The One America News Network (OANN), a vociferously far-right, pro-Trump media outlet, may not have anywhere near the same audience as outlets like Fox News or CNN. But it has at least one fan: Russia.

After OANN ran a report earlier this week defending the Syrian government against claims that it had used chemical weapons on its citizens — a stance shared by both Russian and Iranian authorities — the Twitter feed for the Russian embassy in South Africa, one of Moscow's most prominent Twitter accounts, promoted OANN's findings.

The Russian feed praised the work of OANN's Pearson Sharp, claiming that OANN's report shows that "there is still real journalism in the US."
