Managing Fake News

How do you respond when someone starts spreading false rumors about you or your organization?  Would it be good to have your country’s president’s support?

“Muslim Group Fights Web Spread of Fake News,” The Wall Street Journal, March 13, A13.  Government and a private organization join forces in Indonesia to battle fake news.  Think of Snopes, in Bahasa, sharing because “‘This is our responsibility as a society as a whole because hoaxes, false information, is not healthy for society.”

Could other countries benefit from a government-supported push?
