Benjamin Cohen was falsely accused of the Bondi Junction stabbings. Here's how the lie spread around the world

Tl;Dr: Pro-Russian and Anti-Semitic social media accounts work to develop and spread a false narrative that was picked up by major tv news stations. The piece is well worth a read for their inference of how the Russian operatives operate in social media by planting the falsehoods out in created minor accounts that they then "pick up" and spread to the world while keeping at arms length using caveats of unconfirmed reports that they likely started

For 14 hours over the weekend, Sydney university student Ben Cohen was one of the most reviled men on the internet after he was falsely accused of being the knifeman who went on a stabbing rampage in a Sydney shopping centre, killing six people.

The ABC has pieced together how anti-semitic and pro-Kremlin accounts turned Mr Cohen into an internet villain.

The trail was uncovered using social media analysis, datasets provided by disinformation experts, archives provided by anti-fascist research group the White Rose Society, as well as interviews with Mr Cohen, his family and the accounts spreading false claims about him.

...

An account called "Sonny Dan", which has 37 followers and has a history of reposting anti-Jewish images and content from self-described misogynist Andrew Tate, makes a false and racist claim.

"Unconfirmed report- Terror attack in Bondi. Terrorist name is BENJAMIN COHEN. A radical Jew from Bondi Sydney," the account posts.

"Only a Jew would stab a baby. Making sense now."

The account did not respond to the ABC's questions.

Dr Jones, who is forensically examining the false claims around the Bondi attack, says there are several signs that "Sonny Dan" was part of a broader propaganda operation, which typically uses unknown accounts to give desired political outcomes the "veneer of an authentic grassroots" effort.

These indicators included the account's low follower count, lack of authentic connection to any location, and a limited post history.

"Random anonymous accounts are sometimes set up for the purposes of implementing influence operations," Dr Jones says.

" starts seeding the narrative through these burner accounts then have them picked up by large accounts."

History Trust SA launches campaign to restore long-lost Priscilla, Queen of the Desert bus




For years, staff at the History Trust of South Australia searched for the bus which after shooting on 'Priscilla' wrapped in 1993, was used by Australian band the Whitlams as a touring bus in 1994, and then disappeared.

The case of the missing piece of Australian cinematic history was solved in 2019, when a man contacted the History Trust to say he had the bus on his property in New South Wales and was willing to sell it.

I've sold a few of these shirts in the last week; bin chickens must be in the news somewhere.

I checked and Adelaide is on the edge of the Australian white ibis range, so you just squeaked in. I was getting set to compare you to those Asian companies who do bad translations of American culture.

Never mind that Adelaide is an Australian Rules Football town. Their team is the Crows so I suppose an ibis would be a good match for rugby. Rugby League, not Rugby Union, of course.
