Journalists: are your articles being used as bait by Russian propagandists?

A disturbing Twitter thread by a Miami Herald journalist who found her articles plagiarized verbatim on online "news" sites, but attributed to a fictitious writer. There are multiple such "news" sites online, and their purpose is "Truthwashing," to pull in readers who come to trust these are legitimate news outlets. These readers will more readily believe the Russian propaganda that will later show up there.
