Except that the campaign was outsourced abroad.
Did you say they sold junk? The kind of selling made me add the following two items, to our list:
>> f) Lobbying. Giving money for middle men to "funnel" (bribe) powerful people, in state machinery for eg.
>> e) Threatening institutions with FUD and other sling campaigns, data breach, DoS attacks, etc. (extortion)
The story is more crooked (than H.C.):
- under f) the lobbyist M.C. was no registered lobbyist. (Read the breaking news about selling access to the Ukraine.)
- under g) the story of Qatar. Their fate fluctuation according to their "investments" on a royal family.

Hahahahahaaaaaa!!!!! Very funny, but it is actually quite sad; and likely far more accurate than most of us would be comfortable Visvanath
I just ran across this article from the British Psychological Society, makes for interesting reading.. [I'm doing something else too..]
Exactly. Was it two weeks ago, those sheep (in Michigan?) cried "Nobel, Nobel"? Yes, very funny. They must be actually quite sad today, listening to that love letter to Pyongyang. I hope, they can at least take home a commemorative coin.
Yes, psychology, that is what the others (we) need. And as you wisely discovered, something else to do too.
