In France: debate on #fakenews to La commission de la culture du Sénat
On 21 March 2018 there was a debate on fake news (considering the balance between free speech and preserving the integrity of democratic debate), hosted by La commission de la culture & la commission des lois du Sénat, following on from an announcement earlier this year that there would be a parliamentary enquiry and action concerning fake news. The participants were: Catherine Morin-Desailly; Philippe Bas; Divina Frau-Meigs; Bernard Benhamou; Samuel Laurent; Christophe Bigot; Hervé Brusini; Benoît Tabaka. I learnt about this from a press release http://www.senat.fr/presse/cp20180321b.html and haven't been yet able to find a report on it.
