— Trump’s Deplorable Cult waits patiently – Carol Headrick (DIERSEN: Like Hillary demonizes, denigrates, condemns those who support Trump, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. They work hard to destroy the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee. They worked hard to destroy TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, etc.) 
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/11/trumps_deplorable_cult_waits_patiently.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Hillary called us Deplorable, along with racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and you name it, we laughed at her. We never cried, and we never demanded a phony apology. We did vow to never, ever vote liberal. Our latest name is Cult, but since we heart our beloved Deplorable name, perhaps Deplorable Cult will stick. And still, we will never, ever vote liberal. The Deplorable Cult has learned to expect truly deplorable behavior from the Democrats.)

— Facebook is rating the trustworthiness of its users – Elizabeth Dwoskin (DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes identify as being false a) articles that they disagree with and b) articles written by people who they cannot manipulate/dominate.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20180821/facebook-is-rating-the-trustworthiness-of-its-users
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook developed its reputation assessments as part of its effort against fake news, Tessa Lyons, the product manager who is in charge of fighting misinformation, said in an interview. The company, like others in tech, has long relied on its users to report problematic content — but as Facebook has given people more options, some users began falsely reporting items as untrue, a new twist on information warfare that it had to account for. It’s “not uncommon for people to tell us something is false simply because they disagree with the premise of a story or they’re intentionally trying to target a particular publisher,” said Lyons. Users’ trustworthiness score between zero and one isn’t meant to be an absolute indicator of a person’s credibility, Lyons said, nor is there is a single unified reputation score that users are assigned. Rather, the score is one measurement among thousands of new behavioral clues that Facebook now takes into account as it seeks to understand risk. Facebook is also monitoring which users have a propensity to flag content published by others as problematic, and which publishers are considered trustworthy by users. It is unclear what other criteria Facebook measures to determine a user’s score, whether all users have a score, and in what ways they’re used.)
