Model of Disinformation



The purpose of disinformation is to deceive. Large-scale govern-media operations require obedience and acceptance of policy objectives, which typically run contrary to the interest of most people.

Broadly speaking, disinformation can take one of two forms - trying to get the public to believe something which is actually false, and trying to get the public to disbelieve something which is actually true.

A. Acceptance of a false narrative
  1.  Divide the false narrative into component pieces, then repackage each element surrounded by true (but irrelevant) details.
  2. False narrative is presented by a seemingly credible source (expert).
  3. Public swallows the false story piece by piece.

B. Rejection of a true narrative
  1. Divide the truth into component pieces, then repackage each element surrounded by false details. The false details range from plausible to absurd.
  2. Repackaged truth is presented by a lunatic.
  3. Public rejects truth, "throwing the baby out with the bath water".
