Internet Archive Launches Efforts to Display Warnings on Fake News

This service allows you to browse sites that have been deleted or made private so that you can no longer see them, but some of the deleted sites have been deleted as fake news. So the Internet Archive has begun efforts to display warnings so that Wayback Machines do not help spread fake news.
