The European Commission recently created a 39-member panel to explore avenues to eliminate fake news. On Twitter, it announced that it seeks to find a “balanced approach” to protecting free speech and making sure citizens get “reliable information.”
Nothing says free and open exchange of ideas like a 39-member
international panel. High-Level Expert Group.
I keep seeing Ace and others identify far left behavior by saying “…this is how you got Trump.” I really don’t want to see what kind of twisted European reaction will come from the High-Level Expert Group.
The article mentions the social media crackdowns on hate in Germany and the UK. Go ahead. Le the EU decide what is true. Prevent people from expressing their frustration on Facebook, Twitter and the like.
This is a recipe for failure.
