Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared her thoughts Thursday on what separated propaganda from education and how to combat false narratives.

Clinton made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where she raised concerns about TikTok and told host Joe Scarborough that propaganda was “the opposite” of education.


“Propaganda is not education. Propaganda, whether it’s TikTok or in the classroom, is actually the opposite of education,” Clinton said. “Anybody who is teaching in a university or anyone who is putting content on social media should be held responsible for what they include and what they exclude.”

Clinton, whose campaign team was eventually fined for funding the Steele Dossier — which spurred the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and spawned an investigation into her 2016 political opponent — went on to complain that people were not doing enough to combat propaganda on social media.


The former Secretary of State — whose State Department also helped to promulgate the narrative that the siege of the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi was driven by a YouTube video — noted that many used social media to promote specific agendas and said that more should be done to make sure that especially younger users were more aware of that.

“So we have to do a much better job in trying to number one, teach history at all levels,” she said. “But it’s also important that we recognize the propaganda value of social media. People are on social media oftentimes to press an agenda, an ideological, a religious, a financial, a political, a partisan agenda, and so of course you don’t get the facts. Of course, you don’t get any kind of context.”

“We have to do a better job ourselves, and we certainly have to do a better job with young people in trying to help them understand how to filter and interpret the information they’re giving.”
