俄罗斯势力利用汤不热_英语新闻

Buzzfeed believes that the infamous Internet Research Agency targeted the African American community on the site.

媒体Buzzfeed认为,这家声名狼藉的互联网研究机构将目标锁定在该网站上的非裔美国人社区。

If you thought that Tumblr was just fan fiction and monochrome erotica GIFs, then you probably haven’t been paying attention.The blogging platform has also, in recent years, become a hotbed of Russian activists seeking to disrupt American politics.That’s the charge leveled at the platform by Buzzfeed and Professor Jonathan Albright, an authority on so-called fake news.

如果你认为Tumblr只是些同人小说和色情的黑白图片,那么你可能大意了。近年来,博客平台也成为了俄罗斯激进分子的温床,他们试图破坏美国的政治。这是Buzzfeed和Jonathan Albright教授在平台上提出的指控。Jonathan Albright是所谓的“假新闻”中的权威。

The outlets teamed up to examine if Tumblr, like Facebook and Twitter, had been compromised by the notorious Internet Research Agency.The agency has been described as a professional trolling agency, using social media to wage an information war on foreign powers.Unlike on those other networks, however, it appears that the efforts were designed to drive a wedge in the African American community.

这些媒体联合起来调查,是否像Facebook和Twitter这样的社交媒体Tumblr被这个臭名昭著的互联网研究机构所破坏。该机构被描述为一个专业的宣传机构,利用社会媒体对外国势力发动信息战争。然而,与其他网络不同的是,这些努力的目的似乎是为了在非裔美国人社区中挑拨离间。

According to research from Buzzfeed and Albright, Russia launched accounts that initially propagated false accounts concerning Hillary Clinton’s attitude towards African Americans.Older footage, including video of a South African police officer attacking a 15-year-old girl, which was edited into GIFs and attributed to the NYPD.Counter to this were memes praising Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, before switching to a pro-Trump tone during the election.

根据媒体Buzzfeed和Albright的研究,俄罗斯曾创建了一些账号,这些账号最初传播的是关于希拉里克林顿对非裔美国人态度的虚假报道。更早些时候的镜头,包括一名南非警官攻击一名15岁女孩的视频,该视频被编辑成gif,并被认为事发来自纽约警察局。与此相反的是,在操控舆论风向支持川普之前,这些账号还出过一些盛赞希拉里政敌民主党候选人伯尼桑德斯的网络论调。

Albright and Buzzfeed believe that Tumblr has escaped scrutiny so far, and may not be aware of the state of the issue.It’s claimed that reports have contacted Tumblr’s representatives several times without reply, and also unsuccessfully reached out to Senator Mark Warner for comment.At this point, it’s not clear what Tumblr’s awareness is, or how it is planning to address the accusations that Russian interference was on the site.

Albright和Buzzfeed认为,Tumblr到目前为止已经逃脱了审查,可能还没有意识到多个账号被俄罗斯操控的这个问题。有报道称,媒体曾多次试图联系Tumblr的发言人,但迄今没有得到回复,也未能联系到参议员Mark Warner发表态度。目前还不清楚Tumblr是否认识到该问题,也不清楚它打算如何应对俄罗斯对该网站的干预。

Engadget, which is owned by Oath, which also owns Tumblr via its purchase of Yahoo, has reached out for comment.No response had been received by time of publication, but we will update this story when we are able.

本媒体Engadget(瘾科技)的母公司是Oath,Oath也通过收购雅虎的方式拥有Tumblr,瘾科技因此向汤不热寻求表态。截至此文发表的时候没有收到汤不热的任何回复,但是瘾科技会竭尽所能尽快跟进此事。

Verizon owns Engadget’s parent company, Oath (formerly AOL).Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage.Engadget remains editorially independent.

尽管Verizon拥有Engadget的母公司Oath(前身为美国在线,AOL)。放心吧,Verizon无法控制我们的报道。Engadget在编辑方面保持中立态度。
