In a number of media appearances and interviews, Annenberg Public Policy Center Director Kathleen Hall Jamieson has discussed the roles that Russian hackers and trolls played in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as detailed in her new book, “Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President,” published in October by Oxford University Press.
On December 30, CNN’s Brian Stelter spoke with Jamieson on Reliable Sources.
Jamieson appeared on “Morning Joe” on December 18, 2018, to discuss the release of reports from the Senate Intelligence Committee on Russian disinformation using social media.
PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff spoke with Jamieson on November 1, 2018, to discuss the research presented in “Cyberwar,” including Jamieson’s conclusion that it is “highly probable” that Russian interference helped to swing the 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump.

Jamieson appeared on the BBC News show “Beyond 100 Days,” speaking with Katty Kay and Christian Fraser on October 31. Watch a clip from the program below.
On October 28, CNN’s Reliable Sources featured Jamieson, who discussed the tone of politics following a week in which an armed gunman killed worshipers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh and a Florida man was arrested on charges he sent pipe bombs to a dozen of the president’s political opponents. Jamieson said: “Let’s stop calling other people evil, and let’s stop assuming that people are trying to destroy us when in fact they are not.” Watch the clip:
