Quote:
The Russians engage in a sloppy disinformation effort and, before the day is out, the Republican nominee for president is standing on a stage reciting the manufactured story as truth. How did this happen? Who in the Trump campaign was feeding him falsehoods straight from the Kremlin? (The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment).

Lets be generous and assume his staff just troll the internet for anything bad about Clinton and then regurgitate it without criticism or fact checking.

So just to be clear here. I provide info that a Democrat politician admits to writing a question for his actress/daughter and Hillary picks her out of the audience of all people and that to you is merely a coincidence.

But this is proof Trump is a Russian agent.

Holy shit, you really have jumped the shark.

No, I think I said quite explicitly I did not think it is, just one of gross incompetence.

Jeremy is now a reporter?

Show us the troof... and none of that Zionist main media stuff. Give us the real news culled from your exclusive sources (slack-jawed old dudes).

Of course that's not a coincidence. Town hall events are setup to call audience members for questions. Children getting help from parents on questions to ask is also routine.

Of course not. Trump is not competent enough to be a Russian agent. We already know he or his staff trawl white supremacist sites for news, now we also know they frequent state run Russian propaganda sites. And they got had.

This was Josh Marshall's conclusion:

"In other words, don't worry. The Trump campaign isn't infiltrated by Russian intelligence (probably). They're just awash in neo-Nazi and white supremacist propaganda."

I think that is closer to the truth.

the problem with this theory - and I agree it's the most generous theory - is that this particular bit of news only showed up in two places before Sputnik pulled it because they realized they had fucked up

1. Sputnik itself
2. White supremacist forums

so ask yourself, which of these two options is worse for Team Trump to be trawling for "news"

It is possible they have an internet alert set up that tells then when anything anywhere has a story about Clinton.

As I said (in reply to another user) yes they most likely got this form far right sites, and just ran with it.

It is lazy and stupid, or a sign of the kind of people they take notice of.

Either way it is bad.
