‘Trumpaganda’, A New Course At The University Of Illinois

Unic Press UK:  The University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign has a new course Trumpaganda, for studies on the U.S. President Donald Trump’s impact on democracy and the free press.

On its website, the University said that the Course ‘Trumpaganda: The war on facts, press and democracy’ would “examine the Trump administration’s disinformation campaign, its “running war” with the mainstream news media, and their implications for American democracy and a free press.”

The university said that Trump employs common propaganda devices and name-calling to denounce and discredit his opponents as well as the “fake” news media, emphasizing that “by the second year in his presidency, President Trump’s rhetorical attacks on mainstream media continue—he has labeled them the “enemy of the people”—and not only dominate his tweets but also are a centerpiece of his every press conference and public statement. Previous American administrations have had a contentious relationship with the news media, but the Trump administration’s conflict with the press is different in strategies and tactics, challenging Americans’ tendency to think of propaganda as something that doesn’t happen in democratic societies.”
