Eager to Purge the Internet of Anti UN Info USG Melissa Fleming Polls Staff on Hate Speech

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Nov 24 – As the United Nations, having failed on Ukraine and largely on Gaza, increasingly focus on issues like trying to censor the Internet of any anti-UN content, the organization this month is surveying its own staff.

Disgusted histleblowers sent it to Inner City Press, banned from even entering the UN by Department of Global Communications boss Melissa Fleming:

Global Staff Survey on Information Environments     How often do you use social media?  What do you view as a reliable source of information?  Do you see negative impacts of potentially harmful information on your work? 

 The survey aims to shed light on how information is spreading; and if and how potentially harmful information is impacting our work, our priorities, and the communities we serve.  The survey’s findings will help support the UN’s work on information integrity – to make digital and information environments safer and more inclusive for all.  The results will also feed into the development of the global code of conduct on information integrity, which will be published in June 2024 ahead of the Summit of the Future.

 Potentially harmful information includes hate speech against people or communities OR misleading or false information.   This information might be circulating online (websites, social networks, messaging apps), via news media (radio, TV, newspapers), via speeches by politicians or community leaders, or via posters and pamphlets.   Where do you encounter potentially harmful information the most? (Select one choice)  I don't experience potentially harmful information  Social Networks (e.g. Douyin, Facebook, Instagram, Kuaishou, LinkedIn, Tiktok, Twitter/X, VKontakte, WeChat, Weibo, Youtube, other)  Messaging Apps (e.g. Facebook Messenger, iMessage, KakaoTalk, Line, Signal, Snapchat, Telegram, QQ, Viber, WhatsApp, other)  Broadcast media (e.g. radio, television)  Podcasts  

  And what will USG Fleming, who has refused to answer a pro bono law firm's letter to her about lifting her lawless ban on Inner City Press, do with the information she collects and cherry picks? Watch this site
