“masterpiece of misinformation”? I don’t think so. I see lazy media pumping out content and benefiting from the controversy to get clicks.
Look, the account had NO NAME and nothing to give it any credibility, yet everyone (including opposition) used it to get their clicks.
Everyone is in on it, click to save the world.
There is a reason why these “amateur” approaches to manipulate people work so well on social media.
As I have written elsewhere, the very nature of our biology makes fooling our brain’s perception of reality and truth quite easy.
