U.S. Government Goes After ZeroHedge For Reporting Unpopular Information

(RoyalPatriot.com )- You’ve heard of ZeroHedge. It’s the right-leaning economics and investment news website that was famously booted from Twitter for sharing accurate information about the possibility of the COVID-19 virus leaking from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, only to eventually be given its Twitter account back when the media had to admit the story could be true.

And now, the website is facing fresh attacks. United States officials have now claimed that the website is promoting Russian propaganda, which is being shared by its thousands of followers online.

According to the Associated Press, the unnamed U.S. officials say that Zero Hedge published articles that were created by the Russian state press. The articles were then reportedly shared by other people who didn’t realize that they were connected to the Russian government and intelligence community.

Zero Hedge, however, flat-out denies the claims and said that there is “no actual accusation that Zero Hedge works directly with anyone tied to Russia or its intelligence apparatus.

A statement published by the news site said that they have “never worked, collaborated or cooperated with Russia” and that they do not have any links to spy agencies in the country. Instead, the news site said, they “publish a wide spectrum of views that cover both sides of a given story.”

Even if you haven’t visited the Zero Hedge website, you may have seen their Twitter account. The platform publishes statements under the name “Tyler Durden,” the main character from the classic movie “Fight Club,” and the site’s Twitter profile picture is a photograph of Durden’s torso.

Some of the articles published by Zero Hedge in recent months have accused the United States government of creating a panic about Ukraine, which may soon be invaded by Russian forces. According to the Associated Press, some of those articles were written by people with links to the Strategic Culture Foundation, an organization sanctioned by the Biden administration for allegedly engaging in election interference in the 2020 presidential election.

So…you may want to take that with a pinch of salt.
