On Quinn Norton & New York Times, February 15th, 2017

Some tweets I’d like to share, because I don’t have the time yet to bang out an actual blog post.

Older I get, more I’m convinced that the greater evil is not ignorance but the premature conclusion that you’ve understood something that is, in truth,  extraordinarily complex

Because misogyny is always the right answer when you’re punching down. JFC, liberal America, you wouldn’t look so obviously hypocritical if you could keep your priorities straight.

I freely admit I’m walking into this situation full of bias, because @quinnnorton and I have a long history of friendship and mutual support, through issues including partner suicide. History means knowing that the thought-terminating cliches are especially bullshit here.

Quinn Norton has written insightfully on all manner of subjects for years. People who first became aware of her two hours ago rendered immediate furious judgment based on a trivial snippet of what she’s done, and NYT immediately acquiesced to their demands. Not a healthy dynamic

Maybe she has flaws, but the breakneck speed with which these outrages now progress didn’t allow for even a moment to consider her entire body of work – she’s immediately denounced as an irredeemably horrible person. PR department doesn’t want the hassle, so they cave

Iklim Media yang Serba Takut

Meme pic oleh Eli Digembok

Dari Ade Armando di Facebook:

Karena saya dulu anggota Komisi Penyiaran Indonesia, sejumlah orang bertanya kenapa KPI memerintahkan stasiun televisi memblur gambar para atlet renang yang bertarung di PON?

Yang saya tahu sih ini sebenarnya inisiatif stasiun televisi.

Namun harus diakui, stasiun televisi berinsiatif begitu mungkin karena takut pada KPI yang sejak beberapa tahun terakhir ini memang terkesan sering mengada-ada.

Jadi, lembaga-lembaga penyiaran itu mungkin berpikir, daripada dapat surat teguran, ya mendingan blur aja duluan.

Bahkan sekarang pun, sikap KPI nampak gamang. Tidak ada sikap yang jelas.

Padahal sebenarnya KPI sudah punya Standard Program Siaran yang mereka keluarkan sendiri.

Di SPS itu jelas tidak ada kewajiban untuk memblur atlet renang atau semacamnya.

Yang ada adalah pelarangan stasiun televisi untuk mengeksploitasi dan/atau menampilkan bagian-bagian tubuh tertentu, seperti: paha, bokong, payudara, secara close up dan/atau medium shot. (Pasal 18 ayat h).

Jadi kalau cuma adegan atlet renang berpakaian renang, ya pasti tidak bermasalah.

Masalahnya, para komisioner KPI dan para pengelola program televisi itu memahamai isi SPS atau tidak?
