LOL! We Just Found Out We’re A RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA SITE

The left’s latest attempt to discredit those with whom they disagree is by labeling news they don’t like as fake. The Washington Post has written a story about this. They cite an unknown website called propornot.com which has created a list of “fake news” sites which are part of a Russian conspiracy and we’re on the list.

They must have missed the fact that we use sources like The Hill, The Washington Examiner, CNS News and many other reliable outlets.

From The Washington Post:

Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say

The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation.

Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia…

PropOrNot’s monitoring report, which was provided to The Washington Post in advance of its public release, identifies more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season, with combined audiences of at least 15 million Americans. On Facebook, PropOrNot estimates that stories planted or promoted by the disinformation campaign were viewed more than 213 million times.

Glenn Greenwald has been calling out the Washington Post and Propornot over this foolishness on Twitter:

We’ll try to get to the bottom of this conspiracy as quickly as possible, folks.

Once we’ve rooted out the secret Russian agent on our writing staff, we’ll file a report right away.
