Phi Beta Iota: The active complicity of the Government of Israel, leading US Jews (many with dual citizenship), and others is now established to the point where an independent investigation is absolutely warranted. However, it was Dick Cheney who embraced this crime against humanity as his own — we hold enemies of the USA blameless in those instances where internal traitors such as Cheney, Tenet, Silverstein, and others chose to betray their country rather than protect it. We continue to believe in Truth & Reconciliation rather than vindictive justice.
When people play detective on Reddit and other social media sites with the goal of sharing information quickly as opposed to ensuring accuracy, false accusations can be made – such as the case with Sunil Tripathi. Researchers from Masdar Institute of Technology and the Qatar Computing Research Institute plan to launch Verily as a platform that could combat situations like that one.
The article states:
“Verily aims to enlist people in collecting and analyzing evidence to confirm or debunk reports. As an incentive, it will award reputation points—or dings—to its contributors. Verily will join services like Storyful that use various manual and technical means to fact-check viral information, and apps such as Swift River that, among other things, let people set up filters on social media to provide more weight to trusted users in the torrent of posts following major events.”
This will be an interesting sector to watch as there is a growing awareness of social media’s distortional lever.
