Dems To Face Disinformation Campaign
Politico reports a wide-ranging disinformation campaign aimed at Democratic 2020 candidates is already under way on social media.
Who are the main targets?
California Senator Kamala Harris ...
... Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren ...
... Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders ...
... and former Texas representative Beto O'Rourke.
Politico reviewed data recently extracted from Twitter and from other platforms.
The goal appears to be to undermine the candidacies through the dissemination of memes, hashtags, misinformation and distortions.
The divisive nature of the posts hints at a broader effort to sow discord and chaos within the Democratic presidential primary.
