CrowdTangle utterly failed to limit the very worst purveyors of false information.....the legacy media outlets and major political parties.

CrowdTangle utterly failed to limit the very worst purveyors of false information.....the legacy media outlets and major political parties.

Russia, Russia, Russia!

Russia actually uses its troll army for disinformation. The legacy media and US political parties do not. Well, maybe the MAGA party does.

What an absolutely disgraceful move: everyone needs to be in the business of removing disinformation from the internet, not just those META approves.

The Russians and Chinese operate websites in America meant to sway right wing voters into voting for trump. This isn’t in dispute.

Russia already admitted --something that many people has suspected for years-- of running a troll factory, the so-called "Internet Research Agency" (IRA)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Research_Agency

In February 2023, Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the private military company Wagner Group, stated that he founded the IRA: "I’ve never just been the financier of the Internet Research Agency. I invented it, I created it, I managed it for a long time." The admission came months after Prigozhin had admitted to Russian interference in U.S. elections.

That fact is no longer in dispute. It's clear as day

So next time somebody whines "Russia! Russia! Russia!", remember this fact about Russia's admission of guilt
