Firm That Warned Americans Of Russian Bots... Was Running An Army Of Fake Russian Bots https://www.zerohedg...ke-russian-bots
The co-founders of cybersecurity firm New Knowledge warned Americans in November to “remain vigilant” in the face of “Russian efforts” to meddle in US elections. This month, they have been exposed for doing just that themselves.
Ryan Fox and Jonathan Morgan, who run the New Knowledge cybersecurity company which claims to “monitor disinformation” online, penned a foreboding op-ed in the New York Times on November 6, about “the Russians” and their nefarious efforts to influence American elections.
The New Knowledge guys even authored a Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russia's alleged efforts to mess with American democracy. They called it a "propaganda war against American citizens."
This week, however, we learned that New Knowledge was running its own disinformation campaign, complete with fake Russian bots designed to discredit Republican candidate Roy Moore as a Russia-preferred candidate when he was running for the US senate in Alabama in 2017.
