New website tracking “Russian-backed propaganda” on Twitter lists Fox, Frontpage & Zerohedge as fellow travelers

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A website launched on Wednesday seeks to track Russian-supported propaganda and disinformation on Twitter, part of a growing non-governmental effort to diminish Moscow’s ability to meddle in future elections in the United States and Europe.

The “Hamilton 68” dashboard (here) was built by researchers working with the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a bipartisan, transatlantic project set up last month to counter Russian disinformation campaigns.

The website, supported by the German Marshall Fund, displays a “near real-time” analysis of English-language tweets from a pool of 600 Twitter accounts that analysts identified as users that spread Russian propaganda.

    Anyone and any site providing the truth about open borders, Islam, jihad, the islamisation of the West, and supporting freedom of speech and the American president is Russian backed propaganda according to the anti-freedom totalitarians. The only ones spreading pure propaganda including complete lies are the leftists, and they are doing it in a way that would have made both Hitler and Stalin proud.

    • There seems to be a pattern.

      And that’s why they have no credibility whatsoever. There are still many people that can put 2+2 together and still get 4, and that drives these asses mad.

    Heh, they keep using the word democracy, but I do not think they know what it means… Filthy neo-marxists chomping at the bit to kill millions of the opposition just like in the good old days of stalin and mao (may they burn in hell for eternity).

    Soooo

    And Fox, like TIME as I mention in a thread above, hasn’t been conservative in a long, long time either. They’ve got a few opinion “columnists” who are pro-Trump but not the network or the “straight” news reporting (if you can use that descriptor for anything having to do with Shep Smith).

    Well… they may have a valid point about Zerohedge. Not so much the others.

    That Twitter has such an impact on people’s political opinions and is apparently such a major player in influencing elections is depressing in itself. Have we really reached the point where 140 characters is the limit of people’s attention span?
