Concerns over where to draw the line in fighting fake news

Note the valid concerns about how legislations to combat fake news may run the risk of stifling free speech online as well as the voice of the oppostion.

Note also the excellent local examples in the article on fake news under the section entitled: "Cases of Fake News brought up in Parliament", esp NTUC selling halal pork and the Punggol roof collapse. Good international examples of fake news will include Brexit and of course the US Presidential Elections where Donald Trump won due to the circulation of fake news on Hillary Clinton.
