Skip to comments.THE NEXT BIG THING (liberal Media Matters hiring intern trolls)
Posted on 03/04/2010 9:27:19 AM PST by Mamzelle
Please read about Breitbart's opening salvo against John Podesta and Media Matters.
This is not paranoia. Media Matters, a Soros outfit, is hiring "interns" to come on conservative forums and try to sow division, slow down momentum, forment confusion. And they are better at it than they used to be. They don't curse and swear like liberals on their own forums do.
I’m thinking Peter Graves in Stalag 17.
Glad this sorta stuff doesn’t happen here at Free Republic.
Bring it on, libs. We'll keep the capacitors loaded for ya.
I have already seen this happen on this very forum.....
Thanks for the tip. This means we are winning.
Not a shock, reading some of the comments last night on the BS about Sarah having her own reality show, they came out in droves, I knew they were trolls, making nasty comments about her, I knew they were hired Daily Kos freaks
I’d guesss this will work up a few folks here, but will be ineffective have zero impact.
Yeah gotta love the “concern trolls” as C4P calls them, the ones that are “worried about what Sarah is doing, could be bad for her political career” yeah like they give a damn
They’re getting training at MSNBC!
Some of them have been laying low for a long time and would not be considered interns.
Yep!! You can tell by their idiotic rants they are MSNBC viewers..MSNBC should be so proud these loons represent them
And a few more embarassingly idiotic posters. I hope they are collecting their paycheck from Media Matters.
Ping! I think we’ve seen some of this already, maybe not paid trolls, but same effect.
I have, too. I’ve also been given phone #s and emails in private mail on FR from folks I hardly know. Strange. It’s almost like they want to ‘trace me’ or something. Nooooo likey.
I read that Kos managed to keep a tea party from organizing in some Lutheran church.
These creepy little mouthbreathers don't have anything else to do, in between surfing porn.
Big difference,FR has got AM or Admistrator Mods.
MMMMMMM, ZOT Capacitors!
It takes a brain to spot those without; and fortunately, most freepers have brains.
Hey, how much does it pay George? I could use the extra money. I tick off enough people around here already, may as well make a buck!
It is a dishonest tactic, so I expect no less from the EMOcrats.
The definition of intern is you don’t get paid.
Yeah. Ol’ Sarah gets them foaming at the mouth doesn’t she? Heh! Funny to watch. It’s almost like watching an exorcism where the demon(s) reveal themselves. LOL!
You’ve got the:
1. Jews are so stupid/evil gang
2. Protestants are evil gang
3. The various evolution/new earther nasty fights
Sometimes we do damage to ourselves because, like Obama, we want everything overnight.
Slow and steady is the key.
FR's real advantage is tens of thousands of posters with highly developed BS detectors, from years of reading and dissecting MSM 'reporting'.
Can we keep some record of IP ‘s? We could start with the aptly named Mr. Plant.
Yep, now I Know what the Daily Kooks web site is like, when they come here and bombard us with nasty posts, its disgusting, they behave like children
“Bring it on, libs.”
I was thinking the same thing. A lot of FReepers are very good at identifying and finding the trolls. It would save the rest of us a lot of trouble.
Some of his posts about ObamaCare show that he is for it, and how about the interrogation stuff, WOW, that guy is a plant
Correction: They ARE children. ;-)
All interns get paid, just not necessarily in ca$h.
Sometimes trolls think they’re so stinkin’ smart no one will pick up on an obvious screen name like this one. They just don’t know Viking Kitties like we do. ;)
Don’t doubt groups do this, but, really, how effective could it be? On small blogs, it’s a waste of effort because the readership is so small. On big websites, the infiltrators will always be outgunned.
You’re right and we’re now up to six. I’ll bet we could make quite a list if we keep going . . .
Daily Kos freaks, Move-On freaks and the biggest freak Soros are morally bankrupt, lock step communists, Republic hating, fools who will ALL pay the price one day for their evil deeds today. I just hope I am around to see it happen - am I wrong to hope for that? ;)
HeHe, yeah..they are called “Concern trolls” coming here showing their “Concern” for someone, either Sarah Palin, or someone else, when in reality they can care less. You can just see the venom from these low lives, they have nothing better to do then troll here and trash someone
2) Some of the Palin Deranged may be Romneybots, but they could also be pretending to be Romneybots. Any true Romney people should keep an eye out for these, because they'll hurt Romney as well as Palin (full disclosure, I held my nose and voted for Mitt in the primary, Thompson was already making dropout noises)
3) They have new rhetorical tells. I suggest reading this thread
to get a feel for the newer style.
4) Listen for posts that start out--"I love Sarah Palin, too, but she just doesn't have enough education or experience" and other memes. "I am concerned"
Oh lookie - Andy’s gotta stalker! ;)
A list would be a great idea, unfortunately I’m not good at spotting the trolls, when I see nasty posts, I automatically think they are RomneyBots or Ron Paul supporters, never did it come to mind these could be media matter fools being hired to come here and cause trouble
Excellent written skills
Color me unimpressed.
I think it is a calculated pushback against momentum. Suppose our momentum could be quantified at a number..50...suppose they just aim to shave a couple of percentage points off that?
I am going to apply for one of these jobs. Imagine getting PAID to be on Free Republic. LOL
Your right. I have fell for it as well, thinking they are RomneyBots. I don’t like Romney, but even I don’t think he’s a bad person, I just disagree with him politically(especially about RomneyCare) yeah whenever you see a post saying “I like Sarah Palin but...” the second you see the word “but” you know its a troll, or someone pretending to be concerned about her
