According to the UK Telegraph, the Internet is a conspiracy that spreads disinformation, says Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with creating the web.
And you probably thought it was Al Gore, who invented the internet.
Al Gore got an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize for not contesting the US presidential election -- but he did NOT get knighted like Sir Tim.
That's why this arrogant blowhard can say that "a new system is needed to be put in place that would differentiate between reliable websites that use trusted sources and those that do not."

"On the web, the thinking of cults can spread very rapidly and suddenly a cult which was 12 people who had some deep personal issues suddenly find a formula which is very believable," he told the BBC.

"Sir Tim Berners-Lee is backing a new project, the World Wide Web Foundation, which aims to accelerate the progress of the internet and make it more easily available and accessible in developing nations.

Sure. As long as Control Freak Assholes like Sir Tim Berners Lee are in charge...
