I’m Shocked — Shocked! — that the Ferguson No-Fly Zone was a Censorship Ploy
For nearly two weeks in August, the US Federal Aviation Administration imposed a “no-fly zone” over the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, where protests raged over the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The stated reason for the “no-fly zone” was that shots had been fired at a police helicopter. Now, thanks to an Associated Press investigation, we…
The Day That Changed Everything
A day on which everyone can remember where they were is seldom a good memory. On September 11, 2001 we added another day to that list of days we’d rather forget. I was in an optimistic frame of mind when my radio alarm woke me that morning. My first real print publication, the pamphlet “Iron…
“With ‘Socialists’ Like Lawrence and Wishart, Who Needs Capitalists?” on C4SS Media
C4SS Media presents Kevin Carson‘s “With ‘Socialists’ Like Lawrence and Wishart, Who Needs Capitalists?” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. For the forces of information freedom, and other movements associated with the successor economy, to attempt to fight the established interests of the existing system for control of the state, is like an army…
“Missing Comma: ‘Pass It! Consequences Be Damned!'” on C4SS Media
C4SS Media presents Trevor Hultner‘s “Missing Comma: ‘Pass It! Consequences Be Damned!’” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. Through their definition of who gets to be a journalist, they’re not. They are making sure that the outlets that crave the most access – the major networks, public radio, major newspapers – are the only…
With “Socialists” Like Lawrence and Wishart, Who Needs Capitalists?
In the latest example of a phenomenon as old as the state itself, Stan McCoy – formerly the US Trade Representative’s chief “intellectual property” negotiator, who wrote ACTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s IP chapter – was just given a cushy job at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). He’s one of over a dozen…
Missing Comma: “Pass It! Consequences Be Damned!”
The Daily Beast’s Geoffrey Stone has drawn the line in the sand when it comes to the Free Flow of Information Act. He has made it clear which side he’s on. He believes that the only way journalism can continue to be free in the United States of got-dang America is if journalists have the…
“Free Flow of Information Act” is Bad for Journalism on C4SS Media
C4SS Media presents Trevor Hultner‘s “‘Free Flow of Information Act’ is Bad for Journalism” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. In fact, the Free Flow of Information Act spends more time detailing what it will not cover than describing who it will protect. Luckily, it isn’t hard to see who ends up in the clear…
“Free Flow of Information Act” is Bad for Journalism
US Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) believes the Senate has enough votes to pass the Free Flow of Information Act, creating a federal “shield law” for the first time. The bill was ostensibly written to address the Justice Department’s unprecedented acquisition of Associated Press phone records, as well as several other high-profile cases where journalists might…
Zimmerman and Manning: The Demands of Justice
Long after the February 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, defendant George Zimmerman, has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers. The case has remained a hot topic for media since it was first reported. The unarmed teenager was shot and killed in a street fight with Zimmerman, a 29-year-old member of his neighborhood…
Talking About Whistleblowers on the Jake Shannon Show
Today I had the great pleasure of appearing on my friend Jake Shannon’s radio show. Mostly we discussed WikiLeaks whistleblower Pfc. Manning, and the work I’m doing with Freedom Torch in Salt Lake to stand in solidarity with Manning and other whistleblowers. C4SS was one of the first sponsors of the Freedom Torch Parade. While whistleblowers were the…
Et Tu, Iceland?
Knapp: Regime uncertainty is the state’s version of herpes: Its eruptions are unpredictable, it makes people think twice about intimate contact with the carrier, and yes, it sometimes literally kills babies.
The New Political Asymmetry: Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide
Knapp: The global political class, like it or not (and they don’t, not one bit), is faced with the inverse transparency David Brin predicted in 1998’s The Transparent Society.
The New Fourth Estate: Anonymous, Wikileaks and –archy
Sebastian A.B.: The techno-libertarian culture has birthed the do-it-yourself Fourth Estate—usurping the illegitimate media and furnishing a viable alternative to the cartelized press. Two entities, Wikileaks and Anonymous, have emerged under this banner.
Lindsey Graham as Julian Assange
What is wrong with Wikileaks, again?
So, What Exactly is a Freedom Outlaw?
Claire Wolfe: It’s not what you do; it’s how you do it. It’s an attitude — from which actions always follow. It’s a do-it-yourself occupation. And a lifetime vocation.
Bradley Manning: Soldado Que Realmente “Defendeu Nossa Liberdade”
Se há soldado em algum lugar do mundo que já lutou e sofreu por minha liberdade, é o soldado de primeira classe Bradley Manning.
