Volume of Fake News Overwhelming Real News, MPs Warn

The Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee chairman said this week that the volume of fake news is increasingly crowding out real news at a time when viewers are still struggling to discern between the two.  

Tory MP Damian Collins revealed that they are calling for tougher regulation for social networks as the issue has already become a threat to democracy.

The UK government is also said to be considering a requirement for election ads to have a digital imprint which will clearly identify the publisher.
