AP Reporter Asks for Evidence of Stunning Russia Plan – “This Is Alex Jones Territory”


At a media briefing Thursday, spokesperson Ned Price told reporters that the Biden administration suspects Russia is planning to produce and broadcast “a video with graphic scenes of false explosions. It will depict corpses, crisis actors pretending to be mourners, and images of destroyed locations or military equipment – entirely fabricated by Russian intelligence” to justify a further invasion of Ukraine.

If they’re doing it, they got the idea from Hillary’s campaign staff.

Matt Lee of the Associated Price didn’t let Price get away with it.

“Well, it’s an action that you say that they have taken, but you have shown no evidence to confirm that,” Lee said to Price. “And I’m going to get to the next question here, which is, what is the evidence that — I mean, this is like, crisis actors? Really? This is like Alex Jones territory you’re getting into now. What evidence do you have to support the idea that there is some propaganda film in the making?”

The back and forth continued with Lee asking for evidence and Price claiming the allegations are all the evidence he needs. At one point, Price said he’d have it typed up for him, but Lee said it would just be what he had said without evidence.

He ended with Price suggesting Lee seek “solace in what the Russian government is putting out.”

A group of lawmakers led by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have re-introduced the EARN IT Act, an incredibly unpopular bill from 2020 that was dropped in the face of overwhelming opposition. Let’s be clear: the new EARN IT Act would pave the way for a massive new surveillance system, run by private companies, that would roll back some of the most important privacy and security features in technology used by people around the globe. It’s a framework for private actors to scan every message sent online and report violations to law enforcement. And it might not stop there. The EARN IT Act could ensure that anything hosted online—backups, websites, cloud photos, and more—is scanned.

The bill empowers every U.S. state or territory to create sweeping new Internet regulations, by stripping away the critical legal protections for websites and apps that currently prevent such a free-for-all—specifically, Section 230. The states will be allowed to pass whatever type of law they want to hold private companies liable, as long as they somehow relate their new rules to online child abuse.

The goal is to get states to pass laws that will punish companies when they deploy end-to-end encryption, or offer other encrypted services. This includes messaging services like WhatsApp, Signal, and iMessage, as well as web hosts like Amazon Web Services. We know that EARN IT aims to spread the use of tools to scan against law enforcement databases because the bill’s sponsors have said so. In a “Myths and Facts” document distributed by the bill’s proponents, it even names the government-approved software that they could mandate (PhotoDNA, a Microsoft program with an API that reports directly to law enforcement databases).
