Moat is a company that provides visibility into billions of ads every day, and has proposed that it create a metric as to whether the sites that the ads are served to serve up fake news, and simply not pay any sites that are.

But building a white list over time would definitely go a long way towards stopping its proliferation in the internet age, and cutting off the dollars would go even further.
