Anti-Canadaland Article Linked To Republican Strategy Firm
Emails obtained via FOI give glimpse behind the scenes

When Professor Greg Hill of Boise State University received questions from two different Canadian news organizations about an op-ed he wrote for The Washington Times that described Canadaland as “fake news,” he did not respond to the reporters who sent them. Instead, he forwarded their emails to Todd Cranney, a Republican strategist who served as the deputy political director for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Cranney is a partner at Riverwood Strategies, an Idaho-based strategy and communications firm that worked with the Romney and Marco Rubio campaigns and with America Rising, a political action committee that produces opposition research on Democrats.
