Should people who share fake news get fined? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Germany is considering legislation that would impose stiff fines on social media sites that carry fake news.
Such a measure would be a dramatic departure from attempted crackdowns on fake news in the U.S., where social media sites like Facebook are allowed wide latitude to police themselves.
Under the proposed measure in Germany, sites would have to remove fake news within 24 hours. Subjects targeted by the stories would also have the right to demand a retraction placed in a prominent spot on the site. The proposal would require major platforms like Facebook to staff an office in Germany to be responsive to complaints 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Sites that fail to remove false news could face fines of up to 500,000 euros ($520,000) under the measure.”
