Americans Working For The Russian Troll Factory

As a follow up to my previous article on election law violations and possible sanction violations involving USA Really, the Russian troll factory Internet Research Agency backed disinformation site, I looked into the people contributing to the website. Since the website does not offer a page that lists all authors and contributors like many reputable sites do, I took a peek at the REST API the site uses on the back end.

After creating a list of known authors, I used search engines and reverse image searches to learn more about them. I suppose it’s no surprise that a website targeting Americans also employs them, but I wonder if these authors are aware of sanctions and their duty to register as foreign agents.

Many of these authors have worked for other propaganda websites, which is likely how they were introduced to USA Really. The reason I share this is because some of these authors have also worked for reputable news organizations.

The data below is in no particular order and will likely be updated over time.
