Washington Post Admits Russia Did Not Rig 2016 Election
The Washington Post published yesterday morning a cybersecurity newsletter stating “Russian trolls on Twitter had little influence on 2016 voters.” Some excerpts:
- Only 1 percent of Twitter users accounted for 70 percent of the exposure to accounts that Twitter identified as Russian troll accounts.
- Highly partisan Republicans were exposed to nine times more posts than non-Republicans.
- Content from the news media and U.S. politicians dwarfed the amount of Russian influence content the electorate was exposed to during the 2016 race.
- There was no measurable impact on “political attitudes, polarization, and vote preferences and behavior” from the Russian accounts and posts.
The idea that Russia rigged America’s 2016 election has been debunked. It’s taken this long for the mainstream media to acknowledge this. This may be surprising to some. But there is an agenda behind the smear campaign. To learn more, read Chapter 4 of Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry’s book America Under Attack.
