NCC TO DISCUSS VERIFICATION MECHANISM WITH FACEBOOK|建立新聞"真實查核" NCC邀臉書.LINE討論

Criticized as interfering with the freedom of press, DPP legislators' proposal of an anti-infiltration act and the revision of the Fundamental Communications Act to sanction fake news has sparked controversy. On March 16, Premier Lin Chuan stated that he will put Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang in charge of establishing a verification mechanism to address the fake news. Meanwhile, the National Communications Commission said that it will invite representatives from Facebook, Google, and Line to discuss how to implement such mechanism. Fake pictures posted after an earthquake and a rumor of a fire in Kaohsiung's MRT train were only two cases observed in the escalation of fake news recently. On March 16, the National Communications Commission said that it will invite representatives from Facebook, Google, and Line to discuss how to establish a verification mechanism in April. ==LIN CHUN-HSIEN DPP Legislator and CHAN TING-I NCC Chairperson== We will invite industry representatives to share their international practice and suggest a mechanism for Taiwan. Facing the criticism to DPP legislators' proposal of an anti-infiltration act and the revision of the Fundamental Communications Act, Premier Lin Chuan stated that he will put Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang in charge of building the verification mechanism instead of making or amending laws. ==HSU KUO-YONG Executive Yuan Spokesperson== To safeguard freedom and openness of the Internet and uphold Internet governance, the government will commission industry representatives and a third party to implement a verification mechanism to curb fake news instead of making new laws or amending laws. According to Taiwan Media Watch, verification may be outpaced by the spread of messages. The government should also define fake news and fake information. ==LEE TZE-WEI Director, Taiwan Media Watch== The definitions of fake news and fake information are somewhat ambiguous. Fake news is more difficult to tackle than fake information. According to the Executive Yuan, under such verification mechanism, people will be reminded before posting information that has been clarified and will be held liable for such posts. The details of the mechanism are expected to come out within two months.

NCC主委 詹婷怡== 我們會邀請業者 然後看看說 業者在國際上有什麼作法 他在台灣可以給我們 什麼樣的機制 對於有民進黨立委擬提出反滲透法草案及修正通訊傳播基本法,納入管制假新聞,遭外界批評干預新聞自由。上午行政院長林全也在會中指示,將由政委唐鳳建立真實查核機制,管制假新聞,不會立法或修法來處理。 ==行政院發言人 徐國勇== 基於維護網際網路 自由開放的前提 用網路治理的概念 由業者及第三方團體 來建立一個真實查核機制 期能有效遏制 而不會以立法 或修法的方式來管理 而媒體觀察基金會則認為,真實查核機制恐怕比不過訊息流通速度,而且政府是要在處理假消息還是假新聞,必須先定義清楚。 ==媒體觀察基金會主任 李子瑋== 的確假新聞跟假消息 是兩個它的界線其實是 目前看下來大家都有點模糊 假新聞的話 其實處理 會比假消息更複雜 而對於什麼是真實查核機制?行政院發言人徐國勇解釋,民眾PO文若已經有人更正,將會跳出提醒,但民眾若堅持PO文,就須負上法律責任,政府預計2個月內會提出詳細方案。 綜合報導
