Say you're a top political figure in a government, say the USA, would you know disinformation when you see it? It's my firm belief that many of the plots are so convoluted that it makes it nearly impossible to tell which is real and which is fake.
Now, if I was in such a regime and had such a particular interest to pay attention to such conspiracy websites, I would look upon so many websites and laugh to myself based upon the topics and replies. I would see a few that hit the nail on the head but have a vast majority looking upon the posts and replying "No proof - didn't happen."
Or would I wonder why the public is so stupid?
It's my personal opinion that a select few are right on, but have little or no support in their beliefs by majority of contributors to those posts. Which is entirely understandable; however; it's a bit disheartening because I know that if I was a government official, I would do everything in my power to make the true stories so impossibly convoluted that they would have little support.
