Leaked documents reveal a covert government-funded influence operation and smear machine that is colluding with journalists to propagandize the public under the guise of combatting Russian disinformation. And the mainstream press is totally ignoring it…
“Through cash inducements & off the record briefings, the Integrity Initiative has sought 2 organize journalists across the West into an international echo chamber hyping up the threat of Russian disinformation & 2 defame politicians & journalists critical of this new Cold War”
“A newly released Integrity Initiative document reveals that the outfit plans an aggressive expansion across the US.”

It’s ironic that western governments are guilty of precisely what they insist the Russians are doing with regard to disinformation. And no one seems to care.
“A major hub of Integrity Initiative influence is the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, a US govt propaganda op established by Obama to battle online ISIS recruitment, but which was rapidly repurposed to counter Russian disinformation following the election of Trump”
“The Integrity Initiative has recruited 1 of the most infamous American PR men 2 organize its clusters of journalists & political figures. He is John Rendon, best known as “The Man Who Sold The War” — several wars, in fact, but most notoriously the Iraq invasion.” History repeats
A former field worker for Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign is now working with a covert British government funded disinformation operation that smears left wing politicians like Jeremy Corbyn (and Bernie Sanders).
It’s shocking this isn’t a bigger story
