PragerU’s Influence

Francesca Tripodi

In the report “Searching for Alternative Facts” Data & Society Postdoctoral Scholar Francesca Tripodi delves into the effect of PragerU’s videos.

“Tripodi spent extensive time with a conservative women’s group and a college Republican group for her study. ‘My goal was to push back on this idea that conservatives are cultural doofs that don’t read; as a scholar I don’t buy that. There are people approaching content in a meaningful way. It was through these groups that I started learning about PragerU and how much it is a beloved source of news and information amongst most people I spoke with,’ she tells Hatewatch.”
