EC President Accuses Orban and Other Populists of Spreading Fake News

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has accused Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and other European populist leaders of spreading misinformation. Juncker, in remarks made on 14 December during the closing press conference of the EU Summit, said that attempts to blame him for Brexit and migration were both "fake news". "When Mr Orban for example is saying that I am responsible, guilty for the Brexit: fake news," Juncker said. "When he is saying that migrants are responsible for the Brexit: fake news."
