From what I can tell, that piece wasn’t really about you at all. It was a setup to reinforce the still-unsubstantiated (and in fact disproved by numerous experts) tale that the Russians hacked the DNC and Clinton campaign. By linking the skewed version of your story with that alleged event, NPR hoped to not only add another layer to the belief system but establish the possibility (probability?) there are “Russian operatives” undermining the republic as we speak.
I suppose one should be grateful they just blamed you for Mr. Robot (which they clearly either never watched or didn’t understand) and for not electing Donald Trump at the behest of your boss Vladimir Vladimirovich.
