09 Dec 2019 Polish Parliamentary Elections followed through Facebook disinformation channels
The monitoring of pro-Kremlin disinformation and propaganda on Facebook in the context of the elections to the Polish parliament shows that there was less activity in this regard than during the campaign in the run-up to the European Parliament elections.
Another difference between the two is that the recent one included less occurrences of particular narratives. More focus was put on techniques which were used to target political opponents. The Civic Coalition (Koalicja Obywatelska) was portrayed negatively 36 times, while the ruling Law and Justice Party (Prawo i Sprawiedliwość), received 17 negative posts from the analysed channels.
Other parties/coalitions were almost ignored by the monitored outlets.
The data was collected between 1.9.2019 and 13.10.2019 from 14 relevant Facebook pages identified as producing disinformation content and pro-Kremlin narratives.
