    Astroturf ‘Outrage Machine’ of Paid Trolls Floods Social Media to Counteract Negative News About Hillary Clinton

    Clinton SuperPAC Correct the Record, which is affiliated with her campaign...spent $1 million on project “Breaking Barriers” to pay people to respond to negative information about Clinton on social media sites like Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and Twitter. That amount has since increased to over $6 million.

    A significant portion of online support for Hillary Clinton is manufactured by paid “astroturf” trolls: a large team of supporters who spend long hours responding to negative news on the internet about her. The Clinton SuperPAC Correct the Record, which is affiliated with her campaign, acknowledged in an April press release that it was spending $1 million on project “Breaking Barriers” to pay people to respond to negative information about Clinton on social media sites like Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and Twitter. That amount has since increased to over $6 million. The trolls create a false impression that Clinton has more support than she really does, because one supporter will frequently create multiple anonymous accounts.....

    Hillary’s Anonymous Trolls First Targeted Bernie Sanders

    The Daily Kos, which preferred Bernie Sanders over Clinton, observed some of these tactics during the Democratic primary. One author wrote, “[T]here have been a number of diaries claiming to ‘have switched from Bernie to Hillary’ lately, and some of them have been from recently created accounts with no record of pro-Sanders remarks or diaries.” The author further called the Clinton effort out, writing, “We are on to your presumptive corporate shilling.”

    Not much different than having paid actors sit in during public speeches, which many people have done when running for Pres. Still sucks though.

    DOMINUS saidDon't worry, Trump will always have Bannon and Breitbart.


    And Hillary has every left leaning mainstream "news" outlets protecting her as if they are her own super PAC and helping her win without reporting all her negatives to keep the low informed voters from knowing the truth that's called suppression of the facts and practiced by every socialist country on earth!
