missing call. newton elected to lead germany's largest opposition party but mainstream parties have refused to work with the f.t. which has made significant electoral gains in germany's eastern regions they say the party encourages political violence or its anti immigration policies. well now to political developments in the mid be the president there is one a 2nd term in office haji dangled one just over 56 percent of the vote he was 1st elected in 2014 with a sweeping majority but his popularity has slipped after growing frustration with a lack of jobs and economic difficulties. for the 1st time facebook has added a correction notice to users post saying the original message contained false information it complies with an order from singapore's government concerning fake news facebook embedded a correction notice of the bottom of the original post but it did not alter the text itself singapore's protection from online false hoods and manipulation act was
1:23 am
passed in may this allows the government to publish corrections alongside claims about public institutions false statements could carry prison terms of up to 10 years and hefty fines we spoke to kristen hanna singapore and journalist and editor in chief of new member funded multimedia platform she explained to us the fight against fake news that it might not be as clear cut as it seems. so under the protection from online false and manipulation acts the singapore government defines fake news so it in the very open you know it says that a false statement of fact is a statement that is false or misleading and that's how i believe in in the law and so the government has a lot of latitude to decide what is the news they say ultimately you can take it to the courts but the reality is that in the 1st and 2nd it's up to them and you know
