Description

The Trump campaign is planning to spend $1 billion and a lot will go towards disinformation and propaganda. 'Atlantic' journalist McKay Coppins created a new Facebook account so he could "like" MAGA-related pages, join MAGA groups, and receive messaging being sent to Trump supporters. He'll tell us what he learned about the new techniques the campaign and its supporters are using to spread disinformation, discredit journalists, and dismantle the mainstream media.

I recommend the podcast Scene on Radio. Season 4 as a companion piece to this episode. The writer mentions "more fragile democracies" elsewhere in the world. the ranking is of little importance. isn't genocide still genocide whether it's 200,000 people or 1 million people?
