From Facebook to Talking Points Memo to the New York Times, often what looks like fact-based journalism is not. It´s advertising. Not only are ads indistinguishable from reporting, the Internet we rely on for news, opinions, and even impartial sales content is now the ultimate corporate tool. Listener beware: content without a corporate sponsor lurking behind it is rare indeed. Black Ops Advertising dissects this rapid rise of ´´sponsored content´´, a strategy whereby advertisers have become publishers and publishers create advertising - all under the guise of unbiased information. Covert selling, mostly in the form of native advertising and content marketing, has so blurred the lines between editorial content and marketing message that it is next to impossible to tell real news from paid endorsements. In the 21st century, instead of telling us to buy, buy, BUY, marketers ´´engage´´ with us so that we share, share, SHARE - the ultimate subtle sell. Why should this concern us? Because personal data, personal relationships, and our very identities are being repackaged in pursuit of corporate profits. Because tracking and manipulation of data make ´´likes´´ and tweets and followers the currency of importance, rather than scientific achievement or artistic talent or information the electorate needs to fully function in a democracy. And because we are being manipulated to spend time with technology, to interact with ´´friends,´´ to always be on, even when it is to our physical and mental detriment. 1. Language: English.

Right now, you are in a battle to protect yourself and your family from hackers, and there is no white knight on horseback galloping to your rescue. Most of the so-called ´´experts´´ in the yellow pages are upstarts who, in most cases, know just as much as you about the problem but compensate by using virus scan programs that offer the illusion of expertise. Most computers have boilerplate antivirus software and perhaps some sort of firewall, but this is hardly enough to thwart malicious hackers from breaching your system. The weakest link in cybersecurity is the human factor. You´ll get an email that looks like it´s from your boss or child´s school, you´ll click the link, and in microseconds your computer is contaminated with a virus that incapacitates your PC and you realize you´ve just been pwned! Not all hackers are bad, but those who have malicious intent are typically categorized as script kiddies, hacktivists, mercenaries, or state sponsored. Each group carries with it a different motivation, target to breach, and data it seeks to exfiltrate. Script kiddies will typically wreak sporadic techno-chaos using cut-and-paste scripting methods from content they find on deep web hacker forums. Hacktivists usually target organizations of affiliates who are aligned with other organizations and affiliates that this category of hacker-activists deem ethically or economically corrupt or sided with the wrong side of group ideology. Mercenary hackers will typically be part of a criminal enterprise that seeks financial gain for its activity and can work for crime syndicates or state sponsors. And finally, state-sponsored hackers will work for a government and target specific organizations and data for espionage and political motivation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Rhodes.
