Prince Harry Issues 15 Demands for Leaders, Tech Industry to Defeat Fake News

SIMON KENT 16 Nov 2021

Prince Harry issued a 15-point list of demands Tuesday to drive leaders and the tech industry in the fight against fake news.

The sixth in line to the British throne declared misinformation a “global humanitarian issue” and “superspreaders” who resist must be held to account “regardless of location, or political views, or role in society.”

Harry, who has previously voiced his concerns about an “avalanche of misinformation” driven by digital media, was involved in a six-month study on the state of the U.S. media conducted by the Aspen Institute’s new Commission on Information Disorder.
