The beat goes on: State Department publishes specialized page on disinformation

Disarming Disinformation is the name of the new section on the State Department website. It contains the following quotes:

“There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and responsibility, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders – leaders who have pledged to honor our Constitution and protect our nation — to defend the truth and to defeat the lies.”

JOSEPH R. BIDEN, JR.
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

“We see a significant effort to push propaganda against Ukraine, NATO, and the United States. That includes malign social media operations, the use of overt and covert online proxy media outlets, the infection of disinformation into TV and radio programming, hosting conferences designed to influence attendees into falsely believing that Ukraine – not Russia – is at fault for heightened tensions in the region, and the leveraging of cyber operations to deface media outlets and conduct ‘hack and release’ operations – that is, hacking, and then releasing private data and communications.”

ANTONY J. BLINKEN
SECRETARY OF STATE

In addition, it has the two Fact Sheets published yesterday, plus a pair of reports, and an archive of Counter Disinformation Dispatches (currently 13) from the Global Engagement Center from the last 2 years.
