Megyn Kelly accuses Trump social media director of inciting online abuse

Megyn KelleyJournalist Megyn Kelly, who is under armed guard after receiving death threats, has accused Donald Trump’s social media director of stirring hatred on the internet.

The Fox News host urged Dan Scavino, a member of the presidential transition team’s leadership staff, to stop encouraging hostile and abusive elements online.

“The vast majority of Donald Trump supporters are not at all this way,” Kelly told an audience in Washington. “It’s that far corner of the internet that really enjoys nastiness and threats and unfortunately there is a man who works for Donald Trump whose job it is to stir these people up and that man needs to stop doing that. His name is Dan Scavino.”

Canadian reporter barred from entering the US.

Ed OuEd Ou is used to crossing borders.

The award-winning Canadian photojournalist has spent the past decade travelling to the kinds of places where being in the media can be a hazard to your health: Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Egypt and Turkey, to name a few.

So when he booked a flight last October to the US from Canada to cover the Standing Rock pipeline protests in North Dakota for the Canadian Broadcasting Company, he was relieved to be somewhere with press freedoms.

Kellogg Is Latest Company To Pull Advertising From Breitbart

Kellogg leaves BreitbartKellogg is pulling advertisements from Breitbart, a website that traffics in racist, sexist and anti-Semitic content.

A Kellogg spokesman told The Huffington Post that consumers alerted the food company to its ads on Breitbart.

“We regularly work with our media buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as company,” Kellogg spokesman Kris Charles said. “This involves reviewing websites where ads could potentially be placed using filtering technology to assess site content. As you can imagine, there is a very large volume of websites, so occasionally something is inadvertently missed.”

WikiLeaks releases thousands of 1979 diplomatic cables

Julian AssangeWikiLeaks on Monday released more than 500,000 diplomatic cables from President Jimmy Carter’s administration.

The cables, all of which were sent by State Department officials in 1979, could offer additional insight to researchers and journalists about the United States’ activity in a momentous year that saw the Iranian revolution and the political rise of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

“If any year could be said to be the ‘year zero’ of our modern era, 1979 is it," WikiLeaks head Julian Assange said in a statement.

Deported from Palestine: Why Israel fears journalists

Journalists deprted from PalestineLast September, the United Nations Human Rights Council called for international action to curb what it described as "an Israeli campaign to evict international workers".

As Israel tightens its grip on Palestinians and their international supporters, a growing number of activists, researchers and journalists have been denied access by the Israeli authorities.

Among them is Eoin Wilson, an Irish-Scottish freelance journalist specialising in social movements and international solidarity activism. Earlier this month, he was refused entry and banned for 10 years. Here, he reflects on his ordeal at the hands of Israeli interrogators.

Donald Trump Met Privately With Network Executives And Anchors

Wolf Blitzer and other media folk meet with TrumpPresident-elect Donald Trump met privately with top network executives and anchors at Trump Tower on Monday for an off-the-record gathering that comes amid serious concerns about the level of access journalists will receive from the incoming White House.

Network anchors have traditionally held off-the-record meetings with the president ahead of the State of the Union address, and President Barack Obama held several private discussions with leading columnists and commentators. But it’s less common to have both network bosses and top on-air talent to meet with a president, or in this case, the president-elect.

A moment of truth amid the fake news for Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg. “For election day influence, Twitter ruled social media,” fumed the New York Times. “Donald Trump won Twitter, and that was a giveaway that he might win the presidency,” claimed Business Insider. And “Donald Trump won because of Facebook,” wrote Max Read in New York magazine.

Twitter was castigated mainly because it was Trump’s favoured channel and his tweeting provided a masterclass in how to exploit it. Facebook was in the dock, though, for a different reason: it was claimed that fake news stories that had spread virally on the service had inflicted real damage on the Clinton campaign. Among these were stories that the pope had endorsed Trump, that Hillary Clinton had bought illegal arms worth $137m and that the Clintons had purchased a $200m house in the Maldives. (There was probably worse stuff, but I didn’t have the stomach to do the necessary trawl.)
