This is part of the book “Stéphane Foucart et les néonicotinoïdes. The World and disinformation 1“.
We have shown that the arguments defended by S. Foucart heavily misinformed. Still, they probably seem believable to most readers and are picked up overwhelmingly. How does he do this? In fact, he uses information manipulation techniques to make his case work. I have identified a few that come up often:
- the juxtaposition;
- improper quotation;
- objections management;
- the double standards;
- the shift from a pragmatic logic to a hygienist logic;
- biased presentation of scientific data.
Of the 71 articles, only 8 do not (at first examination) include such processes.
