So it begins.

Now we dive into another entity named in the recent Politico #200list story.

What is a "hoax?"

What is a "story?"

Who are the "narrators?"

#StoryFul 📖
«Storyful» has branded itself as the "world's social media intelligence agency."

Well that's just nifty. As if we needed more intelligence agencies acting like mad scientists on Twitter.

Thanks Jack. 🤨👌
With clients like these what could go wrong?

This is not about "right vs. left" it's about control & censorship. The MSM is all smoke & mirrors. Disinformation is no bueno but worse is the misinformation (or missed information 🤔).
Ben went in early on Storyful.

Rupert Murdoch bought them in 2013 from Mark Little an Irish media executive.
They filled a need for the MSM which was struggling to keep up with the interwebs. Basically they analyze Reddit, Twitter, and the Chans.
They are still HQ'd in Dublin which explains the Teneo connection.
Current CEO Farjami lists Gab & the chans as his alt-right targets.
Mocking the "Deep Web" over 5G & vaccines. Think they may follow @Jordan_Sather_ ? 🤐
They hired this guy who has the douchiest name ever (except for perhaps Carroll Quigley🤫).

Hayden left Storyful for the SPLC in Dec '18.
Hayden is an Antifa Resistard dedicated to trolling the Proud Boys and other far right wing groups.

He describes himself as a "dramatist" in his bio.

So he's an actual Story teller...a journalist LARPing for multiple #FakeNews outlets.

Noice.
Mandy Jenkins

She is on the Global Council to Build Trust in Media and Fight Misinformation. It was created by the European Broadcasting Union. I could probably do an entire thread on the EBU involving Nazi history, funding, EU and more. 🤪
What makes it a bit challenging with these orgs is that the collaborate & partner with multiple entities.

Mandy is the president of the Online News Association (ONA).

Take a look around this site to see how much of a rats nest we are dealing with.

Another example is this little Omidyar project involving Storyful's Malachy Brown.
Or this Frankenstein project planning on creating an actual "Blacklist" using Storyful.

It doesn't get much clearer than this...
The "News Integrity Initiative" sounds alot like the "Integrity Initiative" and the "Democracy Integrity Project."

Very similar network and mission as well.
James Hoge from Teneo (top of the thread) is not just some random person either.

He's a long time media asset for the deepstate.
The Yale grad was Editor of the Foreign Affairs (the CFR exclusive publication). Deep family ties and prominent chair positions.
I neglected to mention some of the recent "stories" Storyful has helped create.

#200list ☑️
#CovingtonBoys ☑️
#AcostaAssault ☑️

And This...

I also assumed everyone knows what the #200list story was.

If not...
politico.com/story/2019/02/…
I did some more digging and will be updating this thread or creating another soon..

It will be looking into the various partnership Storyful has like this one with MOAT (Oracle).
MOAT brings 'Open Brand Safety" to improve advertising.

Realize that part of the plan for these propagandist is to drive consumers to specific products & brands.

They decide what news is real/fake and censor what they don't agree with. Collect data & push ads.

Clickbait...
Going back to the Alabama hoax..

It really helps them reach both "sides" of the political divide if they create content that drives both sides to the fight.

So they amplify stories on both sides to increase clicks & viewing duration.

Smoke & mirrors.
