Really enjoyably written piece, regardless of my disagreement with it's assertion that Facebook can serve responsibly, particularly alleging such "total lack of self-awareness" simultaneously mining even it's users phone call information. How can anything be entrusted when weekly the real numbers of leaked users are increasing by the millions? We haven't hit the "sorry" bottom yet, imo.

Facebook's decision to accept "responsibilities" in the news realm, even in this rudimentary and characteristically disingenuous way, has mind-blowing implications for a country that has functioned without a true media regulator for most of its history.
Someone the ideological opposite of Pei.

Also, I don't know if I've posted this theory before, but the masses of PC hacking up to the Trump election might be related to a specific effort of decentralized mining of elder citizens based on provoking authority obedient behavior. In short, their computers have contracted a type of ransomeware forcing popups and even sirens using different psychological techniques to trick them into calling the number in the popup. Often to get the user to believe what they are seeing is a legitimate Microsoft error.

But since these machines are more often relatively old, they seemed more specifically used to congest network behavior, possibly for other levels of falsification and insertion. Rather than legitimately mining the machine for personal data they more often trick the user into providing their credit card data to perform further "work" and often make out with several hundred dollars, some even remove their popup generator. Several OS hijacking displayed popup alerts providing phone numbers that appear to correlate with business in and around New Jersey. I presumed it was an intelligence operation happening as an invasion-level event. This was the height of the Cambridge Analytica data emphasizing how low they could take the propaganda.

Hey everyone, here is a Sandy Hook crisis actor. It appears that mister Robbie Parker is getting into character for the cameras at :30.

Their protest signs read 'We love our public schools', 'Yes for funding', 'Support our schools!', 'Fund Public Education'.

.. Members of the teachers union also were critical of Bevin's vetoes of budget and revenue bills, both of which the union said are crucial to funding public education.

On Friday night, legislators in the Republican-controlled Senate voted to override the vetoes.

"We acknowledge neither bill gives the citizens of the Commonwealth everything that our students, their parents and our communities need." the Kentucky Education Association said on Facebook. "However, both bills provide much needed P-12 funding for the next biennium."

The governor tweeted his disapproval.

"We have time to do this correctly. The people of Kentucky deserve nothing less. Transparency makes for good policy AND good politics," he wrote. "I have met with House and Senate leaders all week to propose more responsible ways to pay for 100% of the requested education funding. Crickets."

"Crickets"! Such a personal way to end it's tweet.

"I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them," the governor said, according to CNN affiliate WDRB.
"I guarantee you somewhere today, a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent didn't have any money to take care of them," he continued. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children."
He also claimed that some children were "introduced to drugs."
Where were those teachers when the introduction drugs were being passed out? Or the sexual victimization? They were protesting to fund their jobs and keep their pensions from being raided, the nerve!
