Disinformation

Disinformation is false information, intended to mislead.

Local information was usually true back when most people lived in small villages and personally knew everyone else. But as cities and nations and governments grew larger, much so-called information put out has been secretly turned into disinformation intended to deceive.

As events happen, it is difficult to figure out what the truth really is because the media is full of spin and lies told by those who want to conceal the truth.

But following the events, investigative filmmakers are able to dig out the truth and put together docudramas and documentaries to tell us what actually happened and what is really true.

This is the value of Must-See Movies that can reveal the truth.

DISINFORMATION FILMS

Much so-called information put out that has been secretly turned into disinformation intended to deceive comes in the form of sound bites and brief segments woven into ostensible news coverage. So it can be difficult to figure out what the truth really is because the media is full of spin and lies told by those who want to conceal the truth.

But following the events, investigative filmmakers are able to dig out the truth and put together docudramas and documentaries to tell us what actually happened and what is really true.

To counter this investigative film journalism, occasionally corporations or industries will produce an entire disinformation film in an attempt to counteract the effects of an investigative journalism film that they see as counter to their financial interests. But often these industry films can easily be seen as the propaganda they actually are.

FILMS THAT ARE EXAMPLES OF PROPAGANDA

The definition of Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.

Propaganda Posing as Documentaries: Keep in mind that a documentary can tell lies even though it claims veracity which fiction doesn’t. Some documentaries may be made to discredit some person, organization, or system.

For example, after the acclaimed film GASLAND gained widespread popularity and credibility by exposing the dangers of fracking, a different film titled FRACKNATION was produced that appears to be a film put out by the gas and oil industries to counteract Gasland. In FrackNation, journalist Phelim McAleer sets out to defend fracking, the controversial method of natural gas extraction. The documentary feels like simply a pro-fracking rebuttal to the anti-fracking Gasland. Maybe I’m a bit skeptical and jaded but it feels like something a gas company would produce to promote their cause. An actual documentary might spend a few minutes examining common concerns without trying so hard to paint a picture of activists bullying poor farmers. Weak documentary with very little scientific information. But you should see both films and judge for yourself.

Another example of what appears to be a disinformation film is WINDFALL, an attempt to supposedly expose a downside of wind turbines. Director Laura Israel focuses on some supposedly harmful facets of harnessing wind power, including the constant noise and potential for financial opportunism. This could have been much better balanced. Most of it covered the locals’ opinions as to whether they wanted wind turbines. Documenting the angst of the residents seems to have been the whole point of the project rather than a realistic pros-and-cons approach. Extremely disappointed in this. I really wanted to know if there are any proven negatives to windpower. I wasn’t exposed to any in this film. I already knew that people don’t want change, especially in their own neighborhoods. But just because someone says something negative does not make it true, and all I was given is say-so that I was expected to accept as researched fact. I am very interested in finding out who funded this and what the agenda was to do so. Believe me, I am fine with watching one-sided documentaries that are filled with facts backing up that one side. I can always watch another one-sided documentary filled with facts for the other side.. I am not fine with one-sided documentaries that don’t bother with facts. That is propaganda. But once again you should see the film and judge for yourself.
