty six percent. So that's something. That's that's wild. That's crazy. The two thousands seeing the skyrocketing rate of inmates inner for drugs. Well, we can debate that someday. So. Horrifying, killing we know about New Zealand. These things happen. Unfortunately, and we have the same arguments over and over again, but the social media aspect of it is new. Some smart thinkers seemed to think this might be a sea change in. How this whole thing works. How people go about it. Obviously the way for scumbags to get together. Online is changed the internet. Right, right. Craig Timberg national technology reporter for the Washington Post is covering one aspect of the high tech nightmare that that is emerging. And that's the the struggles to take down the video small other things. Hello, craig. How are you, sir? Hi, I see you segue, right out of scumbag to me. Well, you know, I was going to say it's always fun to talk Craig. I'm sorry. It's such a dark topic today. But I want to get the facts nailed down here. So did he he walked into the mosque with a gopro on his head? Facebook live. Yeah. Okay. And how long did that? Did he did he Facebook live the whole thing? Yeah. It was only one of two of you talk to MAV. There's only one of two of them. I believe that the clip that got shared quite a bit with seventeen minutes long while and longtime. You know, look everything about this story is troubling. So the alleged shooter is talking on HSEN, which is an anonymous kinda no-holds-barred message board that has lots of racist and such on it before the attack, and then they're kind of waiting for the attack. And then you soon as the attack happened, they're grabbing the video and sharing it kind of all over the place and was he working? I just want to make sure understand it. What was he working with them? Like, they knew he was going to do this. And it was talking about violence. I don't know if he was describing exactly what he was going to do. But he was. Yeah. There was talk about doing violent violent. I'm gonna I'm gonna video it. And then you guys get it out there. Yeah. Essentially. Yeah. And so they're the people all that all that chat room are kind of a waiting for something to happen waiting for news reports to arrive, and then wants the videos up Facebook is actually able to to identify and block the main video, you know, fairly quickly in less than an hour. But then people all over the internet or grabbing it, and they're posting it to YouTube and all sorts of other online sites, and they're posting it so fast, and they're alternate in ways that kind of make it difficult for the computer to detect it that YouTube essentially breaks like YouTube is unable to stop the spread of this thing and unable to stop the spread of the things we're talking like YouTube Google, so we're talking about two of the richest most technologically advanced companies in the world. Are essentially overpowered outsmarted by a bunch of humans who wanted to get this video out there. We'll right in the so you said, and I've I've I've read this YouTube took down a million videos one and a half million videos in twenty four hours Facebook. I'm sorry Facebook. And and you said they had it done within an hour. Okay. Well, that's good. But do I understand correctly that the New Zealand police had to get a hold of Facebook and say, hey, look, this is going on to get it to stop. Algorithms catch a live live murders. Yes, they should. But they didn't. And so I feel like for me, the real takeaway from the story is is twofold one the computers are just not good enough yet our idea that artificial intelligence can scour every video in the world in real time. And identify stuff turns out that they're not that good yet. Well, God, it's not even close. Obviously, not even I agree with not even close to good enough yet. And then Secondly, nobody's harder up human moderators to deal with the problem on the scale YouTube actually turned off its program of having human moderators review video that have been flagged by their computers because the human. He went to slow by which I think you could conclude they didn't have enough of them. So both the computers and the human side of this from the tech companies failed. Fail spectacularly, and I'd say. Okay. Here's a column. Devil's advocate question, tangential, whatever Craig Timberg or the Washington Post is online. If. It's it would obviously be better. If something this horrifying distasteful insensitive of the victims at cetera was not going around. But. What's other than it being horrifically distasteful? I've seen lots of people die on the internet. What's I mean, is it such a big problem that these companies have to have staff, and or technology to intercept this once in a very very long time sort of horror? If you can broadcast live murders. It will happen a thousand times a day around the world, you think the fame seeking we talk time it will explode. Now, maybe it would happen so often that you wouldn't get much attention and then eventually go away. But I think it would happen nonstop if people thought, oh my God, I'm going to be live on Facebook to everybody. Let me let me add another even more troubling aspect of this see. So this wasn't just you know, forty nine people being shot and killed. This was you know, this was a hate crime. This was about someone who hated Muslims killing Muslims. So there's an ideological component to what he did. But also to the way it was broadcast and spread. So what you what you have is a propaganda video that spreads the idea of of heating Muslims, and and using murder to express that hate, and so that idea gets carried in the wind as you know, as a as a man stomps through a mosque and shoots and kills people. So it's not just the horror of seeing people trying to get a good point ideas is is inherent to it. Right. Very similar to the horrifying ISIS videos. Ironically enough. Yeah. Good point. Yeah. Oh boy. Wow. So. Yeah. Well, jacket, I crave. Spent a lot of time talking about how everyone in the media in our opinion is is involved in in making more of these shootings because they make these guys into world famous characters. Their grievances are aired their their manifestos are red cool. Shots of them. Holding guns are posted worldwide. We think it's absolutely terrible. But yeah, I get it. Now. This would be like a super hyper version of guys you become an action hero in your own move. But we're journalists, right? What we do is we tell you important things. And so if somebody shooting and killing forty nine people in broadcasting does not sound important to you. You should just turn off you could walk away from news reporting altogether, because it's just news stories as you can imagine. I mean, one could argue the World War Two was horrific. We shouldn't have been given all that attention to Hitler on the other hand, if he was nor terrible things they don't tend to go away is much more likely the case, I believe that when you when you focus on terrible things the world, and the better people the world attempt to remedy those things. And that's our function is to bring that spotlight. I would argue there's all that we're sort of like complicit like we're not making movies here. You know, we're not, you know, we're we're telling people what's going on. That's our job. Right. But I think it's very different the way the Washington Post would cover it, then say CNN might. But I'm not going to criticize CNN. I look I just think it's not reasonable to think like when I sometimes hero. Well, you gave too much attention to Trump, and I say, well, he was the Republican nominee for president. The president job to cover those people. That's what we do. Well, since we're off on this topic. I mean, we talked to mental health experts. Everybody agrees making folk heroes out of these shooters creates more of them. So we can cover the issue of shootings, but we don't have to make them into cool guys. And and I'll mention it you won't complain. But the New York Post had a picture of this guy looking cool in a leather jacket on Friday morning now if that doesn't make that it's like beta Iraq, hiring any liebowitz to do as photos forum. They came up with the coolest picture, you can find the guy, and you put it out there and get little snippets from his manifesto to make him. Look cool that is creating more death. So I didn't I didn't see that image. But I will tell you. I think the problem here is is the social media, right? The problem is that anybody anywhere in the world can post anything, and nobody can stop them at least not in real time. Yeah. Problem of of news organizations covering murder and mayhem is it. You know, if you people guard, that's a problem. It certainly is an old one. But what happened Friday a new problem? Yeah. You know? And and I just think that we all need to ask ourselves like what what is the world's supposed to do about this. What are the company's supposed to do about this? What what does that conference supposed to do about this? What should users of these services be doing about this? Because man, this is this is worse than you. And I had had some hard conversations about some unpleasant things over the past few years. But man, this is a new level for me. I'm really hard to shock. I'm shocked by what happened on Friday. Well, and generally speaking, I have had faith in cultures and people and governments and whomever to adjust to these things, and like, you know, my kid was the first person I ever heard say haters gonna hate as I was talking about various hate Email, and he was better at ignoring the noise of social media than I do my my worry, though. And I think most people share it is that the pace of change is so incredibly rapid at this point that I'm not sure technology and cultures are going to be able to change fast. Enough to not have this turned into what you guys were suggesting, which is or are going to change in ways that we don't want it to change rights cures that are worse than the disease cheery conversation. Craig Timberg national technology reporter for the Washington Post. Craig it's always stimulating. Thanks very much. Yeah. Let's talk about something happier. Indeed. Well done though, I've got a couple more really interesting angles on this that should be discussed including one that's very touchy for us. Michael, Wayne, my arm like a crazy person. I have more insulting things to say about Bego. It's.

And then there is a guy who they Mikey Dickerson who ran a company that was doing some political consulting and they hired another company called new dodge, which was a disinformation research from all three of these actors had a role in it through this project, Birmingham debrief how do the organizers of the project adapt the Russian tactics meant to benefit Republicans in two thousand sixteen to their efforts of wanting to elected democrat in Alabama a year later. So this is an effort that existed mainly on Facebook, and they targeted hundreds of thousands of Alabama voters with messages that were intended to get them to change the way, they vote now, of course, nothing wrong with that. But they were very deceptive about who they were for capable. They would have you know, what would appear to be a conservative Facebook page that was sending messages to other conservatives in Alabama, but it would be secretly intended to undermine support for the Republican ROY Moore.

To identify Google and Facebook declined to comment on the report, but a Google spokesperson pointed to the company's efforts to combat disinformation Twitter Senate has made significant strides against the manipulation of its service. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported Sunday on a draft report commissioned by the committee looking at data provided by the tech firms through mid twenty seventeen it provides an even clearer view of the scope of Russia's social media manipulation this many ways as the report we've been waiting for its sweeping it's comprehensive.
