The phrase “the rhinestone-rimmed hamster wheel of his mind” deserves a place on the mantlepiece. Thank you, @PennyRed.

@thegrugq_ebooks @onthemedia That would seem to be the correct answer. But why?

via TweetDeck in reply to thegrugq_ebooks

I can’t wait to hear how @onthemedia covers the Trump / DNC / Wikileaks / Putin thing next week.

@munin This is a major scandal. For the PM to call a Royal Commission the next morning after the TV program is apparently unprecedented.

@TheDanAnimal Argument would be they’re not giving content to Facebook but getting content to an audience. (It’s both, of course. Danger.)

@TheDanAnimal Have you seen the numbers for how many people now get most of their news via Facebook? (Not saying I agree.)

@ivovic When I read that @DefenseOne yarn, I was thinking a lot of the supposed evidence was a tad circumstantial and/or forgeable.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@riskybusiness I can imagine, especially given the demographic you move in (he says diplomatically). Fun for all the family.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@ivovic Agreed. And it works much of the time. I agree it’s… “unfair” seems to tame a word. But this was never a fair game.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Sure, but people love a good narrative. Anyway, as I say, my own views are far from fixed. I’m still reading.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ivovic True, for criminal law at least. But we’re in the realm of politics, spooks and media now. It’s bullshit all the way down.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

This is yet another possibility. As I keep saying, my views are far from fixed. But then I’m part of the conspiracy. twitter.com/munin/status/7…

via TweetDeck

@ivovic I’d suggest that there’s nothing new there. That’s exactly what barristers do in a criminal court, surely?

The word “refute” does’t mean shouting at people either. It’s about pointing out the holes with evidence and logic , not assertions.
