The latest podcast in the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars’ podcast, KennanX, “Disinformation’s Threat to Democracy,” features Wilson Center fellow Nina Jankowicz talking about foreign and domestic disinformation in America and how to build a more disinformation-resilient society. Jankowicz recently published “How to Lose the Information War: Russia, Fake News, and the Future of Conflict.”
From Nina Jankowicz:
“So often in the West we think of disinformation as cut-and-dried fake news, but it not only involves the stuff that is part of an online influence campaign, those trolls and bots and fake articles, and things like that. It also involves offline influence, whether that is through cultural organizations. It involves monetary influence in the funding of protests and political parties. It is truly an all-encompassing endeavor for Russia.”
