The FBI is accusing Russia of trying to underrate Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Addressing the Congress, its director Christopher Ray said his biggest concern is a “steady drumbeat of misinformation” that could undermine confidence in the result of the 2020 election.
He said Russia is using social media to sow “divisiveness and discord” with the primary goal to denigrate Vice President Biden.
Macon Philips, a digital strategist for President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry who is now is founder of Starling Strategy, said: “Russia’s strategy… is to sow doubt and to deny the media and the public the ability to rationally work through what is happening in an election and in society.” [BBC NEWS]
