We should go fishing with our shirt off and then wrestle a bear.

It makes sense. They say the devil has many faces.

Bollocks. Bots in the flesh everywhere.


Bradshaw said that while Russia and authoritarian regimes get most of the attention for manipulating social media, Western democracies have been using similar techniques. In the U.K., the British Army created the 77th Brigade in 2015, in part for psychological operations using social media. Bradshaw said democratic governments aren't forthcoming about their digital propaganda efforts.

"They are using the same tools and techniques as the authoritarian regimes," she said. "Maybe the motivations are different, but it's hard to tell without the transparency."

His tweets? Biggest lie currently being promoted. If not his tweets, it would be something else. He uses the tweets and the left's reactions to them to his advantage.

Those tweets will the vessel for the third party. It's coming......

Once again you demonstrate that you do not understand how journalism works. CNN trod the digital pavement, they have the privilege of asserting the claim. They are the ones making the allegation. They lay out the path they took. You can retrace it in an attempt to disprove their conclusions if you want, but you cannot reject the allegations without doing some work of your own.


And there's the whole problem.

CNN has lost all credibility.

Because conservatives don't use nuspeak, only SJWs, BLMs, libtards....


Its funny you dont deny your liberal horde doesnt use nuspeak.

Your deflection there is irrlevant as I'm not actually a conservative. If I were and 'we' did I'd call it out.

Anyways, I've yet to note conservatives make brazen attempts to re-define re-write the english language.

While we all know thats the nu-liberal platform.

Seriously, after I had tuned out of all this kind of drama for 5 years (just as that was firing up), I was totally blown away by coming to realize it all suddenly because of how far gone it already was by last summer.

Real Hallowwen type sheeit.

Don'you think at the end of the day, this will look like the typical ploy, never let a crisis go to waste, even if its something of a manufactured crisis and at the moment we are at the stage where we're waiting for the proferred freedom busting solution, whether its in the form of more stricter vetting requirements to ensure proper censorship and/or new requirement for internet user I.D. to abolish anonymity on the net?

Sadly, I suspect that before I shuffle off my mortal coil, the "Internet" will have become a one sided echo chamber wheere news and information is tightly screened and controled. Its already the case with the printed press, the air waves, and cable outlets.

You're the one who brought BLM into the conversation. Right there on page one. No one mentions BLM before that.

Am I the only one who noticed that this thread was immediately jumped upon by a half dozen members ridiculing the idea that the Russians are waging internet media warfare, and that these posts instantly received a lot of stars... even though it is only five o'clock in the morning in the United States?

Some of the most vocal American right-wing supporters on this site aren't even American.

Go figure.

MSMBS's Big Hot Story this week is this 'IRA' Russian troll whatever network, and the BLM ChinPokemon is the cherry on top.

So I used insights gained from mucking through that realm of the scene to illustrate broader potential ways of looking at the Big Picture of it all.

And along came the horde to twist that into a left/right pissing match, complete with twisted words, baloney rehashes and even all out lies to derail my purpose herein.

Russian cyber operations, now well known for their role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, have also been used to exert influence to achieve policy objectives in Europe.

The 2007 DDoS attack on Estonia brought attention to large-scale attacks but network probing and small-scale hacks sometimes go unnoticed.
DNC-style hacks have targeted European political figures and institutions in Germany (2015), Lithuania (2016), Norway (2017), France (2017), and Montenegro (2017).

Nongovernment actors have also been targeted: in 2015 France’s TV5Monde was taken off the air, and in 2016 World Anti-Doping Agency data was stolen.

Crucially, critical infrastructure remains vulnerable, as evidenced by attacks on Ukraine’s power grid in 2015 and 2016.

There is also a fake news tracking data base:



This database represents a collection of all disinformation cases as they were reported by the East Stratcom Task Force’s network of contributors in the course of the Disinformation Review project.

Since the launch of the Disinformation Review in 2015, the database has grown into thousands of individual cases of disinformation, so you can use the search function below to get an overview of the content.

You can search for disinformation cases from a pre-defined period of time, in a particular language, from a particular source, or containing the keyword of your interest.

No it isn't. Sorry but I watch MSNBC ( you made an error in your call letters) every day and I've never heard this piece of news.
And your insights gained from mucking about... that just means you have nothing but your own opinion to support your story.
You can't fool me with, "This is a fact and this is a fact and because my opinion seems to fit my opinion becomes fact too" because I'm wasn't born yesterday.
