In early September 2018 Dr. Rubin was interviewed by Niels Waarlo
, Techjournalist De Volkskrant. Rubin and Waarlo exchanged several e-mails and on September 14, 2018 Waarlo published an article in the Dutch newspaper, De Volkskrant,
a daily morning newspaper with a circulation of about 250,000. The piece is about the difficulties with creating online detectors for fake news:

Thank you, Niels, for reaching out to us!
