EU Today Publisher Gary Cartwright responds to allegations by Le Soir & EU Disinformation Lab


In this morning’s Le Soir ( a French language Belgian newspaper), my photograph was published alongside a “story” entitled “Story Killers: comment l’Inde crée des fake news depuis Bruxelles” (Story Killers: How India creates fake news from Brussels).

The article implies that I, and my London-based publication EU Today, are a part of a network of industrial scale misinformation dissemination.

This appears to be based on the fact that the Belgian-based EU Disinformation Lab have reported that a single article published on EU Today was re-distributed by ANI, an Indian news agency.

The article, which I personally sub-edited, is absolutely sound, and covers an issue of great concern to the European Parliament (and even greater concern to the government of Pakistan).

In any event, I never disclose sources.

I note from the EU Disinformation website, that ANI, Reuters, Yahoo News, Hindustan Times, India TV, The Print, and Business Standard also rather sensibly declined to respond.
