Washington Post Promotes Shadowy Website That Accuses 200 Publications
of Being Russian Propaganda Plants

A shady website that claims Russia is Manipulating US Opinion Through Online Propaganda has compiled a blacklist of websites its anonymous authors accuse of pushing fake news and Russian propaganda. The blacklist includes over 200 outlets, from the right-wing Drudge Report and Russian government-funded Russia Today, to Wikileaks and an array of marginal conspiracy and far-right sites. The blacklist also includes some of the flagship publications of the progressive left, including Truthdig, Counterpunch, Truthout, Naked Capitalism, and the Black Agenda Report, a leftist African-American opinion hub that is critical of the liberal black political establishment.

.

Called PropOrNot, the blacklisting organization was described by the Washington Posts Craig Timberg as a nonpartisan collection of researchers with foreign policy, military and technology backgrounds. The Washington Post agreed to preserve the anonymity of the groups director on the grounds that exposure could result in their being targeted by Russias legions of skilled hackers. The Post failed to explain what methods PropOrNot relied on to conclude that stories planted or promoted by the Russian disinformation campaign were viewed more than 213 million times.” (Timberg also cited a report co-authored by Aaron Weisburg, founder of the one-man anti-Palestinian Internet Haganah operation, who has been accused of interfering in federal investigations, stealing the personal information of anarchists, online harassment, and fabricating information to smear his targets.)

.

Despite the Washington Posts charitable description of PropOrNot as a group of independent-minded researchers dedicated to protecting the integrity of American democracy, the shadowy group bears many of the qualities of the red enemies it claims to be battling. In addition to its blacklist of Russian dupes, it lists a collection of outlets funded by the U.S. State Department, NATO and assorted tech and weapons companies as allies. PropOrNots methodology is so shabby it is able to peg widely read outlets like Naked Capitalism, a leading left-wing financial news blog, as Russian propaganda operations.

.

Though the supposed experts behind PropOrNot remain unknown, the site has been granted a veneer of credibility thanks to the Washington Post, and journalists from the New York Times, including deputy Washington editor Jonathan Weissman to former Obama senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer, are hailing Timbergs story as Pulitzer-level journalism. Russia appears to have successfully hacked American democracy, declared Sahil Kapur, the senior political reporter for Bloomberg. The dead-enders of Hillary Clintons campaign for president have also seized on PropOrNots claims as proof that the election was rigged, with Clinton confidant and Center For American Progress president Neera Tanden declaring, Wake up people, as she blasted out the Washington Post article on Russian black ops.

.

PropOrNots malicious agenda is clearly spelled out on its website. While denying McCarthyite intentions, the group is openly attempting to compel formal investigations by the U.S. government, because the kind of folks who make propaganda for brutal authoritarian oligarchies are often involved in a wide range of bad business.
