Trump and His Disinfo Brigade Fall Flat

From a Jack Shafer Fourth Estate column on headlined “Trump and His Disinfo Brigade Fall Flat”:

The red wave wasn’t the only conspicuous no-show on Election Day.

The so-called rising tide of political disinformation — spotted by think tankers, journalists at outlets as varied as the Associated Press and the Guardian, and statesmen like Barack Obama — failed to break the shore. According to disinformation researchers speaking to the New York Times, disinfo artists, of whom there are plenty, failed to convince many that the election process is rigged and corrupt.
