Experts: Fake News, Propaganda, Disinformation Has Always Existed
June 13, 2017 — Fake news, propaganda and disinformation has always existed. What sets today apart from years gone by is its rapid dissemination and global reach, experts say.
Quote:
Concerns raised by the instant propagation of fake news in the digital age and the harmful impact it has on the credibility and independence of journalism, democratic values and human rights were examined by a panel of experts Tuesday at a side event of the United Nations Human Rights Council. "It is interesting how the perception of the term fake news has evolved and been manipulated because it described fabricated, inflammatory content, which very often is distributed through social media," said Thomas Hajnoczi, Austrian Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva. He said this posed dangers because "in our digital age, every individual has access to the internet where fake stories can be read by millions around the globe, and for many it is always hard to know what is true and what is incorrect."


Eileen Donahoe speaks during the 13th session of the Human Rights Council at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland

Eileen Donahoe, a senior fellow at the Center for International Governance Innovation and former U.S. ambassador to the Human Rights Council, called digital technology a force for good. She said it has played "a very positive role in facilitating the free flow of information, access to information, blossoming of freedom of expression globally. "It has also made possible the democratization of the means of distributing media and information. And, it just generally has been a positive force for the human rights movement." However, Donahoe warned that there were many forces working in the opposite direction and there was no guarantee that digital technology "would be a net force for good." She singled out emerging dangers from the so-called weaponization of information in the post-Brexit, post-U.S. presidential election world. "It can be a very potent force in undermining democratic discourse and disrupting democratic processes, and that fake news … itself destroys the quality of discourse in democracy and undermines the relationship between citizens and their government," Donahoe said.

Speaking from personal experience, Rasha Abdulla, associate professor in the Journalism and Mass Communication department at the American University of Cairo, agreed. She said that in the past few weeks, her government has been blocking websites, particularly news websites. "Right now, we are estimating that between 53 and 57 websites, mostly news websites, independent websites, have been blocked. "So, if you block sources to proper independent journalism, you are only left with fake news. I mean, where else are you going to get the news," Abdulla said. Social media groups such as Facebook, Twitter and Google have come under increasing criticism for producing and swiftly disseminating fake news on their sites.

Trump with the help of breitbart has succeeded in making supporters think real reporters are fake and yellow journalism and reality shows are news.
these are the same kinds of people who thought Haley's comet was Armageddon in the early 1900s. those people were duped by preachers passing the plate. today's are duped into contributing to online bs and even $5000 a plate dinners to help fund vice president Pence's legal fees.

Yes -- Trump and Bannon have borrowed liberally from the Putin propaganda machine. Any news article that isn't pro-Trump is automatically labeled as fake news. Rather than employ critical thinking, the Trump base buys into this lazy yet effective methodology 100%.
