There’s no doubt though that Russia used social media to run ads that were meant to disrupt the election in some ways. Nothing very effective with some crazy things like anti-Muslim propaganda but still they did spend some money. There were even some ads that went against Hillary.
But here’s what the media isn't sharing and it’s for obvious reasons…all U.S. Presidents have been involved in spending tax payer money to influence elections around the world. Not just who will be put in power but also in issues like Brexit where the Obama Administration spent advertising money to get voters to vote to keep Britain in the European Union (Euro).
Why is what Russia did so evil when we do the same things? I truly find it embarrassing that politicians and the media stand on their soap boxes talking about the various evil deeds being perpetrated by Russia (or other countries in general), when we are just as guilty.
The mainstream media knew the Obama Administration spent U.S. tax dollars to influence elections. They knew about Obama trying to get Benjamin Netanyahu out of office. Every day I get more and more information that truly disgusts me about how the mainstream media is misleading the citizens of our country. They purposefully blame Trump for things that they know good and well Obama was guilty of. How can they say they’re not biased?
Both political parties are screwed up. There's plenty of bad stories to go around. But because of their liberal bias they only focus on the negatives and not any positives regarding the Republican Party and their strategy is just the opposite with the Democrat Party. They are no longer news agencies but political tabloids.
