Whilst many people are awake to the manipulation of mainstream media they may still not recognise the extent of the manipulation. The fact is nearly all social media comments are contrived by millions of young Chinese students to supplement their income at 50c a post and by billions of posts carried out by bots.
These professional posters, or trolls, are controlled to create a narrative. Evidence suggests these posts are mainly coming from accounts in mainland China that must be controlled by the CCP.
That means the CCP are in direct communication with you, they are disguised as normal users but their aim to change your opinion through highly skilled campaigns.
