COVID-19, Astro-turf, misinformation
There's a video going around Facebook showing an organization calling itself "America's Frontline Doctors" spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
The thing is, this "organization" didn't even have a domain name two weeks ago. Their site is put together so hastily that they still have the default Squarespace favicon.
If there's nothing else to take away from that, this was a rush job.
