Abstract: French protesters in anti-vaccine demonstrations from 2021 accused journalists of collaboration. However, an in-depth study of French internet news media revealed that journalists widely covered the events. Findings indicate that the internet continues to be a beachhead against oppressive censorship. Furthermore, strong support of unbiased journalism can reduce public distrust of the press and improve social discourse.
Abstract: Information operations have played an important role in the nation since insurgent efforts in the early 1990s. Mexico began a stark decline after the start of the drug-war in 2006, in which the government violently countered criminal cartels with military force. Since then, Mexico has executed information operations of varying complexity. To examine current Mexican information operations, a historical account of such operations was created and compared with present time activity via an in-depth study using structured analytic techniques.
