The internet needs a way to help people separate rumour from real science, says the creator of the World Wide Web.

Talking to BBC News Sir Tim Berners-Lee said he was increasingly worried about the way the web has been used to spread disinformation.

Sir Tim spoke prior to the unveiling of a Foundation he has co-created that aims to make the web truly worldwide.

It will also look at ways to help people decide if sites are trustworthy and reliable sources of information.

TVNL Comment: No such concerns over the disinformation spread in the broadcast media? How interesting that they want to fact check the fact checkers...but the establishment sources are free to create and maintain a false reality.
