On March 16th, 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a much-hyped, much-cited new report on “Foreign Threats to the 2020 Elections.” The key conclusion:
We assess that Russian President Putin authorized, and a range of Russian government organizations conducted, influence operations aimed at denigrating President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party, supporting former President Trump, [and] undermining public confidence in the electoral process…
The report added Ukrainian legislator Andrey Derkach, described as having “ties” to “Russia’s intelligence services,” and Konstantin Kilimnik, a “Russian influence agent” (whatever that means), used “prominent U.S. persons” and “media conduits” to “launder their narratives” to American audiences. The “narratives” included “misleading or unsubstantiated allegations against President Biden” (note they didn’t use the word “false”). They added a small caveat at the end: “Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.”
Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.
Judgments? Remember when 'news' used to be about reporting?
Read through that article and see how much disinformation have you been fed over the last few years. Ask yourself if you truly believe that any involved in modern, *corporate*, mainstream media has the ability, the wherewithal or anything remotely resembling the *integrity* needed to assess what is fact, what is fiction and whether what some political hack tells them is either. Would they know that someone in 'intelligence' is a political hack? Would the said 'journalist' be interested in furthering a narrative from a fellow political hack? Is it appropriate Gannett Co., Inc.'s USA Today is doing 'fact checking' for Facebook, Inc.?
Anonymous sources close to the matter say... (or rather they won't. At least you'll be hearing nothing about it if they do)
I'd specifically like to know where all this over-the-top anti-Russian sentiment comes from. Not saying Russia deserves a free pass, but they also don't deserve all the lies that have been aired/published/spoken about them by American corporate news over the past few years (again, the article). Also, if you consume 'news' for judgments, go to your nearest mirror and stare, you'll find a retard staring back at you.
