I can't imagine any other method than the shotgun approach.
The first step I would take would be to ban the video from Youtube if it wouldn't look suspicious. I'd work with Youtube to keep the view count
arbitrarily low. Repeat that process on Google video. Obviously users with a not too many friends would be an easier target.
One team of people would work out reasons the video would be fake, while another team of people would work out any and every reason the author of the
video is not credible. On internet sites like ATS, multiple personalities would already be in place to add their comments. Some of them would simply
participate in other forums to pretend to believe pretty much anything. Then for this video they would suddenly disbelieve it rather than just
believing. Other team members could be be known as regular debunkers. None of them would be new to the site ideally, and definitely never more than
two of them would be new or that would just look suspicious.
You wouldn't be able to tell they were disinfo agents because they would be posting their regular old opinions (though exaggerated to reach certain
conclusions) in most cases because that would be all that would be necessary to establish credibility. Certain members may even be designed to be top
contributors and well respected.
Another team may be assigned to post a bunch of stupid, offensive, and off-topic replies so that people lose interest in the topic. They might provoke
others to the degree they can. Of course people tend to naturally do that anyway in a topic which is emotional, so it would only be necessary some of
So that is about five tactics I could think of and I imagine there are probably at least a couple more I didn't even think of.
