What does Francesca Tripodi have in common with the Evangelical Christians she studied? They both do their own research, and they find lots of propaganda. This week on Reimagining, Francesca gives us a crash course on the sprawling conservative disinformation ecosystem.
Francesca Tripodi’s The Propagandists’ Playbook: How Conservative Elites Manipulate Search and Threaten Democracy is out now on Yale University Press. She is an assistant professor at UNC Chapel Hill at the School of Information and Library Science and a senior faculty researcher at the Center for Information Technology and Public Life.
