That time a respected election-security expert misleadingly stated that “there is very little evidence that” voting machines “are being exploited in real elections,” and a nationally recognized journalist had to remind him that “no one has ever looked for [such] evidence.” 1/

I’m not a mind reader and am not saying he misled people intentionally. But if even I, a non-expert, can grasp this concept, why is he running around making this type of claim?  2/

It’s great that a nationally recognized cybersecurity journalist corrected him here on Twitter. But she can’t be everywhere at all times. This is dangerous propaganda that I, too, have tried to correct again and again. 3/

Some listen and change their messaging. Others don’t and choose to either ignore or go on the attack with name calling or worse. It’s difficult to get to the truth in this type of propaganda-riddled and toxic environment. 4/
