82525 Facebook blocks Pulitzer-winning reporter over Malta government exposé
Remember when we started talking about Facebook gaining a worrying power to censor the news?

>Facebook has censored a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist for publishing a series of posts alleging corruption by the prime minister of Malta and his associates. Matthew Caruana Galizia, a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ award-winning Panama Papers team, was temporarily locked out of his Facebook account over four posts, which were deleted for violating the social network’s community standards.

>“For me, this process was enlightening because I realised how crippling and punitive this block is for a journalist,” Caruana Galizia told the Guardian by email.

>The posts, which were written in Maltese, contained allegations of wrongdoing by prime minister Joseph Muscat, his chief of staff Keith Schembri, and minister of energy Konrad Mizzi. Each post included images of documents from the Panama Papers leak. The censorship of Caruana Galizia comes amid considerable political turmoil and intrigue in the Mediterranean island nation, where a snap election is scheduled for 3 June. It also again raises concerns over Facebook’s incredible power to disseminate – or block – news and information.

>On 7 May, Matthew Caruana Galizia, who is the son of Daphne Caruana Galizia, began publishing his own reporting on offshore companies and Maltese political figures on his Facebook page, using the hashtags #FattiKorrotti and #CorruptionFacts. The posts include scans of documents from the Panama Papers, including passports, bank statements, and letters, as well as Caruana Galizia’s explanation of their meaning.

>On Tuesday 16 May, Caruana Galizia was locked out of his account for 24 hours. Several #FattiKorrotti posts were deleted.

>The deletions raise questions about how Facebook moderates journalism. In 2016, the social media site ignited a global controversy when it censored an iconic Vietnam war photograph of a naked child fleeing a Napalm attack. Facebook initially defended its decision, going so far as to delete a post by the Norwegian prime minister, because it was consistent with its policy barring nudity. Facebook subsequently amended its policy, announcing that it would allow people to publish material that would otherwise violate its standards if it was found to be “newsworthy, significant, or important to the public interest”.

>Documents related to alleged wrongdoing by public officials in the weeks before an election are in the public interest, and they have certainly been deemed newsworthy by the Maltese press, which has followed Caruana Galizia’s lead in reporting on them. “It’s important that journalists can publish information that is in the public interest,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We are investigating these posts and have spoken with Mr Caruana Galizia today so that he can publish what he needs to, without including unnecessary private details that could present safety risks. If we find that we have made errors, we will correct them.”

As an amateur philologist could you give me an example? If you'd asked me prior what Maltese was I'd have assumed it was some mildly bastardised version of Spanish or Italian that dons the cloak of 'separate' language by virtue of borders. You sound like an interesting fellow.

The Lib Dems usually run a very lean and cost-effective campaign based on local grass-roots activism. They spent 72p per vote in 2005 and 70p per vote in 2010, so their cost-per-vote doubled after the coalition.

Disclosing information is so small-time. The President The Donald doesn't do small-time. If he's going to disclose anything, he's going to go big. He wouldn't tell anyone anything without telling them where he heard it, like "I heard on Fox News", "I read on Breitbart" or "Israel gave us this intelligence in confidence but I can trust you, right Sergei?"

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to £100...

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this...

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay £1.
The sixth would pay £3.
The seventh would pay £7..
The eighth would pay £12.
The ninth would pay £18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay £59.

So, that's what they decided to do..

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve ball.

1. what is it with neoclassical cocksuckers and stupid analogies
2. all this does is create an argument for multilateral capital controls (i.e. keynes clearing union or something) as a contingency necessary for basically all major countries. (suppose the necessity to jack taxes up arises - let's say hitler comes back and WW4 starts: if the rich can all just hop off to the cayman islands, that's a problem for everyone except Helen Kilpatrick...)

>The government has now used it as an excuse to actively punish people for having more than two children

Punished? Receiving less of a handout solely for squeezing out children is hardly a punishment. Less of a reward =/= a punishment.

The ceasement of child benefit for having more than two children was well publicised and, at the time of the announcement, would only impact on children who hadn't even been conceived yet. The overwhelming majority of people in this country resent slaving away and paying taxes to fund the lifestyles of those who want to laze around and squeeze out numerous kids, funded by the state.

Unlimited benefits is not a vote winner. If the decision to have three or more children rests on whether you'll receive child benefit for them then you really shouldn't breed.

They are punished because they lose their right to something on account of having too many babies. The concept of punishment does not just include a visit to prison as any child who has not been allowed ice cream will tell you.

>The overwhelming majority of people in this country resent slaving away and paying taxes to fund the lifestyles of those who want to laze around and squeeze out numerous kids, funded by the state.

The overwhelming majority of people in this country also (I would hazard) believe that child poverty is a serious issue and that every child has a right to a good upbringing. Hence all those laws and stuff we have.

Anyway, it is a dumb rule brought about by simple minded people like yourself. Children are a good investment for a society as they grow up, pay taxes, fight wars and generally mean that the society continues 25 years down the line. If we accept that layabout parents are a problem then why set it at 2 when it is such an obviously unstable number for the state to encourage and why should child benefit be the way to target such people. Certainly the biggest losers will be the children themselves when the more sensible option would be to provide free childcare so the layabouts have no excuse to sit at home.

>If the decision to have three or more children rests on whether you'll receive child benefit for them then you really shouldn't breed.

This comes under nudge theory which is something the government makes use of. By capping benefits at 2 the state is indirectly informing you that family size should be limited to 2 just as sin taxes are a way of nudging you away from behaviour ruled as bad.

Well, you should hope they don't bring out a tax for any adjectives after your first two.

You have a big problem with the poster using the term 'punished', you then go on to use both too much exaggeration and too many adjectives (your point doesn't need flowery language). While at the same time;

>The overwhelming majority of people in this country resent slaving away

No one 'slaves away', this useless rhetoric is beyond ignorant. Even 'working hard' would have been an exaggeration, but this, this is a folly. Indeed, 'punished' might be ill-used, and your tactic was to mimic the very behavior that you were set against? Christ, it's almost like centring yourself on what you're against comes to define you.

If fed a different meal, the 'overwhelming majority' would praise those who leech off the state, and would think it unfair that a select few rich men take a majority of the benefits, leaving us to fight amongst ourselves for the scraps.

The Liberal Democrats have started a consultation process on what the parties next manifesto should look like. Its open to non-members and I thought everyone could benefit from you lads giving views.

https://libdems.getfeedback.com/r/jKh47Fw8

It asks an interesting question: What would you spend £2 billion on?

I thought about putting the money towards adult education programs. Things like the Open University are fundamentally good ideas that gives people who otherwise can't study because of career and family commitments the chance to learn new skills and achieve lifelong learning. It sounds non-controversial but I'm sure there is ample chance to start a cunt-off on that idea.

Another interesting question is that it asks whether the Lib Dems should focus on staying in the European Union or on what Brexit should now be. An interesting option given the party is fervently pro-EU and I wonder what will fill the vacuum if its abandoned.

It just occurred to me reading this just how much of a current licence for discrimination in the modern world it is to have some historical discrimination you can tack on to.

David Ward's anti sematic remarks were to describe Israel as an apartheid state, whilst not technically apartheid it runs the line so fucking close that only a shill or the pedantically obtuse wouldn't acknowledge it.
It doesn't matter how badly behaved Israel is because there was a genocide that is barely in living memory. Even when they are systematically rounding up the Palestinians into ghettos denying them the basic needs for life, and culling them every couple of years.

It's like the world is children that don't understand that when someone says 'don't pick on X or bully Y' what the moral is. That the lesson is there is some sort of special quality to X and Y and not 'that you shouldn't pick on or bully anyone'. It's a fucking embarrassment we've taken a step backwards from being able to understand why things are right and wrong to just simply parroting the circumstances they were applied in the past. I can’t stand how much Israel hides behind this shit, and they get away with it.

That entirely depends on how you value a vote. If you assume that the only thing that matters is the majority, then votes in some places make more difference than others. But this approach ignores the substantial data operations that parties are now running. The Conservatives aren't putting out policies friendly to old white people because they're the party of old white people. They're doing it because they vote and vote reliably. By at least putting a ballot paper in the box, regardless of whether or not you cast a valid vote or drew a massive cock, there's a record that you voted, and the parties know that someone like you voted. It sends a signal that your vote is on the market for anyone that cares to woo you.

In 2010, the under-30s outnumbered the over-65s by around a million, but the latter outvoted the former by over three million. Of the eligible under-30s, around two-thirds were registered to vote, and half of those turned out. Of the eligible over-65s, almost all were registered and around three-quarters of those turned out. Theresa May is appealing to old people, who vote in large numbers, and Kippers, who are highly motivated. Jeremy Corbyn is most popular with the young, who by and large don't vote. Which of those strategies is likely to pay off?

In short, if you think you're getting a bad deal, and you don't vote, then the two are probably related.

The truth is rassssssssssisssssssssssssssssssss now. It doesn't matter if he states simple facts. All must submit to the demands of the Party and their narrative of ever shifting reality and history, written to suit their current plans. Reality is ignored. Study of reality instead of the model they construct to replace it is forbidden. Facts must be buried. Dangerous commies are good at burying stuff, often millions of the dead they murdered, but also facts.

Which incident are you referring to? Clearly not the Hitler thing since those were only facts in the alternative sense.

Wikileaks is just a publisher with a strong level of control from leakers on when the information they share can be released. Beyond that its just speculation, I mean you wonder what the Russians could offer with good reason because its not like they can stage a rescue.

Who is going to replace Dimbleby when he retires anyway? It seems like the BBC is going to have a real problem in a few years time not just with him but also Andrew Neil.

Huw Edwards was lined up to do the election in 2020, and is still the preferred successor for election night. I could see Marr taking on QT. He has the tenor to chair the debate and the hands to point at the audience members. John Humphrys has filled in before but he's only a few years younger than Dimbleby. Based on his performances on Newsnight, I'd keep an eye on James O'Brien.

My personal theory based on observations in 2010 and 2015 is that Dimbleby is actually dead and has been replaced by a robot. There's no way a 77 year old could have kept going from 10pm to 6pm with only a couple of hours sleep in the middle.
