A hardline neoconservative operative at the German Marshall Fund think tank — which is funded by the US and German governments — said that, with the mass purge of alternative media outlets, "we are just starting to push back... this is just the beginning"

The DC-based think tank the German Marshall Fund—whose Alliance for Securing Democracy helped popularize the absurd "Russian bots are hacking our democracy" scare—just so happens to be funded by NATO and the US and German governments. Funny how that works

Welp, the Integrity Initiative — yet another "monitoring group" that tracks "disinformation" supposedly spread by Russia to destroy Western "democracy" — just admitted that it is funded by the UK government. So this is officially British disinformation

So this means both the Alliance for Securing Democracy and the Integrity Initiative are bankrolled by Western governments. What other prominent groups monitoring "disinformation" and "protecting democracy" (by blaming all our problems on Russia) are also funded by Western govs?

UK government-funded fake "monitoring group" the Integrity Initiative is retweeting some of the most prominent Syria regime-change trolls, anarcho-neocons, and pro-imperialist pseudo-"socialists," as they attack anti-war journalists These are effectively UK gov-sponsored attacks

This UK government-funded, bogus McCarthyite "monitoring group" the Integrity Initiative repeatedly smeared Jeremy Corbyn, while it claims to "defend democracy against disinformation." These are effectively state-sponsored attacks on Corbyn and the left.

The British media reported on how the government-funded Integrity Initiative attacked Corbyn and Labor. I first reported this here, and British media outlets cited the exact same tweets I drew attention to — although they didn't credit me, like usual

The Guardian's report cites the Sunday Mail, whose "exclusive" Dec. 9 report cites the exact same tweets I first reported above on Nov. 26/27 Those of us who work in independent media are used to having our reporting used by corporate media without credit
