My recent Twitter thread on @AndresTTapia:
1/ #MediaManipulation: Pre-digital authoritarians seize control of media outlets to directly reach populace without factcheckng; Twitter allows same.
2/ #MediaManipulation: Dispute every single criticism not thru denial but thru similar accusation of greater magnitude toward accuser (I know u r but what am I?).
3/ #MediaManipulation: Sow confusion by making contradictory statements and let them stand in contradiction.
4/ #MediaManipulation: Claim inside knowledge but don’t source facts.
5/ #MediaManipulation: Shift burden of proof when called out (you prove that my made-up facts are not true).
6/ #MediaManipulation: Never admit any error.
7/ #MediaManipulation: Turn mainstream media into mortal enemy.
8/ #MediaManipulation: Delegitimize journalists by saying they lie all the time (“fake news”).
9/ #MediaManipulation: Restrict press access (keep out of pressroom, reduce press pools, stonewall shouted out Qs).
10/ #MediaManipulation: Don’t return media calls to comment on new finding & then blame press for not seeking comment on new finding.
11/ #MediaManipulation: Make shit up. /END
