BBC „The Documentary Podcast“: „Ukraine: The disinformation war“

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„British aca­d­e­mics accused of shar­ing Russ­ian dis­in­for­ma­tion about war in Ukraine. They claim there’s a McCarthy­ist witch hunt against them.
Russia’s response to accu­sa­tions of war crimes in Ukraine has been to blame the Ukraini­ans of bomb­ing their own side. Some peo­ple in the UK have been shar­ing this ver­sion of the war on social media. Dri­ven by a con­vic­tion that West­ern gov­ern­ments are respon­si­ble for many of the world’s ills, these aca­d­e­mics, jour­nal­ists and celebri­ties have shared mis­in­for­ma­tion in their attempts to raise ques­tions about the offi­cial nar­ra­tive of the war. Their detrac­tors say they are use­ful to Vladimir Putin. They claim there’s a McCarthy­ist witch hunt against them. All wars are fought as much in the infor­ma­tion space as on the bat­tle field and Chloe Had­ji­math­eou looks at where the new red lines are being drawn in an age of dis­in­for­ma­tion.“
