And a 100 mile vs 2000 mile border


Stultus Maximus posted:

Not to minimize this but that comes to 6 per 100,000 crossings for the US border and 150 per 100,000 for the Berlin Wall.

Yeah and we're not in a world-wide battle between superpowers against Mexico and with a massively authoritarian state controlling access on one side of the wall oh wait

Looks like Sandy Hook parent's lawyers got what they wanted - Jones is likely to lose ownership of Infowars in liquidation. Infowars won't go away, but he won't directly own it anymore.

:toot:

Hope this causes him some real misery somehow.

Can we shift the election talk to another thread? It’s tiring to read and derails this thread for pages.

Yeah if theres like a major update its thread relevant but dooming about how to or not to choose the lesser of two evils is an endless discussion imo.

https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-covid-propaganda/

quote:

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. military launched a secret campaign to counter what it perceived as China’s growing influence in the Philippines, a nation hit especially hard by the deadly virus.

The clandestine operation has not been previously reported. It aimed to sow doubt about the safety and efficacy of vaccines and other life-saving aid that was being supplied by China, a Reuters investigation found. Through phony internet accounts meant to impersonate Filipinos, the military’s propaganda efforts morphed into an anti-vax campaign. Social media posts decried the quality of face masks, test kits and the first vaccine that would become available in the Philippines – China’s Sinovac inoculation.

Reuters identified at least 300 accounts on X, formerly Twitter, that matched descriptions shared by former U.S. military officials familiar with the Philippines operation. Almost all were created in the summer of 2020 and centered on the slogan #Chinaangvirus – Tagalog for China is the virus.

quote:

In another experiment, researchers created two accounts interested in mommy vloggers — mothers who make video diaries about parenting — that they trained to have different political biases. One of the accounts watched Fox News, and the other watched MSNBC. Despite having watched their respective channels for equal amounts of time, the right-leaning account was later more frequently recommended Fox News than the left-leaning account was recommended MSNBC.

A mommy vlogger account that the left-leaning user had already subscribed to was the most recommended channel.

“These results suggest that right-leaning news content is more frequently recommended than left-leaning,” the study said. Both accounts were also recommended videos by an anti-vaccine influencer.

Those results sound more like "yup that's the mommy vlogger demographic alright"

It is but check the article, I only quoted a small part and they go through other types of dummy accounts and find for most all of them the amount of Rwing media served outpaces Lwing even for accounts that browse Lwing sources primarily.
