Establishment media, intelligence agencies trolled by members of online community. —>
The establishment media published a hilariously fake news story today concerning alleged Russian connections to President-elect Donald Trump along with a perverse claim involving prostitutes and a hotel room bed.
Leftist media outlets claimed Russian sources planned on using this information as blackmail against the president-elect, but the “dossier” obtained by Buzzfeed that was promulgated by CNN, The Guardian and sources within the intelligence community is fan fiction created by 4Chan.
According to an anonymous member of the online community, 4Chan fed false information to anti-Trump political pundit and neocon Rick Wilson, who has extremely close ties to ex-intelligence official Evan McMullin.
McMullin shared the dossier to fellow neocon John McCain, who then gave it to various intelligence agencies including the CIA.
An anonymous source within the intelligence community leaked the bizarre document to Buzzfeed and the corporate media published the story without fact checking or verifying its claims. Yes, a member of 4Chan is asserting that the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States of America published fake fan fiction in their original classified “report” on Russia’s supposed “involvement” in the 2016 election.
Let that sink in. The intelligence community has been trolled by someone on a message board.
Here’s a recap of the events that lead to this contrived controversy:
A post on 4Chan on October 26 stated “mfw managed to convince CTR and certain (((journalists))) on Twitter there’ll be an October surprise on Trump this Friday.”
This was long before the media picked it up.
On November 1, the same 4Chan user stated: “So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it. They still believe it. Guys, they’re truly (expletive) desperate – there’s no remaining Trump scandal that’s credible.”
On January 10 2017, the person (who could not believe this story gained traction) posted this: “I didn’t think they’d take it so far.”
The CIA and its corporate media surrogates have no credibility whatsoever.
