Democrats and the media have spent the last several years accusing countless people of pushing misinformation and conspiracy theories.
But apparently, it’s different when they do it.
Duting a recent phone call with social media influencers, Jen Psaki said the 2016 election was “hacked” by Russia.
That is absolutely not true. You might even call it a conspiracy theory.
Psaki Pushes False Claim 2016 Election Was ‘Hacked’ in Briefing With TikTok Influencers
About 20 minutes into the call, Psaki told her youthful audience:
We recognize how important your platforms are, and how important it is to provide as much accurate information as possible to all the people who are using their voices and their platforms to project accurate information. Because the best antidote to disinformation is the truth. One of the big steps we’ve taken, and made a deciosn to take is to declassify inofrmaton over the course of the last several months.
Psaki added: “If you look back at 2014, and frankly even 2016, when Russia invaded Ukraine and then in 2016, when they, you know, of course, hacked our election here, we did not do that. Right? We did not declassify information.”
Psaki went on to state that the U.S. is now declassifying information, which will presumably make it challenging for Russian disinformation to go unchallenged.
Will Jen Psaki be pushed off social media for spreading disinformation?

Democrats. It’s different when we do it.
