Daily Mail owner buys New Scientist magazine in £70m deal | Daily Mail & General Trust | The Guardian

The publisher of the Daily Mail has acquired the renowned weekly science and technology magazine New Scientist in a £70m cash deal – the latest round of consolidation in the publishing sector.
It is understood that Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT), which made an unsolicited approach to buy New Scientist and sealed the deal in just three weeks, has guaranteed the magazine’s editorial independence, ruling out staff cuts as well as the sharing of editorial content.
"Guaranteed editorial independence"? I don't believe a word of it. One more publication I won't be buying again.

Arrest of photographer at Kent protest raises press freedom fears | UK news | The Guardian

Concern is growing over press freedom following the arrest of a photographer after he took and shared photos of a protest at a former military barracks controversially housing asylum seekers.
Andy Aitchison, 46, documented a demonstration outside Napier barracks in Folkestone, Kent, on Thursday morning as protesters threw buckets of fake blood at the doors of the site amid allegations of overcrowding, poor hygiene, significant risks posed by Covid-19, and limited access to healthcare and legal advice.
Arresting a press photographer for documenting a protest is just wrong.

Un photographe de guerre syrien "blessé par la police" lors d'une manifestation à Paris


Selon le groupe de presse, le photojournaliste primé Ameer Alhalbi a fui la Syrie pour échapper à la violence

Agence France-Presse, 29/11/2020.

Un groupe de défense de la liberté de la presse a dénoncé la blessure "inacceptable" d'un photojournaliste syrien primé lors d'une manifestation à Paris contre les brutalités policières.

Ameer Alhalbi, un photographe indépendant qui travaillait pour le magazine Polka et l'AFP, couvrait les manifestations contre les violences policières et la nouvelle loi du gouvernement limitant le partage des images des officiers pendant le week-end où il a été blessé.

Les photos montrent que le visage d'Alhalbi semble meurtri et qu'une grande partie de sa tête est couverte de bandages.

Christophe Deloire, secrétaire général de Reporters sans frontières, a tweeté que le jeune homme de 24 ans avait été blessé place de la Bastille par "un bâton de police" et a condamné les violences.

"Ameer est venu de Syrie en France pour se réfugier, comme plusieurs autres journalistes syriens. Le pays des droits de l'homme ne doit pas les menacer, mais les protéger", a-t-il déclaré dans un deuxième tweet.

M. Deloire a également noté qu'Alhalbi avait été clairement identifié comme un journaliste.

Dimitri Beck, directeur de la photographie de la Polka, a déclaré qu'Alhalbi avait eu le nez cassé et le front blessé, et qu'il avait été conduit à l'hôpital.

Alhalbi a remporté plusieurs prix internationaux, dont le deuxième prix dans la catégorie "spot news" pour le World Press Photo en 2017, principalement pour sa couverture du conflit syrien dans sa ville natale d'Alep pour l'AFP.

Des milliers de personnes à travers la France se sont rassemblées pour soutenir la liberté de la presse après que le film de la police battant un producteur de musique noire a attisé la colère contre un projet de loi qui est considéré comme limitant le droit des journalistes à faire des reportages sur les brutalités policières.

A Paris, les manifestants ont mis le feu au mobilier urbain et se sont heurtés à la police alors qu'ils tentaient de bloquer l'accès à certaines rues. À Lille, Rennes, Strasbourg et dans d'autres villes, des milliers d'autres personnes ont protesté contre le projet de loi.

Jean Castex, le Premier ministre, a annoncé qu'une commission indépendante examinera et réécrira l'article controversé du projet de loi.

Brexit stems from a civil war in capitalism – we are all just collateral damage


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

To one sort of capitalist, the insecurity and chaos that Brexit will bring is horrifying. To the other, it is highly profitable. (...)

Boris Johnson ignored the pleas of businesses and politicians across the UK – especially in Northern Ireland – to extend the Brexit transition process. Never mind the pandemic, never mind unemployment, poverty and insecurity – nothing must prevent our experiment in unassisted flight. We will leap from the white cliffs on 1 January, come what may. (...)

So it is worth repeating the big question: why are we doing this to ourselves? I believe the answer is that Brexit is the outcome of a civil war within capitalism.

Broadly speaking, there are two dominant forms of capitalist enterprise. The first could be described as housetrained capitalism. It seeks an accommodation with the administrative state, and benefits from stability, predictability and the regulations that exclude dirtier and rougher competitors. It can coexist with a tame and feeble form of democracy.

The second could be described as warlord capitalism. This sees all restraints on accumulation – including taxes, regulations and the public ownership of essential services – as illegitimate. Nothing should be allowed to stand in the way of profit-making. (...)

Brexit represents an astonishing opportunity for warlord capitalism. It is a chance not just to rip up specific rules, which it overtly aims to do, but also to tear down the uneasy truce between capitalism and democracy under which public protections in general are created and enforced. (...)

The chaos it is likely to cause will be used as its own justification: times are tough, so we must slash regulations and liberate business to make us rich again. (...)

Housetrained capitalists are horrified by Brexit. Not only does it dampen economic activity in general, but it threatens to destroy the market advantage for businesses that play by the rules. (...)

Johnson’s government is what warlord money buys. It could be seen as the perfect expression of the Pollution Paradox, a concept that I think is essential to understanding our politics. What this means is that the dirtier or more damaging an enterprise is, the more money it must spend on politics to ensure it’s not regulated out of existence. As a result, political funding comes to be dominated by the most harmful companies and oligarchs, which then wield the greatest political influence. They crowd out their more accommodating rivals. (...)

Understood in this light, Brexit is scarcely about the UK at all. Oligarchs who have shown great interest in the subject tend to have weak or incomplete ties to this country. (...)

The persistent trick of modern politics – that appears to fool us repeatedly – is to disguise economic and political interests as cultural movements. Throughout this saga, the media has reported the smokescreen, not the manoeuvres. (...)

Brexit, treading on the heels of the pandemic, is likely to harm the lives and freedoms of millions of people in the UK. But it’s not about us. We are just caught in the crossfire of capitalism’s civil war.

the Fuckoff Murdoch petition has been presented to Parliament
"The pair of former leaders claim Australia is on the American path to deep division unless Rupert Murdoch’s hyper-partisan media operations are kept in check. On the ABC’s Insiders program on Sunday, Mr Rudd called out “Murdoch bullies” and called Mr Murdoch “a cancer on our democracy”.

we've had enough :) thankyou, boatshoe protestors and covidiots - you have inadvertently achieved something worthwhile. Now go away.

V-J Day in Times Square


Alfred Eisenstaedt (December 6, 1898 – August 23, 1995) was a German-born American photographer and photojournalist. He began his career in Germany prior to World War II but achieved prominence as a staff photographer for Life magazine after moving to the U.S. Life featured more than 90 of his pictures on its covers, and more than 2,500 of his photo stories were published.

Among his most famous cover photographs was V-J Day in Times Square, taken during the V-J Day celebration in New York City, showing American sailor George Mendonsa kissing dental assistant Greta Zimmer Friedman in a "dancelike dip" which "summed up the euphoria many Americans felt as the war came to a close", in the words of his obituary. He was "renowned for his ability to capture memorable images of important people in the news" and for his candid photographs taken with a small 35mm Leica camera, typically with natural lighting.
