This is the text (if you need help).

The man who made the Internet is worried. He said people are using the web in dangerous ways. Firstly, companies are making fake news to fool people. This "spreads like wildfire". The second danger is political adverts. They can stop people from voting. Third is government or company control of our personal data.

The web started in 1989. The inventor wanted something for everyone, everywhere to share information and have opportunities. There are now difficult problems with no simple answers. He wants people to control their personal data. He said this helps free speech. He also wants to fight fake news. He asked Internet users to help.
