Fake news and propaganda driven by governments and corporations is, of course, nothing new. Brexit and the American election have brought the subject into sharp focus...as the political class have been unexpectedly losing important desired outcomes.

Last paragraph:

The political elite want to crack down on what they view is fake news — which essentially amounts to pretty much anything that they disagree with or what doesn’t fit with their own world view and the outcomes desired. Gatekeepers in the form of fact-checkers will be deciding what’s false and what’s true, with little or no vetting. Long, hard, fought-for civil liberties and rights, along with free expression will be handed to organisations, approved by government who are convinced we shouldn’t have those rights in the first place.
