Analyzing Propaganda Techniques Used to Disrupt Democracy Worldwide

PBS affiliate WETA has made available a list of propaganda techniques that make false connections (such as the techniques of “transfer” and “testimonial”), or constitute special appeals (such as “bandwagon” and “fear”), or are types of logical fallacy (for example, “unwarranted extrapolation”). The list, which provides definitions and examples, is adapted from Propaganda Critic, a website dedicated to promoting techniques of propaganda analysis among critically minded citizens. In 2018 all of Propaganda Critic’s original content was updated, with the addition of nearly two dozen new articles exploring the rise of computational propaganda, explaining recent research on cognitive biases that influence how individuals interpret and retain information, and presenting recent case studies of how propaganda techniques have been used to disrupt democracy around the world.
