The site will be funded primarily by donations, like Wikipedia, through crowdfunding campaigns. The hope is Wikitribune will differentiate itself from traditional news organizations by allowing the online community to work with professional reporters to represent facts and offer greater transparency into what goes on in a newsroom. The site's tagline is: 'Evidence-based journalism'. Is any of this working? With the steps Google and Facebook have taken in recent months, one might wonder if any of them are doing anything to stop fake news. Unfortunately, it appears too early to tell, but the recent election in France gives some hope that the measures arent for naught. Leading up to May 7s French presidential election, Facebook suspended 30,000 fake accounts that were spreading fake news, spam and misinformation, according to Reuters .

May quietly approached Trump during a family photo at the NATO summit to say the UK was unhappy about leaks in US media revealing details about the attack that killed 22 people at a pop concert.

CAIRO: Egypt has banned 21 websites, including the main website of Qatar-based Al Jazeera television, for "supporting terrorism", state news agency MENA and security sources said on Wednesday. Reuters tried to access five websites named by local Egyptian newspapers and broadcasters, including the Al Jazeera website, and found them all inaccessible. There was no immediate official comment available. An official from the National Telecom Regulatory Authority could not confirm or deny the news, but said: "So what if it is true? It should not be a problem." MENA cited a senior security source as saying the websites, which also included some Egypt-focused websites hosted abroad such as Masr Al Arabiya that the government says are financed by Qatar, were blocked because they supported terrorism. "A senior security source said 21 websites have been blocked inside Egypt for having content that supports terrorism and extremism as well (as) publishing lies," MENA said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says she will raise concerns Thursday with President Donald Trump over U.S. leaks to the media revealing details of the Manchester bombing investigation. Police working on the Manchester case, who are “furious about the disclosures,” have stopped sharing information with their American counterparts, according to the BBC. The halt in sharing with the United States of police information about the attack will remain in place until assurances are received from Washington that there will be no further leaks, the Reuters news agency quoted sources as saying on Thursday. Various U.S. media outlets reported the name of the suicide bomber, attributing the information to American officials, before it was released by British officials. The New York Times subsequently published forensic photographs from the attack, which had not been officially released.
