  2. The Propaganda About Russian Propaganda

Comment from a friend: "a colleague of mine at the University of Maryland, is a Professor of Practice in the School of Journalism and continues to write for the Post. The Post suspects that there is an organized effort by unnamed Russian “operatives" to flood the comments sections attached to political reporting. The suspicion arises out of certain patterns of language that the Post's Russian speaking correspondents allege is likely to come from a native Russian speaker."
