Re: Just when you thought...

Am I missing something?

Russia paid for ad's that highlighted current issues that America is facing in order to create debating points. Why is this actually a problem?

To suggest this is 'interference' is to suggest that reality is a hindrance to the voting process. Whilst I'm sure there will be those who think this is true, I'm not very comfortable with that.

What exactly are they intending to do if they deem this 'interference'. Another incoming ban on another aspect of free speech?
