A sixty-year saga of frostbite and fake news that follows the no-holds-barred battle between two legendary explorers to reach the North Pole, and the newspapers which stopped at nothing to get–and sell–the story.

Very grateful to receive the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) Early Career Award for my research on the visible and invisible mechanisms of information control in authoritarian states



@Marielle_W@mastodon.social avatar

Such awards tend to reinforce the idea of 'individual excellence' in academic research and push collaboration to the background. I'm immensely grateful to my co-authors, collaborators and network.

Browsing through the news headlines these days is done in 10 seconds. It's all war, and other brutal violence. Sad people are still interested in this. One would think we would want to focus on the more productive and uplifting stuff.

I haven't seen any interviews with her, but / should really be speaking with Kassandra Luciuk about the SS veteran invited to Parliament. Luciuk is a historian (Dalhousie) of the Ukrainian community in 20th-century . She demonstrates that some Cold-War Canadian officials were quite happy for right-wing Ukrainian migrants to use violence against communist labour leaders, also from Ukraine, already in the country.

Why worry about the dangers of AI, when real-life narcissists are destroying America?

From Elon Musk to Donald Trump to Tucker Carlson, egomaniacs are deforming our society — and their narcissism is no longer considered a fault.

When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; -death is a clear possibility.

"There is nothing in journalistic standards that says you have to give a platform for someone to spread lies, even if they are a senator or representative (or even the [ex-]president)...

We do not need to reward bad behavior with airtime...

If there are no consequences, how will we teach that this behavior is reprehensible?"

The iPhone of Meduza's Galina Timchenko was infected with Pegasus spyware in February 2023. The ability of Russian independent journalists to continue their work in exile is under tremendous pressure (Meduza has been operating from Riga since 2014). Yet more evidence how working from within the EU does not necessarily shield them from risk

I've started to read Norman Solomon's 'War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of its Military Machine': https://bookrastinating.com/book/486298/s/war-made-invisible

6% in, the book provides relation through its simple language and many facts. The writing style is lovely: straightforward, illuminating, clarifying.

Jacksonville, FL Sheriff, Mayor, and FBI updating public on racially motivated murder of 3 black victims by a white male. The now dead shooter travelled to Jacksonville to murder black people. He left behind manifestos.


@venitamathias @blackmastodon. I would like the to stop using the word when describing the hate-filled drivel written by these , killers. It lends a kind of dignity, even gravity, to the rantings of murderers.

For years, the media built up Elon Musk and got the public to buy into the myth of his genius. Now the truth of who he is can’t be hidden and changing how they cover Musk isn’t enough.

The media failed us. They not only need to inform the public about the harms of Musk’s empire, but change how they cover the entire tech industry so another grifter can’t replicate his rise. They owe us nothing less.

'The construction of Latin America’s media spaces was not the result of
particular struggles for participation and debate. From the beginning, these spaces were derived from elite power, being conceived as (a) commodities to be exploited by the private sector and (b) mechanisms of political and societal control'

‘The pressure to make public retractions of past statements — there’s something medieval about it.

What does it mean, anyway, to retract what you’ve said? How can anyone categorically state that a thought he once had is no longer valid?’
