POLITICO Starts Database for Collecting and Debunking Fake News

POLITICO started an initiative to combat fake news. It notes that fake news is actually “disinformation—false content created explicitly to deceive or misinform” and says, “The month leading up to the midterm elections will likely see a proliferation of false information spread under the guise of news in an effort to sway voters.” POLITICO is working on identifying and tracing this information’s origins and debunking it. People can view the progress via a publicly accessible database. POLITICO is asking that people submit reports, websites, and social media posts that they believe to be disseminating disinformation.
