indexImagine if you suddenly found out Twitter was secretly designed, sponsored, and paid for by the Chinese or, maybe even worse, by Vladimir Putin. Would you shrug it off, and just conclude they were trying to enhance our social communication?

Except for the ever-watchful Fox News,  this hasn’t made much of a stir yet, but once all the House and Senate committees that don’t seem to do anything but conduct hearings get hold of it I’m sure we’ll hear more.

I remember distinctly sitting in eighth grade social studies class learning what “propaganda” was, and feeling naively proud that our country didn’t do stuff like that.
