CBC #TwitterFiles? Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Tried to Get Twitter to Censor Critics (Video) –



This is not an official Twitter Files report, but it is very similar. Rebel News, a conservative, free-speech news platform in Canada, received documents showing how the CBC used its money and good relations with the Canadian government to try to get Twitter to censor its critics.

You remember that Elon Musk indicated that CBC was 69% government funded (hehe) – so that would be government money that they threatened to withhold.

Seriously, the report is only part of the show and is worth watching in its entirety:

The theme also publishes many papers:

Indeed, Twitter Files veteran Matt Taibbi lends a helping hand:

The response was quick:


We’re not surprised either, but it’s nice to have proof.

The Canadian Constitution states: “Everyone shall have the following fundamental freedoms: freedom of thought, opinion, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media.” Sounds good, but in practice their ideas about freedom of expression are curtailed compared to American ones.

We agree.

They mentioned five blank pages. I wonder if Twitter has a copy of them on the hard drive?

Also note the constant calls on Twitter to censor yourself because government regulation would be worse. This is a common censorship tactic when the government may not get away with doing it directly. For example, the Motion Picture Association of America was reluctant to introduce a rating system for American films, but explicitly cited the fear that the government would try to regulate them as the reason they introduced it. The same can be said for the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, or ESRB, which rates video games, and the Comic Code Authority, which has stifled creativity in comics for years. The latter contained absolute prohibitions that had been in place for decades, including rules such as:

Crimes should never be presented in such a way as to evoke sympathy for the perpetrator, serve to undermine the forces of law and justice, or inspire others to emulate the criminals.

Policemen, judges, civil servants and respected institutions must never be presented in such a way as to cause contempt for established authority.

Special precautions must be taken to avoid mention of physical ailments or deformities.

Divorce should not be treated with humor and presented as desirable.

These various rating boards and even the content restrictions placed on comics might seem like a good idea, but they should never be taken in defiance of government regulation. They should be adopted freely, with maximum social and economic pressure from their parents, not the government.

Besides, this tactic is insidious. For example, you might say, “If you’re a gaming company, why not just fight any rules?” The answer is that this fight costs money, so even assuming they win, they won’t incur the cost of litigation, which assumes they win. The Supreme Court has not always been very supportive of free speech in modern forms of communication. So yes, self-regulation can be better, except when we consider the damage done to freedom of expression.

It’s also a response to the world’s David Frenchuk who pretends that all this social media censorship we’ve seen in the last few years only private share. Very often it is actually the product of government pressure.

Finally, readers with a good memory will remember the name Ezra Levant from his own fight against Canadian censorship:

CBC sounds almost disappointing.

‘Cowboy up’: Chris Sununu urges Trump to stop threatening to skip debate



New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said Thursday that Donald Trump should “become a cowboy” and stop threatening to miss the GOP primary ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Trump is reportedly considering skipping one or both of the first two Republican debates. according to the New York Timespartly because he doesn’t want to give his rivals a chance to stand out in the race.

But in an interview with CBS News, Sununu argued that Trump should show up.

“You know, the message is very clear – cowboy, get in the saddle,” the GOP governor said. “Show us what you’ve got, because if you want to be the leader of this country and the leader of the free world, you have to show that you can still bring your fastball.”

The former president also allegedly disagrees with Fox News anchor Bret Byer, moderator of the first GOP debate in Milwaukee in August. The Times said he was even more annoyed by the fact that the second event would be held in Southern California at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, which has the Washington Post – and previous target of Trump’s anger — Fred Ryan on the board of trustees.

Sununu said Trump’s recent public appearances, including in New Hampshire, indicate that he no longer has the energy he once had.

“You don’t see the fire,” Sununu insisted, adding that Trump is now “playing the victim” following a New York grand jury’s decision to indict him for complicity in paying silence money to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. General election.

Still, the criminal charges against Trump boosted the former president’s poll ratings, said Sununu, who acknowledged that Trump could end up being his party’s nominee for the White House.

“But I sincerely believe that the Republicans will remember what happened on November 22nd — remember the losses we suffered with him, his candidates and his messages, and say: “We don’t want losers,” Sununu. added.

Members of the Republican Party fared worse in last year’s midterm elections, in part because several of Trump’s far-right candidates ended up falling flat.

A few months ago, Sununu seemed confident that Trump would not be the party’s nominee in the 2024 election.

“It just won’t happen,” he said in March.

Sununu, who himself put forward the idea of ​​running in the 2024 presidential election, told CBS News he would make a decision by June.

TikTok Users Call Recent Weight Loss Trend Videos Fatophobic



The TikTok trend of users pretending to show “before and after” weight loss photos has been criticized by some as fatophobia.

Using the popular CapCut editing tool, trend participants applied an effect called “Big Face” to make their faces appear larger. They then export the resized image to TikTok for a comparison video: a selfie with a big face and the original selfie with the caption “What would I look like if I lost 100 pounds.” In other words, after images are actually photos of how users look at the moment.

The video has been met with criticism from some netizens who say the trend makes fun of plus size people and stigmatizes weight gain.

“People in relatively good shape make fun of fat people,” said Julia Barberi, 31, who posted a critical commentary. video about the trend in TikTok. “This is a terrible filter. It has no positive points. When we constantly see information about weight loss in the media, it only reinforces the idea that we ourselves are not enough.”

This trend comes as some TikTok users continue to struggle with body issues and eating disorders, an issue that has also been a problem on Instagram and Snapchat. On TikTok, posts on For You pages can surprise users with diet and exercise information. In addition, a number of inspirational lifestyle content, usually Get Ready With Me TV series or Clothes of the Day videos, can be found with comments from users dismissing their bodies or comparing themselves to other creators.

A few months ago TikTok “bloated” filters got a similar reaction. TikTok users posted double chin videos before the video moved on to revealing their true colors. Other filters that change people’s faces or bodies have also sparked controversy about how they can contribute to body dysphoria or self-esteem issues.

A TikTok spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

TikTok user Dominique Navarro said that at first she thought the “What would I look like if I lost 100 pounds” videos should be positive.

“Like many people in the comments on these videos, I was initially impressed, went to the profile of the posters, and then quickly realized that a filter had been used to make them fat,” said Navarro, who documents her weight loss journey and discusses fitness. on here TikTok account. “Then I realized that a lot of the comments being encouraged were just satire.”

The comment section of videos participating in the recent trend has generated a wide range of reactions.

Some users, not realizing that this was a joke, cheered and shared anecdotes about their attempts to lose weight.

“You’ve got it, I’m struggling too right now,” one commenter responded to Video. Video maker answered“You got it too! This is a trend but I hope you reach your goals

Others called the videos deaf.

“This trend is never going to be funny, how can you guys not understand that?” one man said.

“It’s strange”, another wrote. “Editing yourself to look a certain way so that your original self looks ‘better’ and you get compliments.”

Navarro said she believes trends like these could be harmful for people struggling with weight or eating disorders.

“Most people suffer from fatphobia, whether they realize it or not,” Navarro said. “People seem to think that being fat is the worst thing you can be in the world, and as someone who has been overweight and underweight, I know that’s not true.”

If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, contact the National Eating Disorders Association at: 1-800-931-2237 at certain times send a NEDA message to 741741 anytime in a crisis or visit NEDA website.

As faith in SCOTUS plummets, Jeannie Thomas gets her new scandal



All in all, The Post reported that Conway’s company, the Polling Company, paid Jeannie Thomas’s company at least $80,000 during the year. It is not clear if any real work has been done on these payments other than the work of Clarence Thomas.

A few months after the Judicial Education Project sent the money to Jeannie Thomas via Conway, they were subpoenaed in the case. Shelby County v. Holder, supporting an attempt to repeal part of the Voting Rights Act. This part of the VRA was eliminated in a 5–4 vote, with Thomas providing the casting vote that put the Judicial Education Project on the winning side.

Thomas didn’t even bother give a competing opinion saying that “the conditions which originally justified [the Voting Rights Act] no longer characterize voting in covered jurisdictions.” and that “overtly discriminatory evasions of federal orders are rare.” According to Thomas, the minority vote and the white vote are “almost parity” and there are many minority candidates, so… no need for a VRA. Further in this opinion, Congress was slapped for continuing to support the VRA.

This is not to say that the Forensic Education Project has not paid off for its money.

Leonard, directly or indirectly involved in a number of cases before the Court, provided The Post with a statement. claiming to be a “dear friend” of Clarence and Virginia Thomas and having known them for many years. Clarence Thomas seems to have some good friends… they all stand next to the checkbooks.

And, as in other cases, when he came across large sums of money, Thomas did not report anything about it. He also took no steps to drop cases involving payments to his wife through Leonard, Conway, or other conservative activists.

on Thursday, report from ProPublica it was revealed that Thomas’s great benefactor, Republican financier and conservative activist Harlan Crow, had paid as much as $150,000 to cover the tuition of the great-nephew whom Thomas was raising. Even though the young man was brought up in Thomas’ home, Crowe claims he paid because he was “less fortunate” and “at risk”. Thomas did not report this gift, although he did report $5,000 someone gave for the education of the same great-nephew. Which is good evidence that Thomas knew that Crowe’s generous gift was over the line.

This discovery follows earlier news this crow bought the land from Clarence Thomas and paid for the modernization of Thomas’s mother’s house. Real estate transactions are one of the few things that Supreme Court justices are required to report in all cases. Thomas didn’t. Not only did Crowe buy the property from Thomas, he paid an amount that appears to be well in excess of fair market value. Considering that Crowe did nothing with the purchased property other than remodeling a house he allegedly bought for Thomas’ mother and allowing her to continue living there rent-free – it’s hard to see this deal as anything other than paying Thomas $133,000.

This happened a week after it turned out that Thomas probably broke the law without revealing the lavish trips and gifts Crowe has given him for over two decades. The value of what Crowe provided to Thomas is estimated to be over $500,000. Thomas released angry response insisting that “Harlan and Katie Crow are some of our closest friends and have been friends for over twenty-five years. As friends, we’ve been joining them on many family trips for over a quarter of a century when we’ve known them.” And it is true; friends sometimes relax together. What is unusual is that one of these friends pays the bill for this vacation. Everyone is lonely. time.

Again, Thomas seems to have a very selective taste in choosing “dear friends”.

On Friday, the President of the Judiciary of the Senate Dick Dublin received a predictably weak response, urging Chief Justice John Roberts to do “something”.

“I hope the Chief Justice understands that something needs to be done,” Durbin said. “The court’s reputation and credibility are at stake.”

It has already passed the “something” stage. The only acceptable action for Thomas is to resign. While this is going on, the DOJ may start collecting a case for either bribery or extortion, because while the Supreme Court may exempt itself from many of those pesky rules that plague smaller courts, what Thomas did is out of the picture. corruption. It’s just corruption.

Dmitry from WarTranslate did the important job of translating hours of Russian and Ukrainian video and audio during the invasion of Ukraine. He joins Marcos and Kerry from London to talk about how he started this work by sifting through various sources. He is one of the few who translates information for an English-speaking audience. Dimitri followed the war from the beginning and watched the evolution of the language and dispatches as the war progressed.
