Who’s spreading the news?

“Egypt Send Actress to Jail for ‘Fake News,'” The Wall Street Journal, October 1, 2018 A9. Woman posting video on Facebook claiming sexual harassment posted on Facebook sentenced to two years in jail.

Publishing fake news with intent of toppling regime.  Egypt has some problems with sexual harassment.  Appeal expected.

Notice that the government prosecuted the woman, and not Facebook.
