  • Advertising Activism Has Impact by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 01/07/2019)

    Tom - that's a fantastic cookie cutter Alt Right response. Do you have a blog where you write more lengthy commentary of this sort, or do you just post troll comments? When is GCTV going live? Because I'm sure I can post on your blog as well. In terms of free speech, Tucker has the right to say whatever he wants. But he has no 'right' to broadcast on TV, and advertisers have no obligation to sponsor his hate. It is - after all - a free market.

  • Pizza, Rent -- And Trump by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/17/2018)

    Tell me what part of this story isn't accurate? As the Trumps Dodged Taxes, Their Tenants Paid a Price

  • Information Warfare Comes Home by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/03/2018)

    Kenny - so if I read you correctly - you're suggesting a federal campaign like the war on drugs for social media? "Don't Do Facebook!" Don't Do Reddit!" Don't Do Instagram!" Don't Do SnapChat!" - have you considered going into the t-shirt business? You could make a fortune. 

  • Information Warfare Comes Home by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/03/2018)

    Thank you, Henry - very well put. And agree that the bots confuse the algorithms, which then increase the 'popularity' of the Fake material through popularity. The problem is that the Fakers are highly incentivized to invent and re-invent novel solutions, while the platforms are only moderately interested in fighting a losing battle.  

  • Facebook Needs You Now by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 11/26/2018)

    Kenny - you do realize there's more than a bit of irony in the fact that you're writing big long comments on a website, and with a moment's looking at your profile, you've been doing that other posts as well (often the same argument - with the same sentences. Ie: Acosta assaulted an intern.) So if you think that having people connected via the internets is somehow a health risk, you can simply sign off. Then, no problem with Facebook for you any longer. 

  • Your Power to Vote With Your Wallet, Too by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 10/29/2018)

    Ok, let's trade examples. Here are some examples of GOP voter suppression efforts.-On Monday, former President Jimmy Carter urged Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp to recuse himself from overseeing the state’s elections. Voter suppression practices include:Closing polling places in communities of colorPurging eligible voters from the rolls without their knowledgeBarring felons from votingVoter ID lawsEliminating early votingHere's a quick overview, feel free to share any democratic voter suppression issues you can find.Kansas Access to the ballot box in November will be more difficult for some people in Dodge City, where Hispanics now make up 60 percent of its populationNorth Carolina thanks to Republican rule, and a new law is making the state even less democratic. According to the state board of elections, Over 60% of North Carolinians voted early in 2016, and that will be much more difficult to do nowNevada [The state sends] postcards to…voters. The [original] postcards were not forwardable-meaning if a voter moved, the postcard wouldn’t follow them to their new address. Postcards that came back as non-deliverable resulted in the state sending a forwardable postcard to the old address.Georgia In Georgia, election officials have suspended more than 50,000 applications to register to vote, most of them for black voters, under a rigorous Republican-backed law that requires personal information to exactly match driver’s license or Social Security records.Texas More than 2,000 potential voters in Texas had their voters’ registration applications unfairly rejected by the Texas Secretary of State, a national advocacy group said Wednesday.North Dakota On Tuesday, the Supreme Court chose to stand by and allow the war against voting to continue. Just a little less than a month before midterm elections that will determine control of Congress, the court decided not to block North Dakota’s restrictive voter ID law, which will make it harder for people in that state to cast their ballots.

  • The Comeback: Entering The Jerk Store by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 10/22/2018)

    I'm not sure how the rising Dow helps working people, with salaries flat, or declining. My point was - and is - that Mr. "Loving This Economy" isn't working a minimum wage job I'm pretty sure. 

  • Fox News After Rupert by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 10/15/2018)

    I'm skeptical about gravity, but ever time I try and fight it, I fall down hard. Perhaps you haven't seen the weather reports recently. Hurricanes, Floods, Tornados. There's only so many instances of "weird weather" you can report before the science catches up with you. Pretty sure folks in Florida aren't skeptics.  

  • Why Is The Right Dominating Web Video? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 07/30/2018)

    Without debating that - can you imagine any version of the future where social media doesn't exist? Would the government ban it? (Trump is pretty fond of Twitter), would telco's or smart phone makers block it? Would public companies simply fold up their tent? How does that future exist? 

  • Why Is The Right Dominating Web Video? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 07/30/2018)

    Well, I know who Rush Limbaugh is, if that's what you mean. But radio is wholly different. What you listen to is your business (unless you drive a cab and subject riders to it). Web video is far more interactive and shareable, giving it the tools to be amplified in ways that talk radio never had. Also, keep in mind some of that amplification is bots and fake accounts - so it's possible to think that a post is 'popular' and 'lots of people agree' when it may be those likes and shares are all part of plan to game social media.
