Another Reason To Dump FaceBook

Now you know the rest of the story by Mitch Santell

Here is another substantial reason to get off of your FaceBook Account. The EU (European Union) is shoving their rules and regulations down every American user.


Facebook announced Wednesday it would begin rolling out changes to how it handles private data this week to comply with forthcoming EU rules, with European residents seeing the measures first.

The social network, which has been rocked by disclosures about hijacking of personal data on tens of millions of its users, said it will start implementing “new privacy experiences” to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which become effective May 25.

“Everyone—no matter where they live—will be asked to review important information about how Facebook uses data and make choices about their privacy on Facebook,” said a statement from chief privacy officer Erin Egan and deputy general counsel Ashlie Beringer.

“We’ll begin by rolling these choices out in Europe this week.”

Under the new policy, Facebook users will be asked to review and make choices about ads they receive, including whether they want Facebook to use data from third parties.

Facebook users will also be asked to review and choose what to share about the political, religious, and relationship information on their profiles.

Additionally, users will be allowed to opt in or out of use of facial recognition technology.

The statement said users will be told that facial recognition is optional, but that it could offer some benefit, such as being notified when someone is using an unauthorized picture.

“We not only want to comply with the law, but also go beyond our obligations to build new and improved privacy experiences for everyone on Facebook,” Egan and Beringer wrote.

The news comes a week after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg faced 10 hours of questioning in two congressional panels following revelations that personal data was harvested on 87 million users by Cambridge Analytica, a consultancy working for Donal Trump’s 2016 campaign.

The issue for me as always is privacy. This is what Steve Jobs had to say about Privacy back in the day!

“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.” – Steve Jobs

Netflix is Blowing Hollywood’s Mind

Reflections on Hollywood Studio fall out by Mitch Santell

Netflix as a company that has the strength, financial backing, and corporate culture to take down the current Hollywood Studio System as we know it! How do I know this? This is the 4th or 5th time that Hollywood has had to confront its own shortcomings.

Netflix can change game plans much faster than a regular studio. The most recent example of this was the new season of Arrested Development. Season 4 which had mixed reviews by fans and critics alike was literally re-mixed, re-edited by Mitchell Hurwitz the Executive Producer (Writer and sometimes Director of the show).

Not only did Mitchell Hurwitz have the integrity to Re-Edit Season 4 on Netflix just days before the release of Season 5, even though Jeffrey Tambor was “accused” of “sexual misconduct,” Mr. Hurwitz did not punish Tambor or the series. 

According to the Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES — The creator and executive producer of “Arrested Development” acknowledges that some people will not like his decision to keep Jeffrey Tambor on the show after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced last October.

“Good people will find this offensive,” explained Mitchell Hurwitz. “I, too, get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don’t want to live in a world where accusations ruin people’s lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn’t always, doesn’t work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven’t done, that haven’t been proved guilty.”

Hurwitz said production was nearly wrapped on season five when news broke of the allegations made by Tambor’s former assistant and an actress on his other show, “Transparent.”

“Not only do I support him as a friend, but I’ve known him for 20 years. I’ve worked with him for 20 years and I’ve never seen any behavior like that described. I’ve never, even in private, he’s never been in any way inappropriate about, we don’t talk about women or objectify. It’s just not who he is, and he’s got a lot of things that I’d like to list, a lot of really bad qualities I’d like to list for you now, but nowhere in there, in my experience, is any kind of creep,” said Hurwitz.

The “Arrested Development” cast unanimously supported the 73-year-old actor at the Los Angeles premiere Thursday for the cult comedy’s new season. The event also marked one of the first public appearances for Tambor in recent months. Tambor posed for photos with his wife, Kasia Ostlun, but didn’t do interviews with the press.

“We are a family and it’s great to have everybody in the family here,” said co-star Will Arnett.

Why Was Sean Hannity Attacked Today?

Insightful Delusions by Mitch Santell

Sean Hannity who has been in syndication on radio and tell-lie-vision for many years is a real hero to me. Why? Answer: He stands up for what he believes. Now, you may not be like-minded with him; each time I listen to him (which is not daily because of @BigReggaeMix), I am impressed with how authentic he is with his remarks.

Sean Hannity Standing Up for What He Believes In

Here is what he had to say on the air today as a result of being named in court. What do I do? I listen, read, observe and take a zen-like non-attachment to what is happening at the moment. Crazy is the new normal!

The audio clip is 49 seconds.

 

Parting shot: It’s all a big show that is presented to you as a lovely entertainment.
