Russia has presented Evidence Against US, UK and Israel As Being the Actual 9/11 Terrorist According to a retired FXX agent specializing in Israeli counter intel: The type of nuclear devices used on 911 were a modified version of the W-54 nuclear artillery shells that were covertly provided to the Israelis between 1988 and 1998 from US surplus stockpiles illegally exported during the Bush/Clinton era. Chemical analysis done by DOE Sandi was able to identify the chemical/radiation footprint or fingerprint of the warheads based on samples taken after 911 of the fallout at ground zero. (Editor’s note: Nuclear weapon use at ground zero is confirmed from multiple sources) All plutonium based warheads have a chemical fingerprint that can identify the type of design and where the PU was made and how old it is. Only a 2 kiloton device was needed to drop the buildings. Fallout would be minimal and located to within ground zero range only.

TomDispatch Columbia Journalism Review CIVIS Medienstiftung - Home Thom Hartmann Misinformation: Why it sticks and how to fix it Childhood vaccines do not cause autism. Barack Obama was born in the United States. Global warming is confirmed by science. And yet, many people believe claims to the contrary. Why does that kind of misinformation stick? The main reason that misinformation is sticky, according to the researchers, is that rejecting information actually requires cognitive effort. And when we do take the time to thoughtfully evaluate incoming information, there are only a few features that we are likely to pay attention to: Does the information fit with other things I believe in? Misinformation is especially sticky when it conforms to our preexisting political, religious, or social point of view. Even worse, efforts to retract misinformation often backfire, paradoxically amplifying the effect of the erroneous belief. "At an individual level, misinformation about health issues -- for example, unwarranted fears regarding vaccinations or unwarranted trust in alternative medicine -- can do a lot of damage.

Robert Reich Scraping for… by Paul Bradshaw Scraping - getting a computer to capture information from online sources - is one of the most powerful techniques for data-savvy journalists who want to get to the story first, or find exclusives that no one else has spotted. Faster than FOI and more detailed than advanced search techniques, scraping also allows you to grab data that organisations would rather you didn’t have - and put it into a form that allows you to get answers. Scraping for Journalists introduces you to a range of scraping techniques - from very simple scraping techniques which are no more complicated than a spreadsheet formula, to more complex challenges such as scraping databases or hundreds of documents. At every stage you'll see results - but you'll also be building towards more ambitious and powerful tools. You’ll be scraping within 5 minutes of reading the first chapter - but more importantly you'll be learning key principles and techniques for dealing with scraping problems.

Glenn Greenwald: The Death Spiral of Establishment Journalism October 14, 2013 | Like this article? Join our email list: Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email. Like many people, I've spent years writing and speaking about the lethal power-subservient pathologies plaguing establishment journalism in the west. In other words, if the government tells me I shouldn't publish something, who am I as a journalist to disobey? Lest you think that the headline does not fairly represent the content of the column, Blackhurst, in explaining why he would never have allowed his newspaper to publish any of the documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, actually wrote: If the security services insist something is contrary to the public interest, and might harm their operations, who am I (despite my grounding from Watergate onwards) to disbelieve them?" Most people, let alone journalists, would be far too embarrassed to admit they harbor such subservient, obsequious sentiments.
