Pour ceux que ça intéresse, je dis quelques mots en anglais sur la loi contre les fausses informations dans cet article de US News.
« Many people are afraid the definition (of the proposed law) would be too broad or that it could set up precedents that allow the government to reduce freedom of speech, » says Tristan Mendès France, a French journalist and professor of new media at Sorbonne University.
« This ban is fighting against an information ecosystem far beyond (a government’s) own capacities, » Mendès France says. Private organizations, he says, can more effectively counter fake news, pointing to groups such as Reporters Sans Frontières, a Le Monde team dedicated to debunking fake news, and the Sleeping Giants initiative, which, Mendès France says, has « managed to suck millions of dollars from fake news organizations. »
Still, even imperfect legislation has benefits, Mendès France says. « The positive thing is it sends a message to the general public that the government is taking this seriously. »
