Mike Hind is an independent journalist specialising in exposing the anatomy of online disinformation. He argues that the phenomenon of ‘fake people’ is more significant than ‘fake news’ in the spreading propaganda. His podcast ‘The Disinformation Age’ focuses deployment of ‘bots’ and ‘sock puppets’ to influence the democratic process by ‘astroturfing’.
