Description

"The Disinformation Age assembles a remarkable group of historians, political scientists, and communication scholars to examine the historical and political origins of the post-fact information era, focusing on the United States but with lessons for other democracies." Chapter 5, Why and How the Koch Network Uses Disinformation to Thwart Democracy by Nancy MacLean, is a remarkable overview of the Koch efforts.
