Mariya Gabriel Joins the Fight Against Fake News

"It is our responsibility to help the" fourth power "- journalism is the backbone of democracy," said Bulgarian commissioner for digital economy and society Mariya Gabriel in an interview with the Belgian economic daily L'Eco quoted by the Sofia office of the European Commission.
"The approach to fake news in social networks has to turn from national to European," she said, adding that she would propose a common strategy in the spring of 2018 to address this phenomenon.
A high-level expert group should identify good practices to combat fake news. These already exist, such as "trusted flaggers" to voluntarily false flag YouTube content or so-called "trusted flaggers", "fact checkers" to check the facts. "It is up to us to judge what added value the EU can bring," said Commissioner Gabriel.
