There are unprecedented efforts by special interests including political parties, corporations and our own U.S. government, to control the information you see on the news and online. This week on Full Measure in The Sum of Knowledge, we dig into the tactics used by paid forces to manipulate opinion. These include fake social media accounts operated by software and paid actors; zombie profiles; zombie likes; and “Fake News.”
Also Sunday, Joce Sterman examines what changes in police work could be in store under the Trump administration. Under President Obama, some police say they felt unsupported and, as a result, it’s feared that some backed off of using aggressive tactics in communities that need policing the most. Will things be different under a Trump Department of Justice?
