DISINFO: Swedish Radio gets in a pickle for rigging protests


Swedish Radio gets in a pickle for rigging protests.


Yet another example of Sputnik using misleading headlines. The Swedish Radio was critizised for someone putting a protest sign inside their open van during the coverage of a protest, but even in the Sputnik-article, they are not accused of rigging any protests - apart from the headline. bit.ly/2tIxxlK,

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.
