    Be careful with fake news. Many outlets are desperate to have viewers that they are willing to say or do anything.

      A bit like the "OMG millions of Russians infiltrated Facebook" scare. The story is basically that a Russian group trolled Black Lives Matter by telling Pokemon Go users that they would receive a prize if they went to important social justice sites and named their Pokemons after victims of police brutality.

      Amusing that the Torygraph says Russian "cyber experts" were behind this (because Russian hackers, amirite?). You don't need to be a hacker in order to troll BLM activists...

      Trumps done zilch for Russia other than deliver them some false hope as he repeated he wanted better relations during his campaign


      On the other hand...


      Trump seems to be doing Netanyahu's bidding with the Iran deal, yet the media wont even say it.
