Pentagon spokesperson on Syria strikes: “The Russian disinformation campaign has already begun. There has been a 2,000% increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours."
...a few comments on this.
Let me start by saying: Yes, the #disinfo campaign surrounding Syria is very real and very much underway. But it's troubling that a Pentagon spokesperson can't clearly articulate what that means, what it looks like, and what it entails.
For one thing, the disinformation campaign surrounding Syria didn't just begin. It's been going on for a long time, and it has never ceased.
