    Default Rooskie Troll Bots

    Attacked and are attacking our Ddmocracy. Bot Farm Agents were paid $700 a month on average to infiltrate and perform in our Social Media Platforms. Their budget from the Kremlin was $12.5M a year

    They attacked both sides of the aisle. Republican and Democrat. This is not a Collusion thread.

    Regardless of Left or Right we all as Americans should be vigilant.

    When I defend or are perceived as defending Trump on Yahoo News comments, I can expect to occasionally get posts like "Beware - Russian Troll". It amazes me that liberals don't see how similar this is to "beware - commie infiltrator" of the 1950s. If you can't argue back, use that. And if libs can't argue back against a real Russian bot, they are in sad shape anyway.

    I expect news organizations to be held accountable for publishing false information. That typically means punishing the individuals responsible. I expect social media companies to know who is buying political ads and to remove bots and ficticious individuals. Won’t be perfect, but sure as heck better than the alternative.

    So if russian troll bots are on the internet, do you think they are programmed to argue FOR or AGAINSTthe US-UK-France actions in Syria?

    and of course, these social media companies run by libs, headquartered in Libdom, and employing scorched earth style lib SJWs will be the ones who decide who to remove and who to call a bot, or UNSAFE, or fake.

    yeah... won't be perfect.

    supposedly they argue both sides to enhance divisiveness. It would be pretty cool if two started arguing with each other.

    It won’t be. There are journalism ethics and standards. I’m not so cynical as to believe these couldn’t be used by both left and right leaning organizations. You’d also have to establish a bot exists by some sort of objective criteria such as IP address, posting history/content.

    Lol it could be like the old Miller Lite commercials.

    One bot argues Donald Trump is bad because he is
    TOO HARD on Russia by bombing Syria.

    The other side can argue he is bad because he is
    TOO EASY on Russia and obviously is in their pocket.

    You don't understand anything about marketing/advertising. Change the word "vote" with the word "buys" and then you just basically challenged the entire existence of advertising.

    but YOU dont believe Trump so YOU can defend your assertion with some examples. I'm all ears.

    and remember, you are providing examples of Putin behavior that supports the idea that Putin wanted him to win. Saying Putin helped Trump win because he wanted Trump to win would be circular logic.What behavior of Putin indicates that Putin liked him so much that he would try to install Trump as president.

    So, throw standards of journalism out the window. People can say and publish with impunity. Foreign governments can place political ads posing as Americans. Everyone is for themselves as far as figuring out what’s real and what’s completely made up.
