Katy Tur

There is a giant debate about what is fake news and what is real news and what can we trust. It's super scary right now that we are in a time where people don't trust what is in front of their eyes and that they only trust what they want to be in front of their eyes.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

We feel compelled to go out and clear the air and put alternative facts out there.feedback

Bonnie Sumner

His position, as it is with too many other things, is, I know what's best, I know better than everybody else, and this is a hoax, and this is fake news. I'm frightened for us, my children and my grandchildren. We only have one earth, we have to work together.feedback

Margaret Atwood

We are in an age of yet more autocratic regimes, thought police, double-speak and fake news … When you have total control of the news system, you can really have fake news.feedback

Daniel Coronell - Univision Communications

Every single investigation in Colombia or Guatemala or Mexico, is followed by 'This journalist has his own agenda; he's trying to affect my government' and 'That's fake news'. Many of us, we know the movie – we've seen it in Spanish. It's crucial for us that people know their rights and the possibilities. And we are working all the time to use the investigative journalism tools in order to provide better information to our community.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt. After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians,' nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad! The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people! I can go around them.feedback

Diane Abbott

Clearly I was part of Lynton Crosby's grid. We did contemplate taking legal action. It was literally fake news.feedback

Yanis Varoufakis

I am not saying Russia is not important, but Trump's base is very well defended against that: 'the liberal media is out to get him', it's fake news', and all the rest.feedback

Douglas Holt

People collectively impute what Facebook stands for by what Facebook does. In this case, they make inferences based upon the clear value Facebook brings to their lives juxtaposed with the big problems that it seems to cause (privacy, filter, fake news, fatigue etc) and also the aggressive commercialism of the feed.feedback

John McCain

She was clearly involved in this whole situation where fake news, as you just described it, big deal,' took place. You're going to have to help me out here. In other words, we're complete – the investigation of anything that former Secretary Clinton had to do with a campaign is over and we don't have to worry about it anymore? The whole thing is unsettling. That's why we're in a full-fledged scandal, as I told you weeks ago. That's why we need a select committee. It will happen sooner or later because there will be more shoes to drop.feedback

Donald J. Trump

You can talk all you want about Russia, which was all a fake news, fabricated deal to try and make up for the loss of the Democrats, and the press plays right into it.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Now, all along Donald Trump has said the entire Russia story is fake news. And there is no way to know whether this document that was released is real, other than the fact that the leaker was immediately arrested. Fake news, real prison.feedback

Donald J. Trump

During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar - look! Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH.feedback

Vittorio Colao - Vodafone Group

Hate speech and fake news threaten to undermine the principles of respect and trust that bind communities together. Vodafone has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion; we also greatly value the integrity of the democratic processes and institutions that are often the targets of purveyors of fake news. We will not tolerate our brand being associated with this kind of abusive and damaging content.feedback

Matt Peacock - Vodafone Group

It is relatively easy to blacklist certain sites, such as those relating to porn and gambling, but it is difficult to exclude content that is – in editorial terms – at odds with an advertiser's own principles and beliefs. When it comes to making a judgment about a site or channel focused on fake news or hate speech, what's needed is a human judgment, an editorial assessment. It's not possible to rely on algorithms alone. For that reason, we've concluded that the best way to ensure brand safety is to use a whitelist approach.feedback

Mark W. Warner

Listen, there's a lot of smoke. We have no smoking gun at this point. But there is a lot of smoke. This is one of the questions we have to sort through. It does seem strange, it appears, that Russian-paid internet trolls who created bots were then able to put forward fake news, selective stories in a way that seemed targeted. We don't have fool proof of that. So I'm not where Secretary Clinton is in terms of jumping to a conclusion. But this is one of the many questions that we need to investigate.feedback

Martin Lorentzon - Spotify

I am not saying it is fake news, but half of what the media writes is usually correct and half is usually not.feedback

Wilbur Ross

Trump is betraying the country, in the service of Breitbart fake news, the shameless fossil fuel industry, and the Koch brothers' climate denial operation. It's sad.feedback

Sheldon Whitehouse

Ignoring reality and leaving the Paris Agreement could go down as one of the worst foreign policy blunders in our nation's history, isolating the U.S. further after Trump's shockingly bad European trip. Trump is betraying the country, in the service of Breitbart fake news, the shameless fossil fuel industry, and the Koch brothers' climate denial operation. It's sad.feedback

John Kerry

He gave America a huge fake news moment in which he pretended that certain things are happening that aren't.feedback

Hillary Clinton

They've got to get back to trying to curate it more effectively, they've got to help prevent fake news from creating a new reality.feedback

Nigel Farage

In response to the Guardian article, it has taken me a long time to finish reading because I am laughing so much. This is fake news. This hysterical attempt to associate me with the (Russian President Vladimir) Putin regime is a result of the liberal elite being unable to accept Brexit and the election of President Trump.feedback

Hillary Clinton

The Russians in my opinion - and based on intelligence and counterintelligence people I have spoken to - could not have known best how to weaponize that information unless they had been guided by a specific group of people. By Americans. Low information voters' were persuaded by reading fake news on Facebook and said: 'Some people were sucked in. Some people stayed home. Some people voted Trump.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

That's not how it works. The Americans can't just leave the Climate Protection Agreement. Mr Trump believes that because he doesn't get close enough to the dossiers to fully understand them. This notion: 'I am Trump, I am American, America first and I'm going to get out of it it,' that won't happen...the law is the law and it must be obeyed. Not everything which is law and not everything in international agreements is fake news and we have to comply with it.feedback

Devin Nunes

The big story is the 'unmasking and surveillance' of people that took place during the Obama Administration. Seeing a lot of fake news from media elites and others who have no interest in violations of Americans' civil liberties via unmaskings.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

So this notion 'I am Trump, I am American, America First and I'm going to get out of it' – that won't happen. We tried to explain that to Mr. Trump in Taormina in clear German sentences. It seems our attempt failed, but the law is the law and it must be obeyed. Not everything which is law and not everything in international agreements is fake news, and we have to comply with it.feedback

Sean Spicer

Your question pre-supposes facts that are not confirmed. He wants to see action done, John, that's what the president wants. Honestly, I haven't asked him. Again, I would refer you to the comments that Secretary Kelly and Gen. McMaster have said about how they can be important tool in diplomacy. [The president] is frustrated like I am and so many others to see stories come out that are patently false, to see narratives that are wrong and see, quote⁄unquote fake news. There are mistakes like that and I was asked to give an example and I did it.feedback

Adam Schiff

The Fake News Media works hard at disparaging & demeaning my use of social media, because they don't want America to hear the real story!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News. Russia must be laughing up their sleeves watching as the U.S. tears itself apart over a Democrat EXCUSE for losing the election.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change. Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

When I say things once, I don't usually repeat myself. During the campaign, Russia Today and Sputnik were agents of influence which on several occasions spread fake news about me personally and my campaign. They behaved like organs of influence, of propaganda and of lying propaganda. Our absolute priority is the fight against terrorism and the eradication of terrorist groups and Daesh in particular.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media. Jared is doing a great job for the country. I have total confidence in him. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programmes that will save our country billions of dollars. In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person. Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names, it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fakenews writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Just returned from Europe. Trip was a great success for America. Hard work but big results. It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media. Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names… it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy! Does anyone notice how the Montana Congressional race was such a big deal to Dems & Fake News until the Republican won? V was poorly covered.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason. Just log on to social media for 10 seconds, it will hit you right in the face. Some are even denying things we see with our own eyes – like the size of crowds. And then defending themselves by talking about 'alternative facts'. When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society. That is not hyperbole. It is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done. They attempt to control reality.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You may have heard that things didn't exactly go the way I planned. But you know what? I'm doing OK. Long walks in the woods. Organizing my closets, right? Drumming up rampant fear about undocumented immigrants, muslims, minorities, the poor, turning neighbor against neighbor and sowing division at a time when we desperately need unity. And then defending themselves by talking about 'alternative facts.feedback

Joel Simon

But what's certainly unprecedented in modern American history is the rhetoric: the way that Trump talks about the media, the constant verbal attacks and the framing of journalists as enemies and purveyors of fake news. This incident in Montana – I mean, just based on what we know at this point – I can't recall anything quite like that.feedback

Michael Simpson

I can remember the start of it was a lot similar to what's going on now – 'oh, fake news. Bad reports. That didn't happen', you know, etc, etc etc. But, oh yeah, this did. The next day something else happens and pretty soon you've got an avalanche of stuff.feedback

Pippo Russo

The Italian press was running behind any hypothesis and totally lost the capacity to analyse the situation. That explains why at this moment when it should be necessary to scrutinise the profile of Li Yonghong there is nobody doing it. I can't understand it. Milan is a massive part of the narrative of Italian football and also a symbol of national pride. Everyone has just been focused on the positive aspects – Milan has a new owner and could be about to return to the glory days. But this is, in my opinion, a distortion. Or, as Donald Trump says, alternative facts.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

We know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show. I won't do it, cuz I don't believe in fake news or information that is not true. And that is – every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off or incorrect.feedback

Ali Vaez

Seldom before have the candidates employed social media to reveal documents aimed at sabotaging their rival's campaign. Negative ads and alternative facts are spreading like wildfire on social media in this election.feedback

Raquel Krahenbuhl

The firing and the aftermath deepen the credibility crisis within the White House. The White House's struggle to explain such a consequential firing is something that is important to translate to our audience. Trump's legion of fans in Brazil are blaming the media–especially for focusing on the Trump/Russia investigation, which they think is fake news.feedback

Joe Kiani

I guess, in this day of fake news, we should've expected something like that. But unlike the normal fake news, this had even a greater impact because you have these robo-news agencies trying to use artificial intelligence to give information, but unfortunately, when they get it wrong, you have robo-computers selling or buying based on that news. So I think this had a terrible, vicious cycle.feedback

Ross Levinsohn

I go to Facebook, and I'm seeing more and more fake news, it's really heavy, heavy politics. I think Evan and team are creating the most unique creative platform that's been created on the internet in a very long time.feedback

Gianni Infantino

Sadly, the truth is not what is necessarily true but what people believe is true. There is a lot of fake news and alternative facts about FIFA circulating. FIFA bashing has become a national sport in some countries. We are rebuilding the credibility of FIFA. The new FIFA is a democracy. It is not a dictatorship. New FIFA, it is a transparent organization, not an organization that is fiddling around with facts and figures. It is a deeply honest organization.feedback

Gianni Infantino

Sadly the truth is not exactly what is true, it is what people believe to be true. There is a lot of fake news and alternative facts about FIFA circulating. FIFA bashing has become a national sport, especially in some countries. But FIFA has changed now, we are a new FIFA here and we have new people. We act with facts and not with words. Let me ask you, what did they do? They simply rubber-stamped a sick and corrupt system. Where were all these self-proclaimed gurus and experts. I will, we will, not accept good governance lessons from any individuals who miserably failed to protect football.feedback

Niklas Myhr

It's a way to show the critics they are sincere and trying to take measures to distance themselves from the perception Facebook is basically a channel that can be misused very easily. As long as people are likely to click on headlines that are shocking and curiosity invoking, it favors much of the fake news stories.feedback

Janis Sarts

Misinformation is increasingly used to achieve political ends. Technology helps to amplify that message through fake news sites and social media.feedback

Mark Hurd - Oracle

I think that's fake news. I've seen a couple of reports over the past two weeks, including that we were going to make a big acquisition. There is no merit to that whatsoever. I saw a report that we were cutting our sales force, there is not merit to that whatsoever. We're a big hirer in the United States. We hire a lot of kids fresh out of college.feedback

Ryan Britt

Fake news in 'Star Wars' is probably their number one problem. There's a lack of deep reading and understanding and comprehension. The transference of cultural memory is really, really short.feedback

Tommaso Venturini

There has been an effort to spread fake news, but not to the same extent as we what saw in the U.S. campaign. So far, it's hard to see any evidence of the impact of fake news on the potential outcome.feedback

Kyle Pope

It's telling here that this is in a political ad by the political campaign because it's increasingly clear that this 'fake news' mantra is a political maneuver more than anything.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Trump has repeatedly said that this 100 days is totally arbitrary, okay. Totally unimportant. And to prove how unimportant it is, he took out a TV ad, he cut a cake on Air Force One, and he held a rally in Pennsylvania. The theme of that rally, Promises Made, Promises Kept.' Which is better than the original slogan, Promises made, never mind, never said it, fake news, watch Fox & Friends.' . It's true. He doesn't stand by anything except the dressing room door at Miss USA Pageant. … Who needs a lotion?feedback

George Arzt

This city is the bluest of the blue. That's why he is holding rallies in other places. He's trying to build an image where all reports of his unpopularity are fake news and it's hard to do that when there are thousands of people in the streets yelling epithets at him.feedback

Kelvin MacKenzie

I think the fake news headline that would give this country the most joy would be 'Jeremy Corbyn Knifed to Death by an Asylum Seeker.feedback

Michael Glassner

It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with the country. CNN "takes issue with the ad's message calling out the mainstream media for peddling fake news and not reporting on the fact that President Trump is making America great again.feedback

Bill Ackman

There was all this news agitated by a short seller. Fake news.feedback

Michael Glassner

This is censorship pure and simple. By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an opposing point of view. President Trump's loyal supporters know the truth: The mainstream media mislead, misguide, deceive, and distract. CNN epitomizes the meaning of fake news and has proven it by rejecting our paid campaign ad.feedback

Jimmy Wales

The real impetus for this was fake news. We want people to get behind topics, and then we'll hire staff to cover them.feedback

Gerry McCann

I think in this era of 'fake news' it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before they write and the effects it has. I'm sure it is a very small minority of people who spend their time doing it, but it has totally inhibited what we do. Personally, we don't use social media, although we have used it in Madeleine's campaign. But for our twins who are growing up in an era where mobile technology is used all the time, we don't want them not to be able to use it in the same way that their peers do.feedback

Jeff Mason

The press is still in the White House Briefing Room, and we are still on Air Force One. Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the rhetoric from the president about who we are and what we do. Freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy. Seeking to undermine that is dangerous to a healthy republic. We are not 'fake news, failing news organizations' and 'the enemy of the American people.feedback

Gerry McCann

I don't want to dwell on the negative aspects too long, but I think in this era of 'fake news' it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before what they write and the effects it has.feedback

Richard Blumenthal

The failing @nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying 'Mr. Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov. 14.' We spoke at length yesterday!feedback

Suzanne Moore

Companies such as Apple and Facebook are helping female employees put off motherhood in the name of empowerment. But these women are being dealt a dodgy hand. Although you may want one, you do not need a relationship with a man to have a baby. You need money and time. You can buy sperm; sometimes it even comes for free. These are the new facts of life. Or, rather, the alternative facts that we are sold in the name of that moronic catch-all “empowerment”. You can empower yourself as a woman by pretending that you can make any choice you like regarding fertility, when you like. Just like men do. But to think such female autonomy is now the reality is fundamentally disempowering, because it is not true.feedback

Dan Collins

The risk is what happened in America. The top 20 fake news stories in the last three months of the election were shared more than the top 20 most shared stories that were true. The danger is, if for many people the main source of news is Facebook and if the news they get on Facebook is mostly fake news, they could be voting based on lies.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You're saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving – Sean Spicer, our press secretary – gave alternative facts.feedback

Chuck Todd

Alternative facts are not facts, they're falsehoods.feedback

Jimmy Wales

This will be the first time that professional journalists and citizen journalists will work side-by-side as equals writing stories as they happen, editing them live as they develop, and at all times backed by a community checking and rechecking all facts. Someone I know convinced me to give Mr Trump 100 days before making my mind up, but then on day one Kellyanne Conway came out and said her 'alternative facts' line. That was when I really decided to move forward.feedback

Jimmy Wales

If you take a look at Wikipedia, it's noisy and not a perfect place, but for true fake news, there's been almost no impact on the Wikipedia community. The volunteers are experienced enough to know it's nonsense, and have an ethos saying: 'No, we're here for neutral facts': that community knows it from the ground up. If you take as an example the bitcoin community, they're a very active and obsessed community. There's a lot of news that comes out in the field, and I think they'd love to be able to raise money to hire a journalist and put them on the bitcoin/blockchain beat.feedback

Scott Baio

I'm sorry if that's cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself. This was before the cause of death was announced stating stage 4 cancer. Now it seems every news outlet & tabloid wants to paint a different picture of me and of what really happened. They're stating that I'm saying drugs caused her to die after it was reported stage 4 cancer. This is so wrong! Now I truly understand the meaning of 'Fake News'. This is crazy.feedback

Ben Gomes - Google

Search can always be improved. Today, in a world where tens of thousands of pages are coming online every minute of every day, there are new ways that people try to game the system. The most high profile of these issues is the phenomenon of 'fake news', where content on the web has contributed to the spread of blatantly misleading, low-quality, offensive or downright false information. While this problem is different from issues in the past, our goal remains the same – to provide people with access to relevant information from the most reliable sources available.feedback

Larry Chiagouris

Fake news is careening out of control in some people's eyes, so advertisers are getting very skittish about it. Anything Google can do to show it is trying to put a lid on it and prevent it from getting out of hand, it will be seen as a good thing.feedback

Danny Sullivan - Search Engine Land

The response is definitely happening because of all the attention that's come up in recent months over fake news and problematic search results, answers and search suggestions. Some of the changes are already visible in terms of better results. It's a long way from perfect, nor do I expect the results will ever be perfect for every search. That's impossible. But I do hope we see continued improvement in the weeks and months to come.feedback

Nathaniel Persily

During the 2016 campaign, the prevalence of bots in spreading propaganda and fake news appears to have reached new heights. One study found that between 16 September and 21 October 2016, bots produced about a fifth of all tweets related to the upcoming election. Across all three presidential debates, pro-Trump twitter bots generated about four times as many tweets as pro-Clinton bots. During the final debate in particular, that figure rose to seven times as many.feedback

Cristian Samper - Wildlife Conservation Society

Science is behind the good news and bad news about wildlife conservation . It has nothing to do with the fake news. Science is the antithesis of fake news.feedback

Izzy Jones

I'm marching against the concept of alternative facts because that's something that terrifies me and I want to make my voice heard.feedback

Seth Stein

This is nothing new. This grandstanding shows how out of touch the Trump administration is with reality. Contrary to their alternative facts, New York is the safest big city in the country, with crime at record lows in large part because we have policies in place to encourage cooperation between NYPD and immigrant communities.feedback

Steve Holtzman

If you take certain positions – denying climate change would be an example; questioning the validity of a wealth of evidence that vaccinations don't cause autism; speaking in terms of alternative facts as if facts are things which are merely opinions.feedback

James Alefantis

When fake news collided with reality at my pizza shop, we rallied.feedback

Ann Coulter

FAKE NEWS! @sfchronicle reports vague forces behind UC-Berkeley canceling my speech. (Which will go on.).feedback

Isabelle Bouchard - Dairy Farmers of Canada

To use a phrase that has recently come out of the U.S., Wisconsin farmers are using 'alternative facts'. The Wisconsin people are trying to find an enemy – when in reality, the problem they have is that they're overproducing.feedback

Eric Esrailian

The Associated Press was extremely active during the period of genocide and much of what Americans knew of what was happening was due to the reporting of brave Associated Press journalists. You hear about all this stuff about fake news and people maligning journalists. Then you go back to this era where what we knew about World War I was because of journalists.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

There's a profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason why someone could have voted the way that they did is because they saw some fake news.feedback

Chris Keates

It is worrying that over a third of teachers had experienced pupils citing fake news or inaccurate information they had found online as fact in their work or during classroom discussions. This demonstrates the great power that companies such as Facebook and Google now have in shaping public opinion, particularly among young people who have never known a world without internet and who are less equipped to analyse the information they see presented to them online and assess its plausibility.feedback

Andreas Schleicher - OECD

In the past, when you needed information, you went to an encyclopaedia, you looked it up, and you could trust that information to be true. Distinguishing what is true from what is not true is a critical skill today. Exposing fake news, even being aware that there is something like fake news, that there is something that is written that is not necessarily true, that you have to question, think critically, that is very important. This is something that we believe schools can do something about.feedback

Steven Goldstein

Someone who is [as] despicable as Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once. #Antisemitism. #NeverAgain.feedback

Guido Beltramini

The British decided to invent an official portrait. Today we would call it fake news. If he had included a portrait, then it would have been a book by Palladio, but somehow, by not putting in his portrait, it becomes a book that belongs to all of us.feedback

Francine Prose

The uncomfortable fact is that this short-lived fixation will move the conversation away from the administration’s chaotic (or nonexistent) foreign policy. On Monday, at a White House press briefing, Sean Spicer surprised an audience of reporters who must by now have grown accustomed, even hardened, to the press secretary’s gaffes, mistakes and dogged defenses of alternative facts. Extemporizing on Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against a civilian population, Spicer explained why the Syrian dictator is more evil than Hitler.feedback

Steven Goldenstein

On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once.feedback

Connie Britton

People tell me the 50s are the best time – I'm ready. That whole stigma of being over 40 and not being sexy anymore is fake news. We're more vibrant because we have experience, we know our bodies. I have a friend who says that you always want to make sure it's your life that you're living – it's a constant mantra.feedback

Preet Bharara

I had thought that's what Donald Trump was good at. I had thought that's in part how he got to be the president. Beats the hell out of me. Active citizenship is desperately needed now more than ever. There is a swamp. A lot of the system is rigged. And lots of your fellow Americans have been forgotten, have been left behind. Those are not 'alternative facts.' This is not fake news.feedback

Heiko Maas

Social network providers are responsible when their platforms are misused to propagate hate crimes and fake news.feedback

Dana Brunetti - Relativity Media

My first indie film was Mini's starring @AlecBaldwin who knew @NikkiReed_I_Am was 16 (not 17) and he didn't mind. In fact (Reed) was one of four actresses (Baldwin) had approved and her being the only one of those four repped by his own agency CAA. It's a lie. I read it and was like, What the f–. Of course he totally knew how old she was. That's why there's no nudity in the movie. He knew before we even cast the movie. I think he's been method acting Trump too much and he doesn't know difference between fake news anymore.feedback

Don Lemon - CNN

Normally I wouldn't address this, but he has a lot of followers and people are believing alternative facts now.feedback

Jurgen Brandt

It is fake news that Julian has agreed terms with Bayern. Julian has never been in the situation where he had to - or wanted to - make a decision on his future.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Anybody (especially the Fake News media) who thinks that Repeal & Replace of ObamaCare is dead does not know the love and strength in R Party!feedback

Evelyn Farkas

Amen, Brother. Who benefits from this fake news? R-U – S – S – I –A. I was urging my former colleagues, and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill – it was more, actually, aimed at telling the Hill people: Get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration, because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people that left. So it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy.feedback

Eugene Rumer - Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

That Russian effort is before us in plain sight – in state-sponsored propaganda broadcasts on RT (Russia Today) in countless internet trolls, fake or distorted news spread by fake news services.feedback

Clint Watts

On 11 October, President Trump stood on stage and cited what appears to be a fake news story from [the Russian propaganda outlet] Sputnik News that disappeared from the internet. He denies the intel from the United States about Russia. He claimed that the election could be rigged – that was the number one theme pushed by RT, Sputnik News.feedback

Ashley Highfield

The i has bucked the trend of declining national newspaper sales. We will see growth from our investment in the i from both the newspaper and website [this year]. Amid ever-growing concerns from advertisers, both big and small, about the placement of their brand alongside unacceptable content, and increasing uncertainty around fake news, we believe our strategic focus on providing readers and advertisers alike with news platforms that serve as a trusted source of truth and insight, put together by teams of professional reporters who know their communities, is becoming ever more important.feedback

Claudio Bravo

It's all false, that I'm looking for another place to play, because I want to leave, things that are not true. I'm happy in England and so is my family. The issue that I was not playing came out, many examples of fake news have come out. Things that, above all, have no information about them. Many things also come out from this country that are not true - that I have a psychologist, or an English teacher to have a faster adaptation.feedback

Charlie Sykes

We destroyed our own immunity to fake news while empowering the worst and most reckless voices on the right.feedback

Charles Chao

Whatever you heard recently, like what Facebook started to do, and all these social problems, [people became aware] that they need to vet information: All these, we have been doing this for many years actually. I think the views of U.S. counterparts, I mean, they don't believe that you should actually manage social platforms because users can manage the social platforms themselves – the fake news can be corrected by the system. But in China, I think we have more experience in dealing with the issues, and I think we are also more aware that this could be a problem if we don't deal with that.feedback

Tommaso Debenedetti

The war against fake news is a good idea, but the reality of social media will remain the same.feedback

Tommaso Debenedetti

It's so interesting for me to discover personalities that are not on Twitter and create an account. I did something similar in 2012 with a Philip Roth account and in 2013 with a Bob Dylan account. And last summer with Don DeLillo. Social media and fake news are the same thing, but now some people believe that social media are more reliable, believe that the war against fake news is successful, and the effect is that more people is fooled by hoaxes. It's incredible, but the war against fake news is a real opportunity for hoaxers.feedback

Marc Goldberg - YouTube

Between non-human traffic and fraud, fake news and hate speech, brands are more concerned than ever.feedback

Yannick Bollore - Havas

I think the more there's complexity in the space around measurement, fake news or the more recent problem with Google, the more our clients will have to rely on media agencies to drive trust and help them invest wisely.feedback

David Shepard Smith Jr.

CNN's reporting was not fake news. Its journalists follow the same standards to which other news organizations, including Fox News, adhere.feedback

Arsene Wenger

It is a false rumour, that is what you call 'fake news'. I formally deny it, it is not true.feedback

Rick Wilson

I think we're going to test the outer limits of the Trump 'fake news' cult. The central contention that Barack Obama wiretapped Donald Trump in Trump Tower was blown out of the water and utterly dismissed.feedback

Johannes Loew

Trump called all of this fake news. This answers the question. People like you aren't worth more of a response!feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Before FBI Director James B. Comey began his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, President Trump was back, compulsively tweeting - and underscoring the growing perception that his allegation that President Barack Obama had Trump’s “wires tapped” is nonsensical, his attachment to reality fleeting and his concern about Russian interference in the election on his behalf is palpable. He tweeted: “James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!” (Interestingly, he limited the denial of collusion to him, POTUS, only.) Certainly, he had been rattled by a parade of Republican lawmakers affirming there was no evidence of wiretapping. He was right to be anxious.feedback

Claire Wardle

What [Trump] is essentially saying is: 'don't trust anyone else, follow my Twitter account and trust me'. That is why it is so dangerous. In a democracy we have to have a free press. We we can joke about the term 'fake news' but he is doing it deliberately and he's been very successful.feedback

Howard Schneider

People call me and say, Wow, isn't it great that you came up with this course to fight fake news? It's like those actors who get discovered overnight when they've been working for 10 years. We've been fighting fake news since 2007.feedback

Carmen Amador

We started news literacy even before people started talking about fake news. But something we always asked students to do, think critically, now has new importance.feedback

Hamish Nicklin - The Guardian

In a world where the most powerful people on the planet are using fake news and alternative facts as weapons to undermine truth and those values so many of us hold so dear, it is clear that the truth itself needs some protection.feedback

Patrick Walker - Facebook

We take fake news very seriously – we appreciate that people's reliance on Facebook for news has increased dramatically.feedback

Larry Summers

I think that making policy based on facts, advancing issues based on analysis, is central to the effective functioning of government. And so I'm very concerned by the repeated tendency to engage in alternative facts and to assert things that are not supported by reality. And I think over time that will do great damage to credibility, and in many ways in governing, credibility is the coin of the realm.feedback

Nina Pillard

What if this is really a case where we are dealing with 'alternative facts?feedback

Jeff Jarvis

[Advertisers] have to cut off the air supply to fake news. They need to understand the signals of distrust and learn that they don't want their brand over 'digital urinals'. They've got to understand that quality matters. What programmatic advertising does, what individualized data and remarketing does, is cut the value of context and the value of placement. But that doesn't mean you should cut out the value of quality and the value of trust. And we've got to figure out in the advertising industry how we do that.feedback

Whoopi Goldberg

Before we left, something came out on a website – a fake news website – about me. And it endangered my family's life and it endangered my life. It turns out the entire website was created by a guy who just wanted to see how quickly stories he made up would spread.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

There have been some accusations that say that we actually want this kind of content on our service because its more content and people click on it, but that's crap. No-one in our community wants fake information. We are also victims of this and we do not want it on our service. We don't want any of it. It's not always clear what is fake and what isn't. A lot of what people are calling fake news are just opinions that people disagree with.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

It creates a chilling effect on free speech and stops the web from being used as a space to explore important topics, like sensitive health issues, sexuality or religion. There are suggestions that some political adverts – in the US and around the world – are being used in unethical ways – to point voters to fake news sites, for instance, or to keep others away from the polls. Targeted advertising allows a campaign to say completely different, possibly conflicting things to different groups. Is that democratic?feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

And, they choose what to show us based on algorithms which learn from our personal data that they are constantly harvesting. The net result is that these sites show us content they think we'll click on – meaning that misinformation, or 'fake news', which is surprising, shocking, or designed to appeal to our biases can spread like wildfire. But, we're missing a trick. As our data is then held in proprietary silos, out of sight to us, we lose out on the benefits we could realize if we had direct control over this data, and chose when and with whom to share it.feedback

Adam Rendle

There is an expectation, particularly following the fake news controversy, that platforms have a responsibility as media companies rather than neutral tech companies to ensure that what goes on their platform is appropriate, tasteful, just like a broadcaster or a newspaper.feedback

Dan Collins

Should there be an offence [for a failure] to act on a referral? That would create a massive incentive. If their sites are full of fake news, bullying … people will go to other sites. Facebook was in breach of its own community policy. Are regular users bringing complaints not being looked at? Facebook is a major media platform … Just to say this is a technology platform isn't good enough anymore … Social media is a mature industry that takes the lion's share of advertising.feedback

Dan Collins

If we reach a tipping point where the level and virality of fake news is such it is crowding out [real] news it is a challenge to democracy.feedback

Erik Wemple

Don't let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin. We are getting along great, and getting major things done!feedback

Norman Lamb

The prime minister now has serious questions to answer after she stood at the despatch box and called suggestions of a sweetheart deal 'alternative facts.feedback

David Kaye

Fake news' has emerged as a global topic of concern and there is a risk that efforts to counter it could lead to censorship, the suppression of critical thinking and other approaches contrary to human rights law.feedback

Bill Bishop

The easiest sell of President Trump’s life is that a “corrupt” media produces “fake news.” After all, fewer than 2 in 10 Americans have “a lot” of trust in news organizations, the Pew Research Center has found, and we live in a “Matrix”-infused “conspiracy culture,” according to social scientists, where one is thought to be [].feedback

Patrick Poon - Amnesty International

Although mainland Chinese mainstream media always accuse Western media coverage of China's human rights record and cases as biased, it's very rare to see them use the term 'fake news' to describe Western media reports. Some party publications might have used the term but it's just very rare in mainstream media. As Donald Trump has been discrediting some major Western media reports as 'fake news,' it seems that the mainland mainstream media might be borrowing this term from him to attack Western media coverage of human rights cases in China.feedback

Erik Wemple

Days before taking office in January, then-President-elect Donald Trump shouted down CNN correspondent Jim Acosta after his news organization had reported that the highest officials in the U.S. government had been briefed on a dossier outlining alleged contacts between Trump World and Russia. “You are fake news, ” said Trump in a combative posture that made no shortage of headlines.feedback

Chris Albrecht

Fake news means a lot of different things to different people, and it's often very hard to draw the line, obviously, between fake news and bad journalism.feedback

Philipp Schindler - Google

We have to take the fake news problem very, very seriously and think about what we can do there. Fake news means a lot of different things to different people, and it's often very hard to draw the line, obviously, between fake news and bad journalism.feedback

Richard Ferrand

These attacks are coming from the Russian border. We want a strong Europe. That's why we're subject to attacks on our information system from the Russian state. What we want is for authorities at the highest level to take the matter in hand to guarantee that there is no foreign meddling in our democracy. The Americans saw it but it came to late. Two big media outlets belonging to the Russian state Russia Today and Sputnik spread fake news on a daily basis, and then they are picked up, quoted and influence the democratic (process).feedback

Ted Lieu

It's not normal for the President of the United States, within 24 hours to write about death and destruction and fake news and evil.feedback

Laura Boldrini

His platform risks becoming home to dangerous predators ... the company has to take responsibility for this. Fake news and hate go together. It is not being done as a joke. They are looking to discredit their adversaries. It is short-circuiting democracy.feedback

Laura Boldrini

Fake news is harming people and spreading hate. Hate is poisoning the well.feedback

Anthony Anderson

I want to thank Donald Trump for expanding my vocabulary. I don't do things 'big' anymore, I do things 'bigly'. I don't lie to folks anymore. I'm merely providing alternative facts.feedback

Klaus Schwab - World Economic Forum

I would argue, that many people -- with the fast change, which they cannot anymore digest and the complexity of the world – many people are going through an identity crisis. They ask themselves, what is the purpose of my life in such a world. What is the purpose if I'm a worker somewhere in mid-America and I have to be afraid of my workplace? Facts do not anymore count, fake news may become more important than reality. So how do we address those realities?feedback

David Graham

The Trump administration has already asserted blatant lies as truth, then excused them as 'alternative facts.' Together these new statements push toward a specific pre-debunking of any media coverage of terrorist attacks, and allowing Trump to push his own counternarrative.feedback

Alain Rabatel

We'll see a real wave of fake news in the coming days. I think it's good. It's not sufficient.feedback

Alejandro Inarritu

We all know the story being written now is really, really bad. Actually it's a bad remake of one of the worst stories of the last century. The only way we win is by telling good, complex and truthful human stories. No alternative facts or false statistics will defeat that.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I bet it's brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving -- our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is.feedback

Mark Thompson - Serious Fraud Office

This is the danger with fake news. Even the president of the United States can be taken in by it and end up saying things which aren't true. We're not failing. We are growing our audiences. We are growing our subscriptions. It's Donald Trump, but also it's a bigger story about political controversy and division in this country and across the Western world. It's Brexit. It's an uncertain Europe. It's a world which feels both politically and economically very unstable.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

It happens every day and night. They are producing about us a flood, there is no other word for it, a flood of fake news.feedback

Linda Sarsour

It's not the first time, but it's definitely more intense - the fact that my children see it is what is bothering me the most. They will not succeed. I have helped build a movement, I am ready for what's to come so they can spew alternative facts and piece a twisted narrative together if they want - I and we will still rise.feedback

Jeremy Shapiro - The Brookings Institution

It's harder to do the second time, We hit peak fake news about a month ago. There will never be that level of assumed impact again.feedback

Alex Padilla

By repeating false and unsubstantiated voter fraud allegations as the cause for losing the popular vote, President Trump is dangerously attacking the legitimacy of free and fair elections and the foundation of our democracy. These are not 'alternative facts.' They are corrosive lies without any evidence. Even leaders in the President's own party agree there is no evidence to support his claims since they were irresponsibly made back in November.feedback

Mike Cernovich

They think, Oh, only dumb people think we're fake news, but that's just not the case. The media doesn't realize that it's in a massive brand crisis of legitimacy. It should be taken seriously. But they're too afraid to wake up and start playing the right game.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving -- our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is.feedback

Barack Obama

Make it easier, not harder. This whole notion of voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is fake news. The notion that there are a whole bunch of people who are going out there and are not eligible to vote and want to vote.feedback

Martin Sorrell

I think with the measurement issues, with the fake news issues, and the fraud issues that the internet faces, clients want to try and experiment.feedback

Richard Edelman - Edelman

People now view media as part of the elite. The result is a proclivity for self-referential media and reliance on peers. The lack of trust in media has also given rise to the fake news phenomenon and politicians speaking directly to the masses. Media outlets must take a more local and social approach.feedback

Heiko Maas

Facebook is earning an awful lot of money with fake news. A company that earns billions from the internet also has a social responsibility. Prosecutable defamation must be deleted immediately, once reported. It needs to be made easier for users to report fake news.feedback

Sean Spicer

The fact Buzzfeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim is a sad, pathetic attempt to get clicks. For all of the talk about fake news, this political witch hunt by some in the media is based on flimsy reporting and is frankly shameful and disgraceful.feedback

Josh Earnest

There's a discussion of this fake news phenomenon in the report as well. It's important to understand that the report that was compiled by the intelligence community goes beyond just the malicious cyber activity that Russia engaged in.feedback

Yuri Felshtinsky

During the U.S. campaign Russia created a very powerful tool to influence elections. This tool, including hacking and the creation of web sites involved in publishing fake news, will now be used everywhere.feedback

David Kostin - Goldman Sachs Group

In the realm of investing, an example of 'fake news' is the claim by some market participants that a 'great rotation' will take place from bonds to stocks. Despite a sharp rise in interest rates during the past six months and a drop in the market value of debt holdings, we expect minimal asset rotation away from debt and into equities during 2017.feedback

Kevin Pho

When fake news is retracted, people often can't tell the difference between the truth and the myth.feedback

Heidi Beirich - Southern Poverty Law Center

Facebook is getting slaughtered on the fake news front, but in many ways, this Google problem is more insidious. People might assume that what they're getting is vetted, and that certainly is not the case. You can go down a rabbit hole of hate because they're going to keep providing it to you.feedback

Carl Woog

This story is not true and appears to be yet another example of so-called fake news. The president wishes service members celebrating around the world a Merry Christmas and thanks them for what they do every day to defend the United States.feedback

Mark Testoni

We've seen improvement in some cases already. Clickbait was a big issue over the last year, which is in the same area as (fake news). And through some of the algorithms, some of that has been significantly reduced.feedback

Jim Cramer

He contradicted a previous guest, said the guest didn't know what he was talking about. Look, you can say what you want. There's fake news, real news, there's Reddit, there's sites. Say whatever you want. I don't know. I'm stuck with the facts.feedback

Rupert Murdoch - News Corporation

On a number of occasions now your paper has quoted me as saying: 'When I go into Downing Street, they do what I say; when I go to Brussels, they take no notice'. There is much fake news published about me, but let me make clear that I have never uttered those words. I have made it a principle all my life never to ask for anything from any prime minister.feedback

Paul Horner

They just write it just to write fake news, like there's no purpose, there's no satire, there's nothing clever. All the stories I wrote were to make Trump's supporters look like idiots for sharing my stories.feedback

Mike Caufield

To put this in perspective, if you combined the top stories from the Boston Globe, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and LA Times, they still had only 5 percent the viewership of an article from a fake news (site).feedback

Jenni Sargent

Fake news will definitely be a major problem in the lead up to both French and German elections. We are very carefully monitoring the potential strategies that will be employed to disrupt, distract and confuse.feedback

Pablo Suárez

It's not exactly clear what exposure people got to fake news [during the US election] and this is an active area of research. It's difficult to get hold of data from Facebook and that's one of the main obstacles to giving a full answer.feedback

Jenni Sargent

There's a skill to this which means if every single news story on your fake news website is fake then instantly readers are going to become suspicious. So the skill here is to copy and paste very reputable news stories which have been reported elsewhere but in among those is your fake news story which just adds to the confusion.feedback

Mike Walsh

From the fake news issue, we potentially see the future of news, which is algorithms and human beings working together, where the job of humans is designing the parameters and boundary conditions that drive algorithms.feedback

Simon Hegelich

Merkel is really interested in the topic of bots and fake news and hate speech on the Internet and she's very well informed.feedback

Walter Isaacson

I sometimes wonder whether humanity can survive the internet. It's been such a wonderful 20-year, 30-year run on the internet, and now you see the proliferation of fake news, hate sites, that sort of thing.feedback

Fil Menczer

One of the incentives for a good portion of fake news is money. This could cut the income that creates the incentive to create the fake news sites.feedback

Sundar Pichai - Google

You know, I think fake news as a whole could be an issue. From our perspective, there should just be no situation where fake news gets distributed, so we are all for doing better here. So, I don't think we should debate it as much as work hard to make sure we drive news to its more trusted sources, have more fact checking and make our algorithms work better, absolutely.feedback

Fil Menczer

What if it is a site with some real information and some fake news? It requires specialised knowledge and having humans (do it) doesn't scale.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

After the election, many people are asking whether fake news contributed to the result, and what our responsibility is to prevent fake news from spreading. These are very important questions and I care deeply about getting them right. I want to do my best to explain what we know here.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We don't want any hoaxes on Facebook. Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The quickest way to refute that this surely had no impact, is why would you think there's fake news on one side and not the other. We study this, we know this is a small volume.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The idea that fake news on Facebook influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea. I think there is a certain profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason someone could have voted the way they did is because they saw fake news. If you believe that then I don't think you have internalized the message Trump supporters are trying to send in this election.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I want you to teach the Taksin protesters a lesson in a democratic way, through the local elections which will be held in seven months. You will give the answer in the elections to those who promoted fake news in the country and in the world, because there are some people who do not want Turkey to grow, or be strong.feedback
