More than a Million Pro-Repeal Net Neutrality Comments were Likely Faked

A few years ago The Guardian (I think in a piece by Monbiot) reported about “astroturf” software tools being used by industry scum (my word, not theirs, but accurate) that would enable a single person to inhabit and steer dozens of avatars to create the false impression that there was strong support for positions held by fucking polluters and industry rapists.

Note the almost complete silence of other, especially US, “news” organisations about this.

Let’s face it: we live in a demagocracy, where the best manipulator wins. We are so fucked…
