Macron takes on ‘fake news’ with plans to change France’s media laws

Macron takes on ‘fake news’ with plans to change France’s media laws:

Macron made the announcement during a new year’s speech for the press.

He said he felt the need to act as deliberate attempts were being made to blur the lines between truth and lies.

“If we want to protect our liberal democracies, we must have strong legislation. That’s why I have decided that we will change our legal measures in order to protect democratic life from this fake news.”
