Congress releases every Russian Facebook ad that ran during election - Axios
House lawmakers released the thousands of Facebook ads Russian operatives used to sow division in the U.S. before and after the 2016 election, ranging from blatant political messages to lighthearted memes.

Why it matters: Americans have heard for months about the Russian ad campaign — from political leaders, the media and office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller — but they haven’t been able to see its full breadth until now.

How to stop the spread of disinformation @ Internet Citizen (Mozilla)
The truth is out there. But online, it feels like it’s harder than ever to find. Consider this sobering statistic from a recent MIT study: on Twitter, lies are 70% more likely to be retweeted than facts. Somehow, the information age became the disinformation age. Where do we go from here?

When does Russian propaganda work — and when does it backfire? Here’s what we found. - The Washington Post
Assuming that Russia knows how its propaganda affects its audience, we might be able to figure out what it was trying to do in the U.S. election.

But if Russia spread its biased messages broadly, that would suggest its goal was increasing U.S. political polarization, making it harder for U.S. democracy to function smoothly.
