    1. I read that and I had some Hill people shove it down my throat

    yes a lot of people look at bad data, and it does not cancel out that Hillary campaign had David Brock deliberately lying.  But it was not limited to Sanders pages, it was everywhere against all candidates, sheesh,  I see this a\s just anotehr excuse to blame Sanders for their loss instead of looking at why they lost. and what they could have done better,. Man these people work hard at not looking at the real problems.

    2. This article is an elaborate piece of fake news itself.

    It is essentially a “Russia did it!” article with a little “Macedonia” thrown in for color.  Its premise is that Bernie Sanders supporters were duped by fake news sites into not supporting Hillary in the GE.

    As we used to say in the ’60s, ‘twenty lashes with a wet noodle’ for Ryan Grim, Jason Cherkis and Huffington Post.  I won’t suggest anything harsher as punishment because free speech.  But I will say that the CIA, the DNC and other anti-Russia warmongers are working overtime to convince us that we have been brainwashed by Vladimir Putin.

    3. Having admined several Facebook groups during the Primary season for Berners,

    What this article says in regards to bs websites is absolutely true in my experience. Do I think the “Russians did it”? No. But they did trace back to a few of the same names, often to Eastern Europe. I think they used these sites to make money more than anything.

    4. Just looking at the title, I thought this must be about

    the claim Bernie Sanders’s pictures from the Civil Rights era weren’t him or about “chair throwing” delegates in Nevada, etc.. But it was about other fake news.
