DEMUSKED: How to Protect Social Media from Billionaire Tech Bros. Plus - Dave Troy on Musk's Real Agenda
Join our news meeting today at 5pm BST and ask 'what is going on?' and 'what is to be done?' with Heidi Cuda, Nafeez Ahmed, Matt Bernardini, Adam Bienkov, Hardeep Matharu and Peter Jukes.
Just as Byline Times has led the way in exposing the unlawful activity, Government subsidies and political influence of Britain's right-wing press, Byline Supplement has been dedicated to exposing the other billionaires who want to control our media: the Big Tech oligarchs like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and Peter Thiel or indeed Robert Mercer of Cambridge Analytica fame.
Join us at 5 pm today to discuss how to combat this. First, some background reading…
If you want a comprehensive view of Elon Musk’s real agenda by taking over Twitter, here’s Dave Troy’s take from November last year on Byline Times.
Musk is aligned with Putin in other important ways. Both have been heavily promoting traditionalism, hierarchy, and patriarchy.
Here are our follow-ups on Byline Supplement with Heidi Cuda, Nafeez Ahmed, and Matt Bernadini. If you want to hear from them and the newspaper’s editor Hardeep Matharu, our supplement political editor Adam Bienkov, in a discussion hosted by Peter Jukes, join us later today…
To understand why the purchase of Twitter by a Kremlin-friendly billionaire matters, one need only to look how other autocrats and oligarchs around the world have abused their powers.
Long-termism is not only influenced by far-right eugenics but, in turn, is influencing the billionaires involved in the biggest technology companies in the world including Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft – and the Biden administration.
Crypto’s supporters like to tout its decentralisation and lack of regulation as reasons why it is so incredible. However, this is exactly what makes it so dangerous.
David Fincher’s 2010 film The Social Network now looks like a very soft indictment of Facebook, not because of any artistic shortcomings but because it was made before phrases like “data harvesting” and “Cambridge Analytica” entered the lexicon of most people.
Join Nafeez Ahmed, Heidi Cuda, Adam Bienkov, Matt Bernardin, and Hardeep Matharu in a discussion hosted by Peter Jukes to see what ordinary citizens can do about the monopolies these Tech Bros exert in the online public square.
