Disinformation: How It Works

There was a time, not too long ago (relatively speaking), that governments and the groups of elites that controlled them did not find it necessary to conscript themselves into wars of disinformation.

Propaganda was relatively straightforward. The lies were much simpler. The control of information flow was easily directed. Rules were enforced with the threat of property confiscation and execution for anyone who strayed from the rigid socio-political structure. Those who had theological, metaphysical or scientific information outside of the conventional and scripted collective world view were tortured and slaughtered. The elites kept the information to themselves, and removed its remnants from mainstream recognition, sometimes for centuries before it was rediscovered.

With the advent of anti-feudalism, and most importantly the success of the American Revolution, elitists were no longer able to dominate information with the edge of a blade or the barrel of a gun. The establishment of Republics, with their philosophy of open government and rule by the people, compelled Aristocratic minorities to plot more subtle ways of obstructing the truth and thus maintaining their hold over the world without exposing themselves to retribution from the masses. Thus, the complex art of disinformation was born.

The technique, the “magic” of the lie, was refined and perfected. The mechanics of the human mind and the human soul became an endless obsession for the establishment.

The goal was malicious, but socially radical; instead of expending the impossible energy needed to dictate the very form and existence of the truth, they would allow it to drift, obscured in a fog of contrived data. They would wrap the truth in a Gordian Knot of misdirection and fabrication so elaborate that they felt certain the majority of people would surrender, giving up long before they ever finished unraveling the deceit. The goal was not to destroy the truth, but to hide it in plain sight.

In modern times, and with carefully engineered methods, this goal has for the most part been accomplished. However, these methods also have inherent weaknesses. Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly.

In this article, we will examine the methods used to fertilize and promote the growth of disinformation, as well as how to identify the roots of disinformation and effectively cut them, starving out the entire system of fallacies once and for all.

Media Disinformation Methods

The mainstream media, once tasked with the job of investigating government corruption and keeping elitists in line, has now become nothing more than a public relations firm for corrupt officials and their Globalist handlers. The days of the legitimate “investigative reporter” are long gone (if they ever existed at all), and journalism itself has deteriorated into a rancid pool of so called “TV Editorialists” who treat their own baseless opinions as supported fact.

The elitist co-opting of news has been going on in one form or another since the invention of the printing press. However, the first methods of media disinformation truly came to fruition under the supervision of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who believed the truth was “subjective” and open to his personal interpretation.

Some of the main tactics used by the mainstream media to mislead the masses are as follows:

Lie Big, Retract Quietly: Mainstream media sources (especially newspapers) are notorious for reporting flagrantly dishonest and unsupported news stories on the front page, then quietly retracting those stories on the very back page when they are caught. In this case, the point is to railroad the lie into the collective consciousness. Once the lie is finally exposed, it is already too late, and a large portion of the population will not notice or care when the truth comes out.

Unconfirmed Or Controlled Sources As Fact: Cable news venues often cite information from “unnamed” sources, government sources that have an obvious bias or agenda, or “expert” sources without providing an alternative “expert” view. The information provided by these sources is usually backed by nothing more than blind faith.

Calculated Omission: Otherwise known as “cherry picking” data. One simple piece of information or root item of truth can derail an entire disinfo news story, so instead of trying to gloss over it, they simply pretend as if it doesn’t exist. When the fact is omitted, the lie can appear entirely rational. This tactic is also used extensively when disinformation agents and crooked journalists engage in open debate.

Distraction, And The Manufacture Of Relevance: Sometimes the truth wells up into the public awareness regardless of what the media does to bury it. When this occurs their only recourse is to attempt to change the public’s focus and thereby distract them from the truth they were so close to grasping. The media accomplishes this by “over-reporting” on a subject that has nothing to do with the more important issues at hand. Ironically, the media can take an unimportant story, and by reporting on it ad nauseum, cause many Americans to assume that because the media won’t shut-up about it, it must be important!

Dishonest Debate Tactics: Sometimes, men who actually are concerned with the average American’s pursuit of honesty and legitimate fact-driven information break through and appear on T.V. However, rarely are they allowed to share their views or insights without having to fight through a wall of carefully crafted deceit and propaganda. Because the media know they will lose credibility if they do not allow guests with opposing viewpoints every once in a while, they set up and choreograph specialized T.V. debates in highly restrictive environments which put the guest on the defensive, and make it difficult for them to clearly convey their ideas or facts.

TV pundits are often trained in what are commonly called “Alinsky Tactics.” Saul Alinsky was a moral relativist, and champion of the lie as a tool for the “greater good”; essentially, a modern day Machiavelli. His “Rules for Radicals” were supposedly meant for grassroots activists who opposed the establishment and emphasized the use of any means necessary to defeat one’s political opposition. But is it truly possible to defeat an establishment built on lies, by use of even more elaborate lies, and by sacrificing one’s ethics? In reality, his strategies are the perfect format for corrupt institutions and governments to dissuade dissent from the masses. Today, Alinsky’s rules are used more often by the establishment than by its opposition.
Alinsky’s Strategy: Win At Any Cost, Even If You Have To Lie

Alinsky’s tactics have been adopted by governments and disinformation specialists across the world, but they are most visible in TV debate. While Alinsky sermonized about the need for confrontation in society, his debate tactics are actually designed to circumvent real and honest confrontation of opposing ideas with slippery tricks and diversions. Alinsky’s tactics, and their modern usage, can be summarized as follows:

1) Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.

We see this tactic in many forms. For example, projecting your own movement as mainstream, and your opponent’s as fringe. Convincing your opponent that his fight is a futile one. Your opposition may act differently, or even hesitate to act at all, based on their perception of your power. How often have we heard this line: “The government has predator drones. There is nothing the people can do now…” This is a projection of exaggerated invincibility designed to elicit apathy from the masses.

2) Never go outside the experience of your people, and whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.

Don’t get drawn into a debate about a subject you do not know as well as or better than your opposition. If possible, draw them into such a situation instead. Go off on tangents. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty in your opposition. This is commonly used against unwitting interviewees on cable news shows whose positions are set up to be skewered. The target is blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address. In television and radio, this also serves to waste broadcast time to prevent the target from expressing his own position.

3) Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

The objective is to target the opponent’s credibility and reputation by accusations of hypocrisy. If the tactician can catch his opponent in even the smallest misstep, it creates an opening for further attacks, and distracts away from the broader moral question.

4) Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

“Ron Paul is a crackpot.” “Gold bugs are crazy.” “Constitutionalists are fringe extremists.” Baseless ridicule is almost impossible to counter because it is meant to be irrational. It infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage. It also works as a pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

5) A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

The popularization of the term “Teabaggers” is a classic example; it caught on by itself because people seem to think it’s clever, and enjoy saying it. Keeping your talking points simple and fun helps your side stay motivated, and helps your tactics spread autonomously, without instruction or encouragement.

6) A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

See rule No. 5. Don’t become old news. If you keep your tactics fresh, it’s easier to keep your people active. Not all disinformation agents are paid. The “useful idiots” have to be motivated by other means. Mainstream disinformation often changes gear from one method to the next and then back again.

7) Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. Never give the target a chance to rest, regroup, recover or re-strategize. Take advantage of current events and twist their implications to support your position. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

8) The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

This goes hand in hand with Rule No. 1. Perception is reality. Allow your opposition to expend all of its energy in expectation of an insurmountable scenario. The dire possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.

9) The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

The objective of this pressure is to force the opposition to react and make the mistakes that are necessary for the ultimate success of the campaign.

10) If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

As grassroots activism tools, Alinsky tactics have historically been used (for example, by labor movements or covert operations specialists) to force the opposition to react with violence against activists, which leads to popular sympathy for the activists’ cause. Today, false (or co-opted) grassroots movements and revolutions use this technique in debate as well as in planned street actions and rebellions (look at Syria for a recent example).

11) The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. Today, this is often used offensively against legitimate activists, such as the opponents of the Federal Reserve. Complain that your opponent is merely “pointing out the problems.” Demand that they offer not just “a solution”, but THE solution. Obviously, no one person has “the” solution. When he fails to produce the miracle you requested, dismiss his entire argument and all the facts he has presented as pointless.

12) Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.

Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. The target’s supporters will expose themselves. Go after individual people, not organizations or institutions. People hurt faster than institutions.

The next time you view an MSM debate, watch the pundits carefully, you will likely see many if not all of the strategies above used on some unsuspecting individual attempting to tell the truth.
Internet Disinformation Methods

Internet trolls, also known as “paid posters” or “paid bloggers,” are increasingly and openly being employed by private corporations as well governments, often for marketing purposes and for “public relations” (Obama is notorious for this practice). Internet “trolling” is indeed a fast growing industry.

Trolls use a wide variety of strategies, some of which are unique to the internet, here are just a few:

1. Make outrageous comments designed to distract or frustrate: An Alinsky tactic used to make people emotional, although less effective because of the impersonal nature of the Web.

2. Pose as a supporter of the truth, then make comments that discredit the movement: We have seen this even on our own forums — trolls pose as supporters of the Liberty Movement, then post long, incoherent diatribes so as to appear either racist or insane. The key to this tactic is to make references to common Liberty Movement arguments while at the same time babbling nonsense, so as to make those otherwise valid arguments seem ludicrous by association. In extreme cases, these “Trojan Horse Trolls” have been known to make posts which incite violence — a technique obviously intended to solidify the false assertions of the think tank propagandists like the SPLC, which purports that Constitutionalists should be feared as potential domestic terrorists.

3. Dominate Discussions: Trolls often interject themselves into productive Web discussions in order to throw them off course and frustrate the people involved.

4. Prewritten Responses: Many trolls are supplied with a list or database with pre-planned talking points designed as generalized and deceptive responses to honest arguments. When they post, their words feel strangely plastic and well rehearsed.

5. False Association: This works hand in hand with item No. 2, by invoking the stereotypes established by the “Trojan Horse Troll.” For example: calling those against the Federal Reserve “conspiracy theorists” or “lunatics”; deliberately associating anti-globalist movements with racists and homegrown terrorists, because of the inherent negative connotations; and using false associations to provoke biases and dissuade people from examining the evidence objectively.

6. False Moderation: Pretending to be the “voice of reason” in an argument with obvious and defined sides in an attempt to move people away from what is clearly true into a “grey area” where the truth becomes “relative.”

7. Straw Man Arguments: A very common technique. The troll will accuse his opposition of subscribing to a certain point of view, even if he does not, and then attacks that point of view. Or, the troll will put words in the mouth of his opposition, and then rebut those specific words.

Sometimes, these strategies are used by average people with serious personality issues. However, if you see someone using these tactics often, or using many of them at the same time, you may be dealing with a paid internet troll.

Stopping Disinformation

The best way to disarm disinformation agents is to know their methods inside and out. This gives us the ability to point out exactly what they are doing in detail the moment they try to do it. Immediately exposing a disinformation tactic as it is being used is highly destructive to the person utilizing it. It makes them look foolish, dishonest and weak for even making the attempt. Internet trolls most especially do not know how to handle their methods being deconstructed right in front of their eyes and usually fold and run from debate when it occurs.

The truth is precious. It is sad that there are so many in our society who have lost respect for it; people who have traded in their conscience and their soul for temporary financial comfort while sacrificing the stability and balance of the rest of the country in the process.

The human psyche breathes on the air of truth. Without it, humanity cannot survive. Without it, the species will collapse, starving from lack of intellectual and emotional sustenance.

Disinformation does not only threaten our insight into the workings of our world; it makes us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding, and doubt: all things that lead to destruction. It can drive good people to commit terrible atrocities against others, or even against themselves. Without a concerted and organized effort to diffuse mass-produced lies, the future will look bleak indeed.

so the question becomes... is this post about disinformation a disinformation attempt to convalute disinformation recognition or is my even asking this a disinformation tactic in itself?

let me know but i'm not sure i'll trust your information.

Thinkers gonna think regardless of anything spewed at them. It's the people who don't, who are given falsified information, that affect the status quo negatively. Because of some bullshit they watched on TV, things automatically become the truth. Oh lawd why.

Truth, Reason and Mathematics. I have found that by the time a child is 5 years old, they can understand clearly that the entire government is one big criminal organization and that everything they say and do is a lie. After Bernanke's little speech to the children the other day, it has become clear that the war has shifted to even younger minds. Don't let your children watch TV, not even cartoons, if you want them to have a chance of surviving whats coming at them, which would be slavery to the wealthy for eternity.

How many of you Zerohedgers have been brainwashed to think that "Money is created as Debt"?

They tricked you... 

Money is created as Credit.

They print it and spend it on themselves and their friends, and then we get stuck with their tab.

See Troll comments below

1.  Create monopoly printing money.

2.  Use the FOMC to give the money to your friends.

3.  Buy the media, Washington DC, military, and get the gentiles to kill Arabs.

4.  Fire as many dissenters as possible in every aspect of the economy as possible.

5.  Control education with unions and teach useless fairy tales and bull shit to make the unthinking masses useless in figuring out the rip off.

6.  The above has worked for 100 years, kudos to our Yid masters.

Great work, Brandon.

Thank you.

You know, that “Teabagger”  label is effective on multiple levels in this lowest common denominator society.

I believe it was (fittingly) first applied by the D list skank, Janeane Garofalo.

Every person that has ever used it to describe the Tea Partiers is a collectivist tool.

Chrome Child's picture

I think they started the Tea Bagger tag because at first the Tea peeps had tea bags hanging off of their hats, shirts, and the like - to express their point. The problem was they didn't reference Urban Dictionary and change their wardrobe before the MSM got to them...

I am very confident that Garafalo was fully aware of the urban connotation when she was doing her rant.

It surprised me to see some of the less caustic types in media using the term.

Garafalo is more the collectivist mechanic in this case and the less aware are tools.

Lets say I'm Ben Bernanke and you and I, just the two of us, land on an island (like Robinson Crusoe) and I loan you $100 at 1% interest. You can never, as long as you live, no matter what, ever be able to pay it off unless I print that extra Dollar and loan it to you. You could then pay me back the $101, but you would still owe me that extra $1 (plus interest). Since there is no parellel universe for you to borrow it from, and if you print it I will arrest you for counterfeiting, I got you by the balls, so I foreclose on and reposses your half of the Island. Seems fair enough to me. That is exactly how the government stole everyones land, homes and businesses. Now, let's see how the Trolls respond to this in the comments below:

"Down arrows can sometimes be an exellent indicator that you are really pissing the trolls off."


Up and down voting are just ways to manipulate public opinion.

The majority are just trying to fit in, they are scared of being social pariahs.

Upvoting is positive reinforcement, and downvoting negative.

Those with upvotes can feel witty and part of something. Upvoting moves people in a certain direction.

Voting also allows sites to track opinions.

You think there isn't an agenda at ZH?

Hell you can't even prove that up and down votes are enacted by individuals instead of groups of paid posters or the admins.

You assume it is organic not planned.

he arrows can be used for manipulation by TROLLS, or they can also be indicative of support, agreement or even enthusiasm

Gully, why don't you go jump off a bridge or just shoot yourself in the head and get it over with

sleepingbeauty's picture

In this case I think Gully is right. We are all conditioned to do things that result in positive praise. That is how I conditioned my kids. It stops them from putting their hands on the hot stove etc. It is very difficult to undo this training. Some kids are given praise for thinking logically (and anti-parent) and some seek negative feedback because the positive never happens. But these are in the minority. 

I find myself upvoting funny things that agree with the ZH crowd. I probably would not in another crowd where the ZH message is received with hostility. I consider myself a fairly independant thinker, but it may be all artiface. Maybe I am just a sheep who thinks I look like a wolf.

I love that quote, as it explains why people can be so clueless.

"I love that quote, as it explains why people can be so clueless.
Because they WANT to be." - - pods

Stupidity, cowardice, and laziness probably explains why many are clueless. But there is a majority of the population that don't think in Big Picture, long time frames. They prefer to deal with the more immediate - 'hands on' matters that they consider more 'practical'. There are also many people who are traditionalist, straight-shooter types who follow the rules and don't like to rock the boat -much less think outside the box of what is conventional.

These people aren't stupid. They are often very good at thinking on their feet, and 'rolling with the punches' that life throws at them. But, if you get into discussion about the economy and long term trends, they may begin to fidget and their eyes glaze over. Trying to push them to see using arguments usually doesn't work. They need to see/feel the impact of what is going on in their lives personally, first.

Bottomline point I'm making - - - time will tell.  Not enough Americans feel a high enough level of pain yet. When they do, who knows what the results will be.  I don't think we can judge , (based on current experience trying to 'wake' people up), what will happen in the future. What we tell them today, may all come together and make sense to them at a later date.

Note:  the differences in how temperment impacts how people view and act in the world can be studied by checking out the work of Myers-Briggs and MBTI theory. This has helped with my patience level when dealing with people who now seem clueless.

Labels and groups accomplish the same thing. The whole purpose of our two party system is to control thought. Get someone committed to supporting one side vs the other and you have them trapped. Even if they only marginally support one side, and no matter how much lip service the give to being "independent", the hook is set.

bankruptcylawyer's picture

there is some arrogance in this. not everyone is super genius critical thinker. there are no discrete lines of 'critical' thinkingness, just like 'intelligence'.

propoganda will fool even the smartest people some of the time, because the truth behind the propoganda isn't readily apparent much of the time in any case.

You must have missed this part:

"The truth is precious."

I don't watch any TV.  But I have seen Breaking Bad on DVD.  BB is drama that happens to be on commercial television.  I see a lot of things on DVD.  The only things I watch are on DVD or the Internet.  Those are not the poison of TV.  I wouldn't waste 1 second of my life on commercial television.  Commercial television is complete shit.

We're dead for eternity.  No reason to waste life by watching TV (or playing video games for that matter).  That's not living.

So then some tv is good?

The tv you claim is ok because you have it on dvd instead of watching it the evening of airing.

Once again it isn't tv that is bad.

People have the ability to watch what they CHOOSE.

Just like you do.

If the majority CHOOSES to watch Oprah or Fox, it is a decision they willingly made.

Just as you have.
