America The Land of Dysfunctional

Coronavirus Exposes Just How Broken America Really Is

Cristal M Clark 

The Coronavirus has exposed the many things here in America that we have learned to put up with and ignore just as we tend to do when in an unhealthy relationship. Our political system is corrupt, our economy is a train wreck and it has been for a number of years, as citizens we are just as divided as ever and full of hate and rage, and the leading health experts in this country cannot seem to agree. 

pro-trump-protesters-push-back-against-stay-at-home-orders-crimeshop

Even as I write this tonight, some states are looking to re-open this week, going against the guidelines set forth from the president and his team, while other states have extended the stay at home orders. According to CNN over 60% of the population here in the US is uncomfortable opening states up too soon while over at FoxNews Tucker Carlson is suggesting that that science suggests we not stay inside. 

Plague-Doctors-Terrifying-crimeshop

At least Trump is more calm during his press conferences these days but he needs to grow a pair. Agreeing and urging protesters to carry on is dangerous. Here in Denver, I know an individual who thought she had the virus, while waiting on her test results, she willingly went out to protest on Sunday possibly infecting others. While she did stay in her car, we know she in fact stuck her head out the window to yell and carry on like some deranged lunatic. 

denver-colorado-protester-tells-nurse-move-to-china

Our economy has left many of us wondering what in the hell and has gotten us thinking about what we really want to do moving forward. The cost of living skyrocketed since 2008 and while people had jobs, wages did not keep in line with the actual cost of living. Our response to the virus was so dysfunctional and full of so much disinformation it wasn’t even funny not to mention, we still are unsure of just how many have been infected. We have business leaders, the president and citizens pushing to open up while we fail to look at our history in terms of rushing to get back to life as we know it and a virus.  

Dr-Anthony-Fauci_Crimeshop

Not even our so-called experts can agree as to whether or not the virus will return in the coming months and should it then what? 

America-the-Dysfunctional-crimeshop

The United States was not prepared for this at all. We have been unable to adapt to our unseen enemy and our inability to agree as a nation to fight it is a rather disgusting image quite honestly.

Covid-19_crimeshop - Edited

I know people who currently have the virus and while it is survivable for many, it is not survivable for all and because we do not have the testing needed so as to test everyone, it is dangerous to assume that it’s okay to go out and carry on as if the virus is not a danger. Anyone can have a weakened immune system and not know it, they do not deserve to be put into harm’s way, the elderly do not either. But until modern medicine can get a grasp on treating the virus or a proper vaccine can be made, the virus is here to stay and could mutate into something much worse. 

Covid-19-protests-crimeshop

We fail at learning to adapt. Most of these hideous protesters fail to realize that things are not going back to normal. Most states are limited numbers of gatherings still, limiting the number of how many can be in any retail establishment at one time, including bars and restaurants, festivals, sporting events and concerts are a no go for the foreseeable future, and most offices have been asked by states to reduce the number of staff in the office by 50% for the foreseeable future. This has damaged our already teetering economy, millions will still be out of work for the foreseeable future and what if, let’s just say the virus continues to hit us hard and we face more shutdowns? 

Covid-19-Coronavirus_crimeshop

We as a country and as a society need to find better ways of adapting, to an environment we cannot control. Businesses and owners need to adapt to less greed, because what we have seen out of most from this leaves a lot of us with a rather bad taste in our mouths. We need to adapt in our daily habits. The United States Government needs to take a hard look at mainstream media and the tactics they employ so as to inform the public, part of the reason this is going so very badly is because of the mainstream media. It’s time Donald to do something about that shit show. 

We need to find a new way to survive as a country and a society, but first we need clear, concise, understandable information from all levels of our government and that includes the health experts.

DONALD TRUMP – Replace CNN With Worldwide U.S. Propaganda Network

Donald-Trump-takes-down-media-crimeshop

Donald Trump Attacks Cable News – Again

Another Monday, another attack on cable news by Trump.

cnn-CrimeShop

Trump again took to Twitter and had this to say:

“While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way, something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT! ”

fox-news-crimeshop

I’m sorry but doesn’t the US already have a worldwide propaganda network, FoxNews?

mainstream-media-weapons-of-mass-deception-crimeshop

Not to mention that Trump is just tossing around completely false claims in that CNN’s ratings here in the US seem to be low.

They aren’t and while I feel they get carried away with every major news stories they air, they do have some pretty impressive ratings.

trump-takes-on-media-crimeshop

Of course this is not unlike past claims towards CNN, NBC, MSNBC notably, Trump never seems to knock his already existing propaganda network, FoxNews.

Earlier this month Trump’s ridiculous feud with CNN reached a high point when he and Jim Acosta got into it during a press conference where the two had an pretty heated exchange the day after Republicans were dealt big losses in the midterm elections.

first-amendment-crimeshop

The argument ended with Trump and CNN arguing over first amendment rights.

Yet, I have to sit back and look at the reality of the situation in all honesty here, Trump has a degree of a point.

technology-better-than-trumps-state-of-the-union-crimeshop

The actual truth is that every cable news giant is already a propaganda churning network as it is.

Really, sit back and watch every single one for a week.

propaganda-media-controls-us-crimeshop

Here you will find biased reporting all the way around, we have some that you will find filling every news report with either pro-Trump or anti-Trump one sided reporting, sexism, some networks are clearly still full of racism while others support Trump in attempting to stifle the growth that we have achieved for our brothers and sisters in the LGBTQ communities.

The point being is that cable news does in fact abuse it’s first amendment rights because instead of actual reporting they are attempting to create fans through biased and not entirely truthful or factual reporting.

Every story is one sided with cable news these days.

Journalism-dead-crimeshop

Cable news, the mainstream media, they are far more responsible for creating some of the very major issues we face on a daily basis in the US.

They have by far, done way more damage than our President and Russian Meddling combined.

And because of that continual abuse, maybe the US should take a hardline against cable news and do away with it all together.

Fox News – No Moral or Ethical Compass

fake-fox-news-fake-news-crimeshop

Caught Reporting Completely Fabricated News Stories

I suppose that this surprised no one at all, Fox News has the reputation of being a Trump propaganda media outlet.

foxnews-crimeshop

Yet, not unlike some of the other mainstream media outlets, they report anything and everything just shy of actual real life factual news.

media-mainstream-crimeshop

Yes they speak about the recent uptick in violent left and right wing supporters, but then they more often than not careen way off script and just start giving us personal thoughts, opinions and conspiracy theories.

Which play a rather unarguable part in those to far left or right that are somewhat off and decide to do something, violent.

Words even those spoken or written by the press can carry with them deeply frightening consequences.

Russian meddling carries very little weight actually where opinions are concerned here in the US.

fox-news-fake-news-crimeshop.jpg

It seems to me that our very own media are the ones causing the most irrevocable harm by distributing and sharing disinformation that is so clearly designed to sway public opinion that is it sickening.

Social-Media-crimeshop.jpg

While those who have been responsible for recent threats and murder simply spread hate through social media.

gab-SHUTDOWN-crimeshop

Causing one site, Gab ai to be promptly shut down. I actually am part of that site, I use it on a personal level to better track how certain headlines inspire hate rhetoric in the US. Something law enforcement should have been doing a better job of for quite some time. But that is another matter entirely.

migrant-caravan-crimeshop

Fox News while speaking of the migrant caravan heading towards the US, mislead viewers by mentioning that those in the caravan might spread disease once in the US.

Information that is completely unverified by the way.

So do I get ready for the zombie apocalypse finally or…do I buy a gun, start shooting any and every migrant I come across?

Between Fox News, CNN, Morning Joe, I don’t know whether to feed an immigrant or get ready for a war with them.  

You see how people can take such misinformation and apply it to frame of mind that can become dangerous?

Prior to this, all we heard was that within the caravan are dangerous Mexican cartel and gang members, terrorists and the like seeking to gain entrance into the US in an effort to rape, plunder and pillage innocent US citizens.

While other news outlets left viewers believing the caravan contains innocent mothers and children.

Words are more powerful than most would think if our own media outlets cannot respect that, they should not be licensed to present the news at all.

obama-flips-bird-to-fox-news-crimeshop

The media’s job and I have this before is not to sway public opinion but to deliver the news in a moral and ethical manner. To report fairly and not support one side over the other. It is is to report impartially.

Something the folks at CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and a handful of others have long forgotten.

Who bloody cares what Trump and his goon squad say, the media has a moral and ethical obligation to refrain from following suit and finally get back to fair and impartial reporting with facts and not misinformation.

All joking aside, kudos Google design lead Dave Hogue.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, David had this to say with regards to Brett Kavanaugh being nominated and confirmed as our newest Supreme Court Justice.

“You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F*CK. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL.”

Dave finished with:

“I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames.”

It is refreshing to see absolute honesty and someone with some balls who just said what he thought.

A sentiment many of the rest of us here feel Dave, no worries we have your back on this one.

google-rocks-crimeshop

Not to mention, Google seems to be pretty okay with Dave’s personal feelings with regards to Brett Kavanaugh and the GOP telling FoxNews “What employees say in their personal capacity has no bearing on the way we build or operate our products.”

Google by the way has been recently accused of anti-conservative bias at the company, something the tech giant denies.

Either way, Dave is one hell of a guy for sharing his thoughts with the world on Twitter even though he has since deleted the very straight forward Tweet.

Monstrous Hurricane Michael

hurricane-michael-crimeshop

Heads to Florida?

What happened the last time no one listened to the news with regards to a potentially catastrophic hurricane?

huricaneflorence-crimeshop

That’s right, people died.

Florence.

But it was nowhere like Katrina.

hurricane-katrina-crimeshop

It’s not funny but, CNN had a reporter go on air and say something like they knew we were all tired of of the media hype of the hurricane but without that, more people would have perished?

And, I know not everyone is a weather person but, if you look at the shape, size and wind prejectory of Katrina, to Florence to Michael, you can tell which one would be more catastrophic. You can see it in the damn pictures of each hurricane for God’s sake.

The CNN reporter went on to inform everyone that we need that, we need them.

facebook-kids-messenger-crimeshop

Incorrect, given the local media telling people to leave, the parishes, the municipalities and governments, the same number of individuals would have perished.

Hence, we do not need CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC, Etc.

Because of our ability to be more mobile we no longer need media in an effort to evacuate.

mainstream-media-dying-crimeshop.jpeg

The science of the media trying to tell us that we need them is like a cigarette trying to convince one to not quit.

I used to be a smoker and gave it up, just like the media.

People know the risks, they also know they stand a better chance of actually getting a home paid for by insurance if they can make it on camera, where the world can see them suffer.

We did see that the last hurricane right? A weatherman was pretending to withstand hurricane force winds while townspeople behind him casually walked by…I did see that headline.

The media is crediting itself before something happens these days.

Enough is enough.

We get it, another hurricane is approaching. Everyone run, run now and make a scene on your way out so that CNN can capture that on tape.

Here is the deal, I have actually been in Florida during hurricane season. Floridians would be aghast if they saw what you are telling us out here in Colorado about the approaching hurricane, the media is creating a death sentence. Already!

Floridians are used to this, they have it. Let it go. It’s like the media reporting a blizzard in Colorado, the power is out, people are suffering.

Umm no, we are not.

Idiots.

Stop trying so hard to sell a story and try for once to tell a story without an agenda.

That is something our mainstream media here in the US, they just simply cannot do.

Trump Hit – Sustains Black Eye

 

trump-vs-mainstream-media-Crime_Shop

 

By Mainstream Media

 

You know the mainstream media says this every day, especially CNN, “Donald Trump takes to twitter to talk about things that don’t matter in an effort to hide the things that do matter.”

 

mainstream_media_crimeshop

 

Sorry mainstream media, that is hands down what you are doing here.

A soldier killed in action matters, Trump’s response to it, it doesn’t matter as long as he actually made the effort.

He sucks at words, we all know this.

 

For an entire 24 hour period I have seen nothing but stories and even some I am pretty sure were not entire truths reported by the mainstream media with regards to Trump’s lack of empathy.

 

kim-jong-un survives-US assassination-plot-crimeshop

 

Excuse me, but could I get a show of hands of those that thought he actually had just one tiny ounce of empathy in his body? Anyone???

Trump according to many news outlets was a complete letdown in a phone call to offer condolences to the widow of a slain soldier which has since then, exploded into a sad display that swamped the White House on Wednesday, that ended in the soldier’s grieving mother accusing the president of disrespecting her family and a defiant Mr. Trump complaining that his words had been cynically twisted for political purposes.

Here’s a message to anyone who is getting a tweet, call or letter from Trump, do you bother to read his tweets, he is not eloquent and he is not empathetic.

Period and end of story.

I admit I do not write about too many cold cases that I look at these days but every cop, military member, special agent, that I have spoken to, when asked about getting killed in the line of duty informs me rather proudly, “this is part of the job, it’s what I signed up for.”

 

President Trump Hosts Ceremony Recognizing First Responders In The June 14 Congressional Baseball Shooting

 

Trump is basically repeating what he has been told I am sure countless times.

 

mainstream-media-crimeshop

 

To the media who is making this into a mountain, STFU already and report news, actual news, not your bloody opinionated, one sided story, but some actual news.

If I am not mistaken, the United States is an entire country, other things are happening here that warrant some attention.

And by the way, this is the very same thing that the Russian’s accomplished with the fake news, the overhyped sensationalism of stories, the fake social media accounts.

Swaying public opinion.

They without a doubt whatsoever learned it from us, our media who has to get every little detail, sensationalize every little story, they learned from us.

 

In fact this is just like walking up and recording a police beat down without the benefit of having the back story and running with it and suddenly reporting a story about police brutality.

 

This is bias reporting.

 

Nice.

 

As for Trump, I actually support you if you shut down the mainstream media here, I watch it every single day and quite frankly it’s not news, it’s utterly sickening.

Report the news, not opinions, not experts that simply report what they think, because I can do that and a much better job of it, try sticking to reporting just the news.

I am actually quite skilled at forming my own opinion here.

CNN, WAPO, even FoxNews at times, should be labeled opinion pieces and not news.

At the end of the day if you actually watch the news they really reported on vs. opinionated story headlines, they are opinion broadcasts and not actual news.  

They do what I do, only not quite as well because I call it exactly how I see it and right now I am seeing Trump’s point to calling them fake news broadcasters.

He is right.

A tag line the news often says, is that they are “reporting news that affects me.”

 

us-election-russia-hack-crimeshop

 

My message back is that you are not, you are trying to sway my opinion just like Russia is accused of doing.

How can we support imposing sanctions upon Russia for attempting to sway public opinion when we sit back and allow our own media to take an actual newsworthy report and turn it into a circus just to sway public opinion?

Stop Sensationalizing!

Talk about double standards.

Donald Trump Viciously Attacked – By Members of Media

donald-trump-losing-CrimeShop.jpg

Donald Trump’s War with Mainstream Media, Going To Far?

 

This weekend has not been kind to Donald Trump as far as the media is concerned.

 

New York Daily News: “As American citizen drink from streams and stand in lines for ice, gas and food, President Trump says ‘they want everything to be done for them.’ Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Response? ‘You’re going straight to hell.’”

CNN: “Trump sent 18 tweets on Puerto Rico on Saturday. And Made things a whole lot worse.”

The Associated Press: “Trump dismisses ingrates who’ve questioned his administration’s commitment to rebuilding Puerto Rico”

The Hill: “Trump dedicates golf trophy to hurricane victims as millions struggle in Puerto Rico.”

USA: Trump slams fake news and politically motivated ingrates for criticizing Puerto Rico aid efforts.”

CNN: Trump’s whiplash weekend heightens questions over leadership.”

The Washington Post: “Trump attacks mayor of San Juan, ratcheting up tensions over crisis in Puerto Rico.”

CNN: “Donald Trump’s last 7 days are just mind-bogglingly bad.”

 

trump-vs-mainstream-media-Crime_Shop.jpg

 

The list of news headlines and stories bashing Trump over this past weekend is both vast and long.

Donald Trump is definitely taking a beating, and it’s not looking very good or could it simply be nothing more than just another painted picture?

I pose this question because on Friday as I watched CNN live and what I a witnessed was not the headlines CNN is attempting to sell it’s public.

So on Friday morning as I was getting in that 4am workout, sipping coffee and GO FAST, I watched CNN do something along the lines of Russian election interference fashion.

During the newscast, CNN played an interview from Thursday where acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke told reporters she was “very satisfied” with the federal response since Maria made landfall, calling it a “good news story.”

 

carmen yulin cruz_Donald Trump-Crimeshop.JPG

 

Then cut to commercial and once back a live interview with Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz of San Juan where the CNN news anchor informed Carmen about what Elaine Duke said, in particular about the federal response being a “good news story.”

Carmen became quite upset at hearing this, as one could imagine. I would be if I had been told what Elaine had said in the same context that the anchor informed Carmen about it.

CNN did take what Elaine said out of context in a very clear effort to stir the pot and get people pissed at Trump and his administration. They sold Carmen part of the story without ever touching on the stories entirety.

It was rather vulgar and disgusting.

 

donald-trump-lashes-out-at-fake-news-media-crimeshop.jpg

 

While I am not Trump’s biggest fan, I am also not a fan of all of these reports about Russia stirring the race pot, or all of the other pots, with fake news, fake social media ad’s and accounts simply because you can turn on the evening news and watch that same behavior coming from the inside.  

Our very own mainstream media organizations incite and inspire hate, loathing, and more division than Russia ever could have or did during the 2016 Presidential Election.

Trump has every right to be angry with the mainstream media after this past weekend, while he is an absurd little man who sometimes behaves and acts much like a half wit, the media if it were about real news would man up and show some class, at the very least rather than woefully and purposefully go out of it’s way to cause individuals to become angry with Trump and his administration.

And everyone keeps wondering just how Russia got its ammunition.

Russia Successful at Dividing America?

russia-fake-social-media-CrimeShop.jpg

Russia – Serves up The Perfect Election Weapon

I continue to see these headlines with regards to Russia dividing Americans through fake social media accounts.

us-election-russia-hack-crimeshop

This morning CNN went on and on about the social media account that was found on both Twitter and Facebook under the name of “Blacktivist” which CNN dubbed a fake “black” activist account.

Okay fair enough however, when using words to describes things such as “black” or “white” you are by default stirring that social tension pot. Why not simply say something along the lines of “We found this activist site that the Russian’s created so as to cause even more racial tension and divide with regards to law enforcement here in america.”

See how much more classy that sounds?

While I don’t doubt that Russia did create that particular account, what caused the problem is still the problem. The media describes the fake account as a “black” activist account.

It’s a fake activist account. End of story. Viewers could clearly see what the accounts were when CNN posted images of the accounts posts.

america-the-divided-crimeshop

We were already a nation that was divided though and CNN should probably check its facts before skirting them and making it sound as if Russia really made the racial divide here in america worse.

It was already a boiling pot that was going to boil over on it’s own at any moment.

We already had racial tensions brewing with even more tensions brewing where law enforcement was concerned.

russia-kremlin-crimeshop

All Russia did was capitalize on our nation’s problems in order to gain more knowledge about us and where our heads were.

And by problems, it was all that, we all advertised, whether it was the mainstream media or individuals on social media posting things, we all advertised precisely what Russia exposed and capitalized on during the election.

russia-tampers-with-us-election-crimeshop

I also keep hearing this, particularly on CNN, “how did they know who to target?”

This morning was another spit out my coffee or choke laughing moment. A reporter on CNN asked a guest something to the effect of, “How did they know who to target, was it perhaps one of those calls placed to you where you were asked who they could market something like this to?”

CNN, the sky did not fall here, do you guys even read or watch the news at all? Do you even know what you are reporting on, on a daily basis or do you block that from your fragile egos, I mean minds at the end of the day and forget about it?

social-media-policing-crimeshop

What’s more, do you go onto social media at all?

Does CNN or any other media outlet actually pay attention to things other than themselves?

It is not rocket it science here.

mainstream_media_crimeshop.jpg

Russia knew who to target and what parts of the country in large part no thanks to mainstream media, second to that by actually looking at what people post from around this country on social media sites, including Reddit where anyone can read all of the forums without having to create an actual account and friend or follow someone.

Social Media Logotype Background

I wrote about this two nights ago, Russia knew who to target because here in america, we american’s expose our own secrets to everyone through social media, the mainstream media reports on speculation and opinion as if they were fact and they ask people really personal information and/or learn that really personal information and expose it. 

Really CNN, how do you think they figured out who to target. I’ve never heard a more ridiculous question being asked over and over again, in my life.

Nothing in the news is really news these days, so while CNN said over and over again this morning too, “you can’t get your news from social media”, the last time I checked, we couldn’t get our news from CNN either.

I heard over 45 minutes of pretty much speculation this morning, the guests to CNN? CNN was asking hypothetical questions and interjecting their own opinions, and nothing really got answered, what I did not hear a lot of was actual factual news aside from Puerto Rico, yet still the CNN anchors filled those moments with speculative questions that tend to go unanswered which leaves viewers to speculate further and then rumors start…

Russia didn’t make shit up here, they simply exposed the worst of each of us and utilized that to their advantage.

All of the fake ad’s, the fake news, the activist accounts, they were all based off of actual facts, things that were already happening here in america, things that people were already talking about, speculating about and in some cases spreading rumors as fact about.

Russia was able to figure out, which was not a secret CNN, nor was it a secret, that american’s were already divided, they used that division among us in order to sway the election.

But was that really the only goal?

Not by a long shot.

Russia was able to expose america truly expose our every weakness from the inside out, to the world.

Modern Keyboard With Colored Social Network Buttons.

People post and share everything across multiple social media accounts, we overshare information, we discuss openly our true feelings on forums where we never have to meet the other people we are chatting with. You never know who is on the other end.

mainstream-media-crimeshop

The media has overplayed the fact that we have all of this racial division, police shooting unarmed young individuals and beating them and the media were the one’s that drilled into our heads the very idea of the wording “Unarmed, young black man.” the media also overplayed the drug epidemics that are sweeping our nation, doctors prescribing opiods like skittles, impoverished parts of our own country that we ignore while at the same time looking down our noses at for instance impoverished nations such as North Korea, the cost of living in some housing markets is so high that people have to share studio apartments with multiple people, where is big brother helping on that one? Oh wait, they are more concerned with access to Americans private email, cell phones and private data, access to social media accounts…go see Russia because they were able to obtain that, am I right? Health care in this nation is a complete and utter joke, our politicians take advantage of the system far more than any citizen, the rich get away with murder while the poor suffer the consequences 3x’s over for a simple shoplifting, you get the point, as the list could go on for days.

Thanks mainstream media, I was paying attention…but I wasn’t the only one or so it would appear. The media in this country tends to turn the news into something that it was never intended to be, entertainment. Everything is a huge, dramatic story that plays out for days on end.

We were an open book and the media played a much bigger role in that than they desire to admit, however along with that, each of us who are on social media, forums of any kind and the like bare some of that blame as well because we too overexposed our true feelings, our problems in this nation, and how we felt about those problems. Speculation, rumor and fact, we let it all out and really did kid ourselves into thinking that no one was paying attention, or at the least, that no one would ever think to use it against us.

And, if you were to push, dig and try to learn more, you might learn that the election was not the only goal here.

Our intelligence agencies should at the very least know that. Russia is far from finished here.

Russia-fake-social-media-crimeShop

Russia ladies and gentlemen, really just used what was going on here in a truly remarkable way and bitch slapped us with it, and hard.

Russia created and deployed the most unexpected weapon that has ever been created and with expert precision, they used it against us, even though we were one mass of multiple moving targets.  

They didn’t kill a single soul in the process. They didn’t have to.

Vladimir Putin

It was pure genius.

The other night I said that Russia couldn’t have done it any better, and that is hands down fact.

Russia to America – We Know Your Citizens Better Than Your Government Does

facebook-mark-zuckerberg-russia-sponsored-ads-crimeshop.jpg

Mark Zuckerberg & his Facebook Russian Troll Farm Woes

 

Does anyone remember last year when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg vowed to put an end to fake news on Facebook? I do, but as a woman one might expect that, always bringing up the good old days to toss it back in your face, at just the right moment.

Vladimir Putin

 

Perhaps Mark should have been more focused on all of those accounts that they identified on 9/6/17, that appeared to have had $100,000 in ad spending (the number could be much higher) from June of 2015 to May of 2017 that in fact, violated its policies, and were found to be linked to a Russian trolling farm…that was backed by the Russian Government.

mark-zuckerberg_crimeshop.jpg

 

Bravo Mark…bravo.

So now Mark seems a wee bit lost here, he went from full on denial to being open to “reviewing” proposed legislation should it pique his subtle interest.

Overall, Facebook had several opportunities to catch this and deal with it, long before it made headline news, like back in 2015.

The problems were:

Blatant Denial

Lack of Staff

Searching for any type of related ads

Taking our then President a bit more seriously

Having the ability to suck it up and take the blame gracefully

Stop blaming automated algorithms (Facebook’s favorite scapegoat), and just suck it up and take responsibility

 

facebook-crimeshop.jpg

 

Many are wondering and asking how Russia figured out who to target with these ads?

 

Social Media Logotype Background

 

Well, that is actually a pretty easy one. Russia, they knew what the average american dreamed of and wanted in terms of the perfect balance of its government and it’s people.

 

crimeshop_Social Media.jpg

 

We could spend all day and night trying to guess as to how they knew that, but the honest truth is, has anyone taken a walk through social media lately?

It’s an open book into what american’s think, feel, how we live, what we want, what we desire, our hopes, dreams, information about our interpersonal relationships, how we feel about our jobs, and how we feel about our government, what we would like to see it doing.

What we dislike about the government, a candidate, what we speculate, the rumor mill…you name it, I could go all day with this list.

The point is, that if I can see that within the first 5 minutes of being on any social media account that I have, so can everyone else, and it matters very little who you friend, block, unfriend. Things are shared whether you like it or not.

And let us not forget our own media here in the US, they tend to spread as much misinformation as they possibly can, rarely do a correction story, bring on “experts” to talk about what they think is going on and in general, report speculation and opinion as if they were facts.

It would not have taken much or long for the Russian’s to figure out just what type of fake news or ad’s it sponsored much less who to target.

All of that said, it does not negate the fact that people do not buy into what they do not believe or want to believe.

So many bought into the fake news and all of those fake ad’s because deep down, it was truly something they wanted to believe in.

You cannot package it any better than Russia did here.

They knew the American people better than our own government did at the time and I am willing to bet, that they still do.
