It appears that “Far-Right” News Outlets will be placed even further under the microscope as reports indicate that Federal investigators are examining whether these type of news sites played any influential role last year in a Russian cyber operation that allegedly dramatically widened the reach of news stories. Including, some fictional that favored Newly elected Donald Trump’s presidential bid.
The sources had indicated that Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.
Under this investigation against Conservative internet sites, the list includes Breitbart News, InfoWars, as well as the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News. These sites are now being placed under a large microscope and will have a fine-tooth comb ran through them by Federal Investigators. This situation may be about to get real bumpy and fast!
