For the better part of the last 8 months, We The People have been inundated with a number of phony narratives as to why Donald Trump shouldn’t, couldn’t, or wouldn’t be President of these United States.
The only problem is that every single one of these claims has turned out to be patently false, no matter how fervent the liberal left has been in their dissemination of the faulty claims. The latest data being hacked together into something incriminating has to do with the idea of Russian internet “bots” working to propagate “fake news” via Twitter that somehow behooves the President. The firm in charge of tracking that sort of data, The Alliance for Securing Democracy, has been hard at work attempting to untangle the bizarre web of deceit employed by the Russians within the American political system.
Unfortunately, even though the organization is doing a fantastic job unraveling this convoluted bit of chicanery, the mainstream media is apparently misinterpreting their data with the sole purpose of disparaging the President. Due to this liberal scam, The Alliance for Securing Democracy has been forced to issue a massive statement regarding the bias.
Several mainstream media outlets, including CNN and The Washington Post, have published misleading stories about Russian bots boosting conservative issues across social media, according to a detailed report by The Daily Caller.
The Alliance for Securing Democracy’s Hamilton 68 dashboard is a service that aims to display data about Russian propaganda efforts. It is often used by news organizations seeking to pin support for conservative media, conspiracy theories and right-leaning views on Russian bots, but the group’s communication’s director, Bret Schafer, says most reporting on the dashboard is “inherently inaccurate.”
Just how patently absurd is the data manipulation?
Daily Caller found several examples of inaccurate reporting, including a Business Insiderarticle originally headlined, “Russian bots are rallying behind embattled Fox News host Laura Ingraham as advertisers dump her show.” The inaccurate story resulted in a Washington Post story, citing Business Insider, headlined “Russian bots are tweeting their support of embattled Fox News host Laura Ingraham.”
The truth is that nobody has any idea if the social media accounts tweeting support for Ingraham were actually bots. Business Insider eventually corrected its story, but it had already been viewed by more than 100,000 people – most of whom, presumably, won’t ever see the correction.
This means that, despite the massive tidal wave of blame that the mainstream media is putting on the Russian “bots”, these internet urban legends are far from the democracy killers that CNN and others have made them out to be.
Again, the Russia-Trump collision narrative has fallen apart. Perhaps this is why Special Counsel Robert Mueller has moved on from Kremlin-based inquiries and is now raking muck with his latest peek at a thoroughly denied, decades-old claim of an affair between then-private citizen Trump and adult actress and possible cocaine enthusiast Stormy Daniels.
