    PARIS — Can a democratic country outlaw fake news?

    France is about to find out after President Emmanuel Macron ordered a law to quash false information disseminated around electoral campaigns.

    Criticism is pouring in from media advocates, tech experts — and Kremlin-backed broadcaster RT. They say the law smacks of authoritarianism, would be impossible to enforce and is sure to backfire."

    Fake Rothschild's news helped Macron to win his presidency. Now he calls all the other news "fake". Anybody surprised?
