The great disinformation hoax, how the government-created “war against disinformation” became the great moral crusade of its time

 A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century - Tablet Magazine  by Jacob Siegal.

The hoax is "disinformation."  In short, the smoke and mirrors attack against Donald Trump.  For the life of me I can't figure out what the bureaucracy in the federal government were so afraid of.  One minute he's Hitler, then Stalin, then Putin.  When they could find no evidence of anything, they just used the idea of "disinformation." In my opinion [and it seems the author's], the disinformation hoax and techniques were used against us again with the Covid lies and lockdowns. But originally, and maybe for author Siegal, it begins in late December 2016 with Obama and his Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act. The Alvin Bragg crime in New York is just the latest edition of the hoax.

"A false story algorithmically amplified by Twitter and disseminated by the media—it’s no coincidence that this perfectly describes the “bullshit” spread on Twitter about Russian influence operations: In 2017, it was [Clint] Watts who came up with the idea for the Hamilton 68 dashboard and helped spearhead the initiative." 

If you don't want to read it, here's the author explaining it.

The real tragedy is the result: our society has been destroyed by this disinformation hoax all designed by the federal government and its cohorts in social and traditional media. You really can't trust any source or authority, and it has made friend and family foes.
