      Facebooks advertising features already allow a significant degree of micro-targeting. This feature was used in the earlier election cycle to depress the non-white vote by playing to their disenchantment with the political system. Disinformation exploits social networks. Disinformation spreads faster than information.   Google, which has not previously commented on its internal investigation, said it had discovered $4, (£3,) worth of ads with suspicious Russian ties as well as 18 YouTube channels linked to the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign. It also discovered Gmail addresses used to open accounts on other platforms.

Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism is a non-fiction book about disinformation tactics and history rooted in information was written by former three-star general in the Securitate, the secret police of Socialist Republic of Romania, Ion Mihai Pacepa, and law professor Ronald J. Rychlak.

      At its worse, this cycle can turn social media into a kind of confirmation bias machine, one perfectly tailored for the spread of misinformation. Support Lawfare. If you look at Fatah’s tweets, the process above plays out almost to a tee.   We conducted a mixed-method, interpretative analysis of an online, cross-platform disinformation campaign targeting the White Helmets, a rescue group operating in rebel-held areas of Syria that have become the subject of a persistent effort of delegitimization. This research helps to conceptualize what a disinformation campaign is and how it : Kate Starbird, Tom Wilson.

Rychlak is a revealing and eloquent book that requires greater dissemination and should be required reading by sober citizens of every civilized nation/5().

The vicious cycle. Democracy assumes the “wisdom of crowds”. Or that the combined knowledge of a collective is superior to any individual. This wisdom assumes that the crowd is “informed”. The news cycle moves so quickly & as American's we only seem to have about a 15 second attention span & so many of these topics are out dated (and probably were by the time this book went to print).

Some on the other hand such as 9/11 are still of relevance, but /5. The solar cycle (currently close to a minimum) is on an 11 year period. We therefore need rolling averages of at least an 11 year period to remove this effect from the data set.

The Brexit campaign in the United Kingdom and the election of Donald Trump in the United States are among the most prominent examples of disinformation campaigns intended to disrupt normal democratic order, but many other nations display signs of disinformation and democratic disruption.

Debunking those allegations well enough to stop coverage of them is extremely hard. They do not go away so long as someone who can impact the news cycle wants to mention them. That’s why it’s a favorite tactic in the Russian play book.

Disinformation is the deliberate spread of verifiably false or misleading content to gain financially or to deceive the public. The edition of The Merriam-Webster New Book of Word Histories defines disinformation as a probable translation of the Russian dezinformatsiya.

This dictionary notes that it was possible the English version of the word and the Russian-language version developed independently in parallel to each other—out of ongoing frustration related to the spread of propaganda before World War II.

The Fight Against Disinformation in the U.S.: A Landscape Analysis is a map of the disinformation initiatives currently in play to undergird newsrooms and improve media literacy at this challenging moment for the free press.

Universities, platforms, foundations. Network Propaganda challenges that received wisdom through the most comprehensive study yet published on media coverage of American presidential politics from the start of the election cycle in April to the one-year anniversary of the Trump presidency.

In addition to reviving academic centers dedicated to studying disinformation, taking an occasional break from the hour news cycle and picking up a dusty book is a good place to start pushing back against disinformation’s harmful effects on all of us.

A conventional wisdom has emerged since the election of Donald Trump in that new technologies and their manipulation by foreign actors played a decisive role in his victory and are responsible for the sense of a "post-truth" moment in which disinformation and propaganda thrives.

The book uses big data to describe how the American right became radicalized followed by how this radicalized right has reshaped its news media into a propaganda feedback system of disinformation, misinformation and lies/5.
