The Trail to Fake News?

Before you get all excited over Russia and fake news possibly affecting the US election....sit back a moment and consider what exactly the US created in 1949 and continues to operate today....Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty.

Both were tools or media-control devices used to broadcast out to Soviet-dominated Europe and across to Russia today.

Both bundle a US-version of news (possibly propaganda) which might be true, partially-true, partially fake, or entirely fake.

The Russians don't own fake news....they just juice up the stuff like RFE or RL would do, and pump it out as well.
