Yesterday, we reported President Obama’s remarks to a German audience that “fake news” was a threat to democracy. The President bemoaned the lack of a “filter” that allowed what he deems to be “fake news” to reach internet uses and potential mislead them.
Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson is suspicious of Mr. Obama’s intentions regarding his presumption that any such curator (Google or Facebook) would be objective and tweeted:
I doubt it's coincidence that there's increasing talk of govt & online forces inserting themselves as "curators" of real news/"fake news"
