‘Fake News Blame Russia’: Brandon Smith’s explanation

Brandom Smith has (as ever) an interesting explanation for the ‘FAKE NEWS BLAME RUSSIA!’ outbreak currently flooding the mainstream press.

Brandon’s hypothesis – that there are immensely powerful ‘puppet masters’ who are controlling events so as to increase their own power and delegitimise their opponents – is obviously a minority opinion. But – presuming he isn’t cherry-picking his results – it appears to have an improbably high predictive power.

Try working that one out, my dear brainiacs.
