Era of fakes

Era of fakes

The election campaign apart from all its positive and negative manifestations also creates jobs. True, temporarily. Rich political parties, for example, are hiring a few dozens of television operators who must immortalize the valuable thoughts of their leaders. My colleagues feel good with it, especially if we consider that there are no weddings will be arranged in May and the operators will stand idle. I know many young people who to some extent know how to work on a computer and again will not stand idle for two months. All of this if not completely legal (for the money, I assume, are paid in “black cash”) then at least is a visible work.
The campaign is something different. Here, as they say, you can see the exterior but not the interior. Not only the political parties are engaged in the campaign during the election campaign but also the so-called “fakes”. Every “major” party or an “eminent” politician in terms of the wallet take up the duty to have such a “brigade of fakes” during the elections whose opinion does not costs a penny if the person has no courage to introduce himself by the name and last name. No one cares about him and his view taken separately. But if they constitute a “mass” consisted of a few dozen people, then the readers and the users volitionally are “deviated” in that direction, where the “brigade of fake” takes them.
There are not only “fake” persons but also “fake” websites which are created solely for the elections. No one knows who is the “official” owner of those websites, who is the editor, who are the authors who write on these sites, where is their editorial office located, what is the phone number to call them and so on. Instead, you know whom they support and whom they are against. You will not find any news in those websites in the “classic” sense of this word, from one end to the other you will see “appraising judgments” in favor of the “client” politician and against all his opponents.
By and large, it is a waste of resources by political parties and individual politicians. Yes, almost half of Armenia’s population in on the Internet or uses social networks. But not all users are interested in the election campaign, and not all those who are interested accept the campaign of “fake” individuals and websites “smoothly.” Even the campaign of real people in Armenia is accepted with great reservation.
For example, I feel an overall unpleasantness from the presence of these fakes. Approximately such a discomfort which arises when looking at the walls of the public toilets of the Soviet period.
