This is about articles written in U.S. media about convicted tax fraudster and conman William Browder.
Every article has links to evidence that proves the stories are wrong. The writers were sent the evidence and links and uniformly did not reply. Except the Cypriot, who wrote a piece correcting what he had wrong, which was everything Browder told him!
There’s a lot out there about social media and other institutions going after “fake news.” Will they go after this fake news? I have asked and get no response from sites such as Snopes. Because the attack on fake news is political, targeted, and it does not look at fake news challenging U.S. foreign policy. Do you think any of the “disinformation” groups will look at the “fake news” below?
No, because “fake news” that mirrors a U.S. government line is accepted as true.
It starts with BuzzFeed, which routinely writes everything about the Browder Magnitsky story wrong. At a certain point, you know they are not stupid, it is deliberate. (Ignore any lines through the urls, they all work.)
Note that BuzzFeed promoted the Steele Dossier against Trump, which has now been proved to be a fake and led to arrests of some of the perpetrators.

Sorry, can’t stop at twenty, they keep coming!
FT, AP, Reuters promote Wm Browder’s Big Lie about Magnitsky Hoax https://www.thekomisarscoop.com/2021/07/ft-ap-reuters-promote-wm-browders-big-lie-about-magnitsky-hoax/
The latest: NYTimes Dealbook repeats William Browder’s Magnitsky hoax. I ask major media “fact checkers” to deal with it. https://www.thekomisarscoop.com/2022/04/nytimes-dealbook-repeats-william-browders-magnitsky-hoax-i-ask-major-media-fact-checkers-to-deal-with-it/
And here’s another from Fox News: https://www.thekomisarscoop.com/2022/10/dear-paul-best-of-fox-news/
The only journalist who checked out the sources and acknowledged he was wrong was a Cypriot, writing in Sept 2018. Most media, alas, are happy to write lies.
Please tell me about disinformation! The U.S. media invented it. And the so-called fact-checking anti-disinformation sites all ignore this easily refuted “urban legend.” Appears that at a time of neo-McCarthyism, they fear challenging the U.S. government’s Russophobic line.
