As The Daily Beast reports, the pro-Clinton Super PAC Correct the Record “is pledging to spend $1 million to “push back against” users on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and Instagram.” The project claims that it has already “addressed more than 5,000 people that have personally attacked Hillary Clinton on Twitter” and it’s going to do a lot more of this on other social networks.
In other words, paid shills, trolls, to fire back at anyone who says anything negative on social media about Hillary. Wow, I thought only repressive regimes did this stuff!
Isn’t it a form of disguised advertising really? And shouldn’t the law require the comment be disclosed as being paid for by Hillary’s SuperPAC? Even still, it definitely feels very dirty.
