Countering propaganda is critical to the ability of governments to maintain credibility and legitimacy, especially in Eastern Europe. Additionally, educating citizens on how to determine whether media is factual and unbiased or biased and disinformation is more and more important as a societal and political challenge. Perhaps most importantly is the need to reestablish local media as a trusted source of news and opinion. This paper examines the interplay between citizens, governments and media as a strategy to counter propaganda in Eastern Europe.
