An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda

We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the red-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.

Please note that our criteria are behavioral. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are motivation-agnostic. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here are being knowingly directed and paid by Russian intelligence officers, or whether they even knew they were echoing Russian propaganda at any particular point: If they meet these criteria, they are at the very least acting as bona-fide "useful idiots" of the Russian intelligence services, and are worthy of further scrutiny.

We assess that this overall Russian effort is at least semi-centralized, with multiple Russian projects and influence operations working in parallel to manage the direct and outsourced production of propaganda across a wide range of outlets. It is data-driven, and rewards effective entrepreneurship and innovation with increased funding and other resources. There are varying degrees of involvement in it, and awareness of involvement. Some people involved seem genuinely unaware that they are being used by Russia to produce propaganda, but many others seem to know full well.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Washington Post Appends "Russian Propaganda Fake News" Story, Ad

Washington Post Appends "Russian Propaganda Fake News" Story, Admits It May Be Fake

By Tyler Durden

December 08, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "Zero Hedge" - In the latest example why the "mainstream media" is facing a historic crisis of confidence among its readership, facing unprecedented blowback following Craig Timberg November 24 Washington Post story "Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say", on Wednesday a lengthy editor's note appeared on top of the original article in which the editor not only distances the WaPo from the "experts" quoted in the original article whose "work" served as the basis for the entire article (and which became the most read WaPo story the day it was published) but also admits the Post could not "vouch for the validity of PropOrNot's finding regarding any individual media outlet", in effect admitting the entire story may have been, drumroll "fake news" and conceding the Bezos-owned publication may have engaged in defamation by smearing numerous websites - Zero Hedge included - with patently false and unsubstantiated allegations.

It was the closest the Washington Post would come to formally retracting the story, which has now been thoroughly discredited not only by outside commentators, but by its own editor.

The apended note in question:

Editor’s Note: The Washington Post on Nov. 24 published a story on the work of four sets of researchers who have examined what they say are Russian propaganda efforts to undermine American democracy and interests. One of them was PropOrNot, a group that insists on public anonymity, which issued a report identifying more than 200 websites that, in its view, wittingly or unwittingly published or echoed Russian propaganda. A number of those sites have objected to being included on PropOrNot’s list, and some of the sites, as well as others not on the list, have publicly challenged the group’s methodology and conclusions. The Post, which did not name any of the sites, does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet, nor did the article purport to do so. Since publication of The Post’s story, PropOrNot has removed some sites from its list.

As The Washingtonian notes, the implicit concession follows intense and rising criticism of the article over the past two weeks. It was “rife with obviously reckless and unproven allegations,” Intercept reporters Glenn Greenwald and Ben Norton wrote, noting that PropOrNot, one of the groups whose research was cited in Timberg’s piece, “anonymous cowards.” One of the sites PropOrNot cited as Russian-influenced was the Drudge Report.

The piece’s description of some sharers of bogus news as “useful idiots” could “theoretically include anyone on any social-media platform who shares news based on a click-bait headline,” Mathew Ingram wrote for Fortune.

But the biggest issue was PropOrNot itself. As Adrian Chen wrote for the New Yorker, its methods were themselves suspect, hinting at counter-Russian propaganda - ostensibly with Ukrainian origins - and verification of its work was nearly impossible. Chen wrote “the prospect of legitimate dissenting voices being labelled fake news or Russian propaganda by mysterious groups of ex-government employees, with the help of a national newspaper, is even scarier.”

Criticism culminated this week when the "Naked capitalism" blog threatened to sue the Washington Post, demanding a retraction.

Now, at least, the "national newspaper" has taken some responsibility, however the key question remains: by admitting it never vetted its primary source, whose biased and conflicted "work" smeared hundreds of websites, this one included, just how is the Washington Post any different from the "fake news" it has been deriding on a daily basis ever since its endorsed presidential candidate lost the elections?

The views expressed in this article are the author's own and do not necessarily reflect Information Clearing House editorial policy.

Hillary Clinton takes on the concept of fake news...

"Lives are at risk": In her first visit to the Capitol since her shocking election loss, Hillary Clinton called on Congress to address the “epidemic” of fake news that she said was a danger to the nation. “It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” she said.

One such fake news story had Clinton running a child sex abuse ring out of a pizzeria in Washington, Comet Ping Pong.

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” Clinton continued.


1984 by George Orwell is worth keeping in mind as this story unfolds.

George Orwell hacked the Podesta emails- Rappaport

Quotes Excerpted fro John Rappaport's Article:

“…to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy…” [This statement influenced readers to see that lying government leaders were pretending to a moral sense they did not possess.]

“But actually, he thought as he re-adjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connexion with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connexion that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version.” [Generations of readers realized that the government was simply inventing itself as it wanted the public to see it. Government was a hoax. And if government was a hoax, and you wanted to reveal that, you would have to find a way into secret communications. Thus, Orwell spawned untold numbers of independent spies who began looking into the private communications of political power players.]

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?” [This statement alerted readers that news networks were omitting a whole range of ideas about the true actions of government—and therefore, again, independent citizens would have to dig into the personal communications of leaders, in order to discover what they were actually thinking and talking about.]

“…perhaps the Party was rotten under the surface…” [Readers, generations of readers took to that phrase. If the Party was rotten, then you had to go under the surface to find that out. You had to scrape into the private corruption behind the public face.]

“The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought… All rulers in all ages have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers.” [The effect of this inflammatory statement is obvious. Rebels, generations of rebels have probed the inner workings of the government, in order to expose what the government is actually doing, in order to prevent a complete takeover.]

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”

Congress made Fake News legal...

If government officials are so concerned about "fake news" then why did they repeal the Smith-Mundt act making government fake news legal? HR 5736 basically negated the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (U.S. Intelligence and Educational Exchange Act). The bill was passed as part of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, several months after Sandy Hook.

Kellyanne Conway, a top aide to President-elect Donald Trump, says the best example of fake news is the idea he could not defeat Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in their race the White House.

The corporate owned media and their partners in government are working overtime to spread the fake news meme. This meme is designed to limit, and ultimately destroy, the independent and alternative media by censoring anti-establishment viewpoints.

Can this story be verified (probably Fake News)? If it's legit -it's hard to ignore.

Thanks! I hate "click bait" so-called alternative websites

"Click bait" and "Rage bait" sensationalism, hyperboles and lies just irritate the heck out of me. It is dollar driven tabloid trailer trash.

"Before Its News" is mud. Low scum.
Go to for hyperbole deception and click to support covert CIA operations.

Neocons are behind "Fake News" and "Russian warmongering"

It is my contention that the Neocons are behind this campaign of "Fake News" and Russian warmongering.
They must take out "The Alternative Media" in order to better fulfill their agendas.
Their agenda will never succeed if "The Alternative Media" has credibility.
Notice how "Fake News" is often portrayed as an arm of Russian propaganda.

The PNAC guys, the Neocons, rebranded themselves under "The Foreign Policy Initiative" and have gathered a younger generation of minions within their ranks.

Nine Months ago Robbie Martin details aspects of Russia being targeted by the Neocons.


The "Project for a New American Century" continued extremely strong with Obama and Hillary, and now it seems like elements are on Trump's team.


Great 12 minute summary of the Neocon agenda during Obama and Hillary.

Neocon recruitment of the younger generation gives momentum

When the Neocons rebranded themselves with new Think Tanks like "The Foreign Policy Initiative", they also focused on recruiting a younger generation. This includes journalists.
Thus, there is not only a new cast of characters who are unrecognizable from the old PNAC brand, this younger generation helps to ensure their objective of perpetual American global dominance.

Killing the 9/11 Movement...
I feel like it becomes paramount in any movement's success for the younger generation to pick up the torch.
The "Powers That Should Not Be" recognize that time will erode a just movement. The younger generation rarely has the passion to carry on a just campaign of which they don't wear the memory of the event.
Examples of deflated passion: The Gulf of Tonkin, Agent Orange, the sterilization of Native Americans up to 1976, JFK, MLK, etc.
The 9/11 Truth Movement fades away unless the younger generation carry that torch.

If the 9/11 Truth Movement is to survive with a passionate momentum towards Truth and Justice, it will take more than a bunch of old retiring men.
Inspiring the younger generation to passionately carry that torch should be a top priority.
