The Weaponization of Doubt Re-thinking Erdogan in an Era of Trumpism
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Media Studies, JMK.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-4987-6778
Number of Authors: 12019 (Swedish)In: Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication, ISSN 1873-9857, E-ISSN 1873-9865, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 133-148Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [sv]

In this article, I offer a parallel reading of Erdogan and Trump in order to highlight the extent to which these two leaders have engaged-actively and effectively-in discrediting not only journalistic content (called 'fake news' or 'treason'), but also the very institutions of journalism, institutions that are key agents in international and national power geometries. The parallel reading is particularly useful because, as I argue, Trump and Erdogan can be understood as different nodes on the democratic plane, with clearly overlapping rhetorical and political strategies to meddle with power hierarchies, to reposition the role and status of their respective countries.
