Revealed: Breathalyzer Test Is "Fake Science" — What's NOT Fake Today?
Activist Post | thelastamericanvagabond.com | 2019-11-10
So much of what we are confronted with in the mainstream media and from government sources is fake. So much so, that the question should be: what is NOT fake? Apparently, the science behind the much-touted breathalyzer used by police to nab drunk drivers ALSO can be added to the list of fakery. Given how …

The Crass Warfare of Billionaires Against Sanders and Warren
Norman Solomon | counterpunch.org | 2019-11-08
For many decades, any politician daring to fight for economic justice was liable to be denounced for engaging in "class warfare." It was always a grimly laughable accusation, coming from wealthy elites as well as their functionaries in corporate media and elective office. In the real world, class warfare — or whatever you want to…

Is 'OK Boomer' the 'New N-Word,' or Are Millennials Still Destroying Everything? – How media coverage of intergenerational divides obscures class conflict
Alan MacLeod | fair.org | 2019-11-08
by Alan MacLeod Dividing generations? That's our job, say corporate media (NBC, 11/7/19). | In recent times, media have taken a great interest in highlighting and even generating intergenerational fighting. One example is the focus on the "OK boomer" meme, a witty two-word comeback gaining popularity on the internet. "OK boomer" is a pithy, cutting retort millennials (those born between 1981–96) and Generation Z (those "Zoomers" born even later than 1996) give to those born during the baby boom (…

John McMurtry | counterpunch.org | 2019-11-08
For months during and after Canada's 2019 federal election campaign, corporate media provided daily frontline news space for non-stop Alberta demands for more tar-sands export infrastructure through British Columbia, as well as discrediting stories on the Trudeau government for questionable legal protection of a Quebec big business to his playing blackface in a youthful costume.

Transcript of US ambassador to Ukraine reveals leaked 'smoking gun' testimony based on hearsay & 'fake news' media
rt.com | 2019-11-07
Impeachment testimony from former US ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor reveals the fatal 'quid pro quo' at the center of the probe rests on mere hearsay, even as Taylor's words are held up as a smoking gun by Trump's enemies. | In the course of his October 22 deposition, made public on Wednesday, Taylor explains it was his "clear understanding" that "security assistance money would not come" until Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky "committed to pursue the investigation" of natural gas firm Burisma Hol…

Shutterstock Employees Fight Company's New Chinese Search Blacklist
Sam Biddle | theintercept.com | 2019-11-06
Shutterstock, the well-known online purveyor of stock images and photographs, is the latest U.S. company to willingly support China's censorship regime, blocking searches that might offend the country's authoritarian government, The Intercept has learned. | The publicly traded company built a $639 million-per-year business on the strength of its vast — sometimes comically vast — catalog of images depicting virtually anything a blogger or advertiser could imagine. The company now does business in more than 150 countries. But in China, there is now a very small, very significant gap in Shutterstock's of…

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. Perhaps they should make her CEO. | Senator Warren (D-Massachusetts), who has vowed to break up tech giants she deems too large or powerful, took to Twitter on Tuesday to denounce the platform's upcoming policy change banning all political ads, arguing the new rule helps the spread of misinformation about climate change. | "Twitter's new ad policy will allow fossil fuel companies to buy ads defending themselves and spreading…

Media Conceal Chile's State Criminality, Delegitimize Bolivian Democracy
Lucas Koerner | fair.org | 2019-11-05
by Lucas Koerner Chilean protester beaten by government forces (Twitter, 10/21/19) | 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 Sa…
