“It is a fact that we are in the middle of a major information war directed from China at Japan, at the United States, and others.” —Michael Yon
*
If references to “China” were widely understood to indicate only “some Chinese in positions of power,” not all individual citizens of China, it would allow for the probability that there are citizens of China who value truth. Our use of language must never forget them: they are our allies. Your use of the phrase “directed from China” shows that you understand this, and it should encourage Patreon members to support your work. -ls

Buenos Aires Herald : A final letter to subscribers, after 140 years of publication, Wednesday October 26th, 2016 provided to us (hand typed) by Albert Turner, Buenos Aires resident, a devoted reader and friendly critic of the Herald.
V
“It is with unspeakable sadness that we print our last edition today as the only English language newspaper in Latin America, ending the Buenos Aires Herald’s 140-year run.” ••• (the entire letter)
V
From the letter, At the end of the day, three paragraphs on freedom of the press:
*
It must be repeated, as we have said many times in these pages, that freedom of expression is a delicate flower, one with multiple requirements—for example, a company or organization which understands the mission, values, history and readers of a newspaper but also a state which does not overlook its duty to promote pluralism (an obligation that is not always ensured through having an elected government — both left-wing populist policies and market-friendly policies can lead to similar realities for the media market).
Regardless of whether the public or private sector is to blame, the concentration of the media into the hands of the few, ones with an axe to grind, always conspires against the right to information — a right which the social networks do not always preserve. The new digital culture demands innovative, serious, long-term strategies. It also requires a government that is willing and able to protect voices and ensure that pluralism is reflected in the media landscape.
For most of you who take the time to read this, we do not need to explain our history as a publication nor our most illustrious period during the military dictatorship. Whatever the Herald’s future is, we must maintain the pillars for which it has always stood — the diversity of ideas and cultures, a respect for individual life choices, defending human rights and abhorring those who infringe them. Not just to reflect one view, but a multitude of them, this is the true demonstration of democracy in action.

Albert’s post to his Facebook page, October 26, 2016:
*
‘I have been a "loyal reader" of the Herald for well over a decade. And, as probably some of you know, a critical one; but, I am not reluctant to tell you that there are tears in my eyes over the "End of the Day" for the Buenos Aires Herald.’ Then he posted the letter from the Herald.
