German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Wednesday against the power of fake news on social media to spur the rise of populists, after launching her campaign for a fourth term.

Speaking in parliament for the first time since her announcement Sunday that she would seek re-election next year, Merkel cautioned that public opinion was being “manipulated” on the internet.

“Something has changed — as globalisation has marched on, (political) debate is taking place in a completely new media environment. Opinions aren’t formed the way they were 25 years ago,” she said.

“Today we have fake sites, bots, trolls — things that regenerate themselves, reinforcing opinions with certain algorithms and we have to learn to deal with them.”

Merkel, 62, said the challenge for democrats was to “reach and inspire people — we must confront this phenomenon and if necessary, regulate it.”

She said she supported initiatives by her right-left coalition government to crack down on “hate speech” on social media in the face of what she said were “concerns about the stability of our familiar order”.

“Populism and political extremes are growing in Western democracies,” she warned.

Last week, Google and Facebook moved to cut off ad revenue to bogus news sites after a US election campaign in which the global misinformation industry may have influenced the outcome of the vote.

But media watchers say more is needed to stamp out a powerful phenomenon seen by some experts as a threat to democracy itself.

Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats are the odds-on favourites to win the German national election, expected in September or October 2017.

But she is facing a strong challenge from a resurgent rightwing populist party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has her liberal refugee and migration policy in its crosshairs.

the meme is strong as we predicted..merkel on the bandwagon now as she battles to survive..i hope she loses..and if she does she will blame “fake news”..not her polices..

“She said she supported initiatives by her right-left coalition government to crack down on “hate speech” on social media in the face of what she said were “concerns about the stability of our familiar order”.

aww..their familiar order might be disrupted..

“Populism and political extremes are growing in Western democracies,” she warned.”

  3. “Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats are the odds-on favourites to win the German national election, expected in September or October 2017.”
    Hillary was slated as being the “odds-on favorite” to win in the states, as well. There were quite a few /pol/ denizens that bet decent amounts of money on Trump winning, at 5 to 1 odds (using Bitcoin, and over the net, of course, as it’s illegal to bet on the presidential election in the U.S.) …they made a bundle.
    As for “fake news,” Merkel hates any news outlet she can’t redact information from, or lean on with police action if they start telling too much of the truth. To this I say, “tough titties.”
    While there may be many false claims across the internet, I’ve noticed the alternative news sources do a pretty good job of checking sources and weeding out falsehoods. It’s up to the news consumer to decide which sources turn out to be the most accurate over time.
    As for the “mainstream” news outlets…they have proven themselves to be biased & dishonest in the extreme, to redact information (lies by omission), and to bury important stories they don’t like where you are unlikely to see them.
    The manipulations they use on a constant basis run the gamut from simple misleading camera angles, to severely editing interviews, to taking statements out of context, and even as far as editing audio & video evidence to push their agendas. If any news sources are lies, it is the mainstream sources.
    Sorry, Merkel…but the same people that own the mainstream press also own YOU, and I don’t trust them any further than I can throw…hell, I don’t trust them at all.
    And I’ve seen what you’ve done to Germany so far…if I were a REAL German, of REAL German ancestry, I would never vote you back in, and I’d definitely vote in favor of hanging you for treason.

  5. This was on CNN earlier this evening when I was at the gym I saw it on the TV there:

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/04/politics/gun-incident-fake-news/index.html

    On CNN there headline across the screen during this particular news story read something like “Fake News Causes Death”.

    Made it sound scary. Nobody actually died either as that headline is misleading in those regards also. Though the man that entered the store with a gun should have been more wise. He was wrong for doing that obviously. Interesting how a Muslim family was in Comet Ping Pong and was interviewed in the story. Makes for great headlines and sympathy in the effort to be persuasive.

    • anything “they” dont like will become fake news..that story is related to pizzagate which is becoming a nexus for fake news diatribes but i bet nobody who writes how its fake news has actually looked into it because of they did they would see what we have seen..

    • excuse the use of the word “faggot” please..

    • I saw the sick pictures, and what is awful is what CNN reported when I was at the gym yesterday (I do not know if that article I linked mentions this). They mentioned that the pictures, images, and paintings are being misinterpreted. That is there defense! haha! Obviously though, and this is sad, depravity will corrupt and darken people into thinking they are not thinking about those paintings rightly.

      • fake news and now ‘fake news causes death’. all these scare tactics. false flag? Even if this man was that far gone in his own mind; it still makes the cause to go after people seem ever the more legitimate.

        People like that man from North Carolina need to heed this warning from God (Romans 12:19) “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”
