Trump And The Buzzfeed Dossier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2017 in News & Opinion |

If there wasn’t so much news at the moment, especially surrounding the President-elect of the United States, then we would just be reading about the weather and precious little else. Either that, or trying to struggle through stories about dogs, cats, and miraculous twins. And there we have a problem: there is so much news, […]

Anis Amri Is Dead: Now The Work Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The news that Anis Amri, the terrorist suspected of driving a lorry into the Christmas market in Berlin, is dead came from Italy and spread very quickly through the media. For many this is good news; a terrorist has been eliminated and cannot strike again. For others it is merely the beginning, and the trail […]

Hoax, Cry Wolf, Fake News Damage

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 22, 2016 in News & Opinion |

In Aesop’s fairy tale, a young shepherd boy found it amusing to alert local villagers with the claim that his flock of sheep was being attacked by a wolf. The villagers, out of concern for their own livelihoods as much as anything else, would immediately come out to his defense, to drive the wolf away, […]

Terrorism: The Passage Of Information

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2016 in News & Opinion |

We are going to be overwhelmed with a wealth of information in the next few days, and all of it information after the fact which was available before the fact. This has been the case in so many terrorist attacks worldwide, so many crimes, that it is almost parr for the course that we learn […]

News Media And Terrorism: Verify First!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Yesterday evening a large lorry drove into a crowd of Christmas market visitors in Bremen. Latest reports say that twelve people died and about fifty were injured. I followed the news live on Twitter, and especially the news coming from those people so far away from the course of events that they could have no […]

Loan Interest: How Much Are You Paying?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2016 in News & Opinion |

This is the way it works: you’re short of cash and need a quick loan. You know someone, or there is a payday loan company near you, and you get some ready cash to help you through the day, a few days, the week. Simple as that. Except that the interest many people pay on […]

Playing The Stock Market

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 14, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Two days ago a small thought came to me, after I had seen reports about the troubles Boeing and other companies have had, or could potentially have, when Trump lets his thumbs do the talking through Twitter. In between the realization that these Tweets will probably be his press releases now, whether he wants to […]

Religious Freedom Is Only For Christians

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 1, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There are, in theory, two great bastions of religious freedom, going by what their governments, constitutions or laws claim: the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Both of these countries have experienced religious persecution in the past – indeed, the North American continent was initially colonized by people wishing to get away from […]

USA: Not My President

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 28, 2016 in News & Opinion |

You can go back all the way through history and study every single country which has an elected officer at its head, and you’ll find exactly what we have in the United States today: a group of people claiming that this person is not their person, because they did not vote for him. We’ve had […]

Bad News Sells Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Fake news is in the news, but not all fake news makes it to the forefront, not when it comes to highly thought-of and well established concerns who have been in the business of reporting for many years, rather than just having had a Twitter account since last June. This form of fake news, however, […]
