Iowahawk explains Russian “hacking”

1/ John Podesta, like 100% of everyone who has ever had a email account, received a password phishing email. He fell for it.

2/ According to some accounts, the phishing email had Russian fingerprints/ characteristics in its metadata.

3/ whatever the case, the password purloiners downloaded his emails, which eventually got into the hands of Wikileaks, who made them public.

4/ The emails were mildly embarrassing, revealing frequent circle jerking between the DNC and journalists. Mostly embarrassing to media.

5/ At the time of their release (Oct) they were hardly covered by any media, and largely dismissed as a big fat nothingburger.

6/ Not one of the people whose emails were revealed has ever disputed their authenticity or provenance.

7/ Fast forward to December. The October nothingburger has now magically transformed into “vote hacking” and “election hacking.”

8/ new narrative: treasonous Trump operatives conspired with Putin to hypnotically mesmerize Clinton voters into pulling the wrong lever.

9/ This is not Alex Jones or angry conspiracy kook Facebook uncles, it’s the NYTs, the WaPo, our beloved State Radio.

10/ how effective has this been? If polls are to be believed, 50%+ of Democrats believe the Russians literally modified vote tallies.

11/ none of this is a defense of Trump, or his garbage kleptocrat pal Putin. It’s an indictment of our garbage narrative-driven media.

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) December 30, 2016

12/ it shouldn’t have to take a drunk internet nobody to point any of this out, but hey, here we are.
