    How effective to do we think these attempts to sway the narrative are? If we identify Sputnik or RT for what they are, we can actively avoid their content and their narrative. So does the attempt at ignoring the propogandization or manipulation of public opinion make them meaningless as a result? If your target rejects the narrative, and only those already predisposed to agreeing with your stance accept it, does it sway anything to your cause?

    This is definitely one area the US needs to get better in. Can we identify one or more effectors on the US part to sway public views in the same way RT or Sputnik do online and televised?

    I think the mainstream media has more government influence than we think, look at how the Iraq war started and how it was built up on tv. Actually if you look at most media outlets in the US and around the world they are always proliferating government information, on the other side of the coin you see alternate media outlets proliferating information from adversary countries. Alot of our alternate media uses Russian media outlets as sources, in Russia the alternate media uses American sources.

    Wierd **** going on. :scratching head:
