Hamilton 68

Out of the caterwaul of cries proclaiming that Russian collusion, and Russian influence operations, were the only reason Donald Trump won the 2016 US election (a hoax funded and promoted by his opponent, Hillary Clinton), a website which claimed to track said Kremlin efforts sprung forth, and was used to justify baseless allegations;

Hamilton 68: a widely-cited, (indirectly) state-sponsored propaganda tool.


Another hoax played out by the MSM only cost 44billion to expose the system, more to come.

Re: Hamilton 68

An important source disclosure on the disinformation of disinformation, the ease by which they sucked in so many people, amplified by major media outlets, and false-premise stories being used to further generate additional "news" with the false-premise stories as sources.

Re:First ofall, .... On the other hand

   First of all anything Matt Tabbi says isn't worth a grain of salt.

   On the other hand, Prigozhin himself said, "we interfered, we are interfering."

  And the fact that Tabbi's article comes from you is just proof of that.

Re: Re:First ofall, .... On the other hand

Nobody said there weren't any Russian trolls, nor that they weren't interfering in elections, and the Russians have admitted as such.  The previous Twitter execs themselves were the ones identifying the activities of Hamilton 68, etc. -- and how they took advantage of the situation to spew rubbish that was used by major media to spin more rubbish.  Taibbi was listing and summarizing and naming names, not creating the story.

Tabbi was the "go to" intellect until he stuck to his liberal roots on free speech and censorship like Greenwald

You must believe Russians interfered in the 16 election and handed it to Trump But 2020 was the most secure in History😂

Now Ricky believes the Russians🤡

 WCMO is correct on what he said try reading Ricky

This was another operation ran by  he Fbi and pushed to the MSM who all dutifully ran the stories like the good mockingbird media will always do

Hamilton 68 was and is a computerized “dashboard” designed to be used by reporters and academics to measure “Russian disinformation”. It was the brainchild of former FBI agent (and current MSNBC “disinformation expert”) Clint Watts, and backed by the German Marshall Fund and the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a bipartisan think-tank. The latter’s advisory panel includes former acting CIA chief Michael Morell, former Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, former Hillary for America chair John Podesta, and onetime Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol. -Racket


Ambitious media frauds Stephen Glass and Jayson Blair crippled the reputations of the New Republic and New York Times, respectively, by slipping years of invented news stories into their pages. Thanks to the Twitter Files, we can welcome a new member to their infamous club: Hamilton 68.

If one goes by volume alone, this oft-cited neoliberal think-tank that spawned hundreds of fraudulent headlines and TV news segments may go down as the single greatest case of media fabulism in American history. Virtually every major news organization in America is implicated, including NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and the Washington Post. Mother Jones alone did at least 14 stories pegged to the group’s “research.” Even fact-checking sites like Politifact and Snopes cited Hamilton 68 as sources.




A small sample of Hamilton 68-sourced stories.

*  *  *

The two founders of Hamilton 68, the blue-and-red team of former counselor to Marco Rubio Jamie Fly and Hillary for America Foreign Policy Advisor Laura Rosenberger, told Politico they couldn’t reveal the names of the accounts because “the Russians will simply shut them down.” Tchya, right. One look at the list reveals the real reason they couldn’t make it public.

This was not faulty science. It was a scam. Instead of tracking how “Russia” influenced American attitudes, Hamilton 68 simply collected a handful of mostly real, mostly American accounts, and described their organic conversations as Russian scheming. As Roth put it, “Virtually any conclusion drawn from [the dashboard] will take conversations in conservative circles on Twitter and accuse them of being Russian.”

Twitter execs wanted to out Hamilton 68!?

"Why can’t we say we’ve investigated… and citing Hamilton 68 is being wrong, irresponsible, and biased?" one exec asked, after Russians were blamed for hyping the #ParklandShooting hashtag.

Trust and Safety head Yoel Roth even wanted to confront Hamilton 68 - writing in one email "My recommendation at this stage is an ultimatum: you release the list or we do."

"I also have been very frustrated in not calling out Hamilton 68 more publicly, but understand we have to play a longer game here," said Carlos Monje, the future senior advisor to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

But Future White House and NSC spokesperson Emily Horne advised against it.

 As Taibbi further notes:

"So the “legitimate people,” as one Twitter exec called them, never found out they’d been used as fodder for mountains of news stories about “Russian influence.” Because the #TwitterFiles contain the list, they’ve begun finding out."



I don't expect you to say anything else Ricky, this is the same garbage you bois have played and pushed on every non truthful event in the last 6 yrs, from Russiax3 to covid to Ukraine, its why censorship and shadow banning was so important to your cause. There was never a need to have "fact checkers" until the curating of info and then the push to spread the dis info was the main mission.

The russians colluded with the FBI and the Clinton campaign in an attempt to over turn an election and remove a setting president from office. Those are the facts trickygeorgesantosDick.
