On Monday's Backchat: "fake news"; and elderly drivers.
The government is studying ways to stop the spread of "fake news" and disinformation online, using overseas experience as a reference point, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said.
Speaking at the Forum on Network Media of China, she said officials had to supervise and manage the media in an appropriate fashion, as "prevention is better than cure."
Earlier, Chief Secretary John Lee supported a self-regulatory model for the media.
From 9:15am, we’re talking about elderly drivers, after the Ombudsman urged the Transport Department to tighten medical requirements for older drivers.
