• Walter Isaacson on AI's implications for journalism: This could be a 'godsend' for good journalism - YouTube
    ‘The principles of copyright we have apply, to AI and to all new techs.’ This could be good for good journalism. We just had a decade where good journalism ‘has been decimated by the internet because the business model doesn’t work anymore. That's why Time Magazine is so thin.' But now you can licence your content if you send someone to the ground in Gaza to report. And there will be competition among AI services to rewrite it.
    To prevent unwanted scraping, publishers can just slide false information articles into the library, and only they have tabs on which ones.

    [The Biden admin] had total control of the media discourse (controlling all platforms) until Elon bought Twitter on a whim, just because he cares a lot about free speech. They're so upset with Elon for opening up free speech. - All-In Podcast

    NYT getting criticism for editing a statement by Hunter Biden taking out the key word ‘financially’ and just printing ‘Let me state as clearly as I can. My father was not involved in my business.’ Breaking basic journalistic standards. Who took out the word? ‘They bury their corrections’ #NYT
  • Reportedly, US drone strike killed an aid worker and children

    According to NYT.

    DailymailUK: 'The drone strike that the Pentagon claimed killed an ISIS-K suicide bomber in Kabul actually targeted an aid worker who had filled his car with water jugs, rather than explosives, according to a shocking new report.'

    According to the family, 10 were killed in that car, although the Pentagon says 3 civilians.

    Congresswoman Ilhan Omar  wrote of a recent drone strike (I don't know if it was the same strike):

    "This is the lastest in 20 years of innocent lives taken and children orphaned in Afghanistan and covert drone warfare around the world. Impunity for these attacks continues to create a neverending cycle of violence and retribution. Where should these victims go to seek justice?"
