The vast sums of money were allocated to the training of journalists, support of independent mass media, holding of forums and seminars. Despite the fact that Donald Trump has criticized the anti-Russian rhetoric of his predecessor, essentially, nothing has been changed. And the programs started by the Obama administration are being still implemented.
The European and American publishers tarnish the image of Russia keeping with the best traditions of the Cold War era. And being financed from the US state budget, these organizations proceed training journalists as part of the information war.
So, in September 2016 the US Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) released the information about the VOA’s journalists training to work for it and communicate with the Russian-speaking audience using social networks. These journalists knew about the ways of audience attraction, establishing the communication with audience using chatbot applications.
Besides, during 2017 the BBG plans to increase the number of digital media in the Baltic states, the South Caucasus and the Central Asia in order to dominate over the Russian information sources. The major focus is put on attracting “authoritative young users” living in Russia. “Fighting with Russian false information campaign” will become the priority task for the Voice of America in 2018.
The Voice of America is interested in social media platforms because their audience is bigger than the traditional mass media audience. People think that information published on social media platforms is more reliable. There is an illusion that barrier between the information and the method of its presentation is absent.
Many experts believe that the true aim of this training is to select staff for promoting American ideas. Besides the journalists qualification growth, they were given the detailed recommendations how to cover particular issues.
The government- funded mass media are ready to pay much more than the independent information agencies. That is why the staff members keep their job and fulfill any political orders of their employers without taking into account the state interests of their own countries.
You're worried about social media warfare and pseudo-democratic elections ... Meanwhile, the military-intelligence bureaucracy continues to develop electromagnetic weapons for full-spectrum dominance of human systems. JADE HELM 15(Joint assistant for development and execution), had explicitly stated that AI integration is for full-spectrum dominance of the human domain. Social media is low level tool for commercial/military intelligence operations. People willingly sign up and participate, they want technocracy. Brainwashing is a social-psychological side-effect of media, and that is what people pay attention to, they never bring up the gene-washing effect. Smart-phones, computers, nano-polymers, CRISPR, smart-cars, smart-fridges, geoengineering, weather-modification, electromagnetic atmosphere experiments, energy weapons, etc- establish a militarized template for full-spectrum dominance of the human domain. Once the internet of things is fully implemented functional and normalized, average people will incrementally expose their neurophysiology to epi-genetic genewashing. Behavioral-psychologists can use neuroplastic events to support technocratic-infrastructure.
Militarized information systems augment the human domain, control the environment and you can control the organisms inside the environment. You should be posting this in the 'biological circus' forum, because the political circus is a superficial game played by useful idiots. You're 10-15 years too late, but that is the business of 'leaks.' When a leak occurs, it will appear in front of the populace after the 'fact.' In other-words, the government can bypass public opinion/disclosure and just 'leak' the information later and say "deal with it." And the best part of the exoteric cultural program- had someone mentioned the possibility of 'social media as a tool for information warfare' 10-15 years ago, society would call em a conspiracy theorist or nutter.
Reality check, we're entering the quantum age of information, we developed nuclear weapons in 1945, yet you're worried about social media being used as a tool for information warfare.
The public will always be living in the technological past, because that is the nature of classified/compartmentalized research and development. You're one guinea pig in the global laboratory, bro.viewtopic.php?t=166559
Natural monopolies are a well described thing in economics with countless examples throughout history. Just because you aren't familiar with the term doesn't mean you are absolved from googling it before accusing me of making stuff up.
Yes... Yes... Get upset, bicker over superficial things. Good guinea pig.
