Corbyn dismisses controversy surrounding leaked NHS documents as ‘nonsense’

Corbyn dismisses controversy surrounding leaked NHS documents as ‘nonsense’”

Prior this week, network analysis firm Graphika Labs connected the leak of the records and the posts on Reddit from a month prior to procedures utilized by a Russian influence campaign on Facebook named "Secondary Infektion" that had been uncovered in June.

"From what was being put on that (Reddit) website, those who seem to know about these things say that it seems to have all the hallmarks of some form of interference, " Morgan said.

The Reddit accounts were removed after social media research firm Graphika Inc. published a blog on December 2 saying that hundred of pages of leaked documents on trade between the US and United Kingdom were amplified online in a manner "closely" resembling tactics used in the Secondary Infektion campaign. Critics have questioned the British government's failure to release a Parliament intelligence committee report on previous Russian interference in the country's politics.

The distribution of a leaked UK trade agreement with the United States, now the subject of heated debate ahead of the United Kingdom's general elections, is likely the work of an established information operation with suspected ties to Russian intelligence, Reddit said Friday.

He said: "If we want to get to the bottom of the extent to which the Russian state interferes in elections, can we please publish the Intelligence and Security Committee report?"

The company said it had identified and suspended 61 accounts that attempted to further promote the leaked papers.

Besides the Reddit post with the leaked documents, none of the other posts had made much of a stir on the site, and numerous other posts were removed either by moderators or by other content moderation, per Reddit's statement.

There may be at present no options the paperwork have been false or doctored in any method.

Reddit said the leaked files had first been posted in October and then reposted by a second account. 61 accounts under our policies against vote manipulation and misuse of the platform.

These accounts had posted in several regional subreddits and in a number of completely different languages.

Jeremy Corbyn has said the files containing details of trade talks between British and U.S. representatives prove the government would "sell-out" the National Health Service (NHS) to United States companies, a key campaign issue ahead of the December 12 vote. On the original post, Reddit found that other users tried to make the content more popular by manipulating Reddit's voting system. But the government has not challenged the authenticity of the documents.

Reddit mentioned: 'As we've achieved with earlier affect operations, we may even protect these accounts for a time, in order that researchers and the general public can scrutinize them to see for themselves how these accounts operated'.

If you look at where Reddit's comments leave the discussion, it's both helpful and slightly problematic for Labour. "Our releasing them to journalists was clearly in the public interest", a Labour spokesman said.
