Collins was also supposed to have a role in the Boston-based movie “Ted 2,” which just wrapped its local shoot. On Friday, Collins responded to a fan on Twitter who asked what his role would be in the comedy sequel. “I’d tell you but [director Seth MacFarlane] would have to kill me,”
Oh, Seth “Missed the plane” MacFarlane again tied in with a celeb-death related story (excerpt from link in last post)
Oh it gets more complicated
Stephen Collins reportedly under investigation for Child molestation
I kind of took it at first as simple as Sarah Goldberg dying to bring attention to Jurassic Park and then Stephen Collins as an echo to remind of that once again. But it looks a bit more complicatedMay 25, 2014 at 11:24 pm in reply to: Isla Vista Drive-By Shootings Santa Barbara 23/5/2014 #9571
I thought they had special people to deal with crime scene cleanup? Just let the business owner mess with a bloody crime scene? It would be interesting (if I was a local) to observe if the store gets all new merchandise, or if they don’t even bother as there’s no actual blood contamination.
This one is pretty disturbing, the background of the shooter is custom designed to demonize a significant fraction of young men.May 25, 2014 at 1:27 am in reply to: Isla Vista Drive-By Shootings Santa Barbara 23/5/2014 #9553
I noticed that breakingnews.com, which normally has a steady trickle of stories 24/7/365 is letting this story sit on top. No unrelated stories posted for 5+ hours. Very strangeMay 25, 2014 at 1:01 am in reply to: Isla Vista Drive-By Shootings Santa Barbara 23/5/2014 #9551
A few more pics and somebody called “Rodger Dodger” apparently made notes from the scanner. Note that the second-shooter rabbit hole was seeded. I’m already seeing the usual conspiracy sites picking up the second shooter theory. Another misdirection like the “man in the woods” from Sandy Hook.
I’ve noticed that there are not really that many pics from this event. I also noticed that the neighborhood would be extremely easy for law enforcement to control.

Check out this picture. Completely laughable. The background and props are crappy renders with the people (whatever they are made from) pasted on top

Thanks Khammad. If anybody wants any help setting up such a thing for their own use I could provide pointers/support. Pretty nifty software and I bet it gets an expanded feature list eventually. Neat to be able to run your own, on your own server, and make your own custom changes to the code if you want. It could be useful for those who go through large numbers of images.
I took it down at panopticron.pw, that was just for testing
I don’t know what to say about the blatant symbols but it’s the same with popular entertainment all over the place. All of Youtube’s top videos, in the hundreds of millions of views, are music videos just laden with esoteric imagery.
Apparently, it sells
You might get closer to somebody to speak to on a newer and smaller psyop.
I like the idea too. I’ve ran into a thousand people on social media I’d like to question about fake looking stories and none of them have had anybody ask them questions except in controlled situations. Most never had any questions aimed at them, they just posted what they saw or whatever and media ran with it. I’d love to even ask them for just a few details. See what the response is.
Stuff in the IPTC tag and signatures is relevant to the NewsML-G2 standard which is used to distribute news from wire services to local orgs. The standard allows for containers for new items and for planning based on time schedules and I think it explains a lot about the tech they use every day to distribute psyops in a controlled manner. I’ll made a thread about that soon. It’s all technical and don’t expect it to be some easy way to prove planning of news fakery, but I think it’s essential to understanding what’s in media metadata.
Comparison of metadata analysis for a specific image between the Ghiro version running on my own server (most recent stable GIT) to imageforensic.com publicly available service
It looks like some numbers were translated to more easily understandable text on the public site version. So the take-home version gives you a more raw data. Might be able to make it more easily understandable though like the imageforensic.com site, will have to look into that
Some of the other features of Ghiro look neat too, like thumbnail consistency, but I haven’t found an image that triggers that functionality yet. Not sure if it only works with embedded thumbnails or if you can upload seperate full size and thumb to the same case and it detects it’s a thumb and looks for consistency.
Firefox also has a useful addon for viewing image metadata. You can right click on most images right on the news website and view metadata (assuming it wasn’t scrubbed)

A discussion on the utility of ELA is probably in order at some point.
I’ve tested it so many time with known fake (faked myself) and known real photos and I just don’t think ELA adds much.
I’m not even sure ELA could do ANYTHING if the photographer took a photo in RAW, then edited, then exported to jpg. I think it only works when somebody started with a compressed jpg, then edited, then saved again as a jpg. Most news agencies, if interested in editing photos without being caught, would simply start with the RAW uncompressed photo and edit from there. I’m not 100% sure but most of the time when I see ELA being used to prove something I don’t think the user really understands what it is (and neither do I). ELA has limited usefulness but metadata and other aspects of image forensics can of course be very useful
I just noticed that in the post about the meditation retreat that it does not say Matt Lyzen in the excerpt but “Becky Lyzen (and her angel Mark)”. I had read it as Matthew (in my head). So the post seems to be about his mother but not necessarily about him. I don’t know who Mark is and a Googling does not seem to turn up anybody with the name Mark Lyzen
