Chile and Bolivia Reports Expose Western Media's Rank Hypocrisy
Staff | truthdig.com | 2019-11-06
Chile's anti-neoliberal rebellion is entering its third week, and the brutal crackdown continues. Hard-right President Sebastian Piñera and his generals have effectively decreed the country's oligarch-dominated democracy out of existence by sending soldiers into the streets to kill, maim and torture their own people. | And, for the most part, the Western corporate media blackout persists unabated. | October 25's historic 1.2 million–person march in Santiago–the largest since the end of the dictatorship–has forced some outlets to begin to acknowledge state violence. But corporate journalists cont…

'Ban things I don't like': Elizabeth Warren slams Twitter's new ban on political ads after urging Facebook to censor opponents
rt.com | 2019-11-06
Democratic 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren can't seem to make up her mind on the correct course for big tech, first attacking Facebook's ad policies as too lax, then Twitter's as too strict.

Is collusion still a thing? Washington Post publishing 'illustrated Mueller report' book
rt.com | 2019-11-05
Haven't got enough 'Russiagate' already? Need the ideal Christmas gift for the unsatisfied Democrat in your life? Well how about a copy of the Mueller report, soon available in graphic novel form! | Special Counsel Robert Mueller's two-year probe found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the run-up to the 2016 election, and insufficient evidence that Trump obstructed the investigation itself.

rt.com | 2019-11-04
Facebook has rebranded as all-caps FACEBOOK in order to remind people "which company makes the products they use," inviting mockery from social media as it dodges the problems plaguing the billion-user mega-platform. | Facebook will slap the new all-caps logo in a thin-lettered typeface on its subsidiaries, while its old logo will remain the identifier for the Facebook app and social network, the social media behemoth announced on Monday. | As for the issues that have seen CEO Mark Zuckerberg hauled into Congress and raked over the coals by Facebook users?
