Episode 3 - burning down the house

Logical Campaign Twitter friend, Trumpkin Chris Bowen, turns out to be not so keen on questions.

In this episode we hear how Logical Campaign destroyed all of its visible online assets when this podcast broke the story of how it branded real journalists as 'fake', while operating from within a network of entirely fictitious business entities.

We discuss a Logical Campaign Twitter friend, Chris Bowen, and hear how some of his online assets disappeared after their veracity was challenged. Chris also put in an appearance in the anti-Islamic astroturfing of social media after the Parsons Green bomb, in London, in September 2017. John and Mike discuss his apparent interest in British current affairs, tweeting from his vantage point in the town of Mystic, Connecticut.

Other images below relate to the rest of the discussion between Mike and John in this episode.

Quite a lot of engagement on this tweet from a more left wing perspective appeared to be 'programmatic'. Astroturfing isn't only done by the right.
