It appears there’s been a witch hunt against conservative and right-leaning new sites—all thanks to the FBI. It’s being reported the FBI was trying to find out if legitimate, news organizations took action in assisting Russian bots that had pro-Trump “fake stories” go viral on social media throughout the recent election. It’s said the bots aided in getting Trump elected. Apparently, right-wing news is considered fake to the corrupt agency—even though it’s highly trusted and the most accurate.
The FBI is as delusional as the mainstream media if they are considering American people too oblivious to not see through left-wing propaganda that appears in major-news outlets. They should also take note Americans aren’t stupid enough to confuse Russian “fake news” propaganda with reality.
Specific websites named as part of the “probe” are Breitbart and Infowars—there are most likely dozens of media outlets under the FBI’s investigation. It would make sense that every organization identified as part of The Washington Post‘s “Russian Propaganda” list may have been under the agency’s microscope. The list was of course comprised of credible, news sources the left just happens to disagree with. Seeing the error of their original story, The Post eventually updated the story, claiming it was inaccurate.
The FBI claims a massive Russian-controlled propaganda machine was pumping out false pro-Trump news, timed to specifically go out when the news was bashing him—all to cover up negative stories. With the overwhelming amount of one-sided anti-Trump news in the mainstream media throughout the election, it’s beyond ridiculous to think the FBI’s idea of fake, Russian news would affect the 2016, presidential campaigns.
“Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook.
The investigation of the bot-engineered traffic, which appears to be in its early stages, is being driven by the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, whose inquiries rarely result in criminal charges and whose main task has been to reconstruct the nature of the Kremlin’s cyber attack and determine ways to prevent another.”
Are Americans getting wise to the FBI being fearful of conservative news? The United States is slowly but surely seeing the end of liberal-agenda-driven news causing citizens to take propaganda in as “fact.” Corrupt agencies are running scared. The right-wing media is known for being the most accurate, and it’s a threat to those who want to control the narrative.
