What’s wrong with FaceApp, the latest creepy photo app for your face
The Washington Post

Published: 7:00pm, 28 Apr, 2017 scmp.com

“..And what of privacy? Whenever you’re thinking about installing a viral app like FaceApp, privacy should be a concern. These apps are fun, but by installing them you’re usually agreeing to give a third party some degree of information about you in exchange for that fun. And there’s something about apps like FaceApp that take, analyse and mess with photos of your face that cooks up a healthy paranoia…

FaceApp hasn’t seemed to raise as many red flags so far among the privacy-wary as did Meitu, another photo-altering app. But the privacy policy for FaceApp has still been creeping people out. According to that policy, FaceApp tracks and collects quite a lot of information about you from your phone when you use the app, both for the purposes of “improving the service” and to show you lots of ads.
The question of how unusual that is for an app like this, though, is one for another day…”

Is the ‘FaceApp Challenge’ Safe?

FaceApp brings privacy concerns but is it any riskier than other apps?

Experts say just be smart about downloading apps, as usual.

“..FaceApp does disclose in its privacy policy that they collect user content, the web pages you visit, cookies, and information that tells them what kind of device you might be using the app on. They also collect metadata in the name of “improving the Service.”

Depending on which country you’re in, the term “privacy” can flex. This is where we can note that FaceApp is created by Wireless Lab, a company based in St. Petersberg, Russia.

“We value privacy here in the U.S.,” Francen said. “Many view privacy as a right not a privilege and the fact that Russia and the U.S. are in a cyber war right now, all these other things going on– that’s the collateral damage of all this.”

Meaning– the developers behind FaceApp may not be malicious at all. They could be developers who just came up with a cool app with cool features. It’s just that in Russia, the privacy game they play might be according to a different set of rules we have here in the U.S…”

“What we see out there in social media is only a snippet of what is really going on in someone else’s life. So social media leads us to compare what we have with what others have,” Bemel said. “The fact is whatever we have, most people want more…”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper caught faking interview in front of blue screen background Sunday, February 17, 2013 by: J. D. Heyes naturalnews.com
“.The next scenes feature backstage shots of the Saudi Arabia “set” – an entire news crew, complete with fake props.

Turns out Jaco, Rochelle and their crew aren’t in Saudi Arabia at all. They are on a sound set near the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, a faked broadcast that the cable news channel eventually had to quietly admit.

The video contains clips of Jaco and crew clowning around. Jaco holds up a mock SCUD missile with a rag attached to its tail that acts as a rocket “plume.” The CNN reporter goes on to joke about how “they always call an ‘all clear'” when he orders his “burger and fries.” He clowns around about other things as well.

Fast-forward to today. CNN is up to its old tricks, this time with Anderson Cooper acting as the “live, on-the-scene” reporter who is, quite obviously, somewhere else other than where he says he is.

Debunked: Sandy Hook: Anderson Cooper Green Screen Disappearing Nose with Pozner
by Mick West, Feb 7, 2013 metabunk.org
“..The more video is compressed, the more blocks of the image are transmitted marked “unchanged”. In this video Cooper leans forward, and his nose enters a block that’s marked as “unchanged”. It takes a few frames before the video compression detects this, and marks it as “changed”, and then start to transmit the block. In the image above, it would be like the running man running into the house. Until the compression software detected this it would look like he went behind the house for a fraction of a second. ..”

It would also kick up dust, and none seems apparent, she said.

Experts poring over the slickly-produced videos believe they were made in an area south of Raqqa in northern Syria, the self-declared capital of the Islamic State group. The killings of the five other hostages took place between August and November. The U.S.-led coalition began targeting IS militants in Syria in mid-September, and has gradually intensified its aerial bombardment of suspected IS infrastructure in both Syria and Iraq.

The ‘Fake’ Beheading Videos May Not be What You Think, from theantimedia.org
“..(TheAntiMedia) This is a controversial subject for anyone who’s willing to discuss the topic. The two most prevalent theories are both horrifying. Either an insurgent group in the Middle East is capturing and beheading civilians, or an allied intelligence agency staged the beheadings in order to gain support for a war.

Frequent readers that are aware of my personal belief that the US is attempting to manufacture consent for a full-scale Syrian war will probably be surprised by my conclusion. Understand that it is not even debatable whether the US is waging a full-scale propaganda war to obtain the support necessary to oust Assad. I believe this with the same intensity that I believe the sky is blue. It isn’t theory; it’s fact. However, that does not mean that every piece of propaganda used was independently created by western intelligence.

Leaked Video Shows Making of Islamic State “Execution” in Studio — via CyberBerkut Hack of Sen. McCain Staffer

“..British forensic experts concluded that the James Foley video was likely staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques.”

Terrorism research expert Veryan Khan said the video of Japanese hostages Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa looks like it was completed in an indoor studio with a false backdrop, pointing to the light source on the men that appears to be coming from two different directions — as opposed to one bright sun.

Hollywood horror film director Mary Lambert said of the Islamic State video showing the killing of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians on a Libyan beach, that “in the opening shot all the figures might be animated. They never had more than six men on the beach … The close-ups of jihadists on the beach are most likely green screen … The sea turning red is obviously FX.”

“…But last night her boast came back to haunt her – as video footage of the occasion showed her waving, smiling, apparently untroubled by gunfire and accompanied by her daughter Chelsea.

“I remember landing under sniper fire,” Mrs Clinton, 60, had said in recalling the March, 1996 Bosnia visit.

Hillary Clinton says ‘epidemic’ of fake news puts ‘lives at risk’

Hillary Clinton has spoken out against the “epidemic” of fake news in one of her first public addresses since losing the US Presidential election.

Mrs Clinton said: “The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year, it’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days.

Democratic heads roll after video shows agitators planted at Trump rallies By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Tuesday, October 18, 2016 washingtontimes.com
“..Two top Democratic strategists have exited the presidential campaign after explosive undercover videos showed them discussing voter fraud and their roles in planting paid agitators at campaign events for Republican candidate Donald Trump.

Robert Creamer, founder of Democracy Advocates and the husband of Rep. Janice D. Schakowsky, Illinois Democrat, stepped down from the campaign Tuesday, a day after Scott Foval was fired from his post as national field director of Americans United for Change.

Mr. Trump, who has long complained of a “rigged” election system, said at a Tuesday rally in Colorado that the video released by the conservative group Project Veritas Action confirmed his suspicions of Democrat-sponsored political chicanery.

“The protesters are paid a lot of money by the [Democratic National Committee], and they kept saying, ‘I wonder why those people are here, because they never seem to have much on their mind other than stand up and protest,’” Mr. Trump told a crowd in Colorado Springs. “And yesterday it came out, but it was barely covered by the media. But it’s all over the internet. They were busted.”

Brad Woodhouse, Americans United for Change president, said in a late-Monday statement that Mr. Foval “is no longer associated with Americans United for Change.”

He insisted that the Democratic political consulting firm has “always operated according to the highest ethical and legal standards.”..”

CNN International Under Fire For Refusing To Air Bahrain Documentary, Accepting Funds From Government by Trisha Marczak mintpressnews.com
“…Journalists Scott Bronstein, Amber Lyon and Taryn Fixel were tasked with creating a mini-documentary on the civil unrest in Bahrain. What they discovered was far beyond what they had imagined, with on-the-ground footage revealing peaceful human rights activists being shot at and government officials denying that such had ever occurred. Yet their work was never aired to an international audience.

The documentary, “iRevolution,” told the story of the widespread violence sponsored by the government, a piece that painted a not-so-favorable picture of Bahraini officials. It was, as Lyon says, the truth.”

…Exposing the funding

In a Twitter post Wednesday, Lyon claims CNN was “caught taking money from oppressive regimes in exchange for coverage that ‘makes them look better..

It also includes criticism of Lyon in the response, claiming CNN International did not know she was there at first, because she didn’t follow CNN policy “when traveling to and reporting from areas in turmoil.”

Lyon isn’t buying it. Her Twitter feed Thursday was jam packed with references to Maddox, calling him out for attempting to ruin her reputation as a journalist and ignoring the assertion that he and his news organization are accepting funding from known dictators in exchange for coverage.

The CNN International response mentioned nothing about concerns over funding from the Bahraini government’s EDB….

Whether it be the Roman Catholic Church outlawing the personal possession and interpretation of the Bible over a thousand years ago, or the U.S. government classifying millions and millions of secret documents every single year, the ruling class has made it their top priority to control information throughout history; because if you can control information you can control public perception; and if you can control public perception you can control people’s interpretation of reality — which gives you tremendous power.

With the advent of the internet, however, this control has been dealt a fatal blow. Where once the people had to rely exclusively on the establishment for their news and understanding of the outside world, today we can research multiple perspectives, communicate internationally, and even be a source of news ourselves…
