Romania and its allies decided it would be hilarious fun to publish some incendiary fake news about Pridnestrovie this week.
Watchdog has an interesting governing board that includes representatives of the Soros Foundation (you know, the group that illegally tried to take over the government of Moldova), Romanian citizens, and employees of US-funded organizations.
Honestly, it mostly makes me laugh (but it also makes me a bit angry) when I read clickbait shit like Russia Perfecting Its Elections Interference Toolkit in Moldova.
The headline sets you up to hear about some really dastardly deeds being perpetrated by Russia, but the jock who wrote this sadly fails to deliver.
George Orwell once said: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on the human face, forever.” What does Orwell mean in this quote?
Week after week, month after month, year after year, it’s exactly the same. The bulk of everything you have ever heard or seen about Moldova in the news is more or less paid propaganda. It might be well-written (although it often isn’t), it may be based on facts, and it may be persuasive, but it sure as hell isn’t independent.
