Bummer! I Fail to Make Wash. Post’s List of Russian Agents

damn-lies-_92457284_newspaperThe Washington Post published a breathless front-page piece today alleging that Russia is behind a fake news barrage that corrupts U.S. democracy. I didn’t make the list but many places that have posted my writings did – Counterpunch, Antiwar.com, Infowars, LewRockwell, Ron Paul Institute, Daily Bell, We Are Change, etc. Happily, the Post article – which was based on shaky anonymous sources – is being shot to pieces by savvy media critics.

I guess I’ll have to try harder next year to make the Post Thanksgiving Foreign Agent List.

Actually, as far as being a Russian agent – I don’t even like vodka.

UPDATE: Glenn Greenwald & Ben Norton of The Intercept just posted the best rebuttal I have seen of the Post piece: “The Washington Post should be very proud: it staked a major part of its news story on the unverified, untestable assertions of this laughable organization.”

    Comrade, you should send Putin a bottle of vodka for Christmas so that he will not look unfavorably on you.
    At least you are affiliated with many of Russia’s better propaganda outlets. Perhaps it is for the best that
    they have not yet named you. In the event that the Clintonistas overturn the election of Putin’s man, then
    you will be well suited to infiltrate as your name is not on the list.

      Not only this slight, but I also did not get an invitation to the TSA Headquarters Christmas Party this year.

      I need to repent.

    Well of COURSE they didn’t name you. The list is all about alleged fake news.

    We only get the Real Stuff from you.

    Spasebo, Gospodin Bovard!

      Surprised the Post hasn’t backed off that stupid article – what a disgrace.
