Russian ads focused overwhelmingly on race

The biggest thing I get out of this analysis is that especially given how xenophobic the Russians are, these ads were aimed at sowing division and fears and triggering the emotions of the demographic more drawn to the now Republican President rather than overt anti-Hillary, pro-Trump ads.



Quote:
"We read every one of the 3,517 Facebook ads bought by Russians. Their dominant strategy: Sowing racial discord," report USA Today's Nick Penzenstadler, Brad Heath and Jessica Guynn.

The big picture: "Of the roughly 3,500 ads published this week [by the House Intelligence Committee], more than half about 1,950 made express references to race. Those accounted for 25 million ad impressions a measure of how many times the spot was pulled from a server for transmission to a device."

By the numbers:
"At least 25% of the ads centered on issues involving crime and policing, often with a racial connotation. Separate ads, launched simultaneously, would stoke suspicion about how police treat black people in one ad, while another encouraged support for pro-police groups."

"Divisive racial ad buys averaged about 44 per month from 2015 through the summer of 2016 before seeing a significant increase in the run-up to Election Day. "

This is interesting: "An additional 900 [race-related spots] were posted after the November election through May 2017."

"Only about 100 of the ads overtly mentioned support for Donald Trump or opposition to Hillary Clinton."

It really doesn't matter what the Russians post, unless one doesn't have the ability to make one's own decisions or is lacking in a basic knowledge of World History.

Well, in fact what is worse is when a significant portion of the electorate swallows fake news whole. Them alternative facts just ruin a country.

The Russians actually sponsored political gatherings during the campaign that your brilliant cohorts attended.

I read perfectly

They spread discourse. they had ads Pro Hillary Anti Hillary Pro Trump anti Trump.. but the majority of ads were to create discourse between races and Conservatives and Liberals.

out of 3000+ ads 100 were pro trump.

I agree, that's exactly what the Donald has been saying since his nomination.
