Re: <nettime> #jakegate explained ... by a Dummy


The saga continues:

From http://www.newsweek.com/wikileaks-attorneys-blast-citizenfour-maker-poitras-610362 :

The Cannes premiere of Risk portrayed Appelbaum in a flattering light
and Poitras did not disclose the nature of their relationship at that
time. Now Poitras states, “I thought I could ignore the contradictions.
I thought they were not part of the story. I was so wrong. They’re
becoming the story.” But if sexism is becoming the story, it is because
Poitras has chosen to focus on it.
...
Instead of a documentary about the abuse of state power and WikiLeaks'
important role in exposing it, the emphasis of the film is now to
highlight hotly disputed claims about an ex-boyfriend.

In mathematics, this phenomenon is called "a complete graph".
