    FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A cyber-security expert says it could take months before Fulton County fully recovers from a ransomware attack. It’s been nearly three weeks since the county government’s computer system was hacked, disrupting many services. Channel 2′s Bryan Mims was in Roswell where county officials are also saying some personal information may have been leaked. They haven’t said whether it was county employees or residents whose information may have been compromised. Many services are still down. The East Roswell Library is open, but all the computers are out of service.
  • Kamala Harris says she makes sure Biden doesn't get 'sugarcoated' information

    One key job for Vice President Kamala Harris? Ensuring there's no bullshit. That was the assessment that Ron Klain, the former White House Chief of Staff, gave to POLITICO as the outlet interviewed Harris about her role as vice president. Harris, he said, makes sure there's "no one spreading bullshit in the Oval Office." Asking about Klain's comments by POLITICO, Harris concurred, albeit in softer language, saying she ensures President Joe Biden gets information that's "not sugarcoated and not filtered and not through some policy wonk-speak." "I do feel very strongly about that," said Harris. "I have a very keen...
  • Ukraine war: Russians kept in the dark by internet search

    In many places, searching the web is a gateway to a wider world of information, but in Russia, it is part of a system that helps trap people in an alternative reality. Shortly after 20 people were killed in a Russian missile attack on the Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk in June, Lev Gershenzon - a former manager at Russian tech company Yandex - typed the city's name into its search engine to find out more. The results he got back shocked him. "The sources that ranked at the top of the page were strange and obscure," he told the BBC....
  • Musk lays out Twitter mission, sparks debate on content accuracy

    Twitter Inc's new CEO Elon Musk said on Sunday the social media platform's mission was to become the most accurate source of information about the world, sparking debate about how it would achieve that and who determines what is accurate. A flurry of drastic measures including sacking half the staff and charging users that Musk has taken since he took over Twitter in a $44 billion deal just about a week ago has provided some early clues to how the platform will be reshaped by the world's richest person. Some advertisers have pulled spending since the deal was announced, with...

    Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the hearings of the House Select Committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 would show “new information.” Anchor Margaret Brennan asked, “The chairman for the committee investigating the January 6th attack on the US Capitol announced a series of public hearings will be held in June with the very first one scheduled for the 9th. Congressman Adam Kinzinger of Illinois is a member of that committee, and he joins us this morning. Good morning to you. Congressman, do you expect this to be...

    So we’ve got ourselves a Ministry of Truth, and America’s new Dominatrix of Disinformation is a lunatic named Nina Jankowicz.The point I’m about to make is important. This means I need you to focus. So… For just a moment, let’s forget about the terrifying notion of the federal government, especially a government run by extremist Democrats and a corrupt Deep State, creating a “Disinformation Governance Board.” For just a moment, let’s forget that the very same people behind the “Disinformation Governance Board” are the very same people behind the Russia Collusion Hoax, the Global Warming Hoax, the fairy tale about...

    There is a theory kicking around dissident politics that says journalism is best seen as an activity, rather than a profession. It is a form of activism that uses information, real and manufactured, to promote various agendas and ideologies. Contrary to what the media companies used to say, they are not neutral observers speaking truth to power, but power centers promoting agendas that serve their interests. One key point in this argument is that journalists themselves no longer bother pretending they are neutral. The Washington Post still has that silly line “Democracy Dies in Darkness” on its masthead, but it...
  • CDC Officials Admit Agency Has Withheld Critical Covid Information From the Public, Including Data About Breakthrough Infections, Over Fears of “Vaccine Hesitancy”

    Throughout the pandemic, the CDC has diligently maintained a running tally of Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths for the public to view – you know, all of the numbers that make up the majority of virus fear porn.But that information amounts to just a fraction of the data that has been collected by the agency.According to a new report by the New York Times, the CDC has also been collecting much more detailed data about Covid infections that breaks down by age, race, and vaccination status. The critical information would go a long way towards figuring out an end to...

    Members of the Jan. 6 select committee tasked with investigating the deadly attack on the Capitol want Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) to come in and provide information to the panel regarding alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. While the panel did not subpoena Perry — an ally for former President Donald Trump who was recently elected to serve as the next chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus — the request marks the first time the committee has asked a sitting lawmaker to testify about the matter.

    As we examine our experience with the COVID vaccines, treatments, and mandates now (December 2021), there are several things that are disturbing, but becoming clear: (a) We have been misled, if not lied to, about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines. (b) Treatments for COVID, such as ventilators and Remdesivir, have actually killed thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people. (c) The afflicted have often not been treated early enough to save lives. (d) Government agencies such as the CDC and NIH have financial interests in the vaccine, so they have shunned more effective and much cheaper treatments...

    Since the vaccines were first offered to the broader population earlier this year, state and municipal governments across the US have tried to incentivize more adults to get the jabs by offering money, free beer, and entry into a lottery for millions of dollars to try and draw more people to get the vaccine. For some, this has bred resentment, as the vaccinated have questioned why they're being penalized for complying with the government's demands.As France resorts to using more heavy handed measures, like requiring vaccination passports for people to dine at restaurants The FT is the latest to take...

    The days of the old black phone connected to the wall, or sitting on table connected by a cord are almost over. Even if you still have a dial up phone, it's probably working off a main station with a cordless phone. I would guess that 99% of Americans today have cell phones. Those of us old enough to remember those days may be able to relate to this story.When I was a young boy, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung...

    1AO – Media content is not an accidental byproduct of competition for popular attention, it’s engineered media, intended in peacetime to shape popular opinion, control purchasing behavior, regulate sexual morality. Currently MSM news and entertainment media are directed to immediate tactical necessities of nonlinear, ‘unrestricted’ or Information War (IW) . “Information Poisoning” is a form of psychological attack or “psyop” that damages our cognitive capacity over time. The primary purpose of MSM media news and entertainment content is not to amuse and inform but to influence social decision making and shape purchasing behavior.

Sunshine Week, an annual focus on press freedoms and the fight for government transparency, comes a year after the state marked its first positive case, and soon after that, the first death from the virus.

    Microsoft has teamed up with a number of tech and media companies to create a system of tracing content around the internet that could destroy online privacy and anonymity, radically transforming the nature of the web. Against stiff competition, the alliance of tech and media giants has devised a plan that may constitute Big Tech’s most brazen power-grab yet. According to Microsoft’s press release, it has partnered with several other organizations to form the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA). Put simply, the purpose of this organization is to devise a system whereby all content on the internet can...
