 Joe Schoffstall for the Washington Free Beacon reports, The German government is considering making Facebook pay hefty fines for “fake news” posts due to worries they could impact the country’s elections. The possible fines come from lawmakers in the country who are worried Russia may try to interfere with elections in 2017. Politicians are mulling legislation that would compel the social media giant to create a “legal protection unit” and pay individuals affected by “fake news” stories that are not swiftly dealt with, Forbes reported.
