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, […]

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, […]

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.

Not Exactly Tasteful

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 13, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I had many strange thoughts about Europe before I came here, and even addressed a few of them here in an early post.

After a certain amount of pressure from outside, it looks as if Facebook might consider reacting to the number of fake news stories propagated on its servers, some of which are claimed to have influenced the recent presidential election in the United States.

Turkey: A Future In The European Union?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 2, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It seems almost like an eternity since Turkey first made tentative moves to join the European Union. Since then the moves have expanded into a full investigation on the possibilities and, to the dissatisfaction of the Turkish government, a series of demands which must be met before membership can seriously be considered.

Sex, Donald Trump And Language

The headline, no matter which languages you may understand, is clear: Is Donald Trump a Sex Monster? With the recent revelations surrounding the candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America and his sexual leanings, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the international press has also hit upon the many […]

Presidential Campaign: Lest We Forget

There are parody accounts, real accounts and stared accounts on Twitter, and sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference one from another. Quite a few people have been caught out recently by parody accounts claiming to be Donald Trump – although I do not understand why anyone would wish to parody a man who […]

News Media Working At Full Steam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 9, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s been a tough few days for the media, far harder than any other election cycle we have ever experienced. Never has the media been forced to fact check so many statements, to delve so deep into the archives – their own and those of others – to sift through leaked and falsified documents, to […]
