“Liking” the wrong post could get you fired

Clicking “Like” on a social media post that contains controversial commentary may get you fired from your job. This has happened in the past and may happen to some police officers who liked a controversial post from a former police officer that participated in the insurrection and attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Social media shuts down Trump

Most online social media platforms have taken steps to remove Trump’s access, as well as insurrectionists and their supporters, from using social media platforms. The problem is that social media is THE DRIVER of the breakdown of society.

By hiding behind Section 230 exemption: Social media companies aid and abet cryptocurrency scams

Woz sues Youtube over the proliferation of Youtube channels where criminals use old videos of him speaking about crytocurrencies to encourage people to send (and lose) their money to secret digital currency accounts.

Revisiting an old topic: “How White Supremacists incited panic and fear using social media propaganda at the University of Missouri – Social Panic”

Back in 2016, fake social media posts from fake social media accounts were used to incite fear and hysteria, with attempts to start riots. I documented this in detail back in 2016.

Today we again have fake social media posts being used to incite violence, looting, arson and anarchy – none of which leads to productive solutions to bona fide injustices and societal problems. Social media is playing a central role in this non-productive destruction of our society – and is not providing a platform for problem resolution.

Begging the Question Fallacy: Boeing, after showing us who they are, says this is not who they are

After Boeing’s internal records show employees criticizing the safety of the 737 MAX, Boeing insists “this is not who we are”. This is known as the “begging the question” fallacy, which is to assert that something is true, in spite of actual events, and assert everyone agrees with this. This method is extremely common in corporate and government propaganda efforts.

Social media: A tweet that caused a brain seizure

Social media: A tweet that caused a brain seizure

An appalling sick individual sent a flashing GIF pattern to a person with epilepsy, causing an epileptic brain seizure with long term after effects. The true weaponization of social media. The perpetrator is expected to plead guilty to aggravated assault. Sadly, others have used this method to target even more victims. Absolutely disgusting, appalling and sick.

Journalism: When fictional news is life threatening – #CNBC earns an F for reckless errors in reporting

Perennial fictional news reporter CNBC tops them all in an article about the shortage of epinephrine auto-injectors (also known by the brand name Epi-Pen).

They illustrate the article with a photo of a child being injected with insulin in the arm – but falsely label it as a child receiving an EpiPen injection. Epinephrine auto injectors are used on the thigh muscle, not the arm.

CNBC made a reckless and dangerous error that could be life threatening by training the public to misuse an EpiPen. The original photo they used was clearly labeled as an insulin injection but CNBC intentionally and false changed it to say it is an EpiPen injection.
