WND.com Highlights Andrea Shea King’s Report On ‘Page Right Out of KGB Handbook’
When an editor and a reporter at USA Today began investigating Pentagon propaganda efforts, the pair became targets of a deliberate online “misinformation campaign.”
It is not known who perpetrated the action, but it is reminiscent of the early CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, in which propaganda was strategically placed in select media outlets to influence and control events. And people.
Last week’s incident took on a more modern approach: phony Facebook and Twitter accounts were created “under the names of the reporter and editor with postings denigrating their professional reputations,” according to USA Today.
The timing of it is highly suspicious, coinciding with “stories by Pentagon correspondent Tom Vanden Brook, who has written about the military’s ‘information operations’ program that spent large sums on marketing campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
