Welcome to the new frontier of campaign tech — a loosely regulated world in which simply downloading a weather app or game, connecting to Wi-Fi at a coffee shop or powering up a home router can allow a data broker to monitor your movements with ease, then compile the location information and sell it to a political candidate who can use it to surround you with messages.

On January 30, 2019, Channel 2 TV (Iran) aired a report about the delivery of 30 tons of yellowcake from the Shahid Rezaeinzhad industrial complex in Ardakan, Iran to the Isfahan UCF nuclear plant, where the uranium will be enriched. Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that the Ardakan plant uses the latest technology and that it is Iran’s first plant that can produce yellowcake at a large scale. He explained that uranium is mined in Yazd Province at the Saghand mines and that there are additional mines which have not been announced yet. He said that the plant in Ardakan can receive 84,000 tons of uranium ore and turn it into yellowcake, and that similar plants will be built elsewhere in the Yazd Province. He also said that Iran is ready to produce 300 tons of yellowcake per year for the next five or six years.
The federal government is unveiling a “sweeping series” of new measures aimed at further shoring up Canada’s electoral system from foreign interference, and enhancing Canada’s readiness to defend the democratic process from cyber threats and disinformation.

What makes this breathless reporting so egregious is that neither of these news agencies were able to verify the reporting. NOT ONE! And nor did anyone else like the NY Times or the Washington Post for that matter. Yet both CNN and MSNBC (and others) still ran with this ‘bombshell’ story like it was true.

What was Canada’s biggest business news story of 2018? According to the pundits at The Canadian Press, it wasn’t the giveaway of Canadian oil to Americans for tens of billions of dollars below world prices, caused by a lack of pipelines from Alberta. It wasn’t the loss of tens of billions more in oil and gas investment to the U.S., because Canada is too hostile to building new projects. It wasn’t the Americanization of Encana, once the largest of all Canadian-headquartered companies. It wasn’t the federal Liberal government’s forced purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan because the expansion faced insurmountable opposition from the B.C. government and indigenous groups. Nor was it the court decision blocking the federal government from completing that project. Instead, The Canadian Press’s choice of business news story of the year was … the legalization of cannabis.

Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) revealed Saturday that she swore in as a member of the House of Representatives on her personal Quran, rather than the historic copy owned by Thomas Jefferson, as news reports previously indicated.
The response is quite spirited.
The hagiographic December 30th account spans a remarkable three and a half full pages of the paper, tracing Rouzan al-Najjar’s personal life and sad end. Yet it manages, in all the words and images (and online videos), not to report the nature of the violence in which she was entangled nor the murderous and implacable hatred of Israel fueling it.
