George Takei blames Russian bots for trying to ‘amplify’ sexual assault accusation


Except, he might be right about bots. Maybe not their origin.I can't find the podcast I listened to that talked about random, fake stories that were computer generated and then pushed out into the media. No malice, no purpose. Completely fake but still attracting clicks and eyeballs.

Here's something related, but not the program I was trying to find. This guy has a purpose but there are purposeless news generators that make noise in the media echo chamber and then it gets perpetuated.

Menacing Fliers Accuse Jackson Browne of Vast Conspiracy

One resident who received a flier observed to the Journal-Courier that "I would consider it a rant, rather than a threat to our safety," although that conclusion largely relies on the fact that he is not Jackson Browne.
 
 
"...the fliers profanely declared that the musician is the "head of the snake" in a vast Hollywood conspiracy to take down President Trump..."  "Vast Hollywood conspiracy" - geez, he hasn't been relevant in over 40 years (if ever); "head of the snake"?

Seems like a false flag to me, it would make absolutely no sense for Assad to do this at this point.

 

who knows

the thought process is:

why would assad do this with the peace talks scheduled for the next day/evening

it's practically political suicide for him to do something like this now

who benefits? the rebels

it's all speculation

i'm just concerned we will get sucked into some military action

(...) While aliens and fake moon landings probably trigger eyerolls in many of us, defining what constitutes a conspiracy theory is difficult, Brotherton says. The government, for example, does sometimes conspire to do the unspeakable, such as the infamous 1930s Tuskegee study, initiated by the US government to examine untreated syphilis in African-American men. Researchers blocked research participants from receiving penicillin or exiting the experiment to get treatment. The study continued until a media report made it public. In this case, believing that the government was conspiring to keep people sick would have been completely accurate.

There are characteristics that help differentiate a conspiracy theory from prudent paranoia, Brotherton says. Conspiracy theories tend to depend on conspirators who are unduly evil, he explains, with genocide or world domination as a motive. Conspiracy theories also tend to assign an usually high level of competency to the conspirators, Brotherton adds, pointing out that when the government really does “shady stuff” it often isn’t able to keep it secret.

Chances are, we all know someone who believes some version of a conspiracy theory, which is why psychologists have been trying to understand what makes someone jump from logically questioning the world to looking for signs of lizard teeth in public figures. Research has shown that feelings of powerlessness and uncertainty are associated with a tendency to believe in conspiracies, says Karen Douglas, professor of social psychology at the University of Kent in the UK. Or as Joseph E Uscinski, associate professor of political science at the University of Miami and author of American Conspiracy Theories, puts it, “conspiracies are for losers”.

Conspiracies are for losers ... people who are out of power use them to strategically close ranks, to salve their wounds

“I don’t mean it in the pejorative sense, but people who are out of power use conspiracy theories to strategically alert their side to danger, to close ranks, to salve their wounds,” Uscinski explains. “Think any election, the morning after, half the country says the election was rigged and the other half is happy.”

Believing in a conspiracy theory is one strategy people use to regain a sense of control, even if the conspiracy theory is unrelated to what caused the lack of control in a person’s life, Brotherton says. Conspiracy theories are a way for someone to understand what is going on in the world and try to restore some sense of control in his or her life, he explains. (...)
