Thread: FusionGPS

  1. #1

    FusionGPS

    It looks like the company behind the Trump Russian Dossier could be a little bit more than an opposition research company, they may even be seeding the MSM and news agencies such as Reuters with fake news reports. It seems their speciality is smear campaigns and propaganda. No wonder their chairman pleaded the 5th amendment during a recent congressional hearing. I bet the Donald Trump thread is full of examples of their handiwork

    I'm guessing Trump knew the truth about FusionGPS and CNN when this little confrontation took place. It all makes sense now, they really are Fake News!

    Doesn’t really tell you much that link does it ?

    Except Donald Trumps likes regurgitating the phrase ‘Fake News’

    Most certainly regarding CNN, and highly likely with Reuters news agency. The thing is FusionGPS aren't the only ones manipulating the news that we read, it seems to be quite common place. There are too many cosy relationships where there shouldn't be, and the press gave up being objective years ago. These days it's all agenda driven, you choose your side and promote the cause.

    Cambridge Analytica (CA) is a privately held company that combines data mining and data analysis with strategic communication for the electoral process. It was created in 2013 as an offshoot of its British parent company SCL Group to participate in American politics. In 2014, CA was involved in 44 U.S. political races. The company is partly owned by the family of Robert Mercer, an American hedge-fund manager who supports many politically conservative causes. The firm maintains offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., and London.

    Donald didn't say anything, it was investigative reporters who made the connection and congress subpoenaed FusionGPS bank records to see who and what they were up too. The matter is ongoing.

    As an aside, journalists from CNN used to work with the owners of FusionGPS at the WSJ, and they are still best buddies.

    In short, Washington DC is very swampy.

    And to answer your question I'm not really concerned about CA, it's the paying of top MSM journalists to plant ficticious stories for political gain that is quite alarming.

    And !.. was gifted to the Brexit Leave campaign by a foreign influence, and ..was instrumental in getting Trump increased popularity via Social Media.

    Yep, corruption of the political process. Drain the swamp! It's time that the citizens got their voices back.
