NFL: Super Bowl LVIII-San Francisco 49ers at Kansas City Chiefs

Taylor Swift, shown on the field after Super Bowl LVIII, has been the subject of conspiracy theories that she is a “psyop” asset of the Defense Department.

Lately, it’s become popular in conservative media circles to brand certain things as a psychological operation, or “psyop.”

Climate change, for example. Or covid. Or the media coverage of Donald Trump. Or even the prosecution of Hunter Biden.
