Germany Considers Fining Facebook $522,000 Per Fake News

There's only two people in your life you should lie to... the police and your girlfriend.

 

The Heat Street has reported that Germany is considering imposing a legal regime that would allow fining social networks such as Facebook up to 500,000 euros ($522,000) for each day the platform leaves a “fake news” story up without deleting it.

In the name of combating harms from false news, the German government next year will consider the bill, which has bipartisan support, that will allow both official and private complainants to flag content that is considered “fake news”.
