I mean, you go through this thing, the guy, because he dares to have a show on RT–and you know, and they couldn’t get anything on Lee Camp, other than that he’s funny; they did admit that he’s very funny.
For the past four years, Camp has hosted “Redacted Tonight” on Russia Today—a comedy show that explores the all-too-familiar ills of American empire: unchecked militarism, Wall Street greed and, perhaps most importantly, the propaganda of our political press.
When Tate Modern built a viewing platform that allowed crowds to stare directly into the luxury flats next door - some even using binoculars to get a better look - the homeowners were horrified by the invasion of privacy.
The five claimants say the platform “unreasonably interferes with their use of their flats” and that Tate is “committing a nuisance”.
Tom Weekes QC, for the claimants, said the Tate was “operating a public viewing platform so as to encourage (hundreds of thousands of) visitors” to look into his clients’ homes and that its “invasion of the claimants’ privacy is relentless”.
And you know, the hilarious thing is that RT was the first media outlet, RT America, to be forced to sign up as foreign agents or whatever.
Flat owners take Tate Modern to court over invasion of privacy
Fetherstonehaugh said the platform “affords visitors and staff a unique, free, 360-degree view of London” which is “part of an overall experience designed to engage people with the arts” and that any interference with the claimants from it was limited.
In the latest episode of “Scheer Intelligence,” the comedian explores the legacies of Richard Pryor and George Carlin, as well as Lenny Bruce, big tech’s capacity to strangle independent media and the freedom of working for a network like RT America.
The claim was made in the High Court in London, where leaseholders of four flats in the Neo Bankside development are seeking an injunction requiring the museum to cordon off parts of the platform or erect screening that prevents “hundreds of thousands” of people from gazing into their homes.
He said: “The claimants’ case really amounts to saying that the defendant should end the amenity of a substantial part of the viewing platform, and thereby deny the 360-degree view of London and the surrounding area to millions of people, purely to enshrine for the claimants an ability to enjoy their view entirely privately.”
Residents of London flats overlooked by the Tate Modern have gone to the high court in an effort to stop “hundreds of thousands of visitors” looking into their homes from the art gallery’s viewing platform.
But the Board of Trustees of the Tate Gallery, which is defending the claim, argued that “the claimants' obvious remedy for being overlooked is to draw the blinds provided in their flats and, as necessary, to put up curtains".
I mean, there was a lot of problems with Trump, but the idea that he’s a stooge of Putin–if there was a foreign government that interfered in our election, it was Israel.
People living in central London baffled to discover other people nearby. You might as well complain about the countryside smelling of cow poo.
At a hearing in London on Friday, Mr Justice Mann was told that “the only satisfactory solution to a problem arising from visitors to the viewing platform engaging in ‘viewing’ towards and into the claimants’ home is to prevent visitors from doing so”.
