Understanding the laws relating to 'fake news' in Russia - Committee to Protect Journalists

From our colleagues at the Committee to Protect Journalists:

"Since the outset of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, CPJ Emergencies has been responding to the needs of journalists in Russia as they sought to navigate—or in some cases escape—an increasingly hostile environment.

For journalists and newsrooms operating in Russia, the introduction of amendments to the country’s criminal and administrative codes in March 2022 marked the beginning of a new and dangerous era. Under these laws, media outlets have been fined and threatened with lengthy prison terms for disseminating “fakes” or any information that Russian authorities deemed false. Many Russian journalists, as well as foreign correspondents working in the country, fled for their own safety. Several of the country’s independent outlets relocated outside Russia.

This new guide (https://cpj.org/2022/07/understanding-the-laws-relating-to-fake-news-in-russia/), developed by TrustLaw and the Committee to Protect Journalists, provides user-friendly, practical guidance for journalists and newsrooms seeking to understand the Russian “fake news” laws and how they’ve been applied thus far to both local and international press.

Pelosi in Taiwan: Tweaking the Dragon's Tail? #FPABriefings

China’s petulant response to the Pelosi visit raises big issues, from trade to the threat of World War III. As Speaker Pelosi is fulfilling Congress’s Taiwan Relations act – can the US allow the PRC unilateral interpretation of the deal that led to mutual recognition. How can President Biden reconcile maintaining principles with trying to wedge between Beijing and Moscow? https://youtu.be/cHcaHMwU23M

Vincent Wang explains to the FPA the intersection of economic and military interests in the Taiwan Straits. Does diplomatic ambiguity have limits? What are the consequences of the visit in the PRC, the US – and the world?

https://youtu.be/AoixsI2NR38

Last November, 30+ journalists founded The Kyiv Independent, the English-language media outlet in Ukraine, when they were fired from the Kyiv Post for defending editorial independence.

The Kyiv Independent provides round the clock news coverage about all aspects of the war in Ukraine - and is not President Zelensky’s favorite publication but is even more unlikely to be Putin’s nomination for a Pulitzer.

Daryna Shevchenko, the CEO of the Kyiv Independent discusses with Ian Williams, FPA President of the Foreign Press Association to discuss how Ukrainian media covers the Russian invasion of Ukraine and keeps up the pressure on the authorities in Kyiv. Daryna has been a media manager, trainer, and media consultant before joining the Independent.

The United Nations Human Rights Report on Ukraine #FPAOpEd #TheFPAPressButton

https://youtu.be/ks2_pBHLJsQ
FPA President Ian Williams and Vice President Simon Locke discuss the recent AP post which appeared widely July 9 titled: “Ukraine bears share of blame for nursing home-attack” about the Russian Invasion of Ukraine and later ascribing a “major share” of the blame to making Ukraine. It was picked up by VOA and the Washington Post.

From FPA President Ian Williams:
The deeply flawed dispatch unequivocally blames the bulk of casualties and rights violations on Moscow and its surrogates while, quite correctly cautioning the Ukrainian forces about reported incidents. But I find it, intriguing, puzzling and shocking that the AP report distills this into a contradiction of its main conclusions by pointing the finger at Ukraine for the nursing home incident.

Even the AP report on the incident that they emphasize is anomalous. The Russians and their proxies invaded and were firing on the Care Home. The Ukrainian forces could not evacuate the residents but fought back against, never let us forget, the attackers. It was the attack that made this a military site. Whose attack? The Russians.

The tenor of the report was perhaps taken from the photo-caption with the story “A United Nations report says Ukraine’s armed forces bear a large share of the blame for a deadly assault on a care home for the elderly and disabled.”

The report shows the confusion of the immediate conflict but unequivocally says “That morning, soldiers from Russian affiliated armed groups attacked the care house with heavy weapons, with patients and staff still inside.”

So, the Ukrainians failed to evacuate the residents because the roads were mined, but it is a stretch to say they share the blame, and an outright lie to say that Ukrainians “bear a large, and perhaps equal, share of the blame for what happened in Stara Krasnyanka” and it is absolute misreporting to attribute that sentiment to the UN! The US “shares the blame” for 9-11 by putting the twin towers there as a target!

Was it just sloppy writing and editing? Was is a succession of editors falling over backwards to be fair and even handed? If I were a Ukrainian conspiracy theorist, I would suspect that this is Biden’s spin doctors paving the way for an abandonment of Ukraine since both sides are equally immoral. Whatever the excuse, it is culpably bad journalism.

To remind you, the UN report’s major admonition to Russia is
“Immediately cease the armed attack that commenced on 24 February 2022 in the territory of Ukraine and fully comply with the binding 16 March 2022 order on provisional measures of the International Court of Justice”

FPA features Allan Lichtman on Repealing the Second Amendment. Faced with mortal consequences of loaded and imaginative judicial interpretations of the “right to bear arms,” Professor Lichtman suggests it is inherently flawed and past its shoot-by date: https://youtu.be/knj9RG3HPi8

Faced with the massacres in the classrooms, the overturning of New York’s gun control laws, Lichtman suggests alternative strategies to combat the National Rifle Association’s legislative and judiciary hostage taking. His book “Repeal the Second Amendment” was a road map to safer streets and schools – sadly ignored by the mesmerized Supreme Court Majority.

Allan Lichtman, Distinguished Professor of History at American University is also author of The Case for Impeachment, and an accomplished predictor of Presidential Contests.

Breaking #FPAOpEd on the Boris Johnson Resignation: https://youtu.be/cNZXwAwacQw

Will Boris get his Bounce Back? Who decides the next British Prime Minister?

Boris Johnson had an unrivaled tenacity, hanging on well after his sack-by date. Even now he clings to poop deck of his sinking government, whence all but he have fled. FPA’s Ian Williams and Simon Locke, both British exiles, discuss what happened, what might happen now, and what it means for Britain and the rest of the world.

FPA President, Ian Williams former speech writer for UK Labour leader Neil Kinnock and thus by proxy for Joe Biden (google it) points out that Conservative Leader Johnson supported Abortion rights, gun control and had an unashamed attitude to the sexuality of his cabinet. His replacement will be picked by the Party, not the people, and as a new face against an ineffectual Labour leader could win on a hardline conservative platform.

07/05/2022

The U.S. State Department's investigation of the killing of Shireen Abu-Akleh concluded that there is 'no reason to believe' that the shooting was deliberate. This flies in face of clear evidence of continued shooting at attempted rescuers and other clearly identified press at the site. The White House should not be part of the whitewash of Abu-Akleh’s murder. It must hold the perpetrators to account or it will be complicit in the deaths of more journalists in the region and worldwide. The FPA reiterates its call for a genuine independent investigation. #JournalistsLivesMatter

2PAC means Two People Are Creating an acronym. New Tell All Book from The Creator of 2PAC ThugLife Theory GOAT Formula The Don Killuminati. Hidden in plain sight, the untold chronicles of 2PAC ThugLife Theory creation to assassination.
I have read with utmost interest the book, "Across the Pond," by Terry Eagleton. Here my translations of a couple of passages that describe the state of freedom of opinion here in the United States of America: "En Estados Unidos, los periodistas son demasiado deferentes al poder para burlarse de él; no es fácil imaginarse a un periodista estadounidense repitiendo dieciséis veces la misma pregunta vegonzante a un político quisquilloso (squirming), como una vez lo hizo un periodista de la BBC” (P. 41). Es la diferencia entre entre las preguntas directas pero sin malicia ni agresividad que el periodista Jordi Évole le hizo al presidente de Venezuela Maduro y las preguntas llenas de odio que le harían otros periodistas: es el estilo europeo. Ya que Évole fue directo como se estila en Europa pero no quiso denigrar a Maduro. Eagleton dice que incluso los debates políticos estadounidenses se diseñan de tal forma que terminan con sonrisas y un cierto acuerdo entre rivales que no están de acuerdo en casi nada; lo cual Eagleton sospecha que debe ser parte de contratos previos." In sum, the United States of America is not as free as people abroad believe; freedom of the press, yes, but limited by the culture that Eagleton describes so well.
The death of Journalist Borodin of Russia should turn our attention to the rise of Mercenary Forces in Russia, US, Turkey and other states who wish to avoid any international responsibility for their illegal actions. Erik Prince, a Trump confidant, is about to contract for more Blackwater-type operations in undeclared war operations. These activities must be kept in the spotlight, and journalists must be allowed to report with their security assured.
Call Me By Your Name got snubbed.
Wow! What a wild morning today (December 19, 2017). Just got fired for reporting sexual harassment in the work place on Friday December 15th, 2017, the reporting of the taunting by company employees whom use vogar and sexual language wanting to settle the score for the reporting of locker room talk and behavior (sexual harassment/hostile work environment). Well it seems that German Based Company Würth Electronics, ICS located at 7496 Wester St. Dayton, Ohio 1.877.690.2207 (a subsidiary branch of the German Company Würth Elektronic Group eiSos which is Europe's biggest manufacturer of electronic & electromechanical components.) has failed miserably on the issues and reporting of sexual harassment in the work place. Management at Würth (Dayton) say that they pride themselves on the safety of all its employees and contingent employees. Well it's true, that if you are a whistle blower at Würth, and don't fit into the hostile culture at Würth they will fire you on the spot while protecting the employee(s) whom are engaging in forms of sexual harassment, whereas, creating an hostile work environment. In addition to, prior to my firing I spoke with Würth Management as to the handling of the situation surrounding the reporting of the complaint and how it was addressed, whereas, throwing us (the contingent employees) under the bus. Inotherwords, nothing you say at Würth's (i,e, Wurth Electronik Group) Dayton, Ohio Branch on the issue (s) of sexual harassment will not prompt any forms of immediate actions while falling on death ears when employees and/or contingent employees report sexual harassment in the work place. At Würth Dayton the very employee (s) complained of, will not be disciplined, nor fired for repeated conduct. The culture at Würth Dayton is trying to preserve their culture of its Ok to "sexual harass" your co-workers as long as you don't expose anyone whom engage in any forms of sexual harassment. My question here is how other major companies such as Diamler Trucks North America, LLC (which is a Diamler Company (German) whom has electronic components contracts with Würth Elektronik and its USA based subsidiary) deal with the issue(s) of sexual harassment in the work place as opposed to just outright firing the "whistle blower" in order to conceal the reporting of any and all allegation and claims of sexual harassment. Secondly, how would Equipment Manufacturer, Bob Cat Headquarted in West Fargo, North Dakota (An American Company (whom is currently engaging in plans to invest approximately $180k of its own funds to set up one food like assembly line at the Würth Dayton facility beginning in January of 2018, and the completion of three additional lines in 2019 If Würth can prove that it can handle approximately 70k units in year 2018.) deal with the issues of sexual harassment as mentioned above. I must say that you cannot turn a blind eye on any form of sexual harassment. You simply can't condone that type of behavior or conduct whether as an individual or company in the work place as a whole. The moral of this story is, that I was a voice for my daughter (whom also was fired for absolutely no reason at all), and other women at Würth Dayton who may be vulnerable and in fear of losing their jobs, due to ongoing forms of sexual harassment within the sexually charged atmosphere and environment at Würth Dayton. The subject of sexual harassment arose when I was called into the manager of manufacturing office, and was asked how I, (at the time a contingent employee) felt about becoming a permanent employee at Würth Dayton. I was further asked "what were my thought's about the company at Würth Dayton, with general and open conversation." I expressed my thoughts and opinion openly and honestly. "I was then ask what was my daughter's thought's, about the company as well." I, clearly expressed that she's Ok, but is feeling very uncomfortable with all of the sexually charged conversations aloud in the production area. Subsequently, and immediately after my in office talk with the mfg manager he goes to the HR. The HR summons my daughter without my knowledge to his office on the matters of the sexually explicit conversations that was communicated in the production area openly amongst Würth Dayton employees. She was unaware of my communications with the mfg manager, whereas, she did not want to cooperate, nor create any problems for herself and no one else. As usual in the fear of losing a job assignment, she reluctantly divulged what the HR who himself already new, and was well aware of the sexually heated and infused talks between Würth employees. As an aftermath Würth Employees started distancing themselves from us like the plague, urging others to watch what you say here they come, and shushing everyone to be quiet because me and my daughter are heading in their direction. Immediately, after her talk with the HR, that we believe we're in confident. Apparently not. Can anyone say blind sided. If I would have foreseen the aftermath of speaking up for women's rights, and not because it's my daughter, I would have kept my mouth shut, had I known that the mfg manager was going to through us under the bus by divulging and leaking the harressment issue to his team as whole. Again, I would have kept my mouth shut. However, it is of my belief and opinion, that women in the work place should not endure, nor be subjective to any forms of sexual harassment. I myself thought that Würth Dayton as it appears should be a professional environment, to work in, not a High School of grown Adults acting in a very unprofessional manner. More importantly there is an elderly lady, that is old enough to be my grandmother/great grandmother that too works in the production area. Clearly, no respect for her either. Finally, after this mornings concern, as to why was a Würth Employee ranting with a loud tone ("If ya'll don't like the way I talk then we can address and handle this right now") directly behind my work station clearly proves that when making allegations of sexual harassment Würth Dayton provides no confidentiality to its employees or contingent employees when issues of sexual harassment arises. Ethically and legally Würth Dayton has dropped the ball on labor relations. Sorry, to say my daughter and I was escorted from the building latter to find out that the Vandalia Police were called where Würth Dayton made a police report and statement that I, was going to shoot up the place. We're like where in the hell did that come from. Maybe, just maybe they had concern, that since we don't eat pork toppings on pizza and pork as a whole. Würth employees immediately assumed we were Muslim. Go figure. It was a Bad Day for us, but a good day tomorrow which brings about prosperity.
