The CRT Moral Panic and PragerU’s role in it: reflections from researchers.
Tom Cowin PhD Student, School of Global Studies, University of Sussex
Rob Dickinson, PhD Student, School of Global Studies, University of Sussex
Prager University is a leading organisation of free online educational information… or is it? PragerU is a registered 501(c)3 organization that promotes far-right politics and it is by no means a university. The deceptive nomenclature is one of many tactics deployed by PragerU to misinform and manipulate the American populace into far-right
radicalisation. Rob Dickinson and Tom Cowin, co-founders of the FRAMES Project (a research project based at the University of Sussex that studies far-right propaganda), discuss their developing research and their recommendations for taking action against misinformation.
