3 dumb Democrats say “Sputnik Radio” crushed Hillary’s campaign. “Sputnik Radio” started broadcasting June 2017

How stupid are American House Democrats?

Three House Democrats decided to write a letter to the FCC demanding an investigation into Sputnik Radio, “a radio network funded by the Russian government, was used as part of the Kremlin’s effort to influence the 2016 presidential election.”

Problem: Sputnik Radio didn’t even start broadcasting in the U.S. until June 2017.

According to the letter, signed by Representatives Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Mike Doyle (D-PA) and Frank Pallone (D-N.J), Sputnik Radio, “a radio network funded by the Russian government, was used as part of the Kremlin’s effort to influence the 2016 presidential election.” As such, these 3 democrats demand that the FCC launch an investigation into Sputnik Radio.

And while it may only seem ‘marginally stupid’ to suggest that propaganda from a Russian-operated radio station might outweigh the $1.2 billion that Hillary spent on her campaign and/or all of the propaganda spewed by the mainstream media, the argument goes full “criminally stupid” when you realize that Sputnik Radio didn’t even start broadcasting in the U.S. until June 2017 (which is about 8 months AFTER the 2016 presidential election…for anyone who may have missed the nuance there).

Excerpt from the letter penned by the very dumb three US government representatives…

We’re writing in response to recent troubling press reports that a radio network funded by the Russian government may have used U.S. airwaves to influence the 2016 presidential election. We ask that you investigate these troubling reports and apply all applicable laws and regulations to enforce the public interest standard for licensed stations that broadcast this network.

An article published by the New York Times Magazine (9/13/17) titled “RT, Sputnik and Russia’s New Theory of War” suggests that Sputnik, a radio network funded by the Russian government, was used as part of the Kremlin’s effort to influence the 2016 presidential election. In Washington, D.C., listeners can tune their radios to 105.5 FM to hear Sputnik and the Russian government’s effort to spread misinformation to influence U.S. policy and undermine our elections. This means the Kremlin’s propaganda is being broadcast over a license granted by the FCC and the Russian government may be using our country’s own airwaves to undermine our democracy.

The fake news New York Times’ original article (“RT, Sputnik and Russia’s New Theory of War“) even states that Sputnik Radio didn’t start until after the election. You would think that the three dumb Democrats would read the very article they cite.

It’s hard to imagine Russia’s state-backed media getting any traction in the United States if there wasn’t already an audience for it. For some subset of Americans, the intelligence report singling out RT and Sputnik was just another attack from the supposed “deep state” that Breitbart, for instance, had been fuming about for months — and it was less than surprising when, this spring, Sputnik hired a former Breitbart reporter, Lee Stranahan, to start a radio show in Washington. As Stranahan told The Atlantic, though his paycheck might now come from the Russians, “Nothing about it really affects my position on stuff that I’ve had for years now.”

They have TWO brain-cells between the THREE of them and they have to hand it around with the person who’s speaking deemed not to need a brain-cell because they just have to read off of the NeoCon TellePrompter. 🙂

Well, what do you expect from the Dumbamericunts. Their education level have fallen far behind any other Western countries: History 0 points, Geography 0 points, Foreign Languages 0 points …….

No wonder the USSA is the clown of the class.

I think they just don’t care, they’re using PR methodology : attack first, retractions mean nothing because the majority will always believe the first story.

This article is somewhat misleading–it’s true Sputnik wasn’t broadcasting in Washington, DC, but that’s just one station anyway. Most people listen to Sputnik via Internet streaming, which was active during the election. Granted, the Russophobes and their completely false stories of Russian interference in the election are barking at the moon anyway, but whether 105.5 was live during the election or not is a moot point.
