How Occupy Wall Street Cost Me My Job

You don't fire someone for potentially iffy cause if you can just lay them off due to budget cutbacks. One is majorly lawyer-uppable and the other mostly isn't. I've managed hiring/firing and this is a no-brainer. Also, if you have a choice as to firing someone for cause over poor job performance as opposed to political controversy, you always go with poor performance, which will be harder to defeat in court. Firing someone for political expression on their own time is the fastest way to lawsuits and bad publicity. Fired NPR host sees "McCarthyism" - Occupy Wall Street. UPDATED BELOW Lisa Simeone, host of two cultural programs on National Public Radio, was fired from one of her positions last night for her leading role in the Freedom Plaza occupation in Washington, D.C.

Fired NPR host sees "McCarthyism" - Occupy Wall Street

The proximate cause was a series of blogs posts in the Daily Caller asserting that she had violated NPR’s code of ethics, an allegation which Simeone denies. “It overblown. Everyone’s overreacting,” Simeone told Salon in a phone interview. “It’s like McCarthyism.” Simeone, a former weekend host of NPR’s “All Things Considered” show, had not worked directly for the network since 2002. Occupy DC Spokeswoman. It is still unclear what, if any, action National Public Radio will take to handle the ethics violations of one of its member stations’ employees, Lisa Simeone.

Occupy DC Spokeswoman

Simeone, who is technically a contract employee for Charlotte, North Carolina public radio station WDAV, has broken NPR’s ethics policy by acting as a spokeswoman for Occupy DC group “October 2011” — the group currently “occupying” Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. NPR spokeswoman Anna Christopher told The Daily Caller the radio network is considering taking action. “We’re in conversations with WDAV about how they intend to handle this,” Christopher said in an email. “We of course take this issue very seriously.” NYT: Bonuses Worthy of Protest for Gannett and Tribune Executives.

But the things he taught me while I was in college have left me with a permanent interest in what it means when artists put compelling words in their villains’ mouths. And goodness is Christopher Nolan doing a lot of that in the first full-length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises: Will Nolan's 'Dark Knight Rises' occupy Wall Street? "The Dark Knight Rises," Christopher Nolan's third film in the Batman trilogy, has been shooting in Los Angeles in recent weeks.

Occupy Protest Shuts Down Harvard Yard

Egertsrom teaches the basics of "General Assemblies" while facilitating a conversation Wednesday night on the Law School campus. UPDATED 4:34 a.m. 11/10/11 A tent city was hastily constructed in front of University Hall Wednesday night during a tense dialogue between “Occupy Harvard” protesters and Dean of Student Life Suzy M. Nelson. Why We Need Occupy Harvard. I didn’t expect to support Occupy Harvard.

Why We Need Occupy Harvard

While I agree wholeheartedly with the broader Occupy movement’s critique of the financial industry and think the current level of economic inequality in the United States is beyond defense, I had strategic reservations. I thought the occupiers should have targeted members of Congress with the power to pass legislation benefiting the 99 percent, rather that banks that aren’t going to be persuaded of their own evils anytime soon.

Occupiers, I reasoned, should get up in the faces of the people actually holding the cards. But Occupy Harvard is doing just that, by congregating in front of University and Massachusetts Halls, where the people with the power to change course are working. Spanish government accused of purging critics from national radio and TV. A government making a raft of public spending cuts might not be expected to win many friends.

Spanish government accused of purging critics from national radio and TV

But critics of Mariano Rajoy's rightwing Partido Popular (PP) claim that a series of departures from Spain's leading state broadcasting organisations are a sign that it will not tolerate any criticism. A number of journalists who have presumed to question the administration's austerity policy have been purged from the national RTVE radio and TV channel. And this weekend the most high-profile exit in recent months – that of Ana Pastor, the presenter of Los Desayunos de TVE, a popular breakfast news magazine programme – was announced. Spanish politicians tend to get an easy ride from the press and rarely face a grilling.

NOSop 3 - Spaanse presentatrice ontslagen want `te kritisch´ Hackgate, power elites and the limits of the “corruption” critique. Just days before the first revelations of hackgate started to emerge, I remarked to a left-wing friend of mine impatient at the failure of the causes we share to gain any wider traction, that it was nearly always “corruption” scandals involving elites rather than the power of reasoned critique which opened up a window for profound and lasting change.

Hackgate, power elites and the limits of the “corruption” critique

The observation stemmed from the insight of Robert Darnton, and other scholars of revolutionary France, that it was not so much the rational arguments of the Enlightenment philosophes, but the relentless attacks of the libellistes – the French gutter press - on the greed and depravity of Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette, which led to the French populace’s disillusionment with monarchy and ultimately the downfall of the ancien regime. More recently, we saw in Egypt, how the malfeasance of Mubarak’s government, as exposed by Wikileaks and others, played such an important role in spurring on the protesters.

BBC's complicity in tax avoidance

2013: The Year the BBC Looked Like a Bogus Signer. One of the most significant events of 2013 was the memorial for Nelson Mandela, marred by the bogus interpreter, who made random movements while standing alongside those paying tribute. The BBC covered Mandela's death and the aftermath extensively - as we would hope for one of the great figures of the 20th Century. It also took delight in reporting on fake signer Thamsanqa Jantjie.

While everyones gaze is diverted. US media yet again conceals newsworthy government secrets. The US media, over the last decade (at least), has repeatedly acted to conceal newsworthy information it obtains about the actions of the US government. In each instance, the self-proclaimed adversarial press corps conceals these facts at the behest of the US government, based on patently absurd claims that reporting them will harm US national security.

In each instance, what this media concealment actually accomplishes is enabling the dissemination of significant government falsehoods without challenge, and permitting the continuation of government deceit and even illegality. One of the most notorious examples was in mid-2004 when the New York Times discovered - thanks to a courageous DOJ whistleblower - that the Bush administration was eavesdropping on the electronic communications of Americans without the warrants required by the criminal law.
