The revelation that the FBI is investigating whether Infowars assisted in helping Russian operatives as part of a secret cyber operation to help Donald Trump win the presidency is the ludicrous culmination of four months of wall to wall leftist hysteria about Moscow “hacking” the election.
Federal investigators will probe whether Russian operatives created bots to blitz social media with pro-Trump stories that harmed Hillary Clinton’s campaign, including links from Infowars, RT, and Breitbart.
“Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook,” reports McClatchy.
Having failed to stymie our accelerating growth for over a decade, long before “Russian hacking” or “fake news” was even a thing, this partisan investigation is a transparent attempt to silence and censor Infowars by ludicrously impugning us as a conduit for Kremlin propaganda.
It’s also incredibly ironic given that the only evidence of tech outfits interfering in the election to deliberately help a certain candidate implicates Google, Facebook and Twitter in manipulating their own algorithms to aid Hillary Clinton.
As we’ve seen from the establishment’s fake news narrative, this is nothing less than a ruse to try to ban legitimate news coverage and dissenting opinion, despite a Stanford University study which found that fake news had no impact on the outcome of the presidential election and if anything benefited Hillary Clinton.
