Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-11-16

  • @conradoldcorn I see only issues re: lists. This is not lists, but the users shown under "New Followers". Am I understanding this ? #
  • @tweetdeck…after I block someone, shouldn't that person disappear from the column "Followers" or change the "Block" to "Unblock"? #
  • Like @keitholbermann said in his comment, the very selection of what is news worthy IS itself a "violation" of objectivity #
  • the risk with allowing passion is that one often crosses that sacred "line" of objectivity. I prefer news help me to see wrong where it is #
  • @keitholbermann 's complaint on much of the media is that they try to pretend there is such a thing as complete objectivity #
  • I think it important to do some challenging of disinformation campaigns, which is FOx News' middle name for me #
  • @insanityreport I try not 2 continue back& forth on Twitter so as not 2 pollute my stream too much..be glad to continue Direct if you follow #
  • What one sees as "The very nature of objectivity" is itself a subjective judgment #
  • @insanityreport you beg the question. Objectivity is a MYTH. All HUMAN communication includes subjectivity #
  • @insanityreport but often they ARE (ie Murrow on McCarthy, anyone questioning rationale for invading Iraq) truth promotion REQUIRES passion #
  • @insanityreport yeah, what YOU think is "News"….the point seems lost on you #
  • @insanityreport Yeah, what YOU call "news", which is the "View from nowhere"…..you believe the myth #
  • Amusing to see all the people who believe in the #viewFromNowhere being apalled at Olbermann. #
  • @InsanityReport Geez, you're trying to pretend all your complaints are NOT subjective? Sheesh! #
  • @InsanityReport Not the same people saying those two things. Main point is that "objectivity" is most often an excuse not to take any side #
  • RT @jayrosen_nyu: [KO]'s special comment tonight tried 2 deny "View from Nowhere" any purchase on greatness I say he succeeded. You? //Yup #
  • Linkk to Olbermann's Comment: http://on.msnbc.com/aBvxPl #
  • Was preparing to go to sleep until I heard @KeithOlbermann's SpecialComment. Wow. As usual, I find myself in agreement & also enraged. #
  • @RomeJHartman Looks more like @KeithOlbermann called TK out on his "whiff" on Iraq debacle. Ouch! Guess "Nightline" had gone "night-night" #
  • @digital_boy Starting pitcher is an important position. Starting pitchers have won rookie of the year several times. Bad argument, sorry. #
  • Posey played 2/3 of a season to boot. Ridculous selection. FAR MORE rookies have matched his stats than have Garcia's as a starting pitcher #
  • "Buster Posey beat out Jason Heyward for rookie of the year" MLB.com says. I say nieher of them held a candle to SL pitcher Jaime Garcia #
  • haha see http://bit.ly/c9ZyK0 I "Rebukiate" them for that move #
  • HBO should utilize effort they expend to purge Youtube of all Real Time clips & make new episodes available for purchase in a timely manner #
  • Zuck or the other guy really didn't answer how the social graph is impacted by use of the mail feaure….oh…someone is REASKING it now #
  • interesting question about use of this "mail" function to inform the social graph #
  • live.twit.tv is covering the facebook "email" announcement..taking questions now #
  • More accurately, the facebook "important mail" feature has already been done recently in Gmal Priority Inbox #
  • Facebook's email announcement demo showing what looks exactly like the function of Gmail priority mail #
  • @Brad_King I see you got hit by this Adam guy yourself. Mr. "Fair and Balanced" who thinks he's Mr, Balanced. Baloney. #
  • @digital_boy ie. I don't equate Pat Robertson w/ Shane Claiborne. 1 sees through a lens I consider tobe much closer 2the truth than other #
  • Fox also invents and promotes right wing memes; ie. they prey on fear. #
  • @digital_boy Not at all. There' s accuracy for one. And there is simply more accuracy on MSNBC than Fox. Fox is deceptive. #
  • More fodder for the "View From Nowhere" back and forth between news media pundits, reporters, commentators, and news tonight on Olbermann #
  • “@KeithOlbermann: FYI Special Com'mt tom'rw night: Koppel, False Equivalence, & his part in the real "death of news"”//should be interesting #
  • This is awfully close to how news orgs are now defending their actions #
  • seems to me that wrongdoings are best not analyzed from some "middle ground" #
  • @larryhol re:"death of real news" – http://tinyurl.com/2uwz4bc I think he omits quotes around "real news"..opinionless news? I doubt it #
  • My FB profile pic is great, but very basic. So beware of tricks to get you to click in #
  • I just got a msg from someone on FB who never sends me msgs, saying my profile pic is in the 100 worst on FB list. Beware. My pic is basic #
  • I wonder if Oak Ridge has a traffic school I can take to get this taken off my record (haven't had a ticket in over 3 years) #
  • Just got a speeding ticket by mail via photo surveillance in Oak Ridge TN for 51 in a 35 zone (heading out of town after visiting a friend) #
  • I'm moving all this to a blog post. Huckabee just keeps going with this nonsense. I can't sit still. Link coming after I post #GOPfail #
  • OK. Enough of that. Sorry. #notlookingforward2NewHouseReps #
  • So the government is tellling us how many hours of sleep we have to have per night? What utter nonsense and inanity, Huckabee! Get a grip! #
  • What political hypocrisy! Blindness!!! Think this pushes my buttons? (re: Huckabee's GOP blindness on Maher last night) #
  • Huckabee: We ought not to "force people into a system they don't want to be in". BS. Like U going to "force me to be in" YOURS? #
  • "Free market fundamentalism" is the golden calf of our society. People are GREEDY. Duh!!!! "Love of money is……." uhhhhhh #
  • Huckabee: That "traditional marketplace" u speak of IS the problem. Greed & "busines" have contin'd 2 corrupt it until it is unsustainable #
  • Huckabee doesn't get the point Maher made last night on Real Time: Our HealthCare system wants to make profits off sick people. #GOPFail #
  • I uploaded a YouTube video — Post Rally Part 2 http://youtu.be/ECO4_O9qcrI?a #
