Network Propaganda

Manipulation, Disinformation, and Radicalization in American Politics

Yochai Benkler, Robert Faris, and Hal Roberts

  • Overturns the conventional wisdom that new technologies and foreign agents swung the 2016 election in Trump's favour and drove the current sense of a "post-truth" media landscape
  • Presents the most comprehensive study yet published on contemporary political communication in America, analysing millions of news stories, social media shares, and offline media coverage
  • Traces the history of political polarization and the radicalization of the American right wing
  • Challenges popular proposals for media reform and presents alternative ideas that tackle the longer term issues in American democracy
