“I Was Just Offered $400 To Make An Anti-Trump J6 Social Media Post”
I want to make something very clear upfront in this article.
I do not know this man…
I have not spoken to him…
I cannot independently verify what he is claiming…
I am taking what he is saying at face value and assuming he is telling the truth.
Now, if he IS telling the truth, this is a huge admission!
We all suspected that Soros-money and other Far Left sources are funding anti-Trump social media teams.
I’ve written about it many times — see here for example.
But now we may have proof.
And it’s worse than we even expected.
This is not just flooding social media to make it look like Biden is more popular than Trump.
What this guy describes is essentially fabricating testimony to support charges of a crime.
Or…charges of 4 indictments perhaps?
Conditioning the public?
What I find most interesting is this guy says he’s an attorney and if that is true then it seems to me he would have a moral and ethical duty to tell the truth about this story.
And that’s why I take him at face value — because it appears that is exactly what he’s doing here.
The National Review also covered the video:
An attorney with a popular TikTok account says the Good Information Foundation, a nonprofit focused on fighting disinformation, offered to pay him $400 to make an “anti–Donald Trump propaganda post related to the January 6 investigation that is completely not true.”
“I should start out this video by saying I am not a Donald Trump supporter so that should give a little bit of context to where I’m coming from,” Preston Moore said in a video posted to TikTok over the weekend where he shares screenshots of the alleged communication.
He explains that he got an email from the Good Information Foundation — which is led by Rick Stengel, former undersecretary of state during the Obama administration — offering $400 for an Instagram post relating to January 6.
After saying he was open to collaboration, he says the group sent him an email including “important notes” and “key messaging” that should be included in the post.
“Remind your followers about the images and scenes from the January 6th insurrection,” the email said.
It then offered an example of what he might say: “You probably saw this [greenscreen of Jan 6th violence] happen but what a lot of people don’t know is that the violence on January 6 was actually planned and paid for by Trump Republicans.”
The email added: “Talk about the many aspects of their plan and the broad involvement of Trump officials, members of Congress [redacted] . . . ”
As an example, the email offers: “The Trump campaign paid literally millions of dollars to make January 6th happen.”
Another point of “key messaging” that the email suggests Moore tell his followers: “It’s important to know that this wasn’t a one day thing—there is an ongoing threat of political violence or MAGA Rebublicans trying to overturn elections.”
Moore said that “most importantly” the foundation said that he “must channel all of this on to the manipulation of voter agencies so that I could turn their anger around this event into defiance that would make people more likely to vote in midterms.”
Here is the full list of things he claims he was told to include in the video (note: there does not appear to be any consideration given for whether any of these things are TRUE or not, as it pertains to the guy they are paying to say them, and that’s a big problem, don’t you think?):
Now let’s watch the video…

And a backup on Rumble too:
I also find this headline from the BBC very interesting because it seems to confirm this man’s video: anti-Trump social media influencers ARE being paid to publish paid propaganda videos — and apparently so many that it merited a full BBC article:
Anti-Trump TikTokkers not declaring paid content
Here’s more from that BBC article:
TikTok has removed a number of videos after a BBC investigation showed creators were posting anti-Trump material without disclosing that they were paid for by a marketing company.
The company, Bigtent Creative, funds skits and memes to persuade people to register, such as mixing rapper Cardi B’s WAP song with a message from her telling people to vote.
Some of the videos it has paid for are non-partisan, but others call for President Trump to be voted out of office and in none of the videos do the creators disclose that they have been paid.
TikTok bans political ads and requires people to declare paid-for content. When we showed TikTok what we found, the company took several TikToks down – these had already got hundreds of thousands of views.
Guidelines from the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) stipulate content creators should always disclose paid partnerships, usually by using ‘#ad’ in the caption.
A TikTok spokesperson said: “These guidelines also apply to paid content by influencers, and we rely on influencers and marketers to follow FTC guidelines.
“We remove paid influencer content that’s not disclosed as such as we become aware of it and are now taking action on this.”
So….what do you think?
Is this guy telling the truth?
