Summary of Disinformation

RT is completely outperforming CNN, and as a result, the latter has demanded the suspension of RT’s Facebook accounts.


RT's accounts were suspended by Facebook for failing to disclose that they were backed by the Russian government.

Facebook later restored the suspended accounts after they disclosed their affiliations with the Russian government.

Furthermore, there is no evidence that RT is outperforming CNN.
