Why not Sam Spade?

    Or maybe that's what happened to Larry Gude - he needed a job; Russians needed someone to spew leftwing discontent?
    Because "she" was trained to say highly controversial things that would get "her" the attention and strong reaction these media sources crave to keep their readers in firstling at the mouth. She also had a following of bots which increased her presence and made it seem as though she had more followers and influence than she actually did.

    a thin narrative ...... a person no one here has heard of has 'influence' on the election
    like all those views the 'fake news' on Facebook Garnered

    and yeah how about all those progressive sites publishing Jennifer's Stories
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Very good :patpat: Now go back and read the list of media sources that propagated "her" tweets and posts.

    There was no insult, nor was I lashing out. If you think I was, you need to go play with your dolls and not interrupt while the grownups are talking.

    PS, ^that^ is what an insult looks like.

    Probably some sort of weird transgender thing.

    Did you not see Breitbart and Fox on that list?

    and how is reaching 126 million people via Facebook a trivial amount of views?

    You really are trash. Shown proof that Russia was trying to influence the election you would rather insult the messenger then discuss the actual issue. Keep your head in the sand. No wonder you think Trump is doing a good job if you just ignore all evidence.
