    The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President

    People not in the cult know that "fake news" generally means news the cult doesn't like. In reality, the cult thrives on actual fake news.

    One day last fall, I sat down to create a new Facebook account. I picked a forgettable name, snapped a profile pic with my face obscured, and clicked “Like” on the official pages of Donald Trump and his reelection campaign. Facebook’s algorithm prodded me to follow Ann Coulter, Fox Business, and a variety of fan pages with names like “In Trump We Trust.” I complied. I also gave my cellphone number to the Trump campaign, and joined a handful of private Facebook groups for MAGA diehards, one of which required an application that seemed designed to screen out interlopers.
    The president’s reelection campaign was then in the midst of a multimillion-dollar ad blitz aimed at shaping Americans’ understanding of the recently launched impeachment proceedings. Thousands of micro-targeted ads had flooded the internet, portraying Trump as a heroic reformer cracking down on foreign corruption while Democrats plotted a coup. That this narrative bore little resemblance to reality seemed only to accelerate its spread. Right-wing websites amplified every claim. Pro-Trump forums teemed with conspiracy theories. An alternate information ecosystem was taking shape around the biggest news story in the country, and I wanted to see it from the inside.
    As I swiped at my phone, a stream of pro-Trump propaganda filled the screen: “That’s right, the whistleblower’s own lawyer said, ‘The coup has started …’ ” Swipe. “Democrats are doing Putin’s bidding …” Swipe. “The only message these radical socialists and extremists will understand is a crushing …” Swipe. “Only one man can stop this chaos …” Swipe, swipe, swipe.

    I was surprised by the effect it had on me. I’d assumed that my skepticism and media literacy would inoculate me against such distortions. But I soon found myself reflexively questioning every headline. It wasn’t that I believed Trump and his boosters were telling the truth. It was that, in this state of heightened suspicion, truth itself—about Ukraine, impeachment, or anything else—felt more and more difficult to locate. With each swipe, the notion of observable reality drifted further out of reach.
    some of the cultists in here are stuck in the cesspool of pro-trump propaganda generated by targeting like this.

    The Trump campaign is planning to spend more than $1 billion, and it will be aided by a vast coalition of partisan media, outside political groups, and enterprising freelance operatives. These pro-Trump forces are poised to wage what could be the most extensive disinformation campaign in U.S. history. Whether or not it succeeds in reelecting the president, the wreckage it leaves behind could be irreparable.

    I don't think they even remotely understand how weird it is that the entire left can be defined as a cult yet its the one thing they choose to call everyone else.

    They're not too bright anyway.

    They can't even argue in the R/P without seeing what the media thinks about it first. Whenever something breaks that hasn't been given talking points there's a 3-5 hour lead time before they enter threads.

    Cry me a fukking river. Talking about a vast coalition of partisan media, while the MSM has been attacking Trump nonstop since before he even took office, how can anyone have such a lack of self-awareness?

    how do you think a media with integrity should have reacted to trump?

    We know the pro-trump partisan media reacts favorably no matter what. Is that what you expect from media outlets that have their reputation to care about? Or should it be that if, he lies, they should say he lied? It did take some time for them to start calling his lies "lies", so... is that what you would expect? Some caution/delay before calling out the lie?

    You seem to be oblivious or ignorant to how social media companies target news and ads to their customers. You would 100% have a similar targeted outcome if your profile was "I love Hillary" or even "I love Kanye". You would naive to believe otherwise.

    Your ads and news is 100% based on the content you click.

    most of the outlets you guys consider left wing are corporate outlets trying to make money. They all hire right wing hosts and bring on right wing guests as well as left. Some of their hosts you guys hate were on republican campaigns.

    What i really want to say tho is ... 95%? if thats the type of crap you pull out of your butt you might want to go see a doctor.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/thes...america-2012-6

    actually, if I try to think like a trump cultist then I guess I might understand where you're coming from. Any outlet not shilling for trump is left wing and biased to you. even if its owned by corporations who want tax cuts and deregulation. By default, all respectable outlets are left wing and biased because they won't fall in line. Just as Mitt Romney became a liberal overnight

    I'm not sure I see the problem with this ?is the idiot that wrote the article complaining that their phone showed them things that an algorithm determined they'd probably enjoy? If i would make a dummy account and login to Facebook like a few left leaning pages the EXACT same thing would happen. Hell if you have Android half of the stuff you see is probably left leaning anyway.

    i don't think the issue is where its from ideologically. Its the content. i.e. disinformation. it can be right leaning or left leaning and accurate. The content being misleading is why one can say there is a campaign to put out this information through the targeting that facebook et al enable. Its like a conman finding the perfect mark based on their data
    Is there no limit to what people will believe if it is prefaced by the phrase,
    "Scientists say" ?

    When we refer to fake news, we mean the news that had the unredacted carter Page fisa warrant for 2 years... yet still pumped out fake story after fake story, attacked nunes for accurately writing an accurate memo about the fisa warrants contents, and did everything in their power not to cover the corruption that went into spying on trump and launching the Russia campaign.

    It’s like having the directions but lying to others about what they say, simply to hide corruption and project it into an innocent person.

    2 accurate because it was a BS memo? Nunes is dirty

    Anyway, is carter page your angle for "spying on the trump campaign"? or is there another source for this claim?

    Carter Page was just a doorway into the campaign. From there can hop twice to anyone else in the campaign.

    Hilarious that the infanticide-worshiping cult that is the left actually has the nerve to complain about media bias. The media worshiped at the feet of Obama who wantonly bombed everything that moved including American citizens and weddings, ran guns to cartels who murdered Americans, and basically wiped his ass with the Constitution. Now you want to talk about media bias? Miss me with that chit.

    It’s about the changing means of distributing propaganda. How technology is affecting elections.

    You couldn’t hypertarget audiences before, now you can. It’s basically about how campaigns are using advanced digital marketing techniques. Its using Trump’s campaign to tell the story because they are particularly good at it.

    Someone probably wrote an article about FDR using radio and JFK using TV. Same idea.

    Trump's campaign... didn't they give their polling info to the Russians in 2016?

    you see misleading **** get posted here all the time, people eat it up and move on. who knows if it actually leaves a lasting impression but it is kind of funny to see the lack of critical thought regarding something they would like to agree with compared to the intense scrutiny that anything anti Trump gets.

    Yes, between Manafort and social media scraping, Russia had all the information that they'd ever need to generate targeted propaganda. And there's no reason to believe all that data is now invalid and useless. The Russians will be able to mine this for years to come.


    ETA: FWIW - the Russians, Chinese, and just about anyone who wants can buy voter roll information and can get polling data if they want to.

    Alabama publishes the voter rolls in the local papers every election cycle. These include every registered voter and party affiliation. Voter information and polling data are not national secrets.
