“As they stole stories from real newspapers, these sites baffled scientists, activists, and journalists. Until now.”


How is Interdo pronounced? In-turd-oh? Who would name a company that?


This does kinda sound like the news equivalent of “high-speed trading” so the resume fits…

I would assume Inter-do

Has anyone ever see or heard Big Tech take responsibility for anything? It’s like a 3 year old with cake crumbs on their face, and they say I don’t know how they got there.

Thomson Reuters is not directly really involved in high speed trading, as far as I know, but even closer, they do automatic news stuff.

Are you saying that NASDAQ was paying this guy to do this?

How does Inter-do do?

Nothing is too far fetched these days.

So. All the news was real, just plagiarized? Seems legit in today’s world.

Did they just echo legit news sites, or did they filter/edit the stories to slant them, like Uncle Vlad?
