#FakeNews: Social Justice Warrior College Newspaper the Washington Post Breathlessly Reports RUSSKIES HACKED OUR POWER GRIDZ!!!

Then, over a series of edits, none of which acknowledged itself as a formal correction, they walked the story back into... one computer -- a laptop not connected to the grid at all -- having some malware on it of a type that is routinely purchased online by anyone who wants it.

But tell us all about the Fake News, boys.

The college newspaper The Washington Post is refusing to answer questions about its fact-checking procedures, especially regarding the fact-checking of misleading, clickbait #FakeNews headlines.

16 The original premise was a joke anyway. Why the hell would the Russians haxx0r and pwn Vermont. It is a landlocked state far from any Russian zone of interest.

I suppose a missile from the Arctic might cross it, but the state is so very narrow it would have to be a well guided missile. Which somehow evaded Canadian / NORAD radar, neither of which were haxx0r3d nor pwnD.

Here's my theory from Saturday:

So an employee at this power plant in Vermont went to a webiste he shouldn't have went to. And he got the laptop infected with malware. So now it's a big hoax/coverup and a national story that the Russians "hacked" a US power plant.

74 The Russians Are Coming was actually very well done. But at the time you had 60s comedic actors (a wealth of good ones), and good writers - and probably a much more literate audience.


Saw it at the drive-in as a kid.


Years later, on the couch, watching it on cable. And I notice that Alan Arkin is doing his Russian lines with a perfect accent. Hmmm. Only then did I learn that he grew up the son of Russian immigrants, thus was a Russian speaker.


One more thing. Arkin's exchange with the sub captain, at the dock, explaining who "Whittaker Walt" is. The writing is interesting, in that its full humor is far above the likely audience knowledge.


Arkin says Whittaker (Carl Reiner) is a "writer". You can see the sub captain get more serious. He asks Arkin - "what does he write?". Arkin asks, then pauses with Reiner's answer (perfectly played) - then tells the captain, with a slightly apologetic tone, "musical comedies". Captain rolls his eyes in disappointment.


Funny as it was, but even better when one knows that writers were highly regarded in Russian/Soviet society, they had social status unlike anything known here.

It would be like a Shipping Vessel from 2050 squaring off against the US Navy circa 1975. I'm still betting on the purpose-built warships.

89 My usual approach, but yikes what this "hacking" stuff confirms about the effective national IQ.


Hacking and cyber-war efforts against the US are constant, and undertaken by all adversaries and probably a handful of friends and allies as well. As has been well known, for years.


So "hack attack on VT power grid!!!" - even assuming there was some there, there - is sort of like "NFL receiver drops easy pass!". Happens every week.


Where's the "news"? Where's the shock value? Not saying the country is giving a s**t about this "story", but that it *might* even do so, or WaPo might think that's the case, says a lot about the country.

90 75 The Russians Are Coming was actually very well done. But at the time you had 60s comedic actors (a wealth of good ones), and good writers - and probably a much more literate audience.

This too. The movie works while watching it for the first time, but falls apart when you think about it- at all really.

One of the founding premises of the movie is that the people are essentially the same no matter what has happened to change their circumstances.

Kirk is not right (where is the calm brilliance under stress? He is like a hyper-kinetic squirrel with emotional stability issues.)

Spock is not right.

Bones is right. But this leads into one of the major problems of the movie. Karl Urban is the only one actually playing the character. Everyone else is playing a caricature of the character they are supposed to be- even Leonard Nimoy.

They don't want independence. They want statehood. Mainly because they believe that it's going to come with a bailout for their government's years of profligate spending and enormous debt. And of course, they also want the few U.S. welfare goodies they're not currently eligible for (like the EITC).

Over a third of Puerto Rico's population already receives U.S. food stamps -- at a cost to U.S. taxpayers of billions of dollars a year. A quarter of PR's entire workforce is employed by . . . the government of PR. And you'll be shocked! to learn that PR's government pensions are massively underfunded.

So by all means, lets rush to make PR a state, because if there is one thing the U.S. desperately needs it's another state full of deadbeat losers who can't pay their own way and who think the solution to every problem is enlarge government and to grab for more federal tax dollars.

142 >> Hacking and cyber-war efforts against the US are
>> constant, and undertaken by all adversaries and
>> probably a handful of friends and allies as well. As
>> has been well known, for years.

Yes, absolutely.

Hacking can have several purposes, the attacker can be looking for (among other things):

a) More information about the site, facility, or organization they're attacking, to further future attacks.

b) Valuable commercial/technological information, whether credit-card numbers or F-22 blueprints, either for their own use or for resale.

c) Material damaging to the reputation of an individual or organization, possibly for blackmail or coercive purposes

d) Government/corporate internal deliberations, who's been talking to whom, decisions taken but not announced, whether for traditional spy-stuff purposes or for front-running the markets.

And so on.

So, when we look at the Wikileaks releases, what's NOT there is almost more important than what IS.

This information was the stuff that embarrassing but not nationally damaging, the stuff that a hacker sure enough of his personal safety - or just wanting to have some fun - would release because it wasn't important enough to hold onto.

There's no national-security related material in there. There's minimal communication to, from, and between high-level government officers. It's all functionaries at private entities (and the Democrat Party is not the US Government, despite their best efforts.)

There'd have been no real blackmail value to it - the negotiating window was closing November 8 and the Democrats were sure they were going to win. The Clinton Foundation took a hit, but nothing they couldn't have shrugged off had they won the election.

And there certainly was nothing of commercial value in it.

Personally, I conclude from this that whoever leaked this specifically AVOIDED certain classes of information, and there's most likely (as with OPM, Target, et al) probably much more in the hands of bad guys that's far too valuable in one way or another for its acquirer to let see the light of day - yet.

The whole last two seasons were pretty much perfect- except for the spider episode.

Overall that show did better characterization than pretty much any sci-fi show ever. Heck, you could probably argue it for anything on TV.

174 The Star trek film would have been okay rebooting if they'd made the whole film them in the academy desperately called up to deal with a nasty threat and pulling through against all odds because of teamwork and the immense skill of the captain at beating the impossible.

Instead he skates through school and gets a ship because Vulcan got blown up, or something. He was an even more insufferable Ferris Buhler, but graduating with honors.

240 As soon as I saw this story I was rolling on the floor, laughing. I know a bit more than most about how the US electric grid works, having worked for an electric utility for many years. Let it suffice to say that while it may not be utterly impossible for some hostile entity to hack into the electric grid, they would find it, well, lets just say, very difficult to do.

This because there are actually some very bright people running the US electric grids (there are actually three; the grid east of the Mississippi, the grid west of the Mississippi...and Texas...). And they have been very cognizant of the risks from a hack for a very long time. And let's just say, steps have been taken and leave it at that.

Now, does this mean some nimrod who works for some Vermont utility could have picked up some malware while surfing pR0n sites on his company laptop? Sure. Happens all the time. (It is also why most companies, especially electric utilities, are such fanatics about having good antivirus/malware software on their company computers, and will push updates on well nigh a daily basis to same.)

But does this mean the electric grid is at risk? Um, no. And if the idiots at the Washington Post had more than two brain cells to rub together among the lot of them, they could easily have found this out.

But, as I said, it was good for a laugh...

Posted by: steevy at January 02, 2017 06:37 PM (r/0kC)

Actually, no. The character of Yeoman Rand was planned to have continued, but unfortunately the actress playing that part, the late Grace Lee Whitney had a bad alcohol problem, and by the end of the first season that Roddenberry had to let her go. Her character was not "killed off", she just disappeared. Rand did appear in some of the Star Trek movies, but only in very small parts.

Isn't it most odd that those accused of benefiting from "white privilege" are not the ones who are allowed to benefit from Affirmative Action?

If there does exist a "privilege" based solely on skin color, isn't it blacks and their Affirmative Action? Of course it is! On govt exams for jobs, for example, a black applicant can score, like, 75 points and get spotted 25 points to make 100% score! That's what I'd call privilege up the yingyang.

I've had a premise for a novel the past decade, pondering how to non-violently persuade Leftists of the evil consequences of their ideas and behavior.

[I've tried to do some fiction writing, but am too much of a perfectionist and don't get far.]

Anyway, it involved using Virtual Reality to drug and kidnap Lefties and -- unbeknownst to them -- simulate their experiencing the destruction they wrought ... similar to your wondering what would have happened had Bernie spoken with Solzhenitsyn.

So cynical now, not sure that even those tactics would convince them of the errors of their ways ...

I would say that is far more connected to the athletic program and so the athletic program is who should be punished by the NCAA. The issue of child rape is one that should be handled by the state and punished by the state.

536 Why do I get the horrible feeling that something terrible happened at Cedar Point involving Jerry Sandusky?

Posted by: Aetius451AD at January 02, 2017 08:36 PM (92kX2)

537 We're arguing about Penn State and Sandusky? Is it pistols at 20 paces or sabers?
Posted by: Nevergiveup at January 02, 2017 08:33 PM (SjImc)

Pistols. Can't do much damage with a saber at 20 paces.

513 Penn [State] fan rally at Cedar Point.


The State part was absent.

Suffice it to say that when I visited Cedar Point in 2012 with a group that included high school and college students, they were firing off one snarky remark after another about Jerry Sandusky.

543 "If a coach robs a bank, is a team sanction appropriate?

Posted by: Splunge at January 02, 2017 08:32 PM (iMxBJ) "

If it's completely independent of the university/program? No. If administrators cover up for him so that he doesn't go to jail in order to benefit the program? Then yeah, I think NCAA sanctions are appropriate. And yes, I know that's not an exact analogue to the Penn St situation.

550 No. Some psychos here think the guys on the field should be sitting in jail with Sandusky.
Posted by: Buzzion at January 02, 2017 08:35 PM (cAnNx

Putting words in my mouth. never said players should be in jail. You said that. Playing the MSM game.

So I'm a psycho for saying institionalized boy rape is bad and should be punished. Well then I'm a proud psycho then.

Boy rape is bad. It should not be celebrated like it is while Penn State is aloud to play football. Crazy right?

551 Mrs. Krebs has been watching a "Downton Abbey" marathon on the local PBS station for the past day or so. Of course it's a "sucking for bucks" event.

To hear the whiny beggars tell it, they lurves them some aristocracy and, by gum, you should, too! 'Splains a lot about lefty politics, I think.

Posted by: Krebs v Carnot: Epic Battle of the Cycling Stars (TM) at January 02, 2017 07:37 PM (BK3ZS)



Every time I flip past a PBS station they have their hands out begging for money. Must be for all of the British shows they've been running for years and years and year and they still need more money for them and not the executives salaries.

564 Not fighting Pepe but Sandusky is in jail, so everyone one that was a employee of the school and future students and faculty should all be banished I guess.
