A look inside a Russian ‘troll factory’
Corporate media going into overdrive producing propaganda at a record rate. So, apparently, they expect us to believe that while our NSA and CIA trolls work in highly secured government buildings, that supposed Russian trolls work in poorly guarded office buildings? BTW, I saw that exact same video clip supposedly filmed inside the troll factory several months ago and I'm pretty sure it was filmed in Ukraine and not Russia.

Trump links Russia probe to Florida shooting
Trump is not what I'd call a smart guy, but I have to agree with him on this one. The scary thing is that he might be smarter than most of the nitwits serving as elected officials in our nation's capital!

US meddled in foreign votes 'for good cause' - former CIA director
You don't get to have it both ways! There is no doubt at all that the USA has been meddling in foreign elections for close to a century. On top of that we've been assassinating leaders, setting off coups, and engaging in information warfare for just as long and at a rate far greater than any other country on the planet. It's more than a little hypocritical to complain when other countries do it to us. All that being said, the evidence that Russia in particular hacked our election or tried to influence voters is pretty sparse. There's a difference between sharing information and information warfare. Our corporate media is engaging in information warfare on the people of the USA. They distort, fabricate, and withhold critical information on a daily basis in order to shape opinion. Russia and other countries may have interfered with the smooth operation of the corporate propaganda machine, but that's actually a very, very good thing.

If Mrs. Clinton had won chances are we would not have this much BS about the Russians or whatever the bitch is about Weinstein and his type.

Did Russian Trolls Hand Trump The Election?
Nothing of substance new here that we didn't know back in October 2016. Some new details, but we already knew claims about Russian hackers/trolls were bogus.

Russia Is Far From the Only Country Influencing U.S. Elections
Anyone with half a brain who has been paying any attention at all knows that this has been going on for a long time, which is just one of the reasons why this whole Russian influence propaganda campaign seemed so bizarre even back in 2016 when this thread was first initiated.

Putin concludes 'no price to pay’ for Russia cyber attacks, says NSA chief
This is just stupid. Why can't we get leaders who aren't total idiots? If other countries are hacking our information systems and infrastructure, then we need to improve our security. We might also consider the possibility of not hacking them. We are the world leader when it comes to hacking and espionage and so it's pure hypocrisy to be whining the way these two half-wits are whining!

mrgreen hit it on the head. No other country is doing anything different than what the US has and is doing every single day. It is time to move on and fix the roads,power grid,bridges,canals,flood control and sealing the borders.

FINALLY Russian troll bots reveal themselves!
Anyone who voices an opinion questioning the corporate media narrative is assumed to be a Russian bot.

desertrat: Instead of actually challenging the assertions made by someone who presents ideas that you find threatening, it's easier to insult them and question their motives. I believe that's a logical fallacy known as an ad hominem. It's a weak-minded way of attempting to undermine an argument and tends to only persuade people of low intelligence.
