Fake news goes nuclear as IAEA warns against meddling with Iran

(2.2.2019) A veteran CIA officer was discussing Iran’s future at an international security forum in Israel on Tuesday (Jan 29) when the moderator cut him off to cue up a breaking news bulletin on the giant monitor overhead.

Iran, Israel’s Channel 2 announced, had just abandoned its landmark nuclear deal with world powers and will start kicking out inspectors immediately.

Jair Bolsonaro: Was Brasiliens ultrarechter Präsident mit dem Internet vorhat

(19.1.2019) Jair Bolsonaro ist auch dank seiner Digitalstrategie an die Macht gekommen. Weil Brasiliens neuer Präsident auch Desinformationskampagnen, Hetze und Diffamierung unterstützt hat, sind Netzexperten besorgt.

Amtsantritt Bolsonaros: Brasiliens evangelikaler Kulturschock

Der von Jair Bolsonaro angekündigte „große Kulturwandel“ wirkt bereits – in Form von Angst, Aufrufen zum öffentlichen Denunziantentum und hemmungsloser Verbreitung von Fake-News über politisch Andersdenkende. Brasilien, das einst als gelassen und tolerant galt, erlebt jetzt eine Welle von Hass und Aggressivität. Ein Teil der rechten Revolution ist das Projekt „Schule ohne Partei“ (Escola sem Partido), mit dem staatliche Schulen und Universitäten ideologisch umgekrempelt werden sollen.

Bolsonaro ist Brasiliens Präsident: Am Weg zurück in die Militärdiktatur

(30.10.2018) Am absurdesten war aber wohl der „Gay Kit”, der im Rahmen eines LGBT Aufklärungsprogramm dazu dienen sollte, Homosexualität bei SchülerInnen zu fördern – gegeben hat es den „Gay Kit” freilich nicht. Obwohl mit dieser Kampagne Bolsonaro einerseits gegen das Gesetz verstößt, das die Offenlegung privater Wahlförderung vorschreibt, und andererseits gegen das Verbot gefälschter Inhalte zur Manipulation von Wahlen, annullierte das Gericht zur Überwachung der Wahlen seine Kandidatur nicht.

MPs repeat call for ‚Cliff’s Law‘ to stop suspects being named before charge after Gatwick drone front pages

Anna Soubry MP (pictured) said the couple “should not have been named in the media”, adding that a new law was “needed” to make it a criminal offence to name suspects before charge unless it is in the interests of justice.

The pair were pictured on the front pages of the Mail on Sunday, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Mirror, Sunday Express and Sunday People yesterday morning, as well as on numerous news websites.

Der Hinweis des marokkanischen Geheimdienstes war erschreckend konkret. Es seien Personen in Europa unterwegs, um im deutsch-französischen Grenzgebiet einen Selbstmordanschlag zu begehen. Ein Flughafen sei das Ziel.

Am „Fest der Ungläubigen“ solle der Anschlag stattfinden, hieß es. Solche Hinweise kennen deutsche Behörden seit vielen Jahren.

Help WikiLeaks Sue Guardian Over Fabricated Story

The Embassy’s visitor logs – maintained by Ecuador – show no such visits, since they did not occur.

This is not the first time that the Guardian, and in particular its writer Luke Harding, have fabricated a story about Assange.

WikiLeaks is suing The Guardian for libel over this serious fabrication.

Bringing legal action in UK courts is extremely expensive. WikiLeaks is entirely funded by the public and urgently needs your support.

Misreporting Manafort: A Case Study in Journalistic Malpractice

(3.12.2018) Firstly, the entire story was based upon anonymous intelligence sources, sources that could not tell the newspaper exactly when the meetings took place.

Furthermore, the Ecuadorian embassy is one of the most surveilled buildings in the most surveilled city in the world, and was under 24-hour police guard and monitoring, costing the UK government over £11 million between 2012 and 2015. The embassy also had very tight internal security, with all visitors thoroughly vetted, required to sign in and leave all their electronic devices with security. Is it really possible any figure, let alone Donald Trump’s campaign manager, could walk in for a series of secret meetings without leaving record with Ecuador, or being seen by the media or police?

How the US military is using ‘violent, chaotic, beautiful’ video games to train soldiers

(7.3.2017) As part of a study, we interviewed 15 current and former members of the U.S. military who were between 24 and 35 years old to understand the role violent first-person shooter games played in their recruitment and training.

The majority of interviewees told us it was important to stay in the mindset of a soldier even when not on duty. To them, first-person shooters were the perfect vehicle for doing this.

Pentagon and CIA enlist video games

(10.3.2003) With “Full Spectrum Warrior,” currently in testing at Fort Benning, Ga., squad leaders learn how to command nine soldiers in complex, confusing urban warfare scenarios. The game isn’t not about sprinting, “Rambo”-like, through alleys with guns blazing.

“It’s not really about shooting at things,” Macedonia said. “Learning how to shoot your weapon is easy. The challenging thing is leading.”

The game the Institute for Creative Technologies has been working on with the CIA for about a year — at a cost of several million dollars — will let agency analysts assume the role of terror cell leaders, cell members and operatives.

“Our analysts would be accustomed to looking at the world from the perspective of the terrorists we are chasing, and learn to expect the unexpected,” CIA spokesman Mark Mansfield said.
