TGP reported this past week on the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) that was created to respond to 2020 Election reporting that did not fit the far-left narrative on the election. Now we know one of the top partners of the Atlantic Council is its Digital Forensics Lab which includes no top people with backgrounds in digital forensics.
Last week we reported on this group that claimed to be the only purveyors of truth who made it their mission to attack articles after the 2020 Election that factually identified fraud and a stolen election. This group labeled itself the Election Integrity Partnership.
This partnership was between the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFL), two entities connected to Pac 10 Universities, and a firm by the name of Graphika. The DFL says the following on its website.
To identify, expose, and explain disinformation where and when it occurs using open source research; to promote objective truth as a foundation of government for and by people; to protect democratic institutions and norms from those who would seek to undermine them in the digital engagement space.
To create a new model of expertise adapted for impact and real-world results.
To forge digital resilience at a time when humans are more interconnected than at any point in history, by building the world’s leading hub of digital forensic analysts tracking events in governance, technology, security, and where each intersect as they occur, as well as a network of #DigitalSherlocks.
Translation – find any articles about the stolen 2020 Election and respond with whatever they can to denigrate the article. The mission is the opposite of what it claims.
One example of this is that the DFL claims to be “building the world’s leading hub of digital forensic analysts” but this appears not to be the case. When looking at the leaders on the staff page at the DFL not one appears to have technical or scientific expertise in “Digital Forensics”. Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science.
Whatever is going on here, it doesn’t seem to involve digital forensics.
