The issue about “fake news” (01-06-17)

Fake news seems to be a hot topic nowadays. But what I recall was probably like 10 years or so ago was to investigate your sources. It pretty much the same as scams and dubious advertisements. This ploy is not just used in news but many things as well. I don’t think we actually really need new rules against these because they are usually already there like defamation. I think if new rules are implemented it will not be just used against fake news but also in censorship against news that are not in line with the policital party views. So I think on th issue on fake news everyone needs to be cautious and check if it is a creditable source check references and check if there are similar news on the same subject as well. If there is no evidence to back it up then it is dismissible.
