I’ve Studied the Trump-Fox Feedback Loop for Months. It’s Crazier Than You Think.

 

On Tuesday night, I, along with many Americans, was shocked when President Donald Trump tweeted that his “Nuclear Button” is “much bigger & more powerful” than North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's.

Having spent the past three months monitoring Trump’s Twitter feed professionally, I also had a good sense of why this spectacle was unfolding. After watching a recording of the previous few minutes of Fox News, my hunch was confirmed: The president was live-tweeting the network’s coverage.

Sexual harassment is not cool. :p It's pretty obvious what they were doing.

Since it involves a pretty big comic image, I'll just post a link: https://satwcomic.co...he-lovable-dork

This is funny in a schadenfreude way. You know the supposed Trump ally, wikileaks? Well, they went and shared the full text of that Fire and Fury book[/url] that has been causing so much drama in the past week.

I wonder if they'll also get into trouble with the publisher because wikileaks is effectively enabling pirating of the book.

 

@mods: I know what Obsidian's and the forums policy is on talking about piracy (as in Pirate Bay), but is it okay if I post a TheHill article which has the wikileaks tweet on it that links to the full free PDF? http://thehill.com/b...lffs-trump-book

 

Obviously what wikileaks did would be a big no-no from the point of view of the publisher, but I feel like this might be a bit of a grey area since I'm not directly linking the PDF.

 

Basically, I'm asking how do you want to treat this because wikileaks isn't typically a pirate torrent thing like pirate bay (the US government would disagree) and I'm not sure the exact position on the rule is for this case.

It's a legitimate publication (...more or less), so I would think it'd be alright.

Wikileaks? That depends on who you ask and I know TheHill is a legit publication, just not sure how it would be handled as far as forum rules. If I had directly linked the wikileaks copy of it, yeah that could be considered against the rules.

 

It's probably not a big deal, but trying to cover my ass here just in case.
