Disinfo warning (via Bloomberg ) The former deputy commander of the Department for Active Measures and Disinformation in the Soviet-directed Czechoslovak intelligence service (now a university prof in the US) on fake news.  "To create the kind of disinformation that changes the world , he told me, you need a story that’s at least 60, 70 or even 80 percent true."  

My take:  We complain about disinformation today, but we've been embracing establishment disinfo for decades... from WMDs to a blameless financial crisis.   We accepted it when we were told that transferring a trillion dollars a year in manufacturing to China wouldn't hurt us economically or when we're told America is moving ahead economically when we haven't seen an increase in media n income for 40 years (outside of the DC area) or that nation building in Afghanistan is the way forward when there is no chance of it ever working.
