Petition to verify the source of information before online publishing sign now

The Goal: To curb the spread of fake news by ensuring that all published news has authorized sources and references.

 

The problem: The deliberate spread of misinformation on media platforms has become fairly commonplace and presents grave challenges to our country. Propaganda campaigns from within and outside the country threaten the fabric of our political system and indeed our society. The prevalence of “fake news” has increased political polarization, decreased trust in public institutions, and undermined democracy.

The accessibility of information over the internet has turned online platforms into propaganda tools. Also, vested economic interests have led to a barrage of clickbait articles and other forms of yellow journalism. So, instead of providing the public with unbiased and authentic information, the focus of numerous publications is to generate revenues or to forward a specific narrative.

 

The solution: The only way to ensure access to reliable and authentic information is to ensure that online publications have more stringent verification protocols in place. First and foremost, media platforms should provide reliable links to the sources of information they put out on their website. Information that can be linked to its primary source prevents the dissemination of misinformation or disinformation. While a lot of news publications like Peresdaily.com abide by this convention, there are many others that don't.

We demand that all news publications take the responsibility to educate the masses with authentic information and stop 'fake news' from undermining the credibility of free media.
