Kerry Gershaneck: China’s Political Warfare and Media Warfare Against Taiwan and the US

Professor Kerry Gershaneck is an expert on China’s unrestricted warfare tactics. His book “Political Warfare” details the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) extensive campaigns to target western democracies. He joins me to talk about his new book, “Media Warfare: Taiwan’s Battle for the Cognitive Domain.”

We outline the ultimate goal of the CCP’s media warfare against Taiwan, which includes an emphasis on social media warfare in the new age of information. Chinese state media have shifted online to target key audiences, mobilizing their own propaganda soldiers in a digital disinformation invasion. 

We also discuss the CCP’s export of their totalitarian working model, including another campaign to discredit the democratic western rules. Gershaneck breaks it down.
