Hate Speech Dissemination and Pseudo News Fabrication in Ethiopia
Abstract: This research examines on the recent exhibition of rogue behavior in the Ethiopian spreading hatred speech and falsehood news. Informed by measures taken in other countries, it offers some thoughts on how best to overcome the rapidly growing ills of social media deception campaigns in Ethiopia. For the sake of convenience, this essay uses the terms 'problematic content', 'pseudo news' and 'deception' interchangeably unless the context dictates otherwise. Suggestions offered are likewise intended to apply to the phenomena of problematic internet content, deception and pseudo news campaigns. Governments of today exercise significant authority in the digital space. But challenges still remain especially in fully regulating what is called the dark web, where numerous criminal activities take place shielded; while cyber anarchist views soon surrendered to the reality of government - and substantial private - power, views of similar touch emerge occasionally in various forms.
