Memet Uludag: Review: Paul Mason, Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions, Verso, London 2012
Irish Marxist Review (Irland) nr. 2, jun 12 – side 113
Note: In September 2011, Pakinam Amer of the Egypt Today Magazine reported that ‘Before the revolution, Twitter had around 100,000 subscribers from Egypt. Shortly after, the figure jumped to 1.1 million, according to rough estimates released by internet experts in Egypt. Compared to 80 million [total population]...’
John Newsinger: “Most humble day”: the Murdoch empire on the defensive
International Socialism Journal nr. 134, apr 12 – side 61
Note: Rupert Murdoch’s enforced appearance before the House of Commons Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport on 19 July 2011 was an unprecedented humiliation. It signified the eclipse, at least temporarily, of his political influence in Britain.
Ian Taylor: In my opinion: The Sun isn’t shining
Socialist Review nr. 367, mar 12 – side 7
Note: The wheels continue to come off at News International. James Murdoch’s resignation as executive chairman is the latest blow. It came a few days after Metropolitan police deputy-assistant commissioner Sue Akers’ explosive account to the Leveson Inquiry of a “culture of illegal payments” to a “network of corrupt officials” by the Sun.
Julia Armstrong: Super-injunctions for the super-rich
Socialist Worker nr. 2252, maj 11 – side 6
Note: In the topsy-turvy world of celebrity obsession, it took a tweet by the famous daughter of an obscenely rich family to decisively lift the lid on super-injunctions.
Dennis Strøm Petersen: Det er mennesker, der laver revolutioner – ikke sociale medier
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 309, maj 11 – side 6
Note: Internettet er ofte blevet tildelt en ganske særlig og stor betydning for udviklingen af demokrati og frihed på verdensplan. I de seneste år har flere borgerlige medier ofte omtalt især de sociale medier, fx YouTube, Facebook og Twitter, som helt centrale i f.eks. den iranske opstand i 2009 og de arabiske revolutioner i år.
Jonny Jones: Social media and social movements
International Socialism Journal nr. 130, apr 11 – side 75
Note: The past few months have seen an explosion of debate, blogging, theorising and hype around the role of the Internet in today’s social movements. Social media—Internet applications such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube which facilitate the creation and exchange of user-created content—have been identified as key to events as diverse as the rise of student protests in Britain at the end of 2010 and the outbreak of revolution in the Arab world.
Patrick Ward: Interview John Pilger: The fight for principled journalism
Socialist Review nr. 354, jan 11 – side 18
Note: Despite claims of impartiality, journalists are often subservient to the needs of the rich and powerful. John Pilger spoke to Patrick Ward about the media, power and his new film The War You Don't See.
Tom Walker: Does British politics revolve around the Sun?
Socialist Worker nr. 2179, nov 09 – side 12
Note: New Labour’s worries over the content of the Sun newspaper reflect its patronising and flawed attitude to ordinary people, writes Tom Walker.
Dave Crouch: Media: When no news is bad news
Socialist Review nr. 337, jun 09 – side 22
Note: The rise of blogging, "citizen journalism" and free online content has been held as partly responsible for the demise of the newspaper industry. Dave Crouch argues the media corporations' greed is to blame for the thousands of journalists losing their jobs.
Dave Crouch: In my opinion: Whose side are you on, BBC?
Socialist Review nr. 333, feb 09 – side 7
Note: The refusal of the BBC's top management to broadcast the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Gaza aid appeal focused public anger over media coverage of the Israeli assault.
Editorial: Media impartiality is neither possible nor desirable
Socialist Worker nr. 2136, jan 09 – side 12
Note: BBC executives came up with a thoroughly disingenuous excuse to justify their shameful refusal to broadcast the Disasters Emergency Committee’s appeal for Gaza
Alan Gibson: Books: Flat Earth News
Socialist Worker nr. 2135, jan 09 – side 11
Note: It should come as no surprise that the media is in crisis. Lies, distortion and omission are all par for the course.
Nick Davies’ magnificent Flat Earth News, which is now available in paperback, goes a long way toward explaining why.
Richard Seymour: Israel and the media – twisted by propaganda
Socialist Worker nr. 2133, jan 09 – side 9
Note: On 28 December, Israel bombed a truck in Gaza, killing several bystanders. The Israeli army celebrated this strike by publishing video footage of it on its YouTube page.
It claimed the truck was being used by Hamas activists who were seen loading rockets onto it.
Ingrid Lamprecht: Book Review: Challenging the newsmakers
International Socialism Journal nr. 121, jan 09 – side 183
Note: Robert McChesney, The Political Economy of Media: Enduring Issues, Emerging Dilemmas (Monthly Review, 2008), £25
The US media reform movement seemingly burst out of nowhere in response to the Federal Communication Commission’s attempt to relax media ownership rules in 2003. The movement had gathered force since the 1999 Seattle protests against the World Trade Organisation, but it was the attempt to deregulate the media that gave it momentum. Up to two million people were involved in the campaign to overturn the plan. Where did this anti_corporate public sentiment come from?
Sadie Robinson: How powerful is the mass media?
Socialist Worker nr. 2106, jun 08 – side 13
Note: Our rulers can’t fool all of the people all of the time, argues Sadie Robinson
Jakob L. Krogh: Mediernes ligegyldige kritik
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 279, jun 08 – side 4
Note: Fra strejkerne startede har medierne fokuseret på, hvornår regeringen ville lave et indgreb. Alle medierne tog for givet, at et indgreb ville betyde et nederlag for de strejkende.
Jakob L. Krogh: Det nødvendige alternativ til de borgerlige medier
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 279, jun 08 – side 10
Note: Vi træffer vores beslutninger om politiske handlinger på grundlag af viden om politiske ideer og forhold. En viden vi har fra medierne og egne erfaringer. Det er overvejende elitens synspunkter der kommer til udtryk i medierne.
Jakob L. Krogh: Elitens medier
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 279, jun 08 – side 10
Note: De største medier bringer næsten ingen kritik af den danske elite og ingen diskussion af alternativer til at eliten styrer samfundet. Dette skyldes at avisernes ejere selv tilhører eliten, annoncørernes modstand mod kritisk journalistisk, og elitens bevidste manipulation.
Alan Gibson: Book review: Can We Trust the BBC?
Socialist Review nr. 324, apr 08 – side 25
Note: Robin Aitken, Continuum, £9.99
If you have just spent several minutes shouting at the television – perhaps this time over the racist filth being broadcast care of the BBC's White Season – it's difficult to comprehend how anyone could possibly claim it is biased against the right. Yet this is the basis of Robin Aitken's book, Can We Trust the BBC?
Jakob L. Krogh: Boganmeldelse: Der er et yndigt land – om kvindekamp og antiracisme
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 277, mar 08 – side 13
Note: Rikke Andreassens bog er en gave til socialister, feminister og antiracister. Hun har analyseret mediernes dækning af synlige minoriteter, dvs. ikke-hvide indvandrere fra 1971 til 2007.
Javier Couso Permuy: Against embedding journalists
Socialist Worker nr. 2090, mar 08 – side 12
Note: Cameraman José Couso was killed reporting the brutality of the Iraq war. His family is fighting for justice.
Nick Davies: Obstacles to truth
Socialist Review nr. 322, feb 08 – side 16
Note: In his new book, Flat Earth News, award-winning journalist Nick Davies argues that the main threat to truth-telling journalism has moved from propagandist proprietors such as Lord Beaverbrook to the corporations and their commercial interests exemplified by business magnate Rupert Murdoch.
Colin Sparks: Reality TV: The Big Brother phenomenon
International Socialism Journal nr. 114, apr 07 – side 171
Note: A row over racist abuse on the January 2007 edition of Celebrity Big Brother focused public attention in the UK on ‘reality TV’. This round of public outrage is merely the latest in a long series of disputes that have dogged Big Brother since the first version was broadcast in the Netherlands in 1999.
Indenfor systemet: Længe leve demokratiet og den fri presse
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 220, okt 03 – side 4
Note: Frederik og Mary
Colin Sparks: Inside the media
International Socialism Journal nr. 98, mar 03 – side 31
Note: THE MEDIA can leave activists in fits of rage as the TV and newspapers seem to spew out so much one-sided capitalist propaganda. But is it really so simple? Colin Sparks takes a look inside the media, analysing the conflicting pressures on owners, editors and media workers. He assesses the role of the mass media as a capitalist enterprise, but one that must connect with the everyday experience of workers.
Anders Schou: Medieforliget: ‘Kultur-Brian’ slår til igen
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 204, jul 02 – side 8
Note: TV2 skal privatiseres, 20% af DRs produktion skal udliciteres og lokale græsrods TV-stationer skal ikke længere have ret til at sende på TV Danmark 2 efter klokken 15.
Alexander Lassithiotakis: Kommentar: Er pressen vores allierede?
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 200, jan 02 – side 6
Note: Mediedækningen af større antikapitalistiske demonstrationer er altid fokuseret på et mindretals vold og ballade. Hvorfor vil pressen ikke fortælle noget om vores politiske krav – vores gode argumenter for, hvorfor en bedre verden er nødvendigt?
Anders Schou: Borgerlig kulturpolitik: TV uden bold, men med børnereklamer
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 200, jan 02 – side 8
Note: Den ny kulturminister Brian Mikkelsen har efter valget sagt, at han vil gennemføre en privatisering af TV2, indføre flere børnereklamer og afskaffe de landsdækkende kanalers ret til at bringe fodboldlandskampe.
Jens Loller: TV i pengenes vold
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 114, apr 95 – side 13
Note: Socialdemokratiet har, gennem kulturminister Jytte Hilden, lanceret et medieudspil under navnet: “Demokrati i en tv-tid – 20 spørgsmål til den danske befolkning”.
Kampen om seerne
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 43, okt 88 – side 8
Note: 1. oktober fik Danmark sin anden landsdækkende TV-kanal. Den har kostet mange penge og mange års politisk kamp at få op og stå. Alle partier i folketinget gik ind for en kanal nummer to, men der var delte meninger om både form og indhold.
Karin Marcussen: Hvem sagde ytringsfrihed?
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 18, mar 86 – side 3
Note: Lokalradioerne er andet end hilsner til tante Hilda på fødselsdagen og dårlig popmusik. Lokalradioerne kan også lave farlig radio. To radioer i Århus blev under påskestrejkerne sidste år lidt for farlige for magthaverne. Det måtte 5 medarbejdere og aktivister ved de to radioer sande, da Århus Byret afsagde dom over dem.
Med nærradio på blokader
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 8, apr 85 – side 6
Note: Mens Danmarks Radio spillede non-stop musik og radioaviserne blev begrænsede til meget korte meldinger, så boltrede flere alternative radiostationer sig i æteren i konfliktens første dage.
Judith Orr: Bradley Manning – a soldier’s leaks exposed US ‘bloodlust’
Socialist Worker nr. 2356, jun 13 – side 15
Note: As Bradley Manning faces court martial for leaking military files to Wikileaks, Judith Orr says he is standing firm despite the threat of a lifetime in jail
Jakob L. Krogh: WikiLeaks dokumenter
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 305, jan 11 – side 11
Note: Vi kigger på nogle af de seneste WikiLeaks-dokumenter.
Jørn Andersen: Forsvar WikiLeaks
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 305, jan 11 – side 12
Note: WikiLeaks’ seneste, igangværende offentliggørelse af en kvart million indberetninger fra amerikanske ambassader verden over har udløst et voldsomt modangreb fra USA og dets allierede. Alle tilhængere af demokrati og åbenhed må gå til forsvar for WikiLeaks og dets talsperson, Julian Assange.
Pat Stack: In my view: Quantum leak
Socialist Review nr. 354, jan 11 – side 7
Note: It's all beginning to feel as if it were a Stieg Larsson novel. You have computer hacking, a journalist exposing the dirty doings of the rich and powerful, outcry and outrage from the said rich and powerful, and before you know it there are attempts to discredit the journalist, legal proceedings and it all ends up in the Swedish courts. All that's missing is a girl with a dragon tattoo.
In brief: Defend Julian Assange against the US government
Socialist Worker nr. 2232, dec 10 – side 2
Note: The Stop the War Coalition protested outside Westminster Magistrates Court against attacks on Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange, on Tuesday.
Lisa M. Ødegaard: Wikileaks afslører Foghs løgne i sagen om ROJ TV
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 304, dec 10 – side 5
Note: – Der er rent ud sagt tale om en beskidt studehandel, hvor Fogh langt overskred sine beføjelser som statsminister. Han har selvsagt ingen kompetencer i forhold til danske domstole, og det er derfor også med god grund, at tyrkerne føler sig snydt. Tilbage står indtrykket af en mand, som tilsyneladende ville bruge alle midler for at nå sit mål, og som man ikke kan stole på.
Jakob L. Krogh: WikiLeaks: Fogh og Løkke accepterede tortur
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 303, nov 10 – side 12
Note: WikiLeaks afsløringer af næsten 400.000 militære dokumenter viser Irak krigens blodige alvor. Herunder den omfattende anvendelse af tortur og anden mishandling fra besættelsesmagtens og dens irakiske allieredes side, omfattende blodige aktioner fra private "sikkerheds-firmaer"s side, og15.000 hidtil udokumenterede civile dræbte.
Jørn Andersen: WikiLeaks: Irak-krigen: Tortur, dræbte civile, private lejesoldater
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 302, okt 10 
Note: WikiLeaks offentliggørelse af 391.832 amerikanske militære dokumenter fra Irak-krigen bekræfter, hvad krigsmodstandere har sagt siden før krigen startede.
Lene Junker: WikiLeaks afslører magthavernes spin
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 300, aug 10 – side 12
Note: Med WikiLeaks’ offentliggørelse af 90.000 hemmeligstemplede dokumenter fra Pentagon kan hverken de mest uvidende eller løgnagtige politikere og medier fortsætte deres spin om Afghanistan-krigen. Respekt for den amerikanske soldat, som har lækket dokumenterne!
