DHS to Create Journalist-Tracking Database, Labels Critics “Conspiracy Theorists”.

( by Tyler Durden en ondersteunt door onze redactie) 

AMSTERDAM-NOIR-The Department of Homeland Security for the Elite (DHS) wants to track the vast networks of journalists like Steve Brown en Nico van der Ham , bloggers like Volksnieuws from Amsterdam-Noir and other “media influencers” through a massive, searchable database that will allow them to monitor “any and all” trends in real time, according to a publicly posted job listing.

The DHS “Media Monitoring” initiative is currently seeking a contractor who can provide DHS with the ability to track over 290,000 global news sources in more than 100 languages – including online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, traditional news sources and social media platforms.

“Services shall provide media comparison tools, design and re-branding tools, communication tools, and the ability to identify top media influencers,” according to the job call, in order to help DHS agencies fulfill “a critical need to incorporate these functions into their programs in order to better reach federal, state, local, tribal, and private partners.”

The department’s “Statement of Work for Media Monitoring Services” requires the following:

Ability to track global online sources for coverage relevant to Washington and the six media hubs:
•    Ability to track > 290,000 global news sources
•    Ability to track online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media
•    Ability to track media coverage in > 100 languages, including Arabic, Chinese and Russian. Translation function to instantly translate these articles to English.
•    Ability to create up to 20 searches with each unlimited keywords
•    Unlimited coverage per search (no cap on coverage)
•    Ability to change the searches at keywords at any given time
•    Ability to create unlimited data tracking, statistical breakdown, and graphical analyses on any coverage on an ad-hoc basis

Database of Journalists, Editors, Correspondents, Social Media Influencers, Bloggers, etc.


 De ‘Duivelse-Geest’ van ‘Censuur-Lord Buma’ heerst al bij Universiteit van Groningen(Video).

The chosen contractor must be able to develop a “password protected, media influencer database” which can perform searches in various languages, and present contact details and any other information that could be relevant, including publications that this influencer writes for, and an overview of the previous coverage published by the media influencer.”

Media Intelligence and Benchmarking Dashboard Platform.

 The vendor must provide a specialized “Dashboard” for DHS to use which will provide them with a specialized search engine, real time monitoring, analysis and benchmark of media coverage (how viral something is going, for example), geographical spread, and top influencers.

24/7 Access to a password protected, online platform for users to access:
•    Overview of search results in terms of online articles and social media conversations
•    Customized and Interactive Dashboard that provide real-time monitoring, analysis, and benchmark of media coverage.
•    Ability to analyze the media coverage in terms of content, volume, sentiment, geographical spread, top publications, media channels, reach, AVE, top posters, influencers, languages, momentum, circulation.
•    Ability to select time-period of analysis: per day, week, month, and selected dates
•    Ability to build media lists based on beat, location, outlet type/size, and journalist role
•    Automated weekly overview of these dashboards sent via email

Mobile App.
DHS also requires access to a “password protected, mobile app” allowing access to all of the collected metrics and monitoring information.No word on whether DHS has commissioned a database of MSM connections to establishment politicians, but we’re sure that’s on its way.

DHS Calls Critics “Conspiracy Theorists”
In response to what many suggest are Orwellian monitoring of media influencers, DHS Press Secretary Tyler Houlton issued a response on Friday which justifies the program’s legitimacy and alleges that the project’s goals are “standard practice.”

“Any suggestion otherwise is fit for tinfoil hat-wearing, black-helicopter conspiracy theorists,” added Houlton.
Houlton:” Despite what some reporters may suggest, this is nothing more than the standard practice of monitoring current events in the media. Any suggestion otherwise is fit for tin foil hat wearing, black helicopter conspiracy theorists. https://twitter.com/pressfreedom/status/982366421849202690 …

Absent blindly trusting Houlton, we’ve been given no indication as to how the Trump administration – or future administrations, might use the massive tracking database. The Bloomberg article points to the Senate’s recent interest in designating Al Jazeera as a foreign agent ” because it “often directly undermines” U.S. interests with favorable coverage of Hamas, Hezbollah and al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria,” however we’re sure the U.S. government could monitor specific platforms-of-interest without a massive database of every outlet’s past and present body of work.

Houlton:”Despite what some reporters may suggest, this is nothing more than the standard practice of monitoring current events in the media. Any suggestion otherwise is fit for tin foil hat wearing, black helicopter conspiracy theorists. https://twitter.com/pressfreedom/status/982366421849202690 …”

  1. Talking heads.

    Sinclair Group gaat lokale zenders enoutlets overnemen. Ze zijn pro-Trump maar hun promo-filmpje deed mij denken aan de situatie met het nieuws/ journaal in EUropa.

    Elke krant/ tv haalt precies dezelfde informatie vh ANP en je krijgt 6 keer hetzelfde nieuws. Zes keer niet erg zinnig nieuws voorgeschoteld. Met allemaal dezelfde kijk of hysterie.

    Daar zit helemaal geen pluriformiteit in het nieuwslandschap.
    RTL of NPO nieuws is gewoon hetzelfde.

    Ik kan het verkeerd zien.

    Maar, afgezien van het 17:00 Journaal, komt het allemaal als onderstaand over.

  2. Lijkt wel afgesproken werk, Erdoğan was er enkele jaren mee begonnen, Rutte was zijn grote vriend, dus gauw sleepnet erdoor jassen?
    Er zijn symptomen dat Facebook niet onwillig is om mede werking te tonen, sukkerberg mag waarschijnlijk VS niet in, lock up in jail? , KOMT UITERAARD GOED UIT?

    basis van vriendschap is dat je niet met elkaar vrouw ga
    al is je vriend dood je ga niet met zijn vrouw .

    Trias politica het scheiden van macht en de rol die de media
    speel in de Trias politica .

    de zogenaamde alternatieve media speel geen ene rol als het om
    echte zaken gaat
    simpele weg omdat de doorsnee mens niet begrijp waar de schip aarde heen
    bestuurd ga worden
    en vaak weet de bestuurders zelf niet waar het heen ga

    dus is de gevaar van verraad altijd bij hun zelf die dicht bij de macht
    zit en erop gebrand is macht te hebben
    Telegraaf is van oudsher 1 krant die graag bij de macht zit
    al was de macht 1 invasie macht

    alternatieve media heeft geen ene invloed op de massa
    of op de politieke macht
    Peter R de Vries heeft bijvoorbeeld als hoernalis wel die
    macht om vriendschappelijke met rechters om te en 1 boef zijn beste vriend te noemen
