France's "Fake News" Law Will Be Used To Silence Critics, Win Elections

•, by Intellihub

The people at the top of the pyramid who are actually running the entire show appear to have it all figured out: in a world where down is up and up is down fake news appears almost everywhere but the real fact of the matter is that most of it comes from mainstream sources, like CNN. So I have to ask: Will the new laws be used to crackdown on sources like CNN that publish garbage or will the powers-that-be let agencies like CNN roll with whatever smut they like while other smaller outlets get targeted over "fake news"? Will the powers-that-be use the law as a weapon to remove controversial reports?

French AFP reports:

France is the latest country attempting to fight the scourge of fake news with legislation — but opponents say the law won't work and could even be used to silence critics.
