Cyber-War “What We Don’t, Can’t, and Do Know”

“Have Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President”

by Kathleen Hall Jamieson

 

Jamieson, pre-eminent media analyst of the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania provides the clearest account so far of how the US 2016 presidential election was subverted – not only by the Russian hackers, but by our own social media companies and the mainstream media itself.  This “must read” book contains many visuals, including screen shots of fake ads and the disinformation campaigns that influenced the elections outcome.
