Russian disinformation: From Cold War to Kanye West – NYT
This three-part video is probably the best description I have seen about how disinformation, subversion, and propaganda (or as part of it is called today, Fake News) is forced upon us in today’s digital/cyber-environment. It is a long-play utilized by governments to influence and destabilize countries. Today boosted by speed and reach, all enabled by social media. When viewed from this historical perspective, it suddenly seems very obvious what has happened.
