The Guardian: Facebook and Twitter threatened with sanctions in UK ‘fake news’ inquiry

The Guardian: Facebook and Twitter threatened with sanctions in UK ‘fake news’ inquiry. “Facebook and Twitter could face sanctions if they continue to stonewall parliament over Russian interference in the EU referendum, the chair of a Commons inquiry has said. Damian Collins, chair of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport select committee, which is looking into so-called ‘fake news’, has given the companies until 18 January to correct their failure to hand over information he requested about Russian misinformation campaigns on their platforms.”
