@acarvin I've noticed that the biggest proponents of admitting biases are libertarians. Reason Mag contributors write who they voted for.

@acarvin Any chance we'll get you to bare your biases about what you cover?

@smithsj As long as I'm in my current job? Doubtful.

@acarvin If you could stay at NPR & still tell us, would you even want to? Or do you prefer being restrained from it?

@smithsj: I've never been much a believer in the view-from-nowhere perspective. One can still be fair while being more transparent.

@smithsj the funny thing is I use to do telecom policy advocacy work before taking this job, and it's all part of the public record.

@acarvin I lost you there...what's part of the public record? NPR reporters' politics?

@smithsj No, I mean if you looked up my work pre-2006, it's not hard to learn about my perspectives on a variety of things.

Stephen Smith @smithsj

@acarvin Ah. Yeah, I can guess your general politics, but I was thinking more about what you're covering now

@smithsj Point is, media ethics still needs to reconcile how to deal with staff that haven't always been in journalism.

Stephen Smith @smithsj

@acarvin I mean, obviously you're anti-Syria and anti-Gaddafi, for example, but I'd be interested to hear your opinions on, e.g., Bahrain

@smithsj There are some things that seem like givens, like free speech/press/assembly are good, oppression/dictatorships bad...

Andy Carvin @acarvin

@smithsj but I'm not in a position to offer opinions on policies/strategies for dealing with these issues.

Andy Carvin @acarvin

@smithsj Basically, I believe journalism exists to hold power to account.

Andy Carvin @acarvin

@smithsj though the reason I got into it is because I believe media literacy can empower citizens so they too can hold power to account.

Up now, @techsoc - Zeynep Tufekci on her research on #jan25 activists. #AUSACE2011

.@techsoc: wanted to know why MENA regimes began to fall in 2011 and not in prior years. They were unpopular & unsuccessful. #AUSACE2011

Andy Carvin @acarvin

.@techsoc: regimes create a collective action problem to stay in power. People may want to act, but repression=chilling effect. #AUSACE2011

Andy Carvin @acarvin

.@techsoc: when a regime punishes the first person who tries to take action, others will be less likely to do so. #AUSACE2011

Andy Carvin @acarvin

.@techsoc: If punishment is high and communication is limited, collective activism is difficult. #AUSACE2011

Andy Carvin @acarvin

.@techsoc: dictatorships use censorship, restrict organizing, place a high cost on dissent - torture, jail, etc. #AUSACE2011
