NewsGuard demonstrates that advertising revenues stemming from major companies funded the online disinformation campaigns that led to the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

NewsGuard has published a report that provides a list of the 10 sources of disinformation and the 10 reliable sources of information that generated the most engagement on social networks in France in 2020.

This report from the Institute for Strategic Dialogue analyzes 29 Facebook groups and pages that have exhibited suspicious, potentially coordinated and inauthentic activity since June 2020.

This report analyzes Facebook content related to QAnon, a pro-Trump conspiracy theory and movement originating in the United States.

The NGO AVAAZ has published a report that criticizes Facebook’s management of its platform during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The European Union has published a report regarding the efforts made by major digital platforms to limit online disinformation related to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), a public institution that reports directly to the Parliament of the United Kingdom, has published its final report on the investigation concerning Cambridge Analytica.

The results of this analysis show that engagement with disinformation sources is greater today that it was during the run-up to the 2016 U.S. elections.

On August 31, 2020, Facebook removed a network of Facebook and Instagram pages and accounts linked to the American strategic communications firm CLS Strategies for having engaged in coordinated “inauthentic” behavior.

Although this Code has been, according to the report, a “valuable instrument” in the fight against disinformation, the document mostly highlights its limitations and shortcomings, “mainly due to the Code’s self-regulatory nature.”
