schestowitz"true: the gaps between the ads are filled with text. True, it is a product. But then: people (mainly not owing the ad companies) buy them ;-)"Nov 08 00:00
schestowitzA lot of people misunderstoof the publication industry (in academia too, e.g. journals). This is intentional, those in charge don't like to disclose who is the client, who is the products (yes, who, not what, they sell privileged audience like FB sells profiles), and who is just being exploited (often guest writers, editors and peer reviewers in journals/conferences)Nov 08 00:01
schestowitzsorry for all the typos, I don't try hard in this sort of forum.Nov 08 00:02
schestowitz 08 00:04 RT @LailaLalami No break, not even for election night: a drone strike in Yemen killed "several individuals." Who were they?Nov 08 00:04
schestowitz"Indeed. They also don't tell you that, on average, drones have a 98% failure rate. As in, they only hit their intended target 2% of the time."Nov 08 00:05
schestowitzI guess 2% is good enough to cover the cost of the fuel for the drone. In US terms, Arab life is equal to -$1 and a hit is worth maybe a thousand.Nov 08 00:05

abeNd-orgyep, he is going to take all the money from the rich people (who may or may have not earned it through hard work on their own part) & give it to everyone else. then we can all be 45 yr old artists who live at home in mommy's basement smoking (now legal) pot since there is no need to get an actual jobNov 08 02:40

abeNd-orgschestowitz if you have no aspirations in life, who cares what welfare paysNov 08 02:50
abeNd-orgyou just build up creditcard debt buying 72" TVs that you default on & pay pennies on the dollar, not like you care what your credit rating is since you dont care anything about yourselfNov 08 02:50
abeNd-orgmost people on welfare think they deserve to live off you, it is their rightNov 08 02:51

schestowitz"Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzThe BBC, together with the London Times, censored all nasty news coming out of the Third Reich up until the change in UK policy and completely censored news on the atrocities in Algeria in the 1990's until they were over. Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzIt is notorious for unattributed and unattributal "news". Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzStock phrases are "it is said that", "it is generally believed that" and, of course, "an anonymous source close to xxxx, told the BBC that..". Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzBut its greatest trick, like the other media organisations, is simply to ignore events. (eg Algeria, British occupied zone in Iraq: Basra) and the broadcast of plain jane propaganda. (British soldiers redecorating an Iraqi school - they didn't of course). Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzThe BBC does has a news value as an official source - you can find out from the BBC what you are supposed to think. Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzSomething that was always useful in totalitarian regimes - kept you out of trouble.Nov 08 13:24
schestowitz"Nov 08 13:24
schestowitzthe press, even when owned by gov (which is rare), is essentially the object of a potentially amoral or immoral entity of power (gov.)Nov 08 13:24

schestowitz 08 20:25 We are civilised. We have high-tech methods of bombing houses with machines. They are "primitive". They carry the bomb on a human (suicide).Nov 08 20:25
schestowitz 08 20:25 Judging by Gitmo, not even the US public finding out about drones will result in changed policy. Obama lied about closing Gitmo in 2008.Nov 08 20:25
schestowitz 08 20:25 Self-censorship in Pakistan and Yemen. Don't complain about the West; it will kill you without even day in court, kill many with a machine.Nov 08 20:25
