Defense Intelligence Agnecy - Russia Military Power Report

Trolls. Russia employs a troll army of paid
online commentators who manipulate or
try to change the narrative of a given story
in Russia’s favor. Russia’s Troll Army, also
known as the Internet Research Agency, is
a state-funded organization that blogs and
tweets on behalf of the Kremlin.304 Trolls
typically post pro-Kremlin content and
facilitate heated discussions in the comments
sections of news articles. Their goal
is to counter negative media and “Western
influence.” While the goal of some trolls is
to simply disrupt negative content, other
trolls promote completely false content.305
• Bots. Another way Russia manipulates the
information space is through the use of bots.
Bots are automated pushers of content on
social media. These bots vary in sophistication
and can continuously push content or
imitate real life patterns. Bots can drown
out unwanted content or push a specific
message. Bots have the ability to overwhelm
the information space and discourage readers
from looking for real content.306, 307

The question is, how can the U.S. compete with this warfare? I guess we just have to be smart enough to know what's fake and what's the truth. So how much of what was published about Hillary was false?
