Apple News has launched a special section to cover the 2020 presidential election, with the aim of only displaying reliable sources of information and avoiding fake news.
The 59th Presidential Election in the History of the United States will be held on November 3, 2020. An event of fundamental importance to the country and to the world. The last election, Donald Trump’s victory, was at the center of much controversy over the spread of false information about various social networks that would have helped the current president win the presidential election.
For its part, Facebook & co. have taken steps to prevent the spread of fake news during the elections. Apple will also try to do the same with the News platform.
The section will include not only information from reliable sources, but also a guide to candidates and proposals, real-time results, live broadcast of debates and other special content.
