Latest update : 2018-03-21

'You're fake news': Propaganda and disinformation in the digital age

What to make of revelations that a UK-based data mining company accessed tens of millions of Facebook accounts and then targeted citizens to sway the 2016 election in favour of Donald Trump? Was it illegal? Is Facebook complicit? Did it really make a difference? FRANCE 24 has been exchanging with high schools over how to spot fishy news stories. We also ask our panel what it thinks of President Macron's plans to crack down on fake news.

Produced by Charles WENTE, Alessandro XENOS, Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.

By François PICARD
