Magorn: Not just a consultant but the campaign manager for a GOP congressional candidate, which makes his motives very suspect in all this,


Tweeting a highly recognizable screen cap from a recent blockbuster movie really doesn't sound like it was supposed to be intention subterfuge, to be honest.

Lipo: You're all missing the really important thing in this entire story. From the photos on the page, you really, really must ask yourself, why is this guy in orange raping that old lady, and should she be allowed to get an abortion if she gets pregnant?

[www.washingtonpost.com image 296x210]



If it's legitimate rape, she won't get pregnant. The female body has a way of shutting that down. If she gets pregnant, she wanted it.

Okay, I'm not really seeing a problem with what he did, nor why he would need to resign.

He was just some guy on twitter. If a news agency gets it's info from a twitter site without fact-checking, then they deserve to look like morons. People post crazy shiat on the internet all the damn time. Say, for example, like this:

Breaking News:
President Obama's testicles explode all over the oval office!

Now if CNN picks this up and runs it, this is my fault? I am not in a position as a reliable news source. I could see if it was Anderson Cooper doing it to be funny, but it wasn't. Hell, just look at the Fark headlines for crazy made up stories about actual events.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Bring back the Public Stocks. The wooden ones, not the kind this douche sells.
Lock him up right next to the bull statue and drop off all the rotted food ruined when the power went out.



And where do we draw the line on the 1st amendment? Honest question, not trolling in any way.

As long as the overwhelming opinion among liberals here is that people should be fired from their jobs and prosecuted, or even beat up, for posting non-illegal content in their own personal time away from the job - so be it. But, just remember, be consistent in your slippery downhill opinion in the future. You may not like the consequences.

The thing about disinformation is that with only a scintilla of research, you can usually get the accurate information with just as much speed. On any major forum (fark, reddit, etc.) just as soon as one posts the fallacy, another will provide a link to a credible source in rebuttal. Major news sources have no legitimate excuse for falling prey to the vast dissemination of disinformation. It is their responsibility to vet any and all source of information. Nice try Post.

//Media fail does not equal prosecutable stupid.

/His being a political figure wasn't determined until after someone said "Hey I recognize this scene" so that shouldn't actually be held against him either.

///I do not approve nor condone his trolling but I am fairly sure if this was a Democrat this site would not be talking about the beatdown this guy deserves.

Lets face it, anyone that uses Twitter as a sole source is being lazy and negligent. If anyone deserves punishment it is those in the traditional media that ran the story.

This.

However....as a hedge fund manager, I would question his motives in this particular rumor. Everybody knew that the NYSE was going to be closed for at least one day, possibly two.

InitialCommentGuy: Generation_D: Reading the buzzfeed link above.

So he deliberately retweets out plausible bad news involving public figures.

I would be happy to see him prosecuted and jailed. Real people needing to take real time during an emergency to deal with asshattery, thats on a par with shining a laser in the eyes of a rescue pilot.

The fact he's a hedge funder manager and republican operative just is icing on the cake.

You're right. Posting plausible but untrue 'facts' is a jailable offense.

Continue to allow your brilliance to shine a light upon such injustices. I would look into trying These People as the war criminals they are.


IF you get trolling up to the level of news site, I'm fine with it.

If all you do is sit around posting random rumor as fact in a public forum, we need stuff sorted out. Is twitter a movie theater and is yelling fire in it protected speech?

Precedent should be set.

I went with what I believe. You believe differently.

As long as first responders are using twitter, or are forced to respond to it, I'd say it needs some kind of protection status.

Its like calling up radio station hoaxes during an emergency. People can and have been prosecuted for it, particularly if what they said led to someone losing life or property.

Stocktrader boy here, lets say while a FDNY is investigating Wall Street flooding, ignored something else, which led to someone dying or being not rescued. You get it yet?

The Onion's stuff only trolls China and Iran news agencies. And your mom's facebook feed.

Except that in a flooded city with already stretched emergency resources, who are needing to take out time from their work to respond to rumor..

Lets put it this way, it reveals a whole lot about who you are if your idea of fun is trolling the fire dept and hospitals with fake stories in the middle of a storm/fire/widespread power outage.

for the lulz, sure... but thats defendable as a 14 year old kid.

Not as a 29 year old stock trader / political adviser.

Its got its damn funny side he was fired on the spot for it.

And as for "jailed," do you think if he caused anyone to have FDNY be late someplace else while they checked out his bogus rumor .. that he owes anybody for it?

CNN I give a crap, who's watching that anyway.

As well, this was an emergency situation w/ limited and restricted access to information where real-time information was crucial. The "news" group was definitely reporting w/ their information-seekers turned up to eleven trying to get info out there.

Not denying that CNN has some definite issues here, but if there ever was a possibility of something like this slipping through the cracks then during a real-life emergency/crisis where lives are in danger it seems likely that information might get shared then vetted as they go in some cases.

None of that makes this guy any less of a tool and regardless of political affiliation he's definitely got a big question mark on him as a hedge fund guy.

At the heart of the matter is "protected political satire or protected speech" and First Amendment rights. Strong precedent, play on, continue.

If you can justify what this little f*cker did as first amendment protected political speech, you have a case.

If not, then he yelled fire in a crowded movie theater, which is also a precedent for NOT First Amendment protected speech.

And he gets his beatdown.

As I see it, this is the issue, was what he did First-Amendment protected political satire or political speech?

Very good point.

Would a reasonable person believe any tweet, perhaps not

Then he wins, twitter is just one big trollathon.

But then why are First Responders using it?

Sooner or later this needs to get sorted, either First Responders need to quit using Twitter at all, or we have to have some precedent set.

I am still on board with "yelling fire in a crowded movie theater." The theater in this case is VERY crowded, but it is not "protected political satire" in my book.

Perhaps @ComfortablySmug can be the test case.

Thats what needs to be sorted. Is using Twitter, in an emergency, with first responders likely to react to what you tweet ... in need of some kind of status, or some kind of acknowledgement... Would what you put up there reasonably be considered to be true.

Or, is it just one big CF and ignore everything.

If its ignore everything then we need to get our first responders the hell off there, because they should be responding to real 911 calls not asswit trolls who hate the government but are good at faking emergency reporting.

Quite so. W/o real direct precedent it makes an interesting case for some lawyer with their "trademark look" to make a fortune off of marketing. I keeed...I keeed.

But really, it does underline a question worthy of consideration IMHO within the courts that helps people understand this "new" medium a bit better. The results from the "outing" of the moderator at Redit is in a similar vein of "free speech" and "legal" vs. appropriate and potentially actionable.

Something does tell me though that this gentleman's beat down will not come at the hands of the public, but at those connected w/ the NYSE and any future he hoped to have interacting with them.

I am 100% OK with trolling the media. It's their farking job to check facts, but instead they all want to get the first "scoop" and rush blindly into reporting not just distortions, but outright lies. So fark them, their credibility, and their integrity. They sold out to the dollar years ago, and this is the result.

Bear in mind that if they can get something so easily checked completely wrong, what's their score on the stuff that's more subtle?
