Sneaky: Zero Hedge accused of distributing Russian propaganda

Spread the love

Zero Hedge is a financial information web site. I was never aware that it was based in Bulgaria and shared Russian propaganda.

U.S. officials said Zero Hedge, a Bulgarian website, published articles produced by Moscow-controlled media, which were later shared by other outlets and individuals unaware of the site’s ties to Russian intelligence. However, officials didn’t indicate that the website was directly linked to Russia.

Zero Hedge denied the accusation, stating they try to “publish a wide spectrum of views that cover both sides of a given story” in a post responding to the claims. The website also denied any relation with Russia, saying they have “never worked, collaborated or cooperated with Russia nor are there any links to spy” agencies.

Regardless of its relationship with Russia, Zero Hedge has appeared to be an avenue for Russian propaganda, experts said – although not as discernible as other outlets.
