'A UK-based PR company has self-funded its own “research” to accuse Russian-funded media outlets of affecting the outcome of Brexit. The firm 89up uses a combination of typos and selective evidence to make its point.
A few cards on the table about 89up. It’s a PR company, the kind which is not exactly without an agenda of its own. It does for example describe itself as the “sole communications agency for Best for Britain.” You may recognize the name ‘Best for Britain,’ because it’s the anti-Brexit group that’s been in the headlines recently due to the fact it’s part funded by arch-meddler, billionaire George Soros.
In simple terms, this report into alleged Russian meddling around Brexit comes from a group which has links to a foreign billionaire who is publicly meddling in Brexit.
Speaking of which, here’s a tweet from a communications worker at Soros’ Open Society Foundation, who is apparently shocked and aghast at these findings.
The CEO of 89up, Mike Harris, has left quite an online trail behind him attacking Russia, or passionately defending Soros. There’s nothing wrong with that – a person is free to have his views – but there is a clear hypocrisy on show with his willingness to accuse others of having questionable motivations.
89up boasts that its report into RT and Sputnik is self-funded, but who that’s supposed to reassure is hard to say. The firm claims it’s worried about the role of “autocratic regimes in shaping public opinion.” But not the role of foreign billionaires with questionable motives, it seems.'
