Do you know how disinformation campaigns are run?


Hyderabad: 17 November 2022:Do you know how disinformation campaigns are run?
1. They flood social media with multiple versions of the "truth" - each corresponding to a different demographic. A liberal, conservative, populist, propagandist, all imaginable versions are released.
2. After a while, all the multiple versions are in wide circulation ensuring that "truth" itself remains elusive, and that you can never say something with certainty - what you believe to be the truth simply becomes the opinion of one specific camp.
3. The most popular non-truth is picked up, and spread through informal communication channels such as WhatsApp groups further ensuring the invisibility of the "truth".
4. Guess what, everyone is complicit in this. Welcome to the post-truth era.
