Russian troll describes work in the infamous misinformation factory

by Ben Popken and Kelly Cobiella

For months, Vitaly Bespalov, 26, was one of hundreds of workers pumping
out misinformation online at the Internet Research Agency, the Russian
troll factory responsible for explosive content seen by 126 million
Americans in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election.

In many ways, the IRA was like a normal IT facility, Bespalov told NBC
News in an exclusive broadcast interview. There were day shifts and
night shifts, a cafeteria, and workers were seated at computers in a
large open floor plan.

But in the squat, four-story concrete building on Savushkina Street in
St. Petersburg, secured by camouflaged guards and turnstiles, bloggers
and former journalists worked around the clock to create thousands of
incendiary social media posts and news articles to meet specific
quotas.
