Disarming the attack media

The Deuce may have correctly anticipated the purpose of the Wired article that is purportedly about Google:
My guess is that they're going to ask Google, purely out of journalistic interest of course, if they consider hosting an "alt-right" blog to be within their policies regarding hate speech.
Yes, there is a very good chance that this is the author's attempt to utilize a weaponized media platform in order to induce Google to break its contract with me. That is exactly what Amanda Robb tried to do, unsuccessfully, with Amazon, and what she did somewhat more successfully with Indiegogo, much to the latter's regret.

(In case you didn't know, Indiegogo's CEO, General Counsel, and Head of Trust & Safety have all already become casualties of Indiegogo's ongoing encounter with the Dread Ilk. And it's not over yet; there is at least one more skull we anticipate collecting by the time this comes to an end. In the metaphorical sense, the metaphorical sense, you understand.)
Al Letson: Why is Amazon distributing this book?

Amanda Robb: Well I asked Amazon, and someone from their PR department got back to me. He said it falls within their guidelines. He helpfully sent me a link to their guidelines so I click on them and it says their definition of offensive material is, and I'm quoting, "What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect."

Al Letson: That doesn't make sense because I find this offensive and they don't find it offensive.

Amanda Robb: Well it's a very moveable goalpost, it turns out. Amazon changes what it thinks is offensive all the time.

Al Letson: I don't know. That rule seems pretty flimsy.

Amanda Robb: Not only is Amazon distributing the digital version, it's number one in its category on Amazon.
This tactic of weaponizing the media to leverage a platform in order to deny its services to a target has been used against many innocent individuals. Fortunately, our research has found that there are a number of legal remedies in various jurisdictions that are useful for holding parties who induce a breach of contract liable for their actions. Interestingly enough, being a self-employed, self-styled journalist is no defense against personal liability in these matters. I spoke with one of the leaders of the Legal Legion of Evil concerning this and we're now actively looking into the optimal system, place, and method of systematically holding these attack SJWs accountable for their defamation and deplatforming campaigns.

So, if you're a lawyer, you oppose the SJW weaponization of the media, and you're potentially interested in joining the Disarm the Attack Media Now campaign, shoot me an email identifying the specific jurisdictions in which you are licensed to practice. We're particularly interested in CA, WA, and the UK.

And apropos of absolutely nothing at all, if you are one of the many people that Amanda Robb contacted, please be sure to save and screenshot her approaches to you on Facebook, Linked In, email, or whatever.

"That doesn't make sense because I find this offensive and they don't find it offensive."

It appears one Al Letson has stumbled upon differences of opinion. Bravo, sir or madame. Perhaps next you'll tackle the alphabet.

Need it be pointed out Amazon sells pornography, Mein Kampf, the Turner Diaries, the Anarchist Cookbook, the Communist Manifesto, the Satanic Bible, and so on?

Yeah but they didn't sell "What Happened" by HRC. Well, not more than a few copies, anyway.

There's a lot of people discovering that recently.

Using the courts they love so much against them might, might, be as much fun as helicopter rides.

A "journalistic" hit piece also provides cover for and a plausible basis for a Google "investigation", particularly if the Gogle employee behind the whole thing wants plausible deniability for xir/xit's responsibility for setting up a purge. "There were media reports which prompted us to investigate", etc. Ad nauseum.

Blogger Stilicho July 23, 2019 7:08 AM  

So,lets assume for argument's sake, that the hypothetical article contains actionable defamation. The discovery process of such an action should include Google and Google's problem is that sunlight just might cause it to spontaneously combust.

@11 You might want to just listen to Rick's actual interview WITH the Supreme Dark Lord. Start at 39 minutes, cause Vox got the time mixed up. Rick discusses some other case for the first part. Excellent excellent interview!

It's like they saw the whole Mueller probe fiasco and learned all the wrong lessons. Here comes another Steele dossier on the SDL, because the first one worked out so well.

If discovery applies in such cases, that would make for some fun reading.

Ah, hadn't considered that. So one should not assume that a byline on a website comes with the same sort of protection it did in the days of the printed press with full-time writers and editors. Very interesting. Fortunately it's the world they've wrought.

@ 27 Vox
Understandable considering your work load. Much as we all would like to see that, you have much more important work to do. Even you can't do everything.
Not surprised at all you already knew some of the legal eagles mentioned up page.
Indegogo: After the dust clears and you have the time and inclination, I would pay some decent money for book, whatever the length, of the whole thing.

Blogger The Deuce July 23, 2019 10:42 AM  

It occurs to me that this points to a potential "bottom up" strategy for leashing big tech instead of relying on Congress or Trump to do so, which they probably won't. Lobby right-leaning jurisdictions across the country (which are much easier to get to act than the federal government) to pass tougher tortuous interference and libel laws that explicitly list being deplatformed from social media as cause and explicitly identify attack journalists and the tech companies they lobby as legitimate targets and provide for discovery against them.

Has Vox sent out that letter to shaqueero to retract his statement, or is this tied into looking for legal measures in California?

He helpfully sent me a link to their guidelines so I click on them and it says their definition of offensive material is, and I'm quoting, "What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect."

I haven't read the definition, but I have no doubt Miss Amanda is omitting a lot of context from that quote. That sounds like a preamble (TL;DR for you yunguns), explaining the intent of the definition, which follows. Basically, if you're normal, our definition of offensive very likely aligns with yours. Here's how we define that pedantically...

@6- That is literally what the Deep State did to get a warrant to snoop on Trump. One hand plants stories in the media, the other points to the stories and says, "Look! Evidrnce!"

Richard Meyer's (youtuber Comics Matter w/ya boi Zack) lawsuit against Mark Waid centers around Tortious Interference. It's been held up in the courts for a little under a year now and the legal fees Meyer's accrued have come from crowdfunding. It is claimed Waid is receiving his legal services for free.

This case is also an important advancement in the culture war. A self-appointed Sheriff phoned up a publisher of Meyer's and threatened that the book has to be pulled. It was, prior to printing

Through sheer luck and absolutely no effort of their own, Robb and her husband have a living situation of which most urbanites can only dream. It makes her efforts at deplatforming and disemploying those with whom she disagrees, many of whom are no doubt struggling to get by, to be even more disgusting.

I ended up reading the hilarious interview with Robb and Letson (who sounds like a little boy). As usual though, I was convinced by the sinister music in the white supremacist parts.
