You got it wrong G.
Subversive media, particularily Russia's RT (formerly Russia Today) that was tickled to death to air Trump's interview with Larry King. Brietbart, Alex Jones and other anti-American, and anti Clinton fake 'news' sources had the Ameican working class up in arms about muslim refugees, mexican and south american illegal immigrants, conspiracy theories of Clinton body counts/pedophile sex rings/foundation extortion.
Subversive media designed to detract from the real social and economic issues facing our country. Subversive media focused on partisan politics designed to divide the elctorate and undermine our democratic electoral process.
Apart from the subversive media war and cyber attacks, Clinton would have won easily. Even with them, she still won the popular vote by 3 million votes. Which proves Abraham Lincoln's adage 'you can fool some of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time. But you can't fool all of the people all of the time.'
With respect to RT;
"Their mission now is not to report on Russia but to tell everyone how bad America is," said Alexey Kovalev, a Russian journalist and translator who runs Noodle Remover, a blog dedicated to busting Russian media hoaxes. "There's a huge audience for that, not just internationally but in the United States as well."https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wor ... 578ba5e9e7
