In Germany, these problems have been under-estimated, under-reported, and outright downplayed for a very long time:

If you are worried about the effect of disinformation on democracy, the UK is a very scary place right now: Google bans eight different Tory election adverts as disinformation concerns mount (I think the number has risen in the meantime).

Cas Mudde thinks that nativism and authoritarianism are more problematic than mere populism. I couldn’t agree more.

If you feel CONSTANTLY OVERWHELMED BY THE FLOOD OF NEW BOOKS THAT YOU SHOULD READ OR AT LEAST KNOW ABOUT, the New Books in Political Science podcast delivers wonderful, commute-sized reviews / interviews with the authors right to your earphones.
