Russia-Linked Facebook Ads Targeted Variety Of States | MSNBC


>>>BUT FIRST, WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS FOR YOU RIGHT NOW ON MSNBC. NEW DETAILS ON RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION AND HOW IT TIES TO FACEBOOK ADS. CAROL LEE IS JOINING ME FROM NEW YORK WITH SOME OF THE EXCLUSIVE REPORT. CAROL, WALK US THROUGH WHAT WE HAVE JUST LEARNING.>>SURE, THANK YOU, HALLIE. WHAT WE KNOW FROM TWO PEOPLE FAMILIAR WITH THE FACEBOOK ADS, THE LIST OF STATES THAT THE RUSSIAN-TIED ADS TARGETED DURING THE CAMPAIGN INCLUDES NOT JUST MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN, WHICH HAS BEEN REPORTED, BUT ALSO MARYLAND, NEW YORK, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, OHIO AND MISSOURI. AND SPECIFICALLY ON OHIO AND MISSOURI, WE’RE TOLD THAT THEY WERE TARGETED TO THOSE STATES BECAUSE THEY HAD SEEN POLICE VIOLENCE. AND WE KNOW THAT THESE ADS HAVE BEEN, IN PART, WERE AIMED AT SEWING RACIAL DIVISIONS. THAT IS WHAT THESE PARTICULAR ADS IN OHIO AND MISSOURI WERE BELIEVED TO BE DESIGNED TO DO. NOW, THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT THIS, AND BY THE WAY, I SHOULD MENTION, THIS IS NOT A DEFINITIVE LIST OF STATES, BUT WHAT IT GIVES IS A BROADER PICTURE OF HOW RUSSIA WAS USING THESE ADS TO TARGET. AND WHAT IT SUGGESTS IS THAT THERE WAS NOT NECESSARILY WHAT YOU WOULD CONSIDER A TRADITIONAL PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS TARGETING. BECAUSE STATES LIKE NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA ARE NOT DECISIVE IN A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.>>SO CAROL, LET ME SET UP THE BACKDROP TO THIS. AS I LOOK AT MY CLOCK HERE, IN TWO HOURS AND 15 MINUTES, WE EXPECT TO SEE THE LEADERS OF THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE OVER ON CAPITOL HILL GIVING REPORTERS EFFECTIVELY A STATUS UPDATE ON THE STATE OF THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION INTO MOSCOW’S MEDDLING. YOUR REPORTING IS NOW COMING OUT AFTER THERE WAS ORIGINALLY WORD THAT PERHAPS THE ADS HAD MAYBE JUST TARGETED MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN. WHAT YOU’RE SAYING IS, THIS WAS BIGGER THAN THAT. MAYBE A QUARTER OF THE ADS WERE GEOGRAPHICALLY TARGETED AND IT WAS NOT JUST STATES THAT WERE SORT OF FAVORABLE POTENTIALLY TO SOMEBODY LIKE DONALD TRUMP.>>RIGHT. AND IN SPEAKING TO SOURCES ABOUT THIS, YOU KNOW, THEY WERE SAYING IF THERE WAS A REPUBLICAN OPERATIVE GUIDING THE HAND OF RUSSIA AND TARGETING THESE ADS, THAT PERSON SHOULD BE FIRED. BECAUSE THIS IS NOT HOW YOU WOULD NECESSARILY TARGET ADS IF YOU WERE TRYING TO GET A REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE OR EVEN A DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE TO WIN. AND SO IT GIVES A PICTURE, A LARGER PICTURE THAN WE HAVE HAD SO FAR. AND YOU’RE RIGHT, IT COMES AHEAD OF THIS PRESS CONFERENCE AND ALSO AS THE SENATE COMMITTEES AND THE SPECIAL COUNSEL’S INVESTIGATION BEGINS TO DRILL DOWN ON THE RUSSIAN USE OF MEDDLING IN THE ELECTION.>>AS I READ THIS BREAKING NEWS JUST GETTING UP ON OUR WEBSITE, REPORTED OUT BY YOU AND KASIE HUNT JOINING US MOMENTARILY, YOU TALK ABOUT HOW THE STATES WERE TARGETED TO STATES THAT SAW POLICE VIOLENCE OR AN INCIDENCE OF VIOLENCE. AND SPECIFICALLY AFRICAN-AMERICANS, RANS, RIGHT?>>THAT’S RIGHT. MISSOURI, IN PARTICULAR, EVERYONE REMEMBERS FERGUSON. AND THE ADDS WERE TARGETED THERE AND TARGETED IN OHIO BECAUSE OF THE SHOOTING IN DLOOEFLD HAD SIMILAR RETURNS. SO IT IS PART OF WHAT WE KNOW RUSSIA DID, WHICH IS TO TRY TO TAKE THE DIVISIVE ISSUE AMONG AMERICANS AND REALLY EXACERBATE THEM. IT WAS NOT JUST RACE BUT OTHER ISSUES, MORE SO THAN NECESSARILY RUNNING WHAT YOU THINK OF THE TRADITIONAL AD SUPPORTING CERTAIN CANDIDATES OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THESE WERE ADS THAT WERE DESIGN

  1. Yes the Russians got no one from the Blue States to buy into their propaganda but the Red States bought into them hook line and sinker!

  2. Countries using the internet to their advantage vs other governments. Wow didn't see that one coming, good job MSNBC

  3. I can't believe that american on-line operatives are not meddling in Russian affairs. We never hear about that, do we……

  4. Everyone should analyze CIA operations in Chile (1962 to 1973) then compare them to alleged Russian activities during America's 2016 election cycle.

  5. 😎Confirmed: Vegas shooter radicalised, first responders found ANTIFA, ISIS literature at site, democratic-biased media trying to cover it up as usual, a big push for gun control and scrapping of 2nd Amendment…

    https://youtu.be/biqql4js8lo

    So-called Liberals have officially gone loco!!

  6. Oh, and look at that, tRump continues to add fuel to the fire by fighting with the NFL. Nazis, racist, white supremacists, we don't want you here!

  7. "We know that, in part, these ads were designed to sow racial division."

    In how many ways can you define fake news? This is just propaganda – and MSNBC is now the official counterpart to Fox News and Richard Nixon's speechwriter Roger Ailes.

  8. Don't look just at Facebook. Remember what was going on, on Youtube during the election? It was a ridiculous amount of sketchy uploads, like and dislike ratios and a bombardment you couldn't escape having hard time to find the sane content when searching general terms connected with the election.

  9. all the people who need to hear about this have been ordered not to watch the main stream media and they will never believe it. besides, they've been told russia isn't bad at all.

  10. Deleting Russian chaos troll accounts is like Hercules fighting the Hydra in when he would chop off one head two would grow back!

  11. What about congressional districts? Where are the political donors located? Cheap Facebook ads. Why not advertise in democratic states? Also, you want to run up the score…win the popular vote as well. Very poor reporting and the box was poorly written.

  12. I don't see how they did this wrong, they discouraged voting in blue states and encouraged votes in seeing States

  13. Хех. Но это лучше, чем бомба .
    Очень смешно – вас держат за скот, который ничего не понимает, пока ему на уши не присядет какое-нибудь СМИ. Сами вы разобраться в колбасных обрезках – ну просто не в состоянии.

  14. So the Russians ran ads designed to get Democrats up in arms and to the voting booth?

    Ummmmm, that would have been beneficial to Hillary, not Trump

  15. Russia is proud country.
    We not meddle in USA election!!
    BAH!!
    Trump is great president and has a beautiful family.
    Support your president!!!!

  16. It was not meant to turn elections but to stoke racial tensions. How far did these actors and accomplices go in their efforts to influence the discourse?

  17. I USE YOUTUBE AND SAW THE SAME TYPE OF RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA NEWS…THE RETHUGLICONS AND CONSERVATIVE NAZY PARTY ALSO WAS PART OF THIS CONSPIRACY…..BE CAREFUL

  18. Now is NOT the time to talk about Russia , gun control or push partisan political agendas .

    – Now is the time to blame Marilyn Manson, hollywood, Rap music & the kneeling athletes of NFL..

  19. Admit it , morons. Russia's association with Facebook, and their attempts to interfere with our elections, is so minuscule, if at all true, as to render it unimportant and irrelevant. Your criminal candidate lost… get over it, or get under it. CNN = VERY FAKE NEWS

  20. But you & all the other idiots want open border one world nation. So why care if Russia, China, Japan, Iraq or Saudi runs a ad in other countries. That's exactly what you're for other countries calling the shots.

  21. Oh, you just wish that your network could have influenced the elections to get Hillary elected, but you failed. Tsk tsk.

  22. Its kind of funny how years ago people like this were claimed mentally ill. MSNBC you finally gone over the edge

  23. Been saying it for a long time that Russia was involved in this. Also involved in malware attacks that targeted home networks designed to take them down. Ask McAfee about that one.

  24. Fix your god-awful MSNBC website so people don't have to get their news from Youtube.
    Again:
    Fix your god-awful MSNBC website so people don't have to get their news from Youtube.

  25. We want nuclear war with Russia! MSNBC. Poor peaceful USA that never interferes with anyone was attacked by Evil Russian facebook ads – MSNBC anyone who doesn't want nuclear war with Russia is a Putin paid shill MSNBC viewers.

  26. They told me about America when I was growing up. Where is it? I am completely disgusted with whatever country this is. The Evangelical Republicans are morally bankrupt. The wealthy are robbing the poor. The administration is nepotistic and enriches themselves at public cost. The "president' is a sleazy clown. The US has no international respect. The attorney general  is trying his hand at practicing psychiatry without a license. And how can anyone who is not possessed by Satan vote against that UN resolution? Every day I hear, "This is the thing that will bring them down," but it's all talk. No action. Nothing happens. This is a disgusting country and the only reason I live here is that I am too old to leave.

    Stop with the exposés. DO SOMETHING.

  27. 100k spent, lol. US via CIA has assassinated democratically elected leaders in the past. Come now. You "reporters" are quite amusing.

  28. The Russian bots are all over this story like roaches. Waiting for Mueller to start looking into Youtube Russian fake news channels and fake commenters. If Youtube doesn't police itself then something must be done.

  29. msnbc needs to do a review of their shamed dnc endorsements and leftist legacy delusions masquerading as 'news'. they dont need to begin with discredited liberal medias corrupt dishonest social cultural philosophical 'concerns' or their patented fairness fallacy reporting, but can just pick up around the stolen election debate question time. that way they can cover all their foreign policy blunders, russian boogeyman fiascos, pitiful victim/oppressor propaganda skits and other intelligently organized isolation agendas.

  30. MSNBC The New Corporate Comcast Owned Republican Channel thar wants to support starting WW3 with Russia and North Korea and Hates Medicare for all, cause their Corporate Masters (Health Agencies, Military Industrial Complex, Pharmaceutical Agencies, etc… Are all such Losers of the Main Stream Media News…

  31. The one that help the Russian was Trump son in law, this is his favorite part and he has a company for that too… But Trump is behind all. Like his grandfather and father, they have been gansters all their lives. Do some research people, it has been out there all this time..

  32. the GOP in condoning crimes and lies and fraud concerning the president and persons involved in ties with russia have set a case Precedent. A court decision that is cited as an example or analogy to resolve similar questions of law in later cases. In regards to any charges against any goverment employees or future presidents

  33. Do you need a hacker is what you need, you should contact westprohackers at gmail.com they are the best hacker for hire service online hands down! examples are grades,phones, whatsapp, and more

  34. my sources from msnbc tell me that MSNBC (actually my ears) just confirmed that you nimrods that voted for Trump weren't the only targets. So much for fake news. If you all had any brains (sorry for any Russians trolls like Putinder Box) you would realize they said something pro you! But no you are still calling them fake and bad names because it came from MSNBC. A real news organization and not the faked Fox News or Bright whatever Bart Simpson idiots you listen to, supported your point of view. Wake up please.

  35. MSNBC YOU SHOULDN'T EVEN BE IN THE NEWS BUSINESS .YOU GUYS S*CK….FAKE NEWS,DISGUSTING .I feel sorry for the sheep that watch your show and they never see the whole story on other news sources,gotta tell you though ,you guys are masters at editing…..and RACHEAL MADDOW GIVEME A BREAK.
