FPRI’s Clint Watts Cited by The Hill on Russian-Connected Facebook Ads
Clint Watts, a former FBI agent who has testified before the Senate on Russian operations, thinks that while researchers could provide insights by analyzing the ads, showing them to the public would only cause problems.
“It creates a wild sea of conspiracies,” Watts said. “I do worry about the public. I don’t know if they really understand what they’re looking at. Everyone thinks they can somehow analyze Facebook. Often people aren’t equipped to do it.”
