ANTI-WESTERN PROPAGANDA, 2017

This report is the analysis of the results of a-year-long monitoring conducted by the Media Development Foundation (MDF) throughout 2017. The monitoring aimed at studying the typology of anti-Western messages and fake news in the Georgian media. The subjects of monitoring were media outlets as well as other sources – politicians, clergy, civil organizations and representatives of society.

The MDF conducted similar studies in 2016 and 2014-2015 too. The study has been carried out in partnership with UN Association of Georgia within the framework of USAID’s Promoting Integration, Tolerance and Awareness Program (PITA).

This report covers the period from 1 January to 31 December 2017. The introductory part of the report provides key findings of the study, the study methodology and the aggregate quantitative data by sources. The second part overviews propaganda strategy and methods. The final part of the report presents profiles of those sources that were most frequently spreeding anti-western narratives.
