Yes. So why would anyone pay someone to debunk this stuff? When all it does is sit on the fringes of the internet?
you guys are missing the point. No one on this site is "important" enough to warrant paying someone to come discredit them. This isn't how that
works, yes, the whole sock puppet deal, but that's about commenting on sites that normal people view, not conspiracy related fringe sites. sock
puppets can be blamed for comments and twitter twats that you might see on MSM sites and such, not fringe already out there on the edge sites.
Actual "paid disinfo agents" don't come here either, those people are the ones writing the blogs and articles people link to here. I'm sorry to burst
your bubble, but ATS simply isn't that important, we do discuss a ton of stories, but nothing BREAKS here.
Disinfo works by throwing out BS stories, not BS comments at some random thread maybe 15000 people will read, maybe.
Anyways, someone else nailed it, usually when someone calls you that, it's because our view or opinion differs from theirs. I'm a debunker for the
most part so I've worn that label daily around here, you just get used to it.
Until quasi main stream sites are linked to articles written here at ATS, you can sleep sound.
Anyways, here's an example, and I'll use 911 cause that will make Hoopers day.
does a "disinfo agent" come here and comment, posting links to the NIST report? No, they write blogs citing questionable studies, or simply link 911
truth with nazis or one of the other tricks. That's how it works. They aren't here to convince you of the story, they are mostly there to discredit
Want to see a true disinfo agent at work? Jason Bermas, Alex Jones, David Icke. the joke is, though, they aren't getting paid to do it, and probably
don't even understand they are doing it.
Now when you are talking main stream sites, like msn or nbc.com or something like that, you can pick out the "sock puppets" quite clearly. There is a
vast difference between them, and the people who disagree with you here.
How does disinfo work? Step in the way back machine and go read every article you can that was printed about Iraq before the invasion. THAT, my
friends, is disinformation, and a text book example of how it's done, talking points, distributed to the right talking heads, blogs, magazines, radio
hosts and they repeat it, and repeat it, and repeat it.
The entire media is a disinfo campaign and ATS just isn't that important, at all, infact, ATS is great for "them" because it's awful hard to break
stories or make a difference when you spend most of your free time bickering on a site like this.
