A Letter to Jenna – Episode #04 – Ohio

Various major political events in recent years have been profoundly influenced by the targeted spread of false information and massive interferences from social networks. This has had devastating effects on the decision-making processes in democratic states and is continuing to threaten to destabilise their societies.

Most recently, an offensive war of aggression has been launched by Vladimir Putin, built on a range of blatant lies, the targeted dissemination of propagandist narratives, false accusations, and deliberate deception within a sphere of diplomatic norms.

›A Letter to Jenna‹ is an ongoing multidisciplinary documentary project exploring the topic of disinformation and focussing on existing counter-movements in consecutive episodes.

Episode #04 follows Ohio-based Tiffany Rumbalski from ComonCause.org in the organisation’s activism on countering disinformation within the U.S. in the immediate run-up to the 2022 midterm elections.
