Uh what the hell?? So Harvard took money from her??
"...her superiors took away her ability to start new projects, raise money or organize large events, she alleges. They kept the money she had brought in, including more than $1 million from Craigslist founder Craig Newmark that he wanted specifically to go to her research project, according to documents quoted in the declaration."
"Whistleblower allegation: Harvard muzzled disinfo team after $500 million Zuckerberg donation"
"A prominent disinformation scholar who left Harvard University in August has accused the school of muzzling her speech and stifling — then dismantling — her research team as it launched a deep dive in late 2021 into a trove of Facebook files she considers the most important documents in internet history."
Researcher claims Harvard nixed social media research after getting Zuck bucks https://go.theregister.com/feed/www.theregister.com/2023/12/04/researcher_harvard_meta/
Screw Meta and Harvard University. They have soiled themselves* too many times to have scientific merit.
'A former Harvard misformation scholar has filed a whistleblower complaint against the Ivy League university, alleging that its Kennedy School canceled her research into social media harms in order to protect a $500 million donation from The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
Harvard insists that the charges are totally, absolutely, definitely unfounded and that Meta has no undue influence at the school just because former student Mark Zuckerberg's philanthropic organization promised the largest donation to date, or because Facebook's former comms head Elliot Schrage participates in a fundraising body for the Kennedy School called the Dean's Council.'
*For Meta, see the Myanmar genocide. For Harvard University, see the documentary 'Inside Job'.
Edit: Edit: No sueing happening yet.
Need a judge with a sense of irony to assign punitive damages of, oh, $600 million?
That at least would straighten out corporate-types' misunderstandings about the monetary value of #AcademicFreedom.
They could even be enthusiastic about academic freedom.
Pesquisadora acusa Harvard de demiti-la para agradar Facebook
🧐 Misinformation researcher Joan Donovan accuses Harvard of bowing to Facebook | @washingtonpost
"Joan Donovan claimed in a filing with the Education Department and the Massachusetts attorney general that her superiors soured on her as Harvard was getting a record $500 million pledge from Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg’s charitable arm."
Harvard, am I right?
"After $500m Zuckerberg donation, Harvard university gutted its disinformation team studying Facebook."
Harvard is willing, smiles, treats you like a boyfriend, hand-jobs are frequent, and if the price is right, Harvard will screw America.
Misinformation expert says she was fired by #Harvard under #Meta pressure: Joan Donovan says funding was cut off for criticizing Meta when university was receiving $500m from Mark Zuckerberg’s charity
"One of the world’s leading experts on misinformation says she was fired by Harvard University for criticising Meta at a time that the school was being pledged $500m from Mark Zuckerberg’s charity.
Joan Donovan says her funding was cut off, she could not hire assistants and she was made the target of a smear campaign by Harvard employees."
Harvard gutted team examining Facebook Files following $500M Zuckerberg donation - project went from being a source of pride to a thorn in the #Harvard fundraising machine and valuable research was stifled according to the whistleblower. #Censorship #research #universities #whistleblowers https://live-whistleblower-aid.pantheonsite.io/joan-donovan-press-release/
Joseph Menn: Ousted propaganda scholar Joan Donovan accuses #Harvard of bowing to Meta: In a #whistleblower complaint, she breaks her silence over events that unsettled other misinformation researchers
"A prominent disinformation scholar has accused Harvard of dismissing her to curry favor with #Facebook and its current and former executives in violation of her right to free speech.
Joan Donovan claimed in a filing with the Education Department and the MA attorney general that her superiors soured on her as Harvard was getting a record $500 million pledge from #Meta founder Zuckerberg’s charitable arm.
As research director of Harvard Kennedy School projects delving into mis- and #disinformation on social media platforms, Donovan had raised millions in grants, testified before Congress and been a frequent commentator on television, often faulting internet companies for profiting from the spread of divisive falsehoods."
One of the weird things about #mastodon is how people are surprised that #Harvard can act very very badly
when Trump was POTUS, harvard gave fellowships to people Like Sean Spicer
and, iirc, when Drew Faust was president, she welcomed back to campus a distinguished alumnus, one Dr Henry Kissinger

#Harvard 📆 October 11, 2022 : Some spaghettified material occasionally gets flung out back into #space 🌌. #Astronomers liken it to #BlackHoles ⚫ being messy eaters — not everything they try to consume makes it into their mouths.
But the emission, known as an outflow, normally develops quickly after a #TDE occurs — not years later.
The outflow of material is traveling as fast as 50 percent the #SpeedOfLight. For comparison, most TDEs have an outflow that travels at 10 percent the speed of light https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2022/10/black-hole-burps-up-shredded-star-years-after-consuming-it/

... #JoanDonovan ... lays out in detail how she and her research team at Harvard’s #KennedySchool #HKS came under sudden scrutiny from the school’s dean, #DouglasElmendorf, ..., after they started working on #HaugenFacebookFiles – a cache Donovan describes as “the most important documents in the history of the internet.
Dead horse or Harvard stinking?
"It [Harvard] also denies that she was fired, saying she “was offered the chance to continue as a part-time adjunct lecturer, and she chose not to do so.”"

Our oligarchs are so rich they don’t need to hire assassins to take care of the pesky journalists who cover their crimes, like they do in less wealthy countries.
They just obliterate the truth tellers and fact checkers with money.

"Education Department investigates Harvard following anti-Semitism complaint"
"The Department of Education added Harvard University to a list of institutions under investigation for alleged anti-Semitic and Islamophobic incidents on campus.
Harvard was added to the list, which includes 57 elementary-secondary and post-secondary institutions 'currently under investigation for discrimination involving shared ancestry' on Tuesday."

If you hate Kissinger, don't forget to blame Nixon, too:
"After getting out of the army, he attended Harvard. His 300-page undergraduate thesis was titled, 'The Meaning of History.' He went on to teach at #Harvard, becoming known for his hawkish views.
"Kissinger's writings brought him to the attention of Richard #Nixon, who made #Kissinger his national security adviser. Over the next few years, he directed one of the boldest periods of diplomacy in U.S. history."

“with a few exceptions, these once loud and incessant free speech defenders have bowed their heads and fallen silent.

SHUT IT DOWN FOR PALESTINE 🇵🇸
MIT, Brandeis, Harvard, and several other institutions have tried to repress their students’ support for Palestine with threats, arrests, and suspensions.
BUT THEY CAN’T SUSPEND THE MOVEMENT!!
Join us in demanding an immediate ceasefire, an end to the siege on Gaza, an end to the US-funded Israeli occupation, and a Free Palestine!

"Ron DeSantis got his BA from Yale, and his law degree from Harvard. But these credentials have not stopped the Republican presidential contender from spewing out a toxic slurry of ignorant bigotry regarding the Palestinian men, women, and children who have been forced to flee from Israel’s 'complete siege' of Gaza."
