UK 'fake news' inquiry calls for end to tech middleman excuses, election law overhaul


Re: 'Fake news'

"A Labour MP leaked it.

I can't find the article unfortunately, I think it was either in The Times or The Sunday Times."

So...your response to an article about trying to come to terms with fake news is to:

1. Make a wild accusation ("Labour teaches its MPs to lie") and say this means it's pointless to even try

2. When challenged, stand by the accusation but say that you can't actually find any evidence for it anywhere?

I've just got to go call the Acme Irony Meter Service Department, cos you just broke mine.
