    WaPo, 11 Other US Media, Internet Companies Hired Russian IT Firm

    LOL Russia bad, except when the left us dealing with them. Hypocrisy at work.


    WaPo, 11 Other US Media, Internet Companies Hired Russian IT Firm


    A dozen major American media and Internet outlets hired a Russian company called EastBanc Technologies to help with IT and web services, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. The companies include The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, Slate, Facebook, AOL, Comcast and U.S. News & World Report.

    Former U.S. intelligence officers slammed the media companies for hypocrisy in retaining a Russian firm while criticizing others who have even tangential ties to Russians. They also considered their decision to trust their web back-end to a foreign-based company naive.

    “This clearly is a hypocrisy issue,” retired Col. James Waurishuk, a former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command and a senior national security analyst with the National Security Counsel under President George H.W. Bush, told TheDCNF. “All of the media companies have reported Trump and the Russian collusion story that all things Russians are bad. So why are they doing business with a Russian company?”

    Did the 11 hire the Russian IT firms to spread disinformation about or cause doubt in the news media's competitors?

    Talk about a tenuous connection.

    A company that writes a news story about the president, uses a Russian IT firm, and for some reason the things of right wingers are rubbing uncomfortably on their perineum.
