The European Commission wants to certify “true” information

The European Commission has announced that it will fight disinformation. In practice, it means censoring and telling what is true and what is not. The largest Czech political group on Facebook has already been suspended because someone has reported that it has been promoting hatred for certain groups of people.

Disproof

In its Communication, the European Commission proposed an EU-wide Code of Practice on Disinformation. The code will aim to achieve 5 goals. One of these aims is literally "Making it easier for users to discover and access different news sources representing alternative viewpoints". For the Facebook group referred to (which allegedly was suspended), it is clear that it still exists and with 3789 members it is not the biggest Facebook on the Czech Facebook.

US freezes funding for White Helmets due to their role in the chemical attack in Douma

Witnesses confirmed that the White Helmets organised the Douma chemical attacks, and then the US froze funding to the White Helmets. In fact,  witnesses gave their testimony at the Hague confirming that there was no chemical attack. The White Helmets supported terrorist groups on numerous occasions, which also played a role in the US freezing funding for them.
