Network Propaganda

Manipulation, Disinformation, and Radicalization in American Politics
by Benkler, Yochai

This is written by folks at the Berkman Centre, Harvard University. It is a close examination of the problems which amplified the voices of the alt right to give Trump a win in 2016. It discusses Facebook manipulation, Cambridge Analytica, Twitter re-tweet bots, Russian interference, and the Breitbart centered media circus.

The network link analysis is impressive, with visualisations that substantiate the authors’ conclusions.

The discussion of mediacloud.org is the highlight of this book for me.
