Le Monde newspaper launches anti-fake news platform

Le Monde newspaper launches anti-fake news platform
 
Le Monde launched its new Decodex platform on 1st February 2017. Le Monde

How can the media fight the rise of fake news? French newspaper Le Monde might have part of the answer.

At the beginning of February Le Monde will launch Decodex, a web platform that will allow readers to check wether a website is reliable or not.

The team has also created a Chrome and Firefox extension that will alert readers when they come across false or unverified stories, powered by a database of 600 websites that are considered unreliable.

RFI spoke to Samuel Laurent, the head of Les Décodeurs, the fact-checking section of Le Monde.

Plus, we'll go to the US, where activists say the government is censoring scientists.
