How the New Zealand Gunman Used Social Media | NYT News


“As people get desensitized
to the same types of attacks, there’s incentive to try
something new: using tactics, new weapons, new targets and, in this case, we have
this live-streaming.” “Facebook and Twitter frantically
trying to pull this down. I think that was
part of the panic that this person
wanted to inspire, and that is a different
dimension than one that we’ve seen previously.” “And, of course, that heightens
the drama of the events. It also heightens the
worldwide interest in a case such
as this, which is exactly what the
perpetrator wants.” “Terrorism needs an audience.
Without the message alongside the violence, it’s not terrorism.” “They want the world
to know why they’re doing what they’re doing.” “Having that live
audience there with them and seeing the
messages coming through might have been
one way of sort of sustaining his motivation
right the way through.” “There have been
multiple murders, suicides, sexual assaults that have
been live-streamed on Facebook. And the real concern,
especially when you’re looking at a mass
shooting, a mass atrocity, is the social
contagion aspect of it.” “This is a way, in a sense,
to use the social media to transmit an extremist virus
throughout the global sphere.” “It is to cause more turmoil
after their attacks, try to attract more people to
doing similar type of things.” “But the other sense
of the contagion is also just the
secondary trauma that this is going to
subject anybody who sees it to. A kid can witness things
that a person who might have fought in a war would have
never seen.” “This law that we have, Section 230 of the
Communications Decency Act, pretty much carves out
this immunity for the tech industry that the
only parallel I can see to it in
any other sense is the firearms industry. So, with both of
those industries, we have engaged in the
same rhetoric that says, You have neutral
tools and we’re not going to hold you
accountable, even for the most atrocious
and predictable things that people will
do with your tools.” “Terrorism is a sort of a
public health problem, right? If there’s organizations
or industries that are contributing to
a public health problem, typically they end
up getting regulated and they end up
getting fined if they step outside of those
regulations that have been set up. And I think that
this particular space should be treated
no differently than anything else that’s
causing public health problems.” “But it’s going to
take a political will to make a difference in
terms of the mass murders. It’s going to take a
corporate conscience that says that the control of
the social media propagation is as important as
the bottom line.”

  • Joseph Campbell says:

    The U.S. Treasury controls the printing of money in the United States. However, the Federal Reserve Bank has control of the money supply through its power to create credit with interest rates and reserve requirements. … Instead, the Fed functions as a bank for all the other banks in the country.

    The Federal Reserve Banks are not a part of the federal government, but they exist because of an act of Congress. … While the Board of Governors is an independent government agency, the Federal Reserve Banks are set up like private corporations.

    Member banks hold stock in the Federal Reserve Banks and earn dividends
    The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths with mostly British, and most notably the Rothschild dynasty.

    And they dividing us people so we can never held them accountable , Muslim White Black we all human And all this MSM is fueling rage among good innocent people .
    They put their puppet Politicians whores in power through Lobbys (isn't it's creepy that both Red and Blue Leaders before Election show their loyalty to Zionism in AIPAC ) and force them to wage war in Muslim world then granted Asylum those Muslim in west ( where is weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq ?? War still going on , USA leave all their weapons in that law less country so ISIS can take them and do all this Google Jhon McCain and Isis leader Abu bakar Al Bagdadi , read Operation Cyclone how why who Osama bin Laden and Afghanistan history in Wikipedia come on open ur eyes ) Don't let them divided us .

  • And here Facebook bans conservatives immediately for speech, but cannot stop a gruesome video of murder. Explain that one NYT.

  • Imma crush this before they even bring it up. He was a Terrorist who WASNT ILL nor Had ANY MENTAL ILLNESS, he loaded up tons of magazines and Legibly wrote hateful messages on them. AND drove three miles to the mosque without disobeying traffic rules. AND had a livestream with his intent fully aware to others. So no, there better not be ANYTHING IN THE NEWS or anyone saying “oh, no no no, it wasn’t a hate crime, he was mentally ill and had no idea what he was doing”

  • Lol taking nothing away from what happened I just gotta say the media stays pretty silent on what's happening to some Christians around the world. I'm not one myself but I'm starting to see a biased trend forming.

  • He is a terrorist. Calling him a gunman feels wrong. It lessens the evil nature of his attack. I opted not to use Facebook years ago. I don't see the point of sharing my every, very ordinary move. I'm not sure if there is a solution to the horror of livestreeming evil events. Computers don't have crystal balls embedded in their core.

  • How many people know two members of this mosque were killed in Iraq as isis fighters. Also they were caught teaching extremist values out of there mosque?

  • It´s so obvious that these "experts" and new york times "journalists" haven´t even read the manifesto. Because they are acting exactly as the shooter wanted them to, trying to push for gun laws and censorship. Also, this man was not a right winger, quite the opposite, and where was the manifesto racist? Once again, just one big cirlejerk of new york times journalists.

  • I saw the video; and the gun's this dude had were out of a CoD game. He had a semi auto shogun, (which might as well have been full auto by how fast he shot it), and with a strobe light attachment. plus all kinds of military grade assault rifles. How could the New Zealand population be so shocked this happen? Even though he got these assault weapons lawfully-for what? Hunting deer? What a seriously naive society.

  • Person McPerson says:

    I am glad I did not watch this. I will not allow myself to see through their demoniac, warped, WRONG point of view! Also, if you still have a facebook or twitter I would strongly suggest you delete it. YOU DON'T NEED IT. You don't need the toxicity. Engage your morals. Your ethics. You don't need to be a part of their terrible game they are trying to wage online. #DeleteFacebook #SocialMediaCausesMentalDisorders #PublicHealthIssue

  • He's not "the New Zealand gunman", he's "the Australian gunman who killed innocent Muslims in New Zealand", and I'm sure Australia won't even claim him.

  • Imagine if Hitler had internet, youtube, Facebook, IG, and Twitter plus Fox, the number of Nazi would have been overwhelmingly global and the world would have lost to Hitler. There must be a Cyber Policing to prevent 100% all Hate or Violent promoting on social media. Without Cyber policing, social media is a Pro-Violence Pro Terrorists platform for ISIS and White Supremacists.

  • He also said he only did all of this to get the idiots in the media to stir-up hate against Donald Trump and gun owners … I guess he succeeded in that objective.

  • I've noticed that the media has largely failed to mentioned that several of the members of these mosque were killed as ISIS fighters… maybe the shooter had good reason to target these 2 places ? We'll never know because real journalism is dead in America.

  • Australian terrorist shooter should be charged as terrorist rather than trying to defend him by giving different excuses and names

  • One of the things they don't tell you is that is that the shooter was actually an admirer of communist china. They are so quick to flat out lie. The media immediately blamed Trump for this attack, when the gunman was actually a communist. The Guardian said he was a far right radical when the opposite was true. Some left media outlets don't say anything about his ideology, and only stick to their anti-gun rhetoric. Few outlets actually go into the actually far left beliefs of the shooter. This is why I am so leery of the news media.
    When Jerad Loughner shot Gabby Giffords and killed several others in Arizona the Media was quick to point out that the shooter was influenced by a Sarah Palin website, when in fact he was an admirer of Giffords. the media to this day never recanted the story. Loughner was a Democrat/socialist. They are so quick to make misleading videos like this one.

  • Social media should be charged a hefty penalty for each hate crime postings. Hurt their pockets. This should curb their Pro-Terrorists platforms.

  • but i didn't get any answer to how would you prevent someone from streaming terorist act, if it happens so quick, from tehnological side of things

  • Live streaming has been around. I remember in college 2005 a kid killed himself with Justin.tv (now twitch) taking a bunch of Xanax. I mean, the internet is here. People use it and I know people don’t like the term “bad actors” but, people that want to cause harm exist.

  • realitycheck2001 says:

    To allow a columnist to lay responsibility for this nightmare at the feet of Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson is recklessly irresponsible. Shame on you New York Times.

  • Arshad Chauhan says:

    Media Madar chodo wo gunman nahi.. Terrorist he.. Terror attack thaa.. Bc gunaman ganman karte ho harami mediaaa pehle bhi tha or ab badh gyaaa

  • Michael Boylan says:

    The expert Mr Maloy says,,,its gunna take a corporate conscience etc What is a corporate conscience, Do corporations have a conscience department, I think it is an oxymoron like military intelligence, How long should we wait for corporate conscience to come into being, 200 or 300 years

  • Achmad Fajrul Fikar says:

    APOLOGIZE ME.😢

  • Here's one thing to consider. If the New Zealand Shooter did this for notoriety. And he streamed it live. Shouldn't Facebook be held accountable in some way??? If it wasn't for Facebook, this wouldn't have got so large as it did. So many people shared it. And so many saw it. Also I bet 100% this man used Facebook to link up with likeminded individuals who carries his hateful views. Once again, shouldnt Facebook be held accountable???

  • Still no mention in the MSM about the Nigerian Christian genocide. 32 Killed in a Church fire.

  • Firnanda Into the wild says:
