Haven’t you heard? The Russians did it.
Seemingly behind every major news event in the last number of years, Russia has been busy influencing world events simply by reporting on them, just like everyone else. And as RT notes, this, according to Assange, is key, as outlined in his three-point strategy on Friday.
First, “Pick a globally newsworthy event” which the Russian press “will also be reporting it by definition.”
Second, “Write story: Russian state secretly behind globally newsworthy event as proved by their press reporting it.”
And finally “Profit!”

1) Pick random globally newsworthy event.
Russian press will also be reporting it by definition.
2) Write story: Russian state secretly behind globally newsworthy event as proved by their press reporting it.
Assange’s comments echo that of The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald who, on September 28, reported on the demise of “yet another major Russia story” that most major US media outlets ran with as fact, despite the lack of any evidence whatsoever.
