Excerpt


Meet the scammers, extremists, and spies behind disinformation. Jokesters make up crazy conspiracies to fool gullible people, while trolls deliberately stir up turmoil to watch the world burn. Extremists create false stories that drive their followers to violence, while enemy hackers test ways to divide us. While their motives differ, the deceivers share a disregard for truth and human lives. Exposing their tactics and mindsets robs them of their power to manipulate us from the shadows. Shining light on their lies motivates us to reject their frauds.


Deepfakes swap faces and voices using neural networks. Text generators, like ChatGPT, imitate human writing on any topic. Image algorithms fabricate scenes and objects. The core technologies enabling this automated mass deception include machine learning, AI models, training data, natural language processing, and specialized algorithms.


On hidden online forums, unsavory characters share tips to maximize manipulation. Con artists trade secrets on targeting human emotions while evading the law. They sell ready-made fakery tools to anyone, no questions asked. They brag about past disinformation campaigns that destabilized entire countries. Exposing the inner workings of these back channels reveals the cold inhumanity behind attacks on truth—and motivates us to demand integrity.


Disinformers profit from ads, donations, merchandise sales, and data collection. Ad revenue and video view royalties rake in millions for fake con-tent creators. Their narratives motivate donors to fund operations. Private data harvested from Facebook and TikTok gets auctioned off. When lies go viral, platforms and creators cash in. These profitable feedback loops incentivize engineering even more potent deceptions. Cutting off revenue sources is critical to starving disinformers.
