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, […]

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 […]

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, […]

The Problem With Banning Fake News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 15, 2016 in News & Opinion |

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. Google has also indicated that such an action might follow from their […]

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

The first clear indications of how the new government are going to be acting have been revealed. The Wall will probably be a real thing, separating Mexico from the USA. Deportation will probably be a real thing, although it may be limited to criminals initially. Protection of those in power will probably be a real […]

USA: The Media Post-Mortem

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s going to be a very long time before we have this election – both the campaign and the results – out of the news headlines. The coming two months until the inauguration are going to be full of what could have been, what might be, what will be. There are going to be accusations […]
