Pushback with Aaron Maté
A new Senate Intelligence Committee report accuses the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian troll farm, of using “social media to conduct an information warfare campaign” against the United States. This comes one week after the U.S. imposed new sanctions on the IRA and its funder, Yevgeny Prigozhin. What is the IRA, and are the claims of a Russian influence campaign against the U.S. well-founded? Aaron Maté and journalist Jefferson Morley of “The Deep State” blog debate and discuss.
Guest: Jefferson Morley, journalist, author, and editor of The Deep State, a blog about intelligence agencies.
