Wow! Far Left Cranks who Wrote Junk Senate ‘Russia Interference’ Report – Are Same Hacks That Ran ‘Russia Inspired’ Smear Campaign Against Roy Moore

Democrats ran a smear campaign against Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race in 2017 and Facebook allowed it.
Democrat activists took what Russia did on a minute scale in the 2016 election and ramped it up times one thousand.
PLEASE NOTE: Russia’s 2016 disinformation campaign targeted both pro-Trump and pro-Hillary supporters. The liberal mainstream media does not like to mention this in their reporting. Russia spent just $6,000 in the last six weeks of the 2016 election on ads. Russia spent only $4,600 on Google ads in the 2016 campaign. The Russian influence in the 2016 election was minimal and is one of the biggest lies by the left this century.
Democrats took this “Russian model” and ramped it up — times a million!
Facebook allowed this to happen.
LinkedIn billionaire Reid Hoffman was a top funder of this deception.
But it gets better…
The same hacks who ran this deceptive campaign against Judge Roy Moore are the same people who wrote the junk “Russia interference” report for the US Senate!
The SAME PEOPLE!
Another angle to this big @nytimes story… Guess who participated in using a Russian style disinformation campaign to influence the Alabama Senate election AND hoped to frame Russia for it? The CEO of the company that wrote the Senate Intel report on 2016 election meddling. https://t.co/uSu8HYCl15

Jonathon Morgan, Roy Moore, Reid Hoffman (Zero Hedge)
The Washington Post reported:
A leading social media researcher whose firm wrote a major report on Russian disinformation for the Senate acknowledged Tuesday night that he engaged in misleading online tactics of his own during Alabama’s hotly contested special election last year.
Jonathon Morgan, chief executive of the research firm New Knowledge, said he created a Facebook page under false pretenses to test his ability to appeal to conservative voters and bought a small amount of retweets — spending less than $10 — to measure the potential “lift” he could achieve in social media messaging.
Morgan said that he took these actions in his own capacity as a researcher seeking to understand the mechanics of disinformation tactics, not as New Knowledge’s leader, and that neither tactic was intended to affect the outcome of the race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones, who won the race and is now a U.S. senator.
So will the Washington Post apologize for running the junk attacks against Judge Roy Moore now?
