Ep 245 Covert State Sponsored Media feat Kit Klarenberg


Guest: Kit Klarenberg. Kit Klarenberg returns to the show, again with leaked documents related to information and psychological warfare. We discuss his Grayzone article titled: “Leaked files expose Syria psyops veteran astroturfing BreadTube star to counter Covid restriction critics.” In this case a state-sponsored influence operation was created to undermine critics of coronavirus policies and they’re covertly using at least one prominent YouTube personality as their media conduit for elite, establishment, imperial narratives. In a bonus question we talk about strategies for finding genuine media sources and channels. 

Kit Klarenberg is an investigative journalist who explores the role of intelligence services in shaping politics and perceptions and he has been published by numerous media outlets including The Grayzone, Cradle, Electronic Intifada, RT and more.
