See the fake Facebook ads Russians ran on Clinton, guns, race, Christianity

02 November 2017

Though the small number of ads made public make it hard to confirm that the ads are a "representative sampling", as Democrats on the committee claim, those released shore up reporting about Russia's efforts to stoke American voters' fears of their Muslim, black and Latino neighbors. In one case, one of the ads - a video parodying Donald Trump - targeted blacks who also are interested in BlackNews.com, HuffPost Politics or HuffPost Black Voices.

During its hearing, the House Intelligence Committee officially released a sampling of Facebook ads and Twitter handles tied to the Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency.

Numerous ads released Wednesday came from Facebook pages whose Russian ties were previously reported by CNN, including "Blacktivist", a page created to look like it was run by black American activists, and "Heart of Texas", a page supporting the secession of Texas.

This is one of the Russian Facebook ads meant to stir dissension in the U.S. Verto also reported that Instagram added more than 15 million more users, based on Verto App Watch data on US adults age 18 and older, marking an 11.6% increase from June to September. It was targeted to places around the USA, including Ferguson, Missouri, the place where one of the people featured in the ad, Michael Brown, lived and died.

The Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman explained that Russians organized a Heart of Texas rally and a concurrent United Muslims of America counterprotest on the same day at the same location in Houston. Trump on the other hand, may not be a "saint", but "he's at least an honest man and he cares deeply for this country". Among those targeted with the ad were those who liked Gun Rights, National Rifle Association and The Second Amendment.
