The following are article quotes.
“It’s often said campaigns are a battle of ideas, but they’re really a battle of narratives,” said David Eichenbaum, a Democratic media consultant who is a senior adviser to the PAC.”
“A new Democratic political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal — to combat online efforts to promote Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.”
“Defeat Disinfo will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media. It will intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take their side.”
“The initiative is r.un by Curtis Hougland, who received initial funding for the technology from DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, to combat extremism overseas. He insists Democrats are ill-prepared for the looming battle over information and attention.”
“Hougland agreed. Republicans, he said, “have greater volume frequency and quality of digital narrative.”
“Hougland’s PAC differs from more traditional Democratic-aligned PACs, like Priorities USA and American Bridge 21st Century, in embracing the practice of paying influencers to convey their messaging. The approach raised eyebrows and prompted tech companies to clarify their rules in response to Bloomberg’s presidential campaign earlier this year.”
As far as im concerned, and the rest of the world should be – this is treasonous. It doesn’t matter what your personal opinion is of the President, censoring him is a direct attack on EVERYONES FREEDOM.
It’s interesting the Pentagon is involved in this disinfo campaign. Lends credability to the idea of the Pentagon UFO’s being a distraction/misdirection.
