‘Fake News’: The War Has Erupted

Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t want to have to beg for forgiveness again. If in 2016 he dismissed the idea that the spread of false news could be a factor in Donald Trump’s victory as “crazy,” for the November midterm elections the CEO has armed himself to the teeth. The social network announced yesterday that it had successfully used its recently created internet content control center for combating fake news, or “war room,” for the first time, in the first round of the Brazilian presidential elections. One more step against disinformation; a battle won in the war against those two words that President Trump repeats to the point of absurdity and behind which he defends himself from any accusation. Those words that favor his victory and which are now coming under attack from the alliance of the social networks and the free press: “fake news.”
