Dear David Brock, get well soon because I’m blowing the whistle on a spam ring and it involves your baby, ShareBlue.
Who is David Brock and what’s ShareBlue? For those of you out of the political loop, David Brock founded the progressive media watchdog group Media Matters for America. Brock was also credited as an integral member to Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential bid. Not only was Brock involved in Hillary’s 2016 disaster, but Brock was active in her failed 2008 presidential bid as well. In short, David Brock is a loser by the very definition of the word.
In adherence to Reddit’s site wide rules, I blocked out any identifying user information. The Images below are all ShareBlue.com domain links submitted to Reddit in the past month. I tagged ten individual Share Blue spammers, each with their own color indicator.
David Brock only recently staked this latest claim in new media. In an effort to combat conservative sites such as Breitbart, David Brock created a liberal counter dubbed, ‘ShareBlue’. Prior to SB, David Brock oversaw the controversial Super PAC ‘Correct The Record’.
Last year, a Democratic Party-affiliated super PAC called ‘Correct the Record’ launched a digital campaign in an attempt to influence the narrative on social media. In essence, Correct the Record’s mission was steering conversation on social media to favor Hillary Clinton. This was a reaction to Hillary Clinton’s online support, which was too paltry to compete with rising conservatives. ‘Correct the Record’ was Brock’s brain child to fill that void. In all, CTR tricked people into thinking that Hillary Clinton had more organic support online than she actually did. Countless bots and low wage employees would smear Hillary’s opponents and scramble sensible discussions about her flaws.
The Democratic Party is continuing this online manipulation with ShareBlue, as an arm of the same group. ShareBlue knows Reddit is most susceptible to shady tactics like Astroturfing, spamming and vote manipulation… ShareBlue’s most recent blunder gives credence to the theory that the direction of the Reddit hivemind is being guided by paid forces. Will Reddit admins disavow? I have seen domains completely blacklisted from Reddit in entirety for much less damning evidence.
