An Israeli investigative journalist has been trolled and exposed to a coordinated online smear campaign after he questioned a controversial memory law. Following his interview with the prime minister of Poland social media exploded with thousands of hatred comments that in addition were boosted in what seemed a coordinated campaign.

Dobromir Ciaś, ABTShield CEO gave his comments on new findings regarding this campaign for TVN24, the most established independent tv news channel in Poland.

Experts believe that the attack on Ronen Bergaman and a campaing in defence of the amendment to the Polish memory law was an organized action that could cost between $ 30,000 and $ 50,000 a month but the source of funding remains unknown.
