They have a facebook pressence (I'm not on facebook) anyone care to go and have a look?
It would be nice to see who these chaps are.
We use a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) and then confirm an outlet as Russian propaganda. Our volunteers have developed a suite of software tools, leveraging publicly available data and commercial services, in order to perform automated analysis, but everything we do is in principle replicable using manual searching and data entry.
We initially red-flag a new site based on content-based criteria like those outlined above. Does it:
Consistently cite official state-owned and semi-official Russian propaganda outlets?
Consistently reuse text directly from official state-owned and semi-official Russian propaganda outlets?
Have a history of generally echoing the Russian propaganda "line", especially in ways unrelated to the purported focus of their branding, and in sequence with other Russian propaganda outlets?
Has it been called out by other fact-checkers, researchers, journalists, and debunkers for posting fake news?
From there we use our software tools to fill in the blanks, collecting a wide range of data about the new target site, and seeing how it fits into the existing network of previously red-flagged and identified outlets. We have built out a significant network of websites, and every time we feel confidant that we have discovered most of them, we keep finding more.
In the process of doing this, we have also identified a significant set of YouTube channels, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, etc, which are acting as part of the same larger Russian influence operation.
