Is hope on the horizon? Has fake news gone so far that someone in the middle of the disinformation world is taking a chance on getting relieved of his job … or hoping that others will follow suit?

Why Rumors Of Russian Interference In The West Are Greatly Exaggerated
Russian hackers might have interfered in the Brexit vote, according to a committee of British MPs, in a somewhat bizarre but predictable claim. According to this new hypothesis, the U.K.’s “Register to Vote” website, which was temporarily down on June 7, 2016, the final day of registration before the Brexit vote, “might have” suffered a DDOS attack. While declining to categorically assert clear evidence of a foreign (Russian) hack, Bernard Jenkin, Chair of the House of Commons’ Public Accounts Select Committee, alluded to dark forces and botnets.
This is not new. In December, a Labour Party MP, Ben Bradshaw, stated that it is “highly probable” that Vladimir Putin interfered in the Brexit referendum. In the same speech, he also, rather bafflingly claimed Russia encouraged a huge flow of migrants from Syria to destabilize the EU.
