Pope Francis has condemned disinformation as “probably the greatest damage that the media can do”.

His comments come amid warnings of a “fake news” crisis in online media following last month’s US elections.

Social media platforms and search engines were widely criticised in the poll’s aftermath for failing to prevent the spread of fabricated stories.

The Pope himself fell victim to a fake news story, which falsely reported his endorsement of Donald Trump.
