I didn't say I would, I said the people who live there will, and it's because they're used to being dirt poor and uneducated already.

Congrats. No matter your intent, you just helped continue an authoritarian message to not trust the news, which ultimately hurts a democratic society.

And you just perpetuated the message that anyone who sees contradictions in the media is a dangerous radical.

This may not be the primary reason. But Stormy Daniels, a stripper that slept with the President of the US, in her book that was released Tuesday described the president penis as looking like the Toad mushroom character from Mario cart. It was referenced a lot over the past two days on CNN.

I don't want sexual acts to be excused, either.

But I also want them to be testified to in this case before Congress, and the evidence placed into public record after being checked for veracity. Otherwise, the accuser is given power over the accused they do not deserve.

Telling a newspaper a story and getting it printed should be no substitute for actual legal proceedings, especially in this serious an act.

I've been accused of defending Republicans since Trump got elected but when the bar of proof is this low simply asking questions at all counts as "defending" them apparently.

The episode of Frasier where he accidentally ends up in a gay relationship with Patrick Stewart. Back in high school I was like, "Frasier's so dumb to turn him down at the end of the episode, he seems perfect so why not give it a try at least? If I was gay I'd date Stewart. Shame I'm not gay or anything."

Either way, your experiences sound eeirely similar to mine.

Hmm that looks pretty nice actually, kind of an 80s disco/neon vibe as well. Do you know where I can get that?

He is also suing Musk in the UK court system

The English lawsuit may move more quickly than its US counterpart. There is also a different burden of proof: It will be up to Musk to prove the allegations he made against Unsworth are true, while the British diving specialist will only need to show that the Tesla CEO caused serious harm to his reputation.

Wait, so on a tangent, with the way that's worded does that mean in the UK you can be sued for making true allegations that harm someone's reputation? Serious question.

3 points · 4 days ago · edited 4 days ago

Yes. IANAL but I come from a country where English style libel lawsuits have been routinely used for political ends.

Under English (not sure about Scottish law which is a bit different) and English-tradition legal systems you can sue for any alleged libel. The burden of proof is on the person making the allegations. But assuming they have proof, this proof will then be placed on record for the court.

But in the US I'm pretty sure you can sue for libel in the same way, the difference being that in the US the burden of proof is on the person allegedly libeled to demonstrate that this has negatively impacted their reputation.

So as I understand it, in this case, in an English court Elon has to prove that his allegations were true. In a US court the diver would have to prove Elon was making false allegations and that his reputation had been damaged as a result.

Edited to add as per u/Codoro that in the UK itself libel law works differently for public figures, eg members of government, state officials etc- if you are one you're generally fair game for allegations against your behaviour as a public figure. The diver is, of course, not a public figure so this doesn't apply to him.

IAANAL but it works differently here depending on if you are a private or person. So politicians are mostly fair game but since this guy is just a rescue dude he'd have a much easier times suing.

Why does news media need to be so sensational? I remember being bored when my parents watched the news as a kid because it seemed so mundane.

Hurricane relief is a job, the people working it are given a mission and some tools to navigate the obstacles from when they get their orders and Mission Complete. Maybe that’s too boring for what people expect to see on news channels nowadays. I think it’s pretty interesting though, what’s the process look like for the person to go from working their regular job to flying a helicopter snatching people off a roof or giving people medical attention etc. What’re the challenges these people face? Idk, like where do they park?

How did that person get stuck on their roof anyway? Between the mayor, weatherman, governor telling you to leave a week ago, even looking at the radar for yourself, why does this person still need rescued?

What is the news supposed to be? Does it always have to be entertaining?

You ever see what disaster relief looks like after the water is gone? There’s a lot of shit all over the place and it needs to be picked up and put on trucks and taken away. It looks like people bending over. Picking something up and moving it somewhere else. Pretty boring tbh, maybe the thing needs to be sensational enough for it to be news worthy. What’s a “reporter’s” job look like when they’re not on camera?

I worked in the news for a few years. The answer is unironically 9/11. Most news before then was local and relatively isolated, but the combo of such a high profile terror attack and the Internet pivoted the focus of news from mostly local to paying attention to everything everywhere with some local thrown in for flavor. So now if town a has a sleepy news day because nothing is going wrong, they can get video from towns b through z about how terrible and awful things are and the only way to stay safe is to stay informed and don't change that dial!

I still work in news now. Most smaller stations don't have the resources to send out multiple reporters/photographers on the weekends so they fill out their shows with national and "trending" news from wire and video services. In some markets you might be lucky to get five minutes of coverage on local stories (not counting weather).

Yeah, weather is so huge now because most local sources don't have enough to fill.a whole hour, much less satisfy the 24 hour news beast
