Emmanuel Macron: French president announces 'fake news' law
8 hours ago

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced plans for a new law to combat so-called fake news.

He said that during elections social media would face tougher rules over the content that they put online.

Deliberate attempts were being made to blur lines between truth and lies and undermine people's faith in liberal democracy, he added.

Correspondents say there is no question that Mr Macron had Russia in mind when he made the announcement.

He has already spoken out publicly about what he sees as Moscow's attempts to manipulate opinion in Europe and the United States.

'Protect democracy'
Speaking at a new year reception for the media, Mr Macron said it was possible now at a cost of just a few thousand euros to propagate untruths over social media.

"Thousands of propaganda accounts on social networks are spreading all over the world, in all languages, lies invented to tarnish political officials, personalities, public figures, journalists," he said.

In response, he proposed imposing tougher rules on social media about revealing the sources of apparent news content.

He also said limits would be put on how much could be spent on sponsored news material.

"We will develop our legal system to protect democracy from this fake news," he said, quoted by AFP.

France's audiovisual regulator would be given extra powers to "fight any destabilisation attempt by television channels controlled or influenced by foreign states", he added.

Mr Macron denounced Russia media outlets RT and Sputnik at a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin last May, accusing them of spreading "deceitful propaganda".

Since then RT has launched a French-language TV channel.

The only thing I think can be done without turning into censorship and, because of what he said, I think they are thinking about, is to make a clear distinction between personal opinions and paid space, as it appears that paid posts were the (supposed) problem.

i agree with you Armap
but i was wondering how strongly they planned on inforceing their law..
will they do background checks on single names to make sure that they are opinions and not planted comments. ?

The French were suckers and fools to trust Macron.  It's just another, 'vote for any one you want, get the same result'. 

Note the usual propaganda about Russian news. Meanwhile, the US violates international law, builds bases in Syria, helps terrorists, wrecks Libya and then claims to have defeated ISIS after Russia actually finished them.  Maybe Macron is some Vichy official who got reincarnated.
