Politics War Room with James Carville and Al Hunt

The Information War with Peter Pomerantsev

June 6, 2024

In This Episode:

James and Al defend Dr. Fauci and analyze Biden’s improving electoral prospects after the Trump trial verdict and the recent primaries before welcoming propaganda expert Peter Pomerantsev.  They discuss how the successful British information campaign against the Nazis broadcast from an in-group and absurdist perspective to undermine the party’s leadership and created a safe space for dissenters to criticize the regime.  Then they look at how similar techniques could be used to undermine Putin and explore how a campaign based on personal stories could boost support for Ukraine and help win elections.
