For several months we’ve been hearing a crescendo of outcries that Russia used social media to sway the 2016 presidential election. The claim has now been debunked by an unlikely source—one of the most Russiagate-frenzied big media outlets in the United States, the Washington Post.

Far away from the media echo chamber, the Post news story is headlined: “There’s Still Little Evidence That Russia’s 2016 Social Media Efforts Did Much of Anything.”

Let's be honest here.  There is no real way to quantify how much influence the Russians had in the election, especially since a lot of the underlying messages were already being thrown about by actual Americans, but this article does a piss poor analysis of how a guerilla online campaign might work.  People can't seem to get their heads wrapped around the idea that we are passed the era where messages were blasted at people in the hopes that we would be beaten down into believing them.  This is the bygone era of TV and Radio ads.  Now they want to analyze the Facebook ads and the money spent like that is how it still works.  Today the people are having a global conversation and if you want to influence people, you join the conversation and try to direct it where it goes.  Why pay FB ad money when you can use memes and source online bullshit and inject it into the conversation for free?  '

He is funny. He should stop tweeting. He says what he wants. That can be a good thing, but mostly a bad thing it seems. People don't wanna hear the truth, the liberals wanna hear some candy coated fairy tale. He is better than that fat cow Oprah & Rosie O' Fat. Perhaps shaking up the traditional political parties is good. He must pay his hairdresser alot, cause it looks like the guy does wonders. The Donald once shaved off Vince McMahon's hair.

The Oprah thing is such a load of crap. If the USA votes in another celeb out of touch with the general population they are truly screwed.
Her speech was such a load of B.S.
They all knew what was going on with Harvey and look, best buds.

I am not sure why you would focus on the liberals not being able to handle the truth when it is the conservatives that voted for the pathological liar.  People actually believed he was going to bring back coal jobs.  That is some grade A denial of the truth if I have ever seen it.

He is a total and complete moron, and worse than that, he thinks he is a genius.  That is the worst kind of moron.  Oh, and he is also fat, but I guess since he is not a woman (other than the moobs) it doesn't trigger you in the same way.

This just in ... Trump wants to know why immigrants from "shithole" countries should be protected.  Yes, the new diplomatic word describing emerging economies is "shithole".  I had to check to make sure it wasn't an Onion article republished.

Oprah is just pissed cause she is about the only celebrity woman who cannot make a sexual harassment claim.
