PSYOP Auxiliaries must use all available assets to collect the wide variety of opposing information and propaganda existing in media. Avoid being lured by the obvious propaganda and missing the more subtle and potentially effective propaganda being disseminated. The enemy may deliberately disseminate obvious propaganda to draw collectors away from other events or information. For example, an adversary may put a particularly obnoxious poster on a forum, chat room, or blog, while subtler and potentially more damaging disinformation, hoaxes, opposing information, misinformation and propaganda appears in your local newspaper. A proven method of collecting information is media analysis.
Media analysis is the structured, deliberate tracking and analysis of opponent and neutral media (TV, radio, Internet, and print). Properly performed media analysis, although time-consuming, can identify trends and become predictive. To be truly effective, media analysis must be conducted on a daily basis. There are several good web sites that conduct media analysis as part of a push back against media bias. These bloggers are infowarriors, too, and a resource for counterpropagandists. Records must be kept of the sedition and collaboration of “American” media personalities to better destroy their credibility and bring them to justice, if not in a court of law then in the court of public opinion.
The Internet. Most media outlets maintain web sites on the Internet.These sites frequently have the most recent editions of their reports posted in English. Many governments also maintain official web sites on which they post news releases (with their own slant) and other forms of information. Some of these government-sponsored sites are actually sources of propaganda that should be closely monitored. Monitoring the World Wide Web for adversary propaganda is a basic, entry-level task for new infowarriors
FULL DISCLOSURE: An Army Field Manual was heavily plagiarized or paraphrased above. So far as I know, a manual suitable for civilian volunteer counterpropagandists targeting the American domestic audience does not exist, yet.
