Updated at 2:30 p.m. ET on February 10, 2020.

One day last fall, I sat down to create a new Facebook account. I picked a forgettable name, snapped a profile pic with my face obscured, and clicked “Like” on the official pages of Donald Trump and his reelection campaign. Facebook’s algorithm prodded me to follow Ann Coulter, Fox Business, and a variety of fan pages with names like “In Trump We Trust.” I complied. I also gave my cellphone number to the Trump campaign, and joined a handful of private Facebook groups for MAGA diehards, one of which required an application that seemed designed to screen out interlopers.

The president’s reelection campaign was then in the midst of a multimillion-dollar ad blitz aimed at shaping Americans’ understanding of the recently launched impeachment proceedings. Thousands of micro-targeted ads had flooded the internet, portraying Trump as a heroic reformer cracking down on foreign corruption while Democrats plotted a coup. That this narrative bore little resemblance to reality seemed only to accelerate its spread. Right-wing websites amplified every claim. Pro-Trump forums teemed with conspiracy theories. An alternate information ecosystem was taking shape around the biggest news story in the country, and I wanted to see it from the inside.


The story that unfurled in my Facebook feed over the next several weeks was, at times, disorienting. There were days when I would watch, live on TV, an impeachment hearing filled with damning testimony about the president’s conduct, only to look at my phone later and find a slickly edited video—served up by the Trump campaign—that used out-of-context clips to recast the same testimony as an exoneration. Wait, I caught myself wondering more than once, is that what happened today?

As I swiped at my phone, a stream of pro-Trump propaganda filled the screen: “That’s right, the whistleblower’s own lawyer said, ‘The coup has started …’ ” Swipe. “Democrats are doing Putin’s bidding …” Swipe. “The only message these radical socialists and extremists will understand is a crushing …” Swipe. “Only one man can stop this chaos …” Swipe, swipe, swipe.

You won't see that on Fox News. They are contributors to the DISINFORMATION campaign.

There are some of us (unlike you) that don’t let the msm mold our every thought.

I know it’s bad on my part but I do take pleasure in knowing you’re an absolutely miserable TDS suffering loser.

Hey jaggoff I don’t listen to trump, dgaf what he says, don’t have twitter or any of that other bullshit you gobble the fuck up like a starving catfish.

I can guarantee you listen to more of that shit than I do because I don’t give a fuck.

You sit around in your hovel throwing tantrums because you’re a fucking loser that can’t deal with reality and blame your failures on everyone but the guy in the mirror.

I’m too busy working (got a 25k bonus and 3.5% raise today) and being constructive to piss away that much time and effort on this nonsense.

But you carry on, you’ll be at 70k senseless posts in no time.

What do you call the spoonfed lies, conspiracy theories and bullshit disinformation that comes from the likes of McKay Coppins, the millennial far-left bombthrower and anti-Trump extraordinaire who writes reams of liberal crap for The Atlantic, including this piece?

All you've accomplished is bolstering your own TDS (or paid-to-have TDS) because I promise you've never convinced anyone here. Not one person on this forum who would have pulled the lever for Trump has been convinced otherwise as the result of 60,000+ posts on your behalf and the other forum communists. What a shame when you consider the time you spent doing so, time you could have spent with your family, attending a race or racing something yourself - hell, anything. A 100 percent big fat FAIL that will only continue if you don't get off those hate-Trump websites. There's life out there, Horner, other than who's going to be President in 2020. See if you can find it.

Exactly. Op's article is pure propaganda.aka bullshit. We like several including Trump Don jr etc. And they hardly ever pop up in our feed.Now the liberal bullshit that's a different story. Surely Facebook isn't doing that on purpose.LOL
