The New York Times has a particularly egregious article about Russian meddling in elections.
Most of the article is non specific threats related by, “American officials briefed on recent intelligence.”
It’s just that there are some people sowing dissent, and maybe some people saying nice things about American Nazis, (Maybe it’s those Nazis we should worry about) and possibly some bogus BLM groups.
They never give specific groups, or posts.
The ONLY specific actions mentioned in the article (actual quotes) wait until the last paragraph, and they are 1 story, and 2 OP/EDs from the Kremlin owned RT:
- “Last week, RT ran a story about a video of New York police arresting a black man that sparked outrage.” (New York Times covered the story as well)
- “Publishing an article in January accusing The New York Times of hating white people.”
- “Criticizing Hank Azaria for quitting as the voice of Apu on “The Simpsons.”
There is no reason that this editor should not have sent this back with a big red “BS” on the cover.
