The recurrent conspiracy narrative consisting in "always blaming George Soros". The Russian TV report misrepresents the opinion of one US resident, collating that with a misused quotation from a Fox News journalist. First, the microphone is supposed to be given to people on the street, which is usually serving to demonstrate the variety of opinions in professional journalism. However, only one recorded opinion about "Soros backing protests", is shown in the edited report. This quote is not supported by any other evidence neither rebuffed. To further support the Soros narrative, the journalist claims "The investigative journalist Lara Logan is also confident that the financier George Soros is behind the protests" and then quotes her :
"These protests are staged, they have their own huge network, and not only in the United States, but around the world, it is a global organisation. And many experts, politicians do not want to talk about them, to call a spade a spade, to say that Antifa is doing it. Why? Because they have a serious patronage". [reverse translation of Russian voice-over into English]
Fox News' journalist Lara Logan was speaking about the important role played by Antifa in the protests (regardless of whether accusations against them are true or not). She is saying "it is a global organisation" meaning Antifa, but she did not pronounce the name of "George Soros" as backing Antifa neither the name of "Open Society Foundation" which is funded by Soros. The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25th of May, 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. See more disinformation cases on George Soros.
