Though it's largely remained outside the spotlight on this topic, Reddit said on Monday that Russian propaganda related to the last presidential election was shared by at least "thousands" of U.S. users.
"[F]rom everything we can tell, these users are mostly American, and appear to be unwittingly promoting Russian propaganda ... I believe the biggest risk we face as Americans is our own ability to discern reality from nonsense, and this is a burden we all bear. I wish there was a solution as simple as banning all propaganda, but it’s not that easy."— CEO Steve Huffman in a Reddit post.
Why it matters: Congressional investigators are seeing more information from Reddit as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the Washington Post reports.
