This only works if you have complete media control, which I have to imagine Ukraine had and probably still has.

In the US, trust in mainstream media has never been lower and even in the slums everyone has devices capable of recording unadulterated video, this is part of what kept Hillary out of the White House. Their models for control are from the 60's and can't account for new additions of options and newer strategies, especially those in the first world.

Also the generation that buys their shit is dying and when the healthcare system fails will drop out en masse, and the newer generations are paranoid and distrusting of everyone, especially Boomer age narratives.

It's going to be a rough time but we'll see things out to the end and and come out the other side stronger.
