6. That's not even close to true. It's misinformation straight from RT.

Notice that neither NBC or the NYT any of the other major outlets that have reported on Russian support of Gabbard have retracted any of the stories.

And new Knowledge did not get busted creating "Russian bots". What actually happened was the CEO of New Knowledge created a faux-Facebook page targeting conservatives during the Alabama senate race. To say he was the creator of the Russian bots supporting Trump and Tulsi is a complete falsehood, pushed by RT and FOX, which I'm surprised to be reading here on DU.

According to the CEO, it was a minor experiment -- spent a total of $10 on it -- to see how disinformation campaigns work. I would agree that it is unethical to perform such an experiment (and the CEO has since acknowledged that), regardless of how minor, on a live election. But regardless, in no way does it even slightly prove that the evidence of Russian bots supporting Trump and Tulsi, either from New Knowledge or from anywhere else, is "fabricated."

I mean, if you want to see what Russia thinks about Tulsi, just watch RT for about 5 minutes.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
