Today's Video Focus: Russia’s meddling in the United States’ elections is not a hoax. It’s the culmination of Moscow’s decades-long campaign to tear the West apart. “Operation InfeKtion” reveals the ways in which one of the Soviets’ central tactics — the promulgation of lies about America — continues today, from Pizzagate to George Soros conspiracies. Meet the KGB spies who conceived this virus and the American truth squads who tried — and are still trying — to fight it. Countries from Pakistan to Brazil are now debating reality, and in Vladimir Putin’s greatest triumph, Americans are using Russia’s playbook against one another without the faintest clue.

Focus of the Day Article:

The SRA cited the example of the use of non-disclosure agreements, incorporating issues such as discrimination, harassment or sexual abuse. Where lawyers have arranged these agreements, they are reminded they still have a duty to act with integrity and uphold the rule of law.
