There was a thread on FR Just before the last election about this. Don’t have any idea how to find it.
How does it discredit them? It really defines them.
My local paper (CourierPress, Evansville, Indiana) has had paid trolls for years. It’s obvious when they have names that include clues like “Kstreet” etc. This is smart, but evil, and it needs to be exposed, destroyed, and buried.
from one main media website I make comments on
it has become clear to me this past year that the
Obama WH has an entire army of media trolls
working every media form and forum possible
they can be detectable and often are
because their indovtrination and training
results in a common form, style and key-word-set
of political speach with the Obama WH policy
position clearly less than one-degree of separation
between its official language and theirs
Yep, they been around since Satan started to lie.
Check out this face book page!!! It is not going well for Obamacare!!!
RE “Does it also pay “trolls” to disrupt civil debate in the comment sections of conservative websites?”
Something about that phrase makes me think of the 2012 GOP primary here LOL
“We already know that Democrat activists illegally censor constitutionally protected free speech by pulling fire alarms when conservatives speak on college campuses; are they using similar stunts on the internet?”
One more time.
Only government(s) can CENSOR.
These little pukes can illegally disrupt the speeches, but they cannot censor.
Fake phoney fraud like the rest of the democrat party.
Well, well, well. What do we have here?
If you go to the Healthcare.gov Facebook page, you can tell who the paid trolls are. But they're out-numbered 1000-1.
The answer is a resounding Yes.
I know that Doug Hagmann and CanadaFreePress are persona non grata here, but his article in January outlined the entire concept of operations.
The "Cyber Warriors For Obama" project kicked off in January, with funding directly from the Odinga campaign coffers. They have social media mapped, infiltrated, and compromised.
This is just the beginning.
Wait until the “success” stories of the “navigators” start rolling out...
Aren’t present day journalists also called paid Democrat Trolls
Fortunately, there are way too many veteran freepers for them to last too long here. They get boxed in and sniffed out pretty quickly. And remember, they also use a version of the "Diamond Technique" here and on other sites, where two or more trolls "agree" with each other and actually manage to shout down the unsuspecting.
Bottom line: Veteran freepers, do not be bashful about calling out the scumbags. And the "sign up" date, while being helpful, is not always a telltale sign. Some trolls signed up long, long ago.
I myself signed up on Democrat Underground when it first started just so nobody else there would take my handle. A few years later I went back to check it out (I think for Schadenfreude purposes), laughed at the big topic of the day (have no recollection what it was) and posted three posts before I got "tombstoned". One poster there said, "Wow. You signed up five years ago just to get thrown out now?" Of course, I didn't bother to hide my dsitain for those animals.
