The previous video, Meet the KGB Spies Who Invented Fake News, breaks down a Russian lie about the origin of the AIDS virus: it was a lie that distorted my view of the Federal Government for decades.
The lie was the U.S. Government created AIDS and used it on Gays.

In truth, Ronald Reagan was simply a homophobe in a culture of institutional homophobia.
Reagan was a man of his time.

I urge you to watch the third video, ‘How Disinformation Is Taking Over the World’
I do not own the video or images in the post.
