You're Being Politically Trolled Every Day And You Don't Even Know It

So many stories about other countries using our media to manipulate our people makes me think about other countries publishing stories about our own media… manipulating our own population. Al Jazeera released a piece during the BP Oil Spill eluding to the great possibility of world marketing agency Ogilvy and Mather getting paid by BP to harass forum commenters and outspoken scientists who had dissenting points of views to, and damning facts against, the Deep Horizon spill.
But I’m not going to discredit what games other countries like Russia might still be playing in our country. It’s almost like the Cold War never ended, or something. The New York Times released an in depth piece about a Russian government agency hired to create fake news stories about U.S. disasters and to post venomous comments on real American stories with an intent to incite distrust amongst its own citizens.
It's a information wild west out there, folks. Stay safe!
