Fake news believed by Swiss to threaten democracy
A new survey shows most people in the country believe the spread of fake news is a threat to democracy and social cohesion.
Four fifths say fake news is affecting political debate. The numbers were released by the Sotomo Research Center.
Most people believe all sides of the political debate are responsible.
Schools are seen as a possible solution. Most say children should be taught about news, how journalists use sources and what they can trust. But there’s little support for legal measures to stop debate on social media.
