The New York Times released a hit piece on the alternative social media network – Gab, after the riots at the U.S. Capital on Jan 6th. The pre-planned information operation was anticipated by Andrew Torba, Gab CEO, who removed a myriad of fake accounts proposing violence on the site. The accounts were taken down immediately.
The goal seems to be to make the case Gab should be shut down for ‘inciting violence’.
The video below is Torba’s explanation of the incident. It is quite good and makes a great case for Gab.
