I found this interesting set of videos tonight, by Jon Ronson, who many of you will know of as the author of the books "Them: Adventures with
Extremists" and "The Men who stare at Goats". It's a series about people who are trying to control the internet. The first one covers a strange
story about a fake video that was designed to smear the flotilla groups. It was tweeted widely by Israeli government departments. The second is
about the healthcare insurance industry and their fake blogs. The third part returns to the Isreal story.
More parts are promised soon, I will be subscribing, looks like it will be a great series about how disinfo/propaganda online is happening.
