Tales From the Front Lines


The Power Vertical Podcast at CEPA

For years, the United States and its allies have been facing a stealthy, clandestine, and persistent disinformation threat from Russia, China, and other hostile actors.

It's an effort that aims to confuse and distract us, to disrupt our democratic processes, to undermine public trust, and to drive wedges in the transatlantic alliance. Some of it is just a rehash of the clumsy Soviet propaganda campaigns we witnessed during the Cold War. And some of it is brand new: a slick, high-tech, next generation effort tailored to exploit the era of digital news and social media.

Listen to episode 74 of the Power Vertical Podcast as Brian Whitmore explores how the United States is defending itself on the front lines from this threat with guests Lea Gabrielle, Special Envoy and Coordinator of the U.S. State Department's Global Engagement Center, and Alina Polyakova, President and CEO of CEPA.
