US cuts funds for ‘anti-propaganda’ Iran group that trolled activists

The US state department has cut off funding to a group that purported to
combat Iranian propaganda, after it was found to be trolling US
journalists, human rights activists and academics it deemed to be
insufficiently hostile to the government in Tehran. The group also focused on supporters of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which Donald Trump withdrew from
last year, particularly the National Iranian American Council, which
has advocated nuclear diplomacy with Tehran. It used the hashtag
#NIACLobbies4Mullahs.
