Bloomberg Is Paying More Each Month for “Social Media Influencers” to Promote His Campaign Than Russia Paid for Internet Ads During Entire 2016 Election
Mike Bloomberg is reportedly paying “hundreds” of social media influencers $2,500 each month to promote him and his campaign online according to a new report in the Wall Street Journal.
We are looking at well over $250,000 each month for positive propaganda on social media.
Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign will reportedly pay hundreds of people $2,500 a month to promote the candidate via text message and their personal social media feeds.
The billionaire’s team is now hiring more than 500 “deputy digital organizers” to work up to 30 hours a week and promote his talking points to online friends and phone contact lists, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a staffer in California and internal documents.
The outreach is limited to California, which holds its presidential primary election on March 3, but could expand nationwide, The Journal reported.
Bloomberg is paying out more each month on election propaganda than Russia did during the entire 2016 election.
In November 2017 Facebook executive Colin Stretch told the US Senate Judiciary Committee that the total number of the Russian illegitimate ads are a drop in the ocean — less than 0.004 percent of all content — or about 1 in 23,000 news feed items.
The Democrat media still claim that Russia influenced the 2016 election with their ads — an absolute lie.
