The HLG on “fake news” will advise the EU Commission on misinformation spreading across traditional and social media, and how to cope with its social and political consequences. All foreseen categories are present: 7 academics, 9 representatives of the written press & journalist unions, 7 from broadcast news, 11 from civil society and fact-checking, and 6 representatives of social media platforms.

Here is one more statistic: the expert group is composed of 25 men and 15 women (including a chairwoman).

The actual list, below has been enriched with links to individual profiles, and where applicable links to articles on “fake news” (further hints welcomed).

Academia: 7

Platform: 6

Press: 9

Civil Society/Fact checker: 11

Broadcaster: 7


The categories and stats above have been prepared rapidly by Fondation EURACTIV, and may be complemented or corrected: remarks are welcomed.

Under my early hypothesis, five relevant solutions could help address the viral dissemination of misinformation: EU co-regulation, independent measurement of fake news, bundling fact-checkers’ inputs, fostering several ‘credibility indexes’, and platform algorithms to reflect a credibility index.
