Opinion: Where Does The Latest Social Media Purge Leave The State Of Social Discourse?

Opinion: Where Does The Latest Social Media Purge Leave The State Of Social Discourse? Disobedient Media previously reported the tightening stranglehold of censorship across social media. Unfortunately, events that have taken place since the publication of this writer’s opinion that Julian Assange was the first domino to fall in a series of increasingly draconian censorship measures have far exceeded even this author’s worst expectations.

Forensicator’s Analysis Supports Assange’s Statements On The DNC, Podesta Emails

Forensicator’s Analysis Supports Assange’s Statements On The DNC, Podesta Emails Disobedient Media has closely followed the work of the Forensicator, whose analysis has shed much light on the publications by the Guccifer 2.0 persona for over a year. In view of the more recent work published by the Forensicator regarding potential media collusion with Guccifer 2.0, we are inclined to revisit an interview given by WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange in August of 2016, prior to the publication of the Podesta Emails in October, and the November US Presidential election. During the interview, partially transcribed below, Assange makes a number of...

Deconstructing Campbell’s Smear Campaign Yields A Blueprint For Propaganda: Part Three In Part One, we covered the background and construction of a smear campaign built by Duncan Campbell over the past nine months that managed to make its way past editorial oversight at ComputerWeekly, with the story then gaining some coverage at DefenseOne and TechDirt. In Part Two, we covered the Computer Weekly article itself, highlighting the tricks and techniques used to mislead readers as well as some of the basic misconceptions Campbell created through the consistent use of distortions, omissions and false claims. Since then, Disobedient Media published an...
