FF want to jail and fine people for spreading 'fake news' on social media. You could be fined up to 10,000 or face 5 years in jail.
Is their real motivation the fact that there is a lot more criticism of Fianna Fail online than you will find in the mainstream press?
By cracking down on the internet, FF could limit people's free speech to criticise them.
FF were reported to be incensed by an internet report that their TDs were cheering a possible election.
