Part 1: Quebec’s Fake News Problem
In English media, there are whole organizations and departments devoted to debunking fake news. But in Quebec, a lot of the work falls to one guy: Jeff Yates. He talks to guest host Brigitte Noël about the unique challenges of combating fake news in French and why he thinks it’s time to destigmatize sharing bogus stories.
You can read Jeff’s work (if you speak French) over at Radio-Canada.
