(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A high ranking official of the Global Disinformation Index—a group funded by one of George Soros’s many foundations, asserted that supporters of former President Donald Trump are not apt to accept lefitst re-education.
Dr Daniel Rogers, co-founder and executive director of GDI, made the statements in a presentation at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy.
“Obviously, there’s the category of people who are going to put hashtag ‘MAGA‘ on their headstones, and we’re not ever going to reach them,” Rogers said. “But there’s a whole category of people kind of in the middle coming to the fact that these attention driving news feeds naturally serve as more adversarial and angry content and having to fight back with buying up that pace to counteract that tailwind and the opposition.”
According to Breitbart, GDI is in trouble with companies such as Microsoft for working with their ad network, Xandr, and blacklisting conservative media outlets using GDI’s Dynamic Exclusion List. Their relationship with the Big Tech giant is currently under review.
Rogers worked consistently with American intelligence officials on another start up he founded, known as Terbium Labs, which focused on information security and dark web intelligence.
He also serves as an adjunct professor at New York University, and is a fellow at the Truman National Security project, where Jake Sullivan—one of the leaders of the Trump/Russia disinformation narrative and current Biden National Security Advisor—is a board member.
GDI is funded by the Open Society Foundations—founded by Soros—to blacklist media outlets, stymie their ad revenue and ultimately destroy them.
Their Dynamic Exclusion List takes sites they deem as disinformation and sells the data to ad tech companies “to defund and downrank these worst offenders, thus disrupting the ad-funded disinformation business model.”
Rogers has a record of going after conservative news sites, calling the narratives on these sites “anti-immigrant, mysogyny, anti-vax,” and more.
Despite his insistence that GDI is a politically neutral organization, he has called it a “data-driven advocacy organization.”
