Berlin In Lockstep With US -- Planning "Center Of Defense Against Disinformation"...

• http://www.activistpost.com, By Claire Bernish

In response to putative chaos in the U.S. election putatively caused by "fake news" and Russian hackers — for which no evidence has yet surfaced — Germany plans to create a center of defense against disinformation in advance of its elections next year.

Der Spiegel reports that the Federal Press Office in the Chancellery will take a sizable role in creating this fake news defense center, which will roll out a dystopian "intensification of political education work," specifically targeting those the German government feels might be impressionable to 'fake news' — particularly "Russian-Germans" and "Turkish-speaking people."

Fears that "false" reports could sway elections in Germany led officials to surmise arrangements for the center "should be negotiated very quickly," and rules for the 2017 election should be decided among the various political parties.
