This Is Not Propaganda

by Peter Pomerantsev

This Is Not Propaganda

Peter Pomerantsev

Overview

Propaganda is nothing new. For centuries, the powerful have spread information to the public that advances their own interests. But today, social media and the internet have allowed propagandists to practice their art in previously unimaginable ways.

Born to dissident parents in Soviet Ukraine, Peter Pomerantsev is a writer, TV producer, and director of the London School of Economics Arena research program to address disinformation. In This Is Not Propaganda, Pomerantsev explores how the strategies of propagandists are changing; instead of trying to seem truthful, propagandists now seek to discredit the very idea of pursuing truth.

Pomerantsev's topics include shady PR companies trying to influence elections, the origins of modern disinformation in 2000s Russia, and our desperation for meaning amid the destruction of established social identities.

"I hear the same phrases in Odessa, Manila, Mexico City, New Jersey: 'There is so much information, misinformation, so much of everything that I don't know what's true anymore.'"
