Internet reform at cross-purposes

I notice something odd about this Vanity Fair article on and interview with World Wide Web pioneer Tim Berners-Lee.  Berners-Lee is talking about how to make the web less centralized.  The author, Katrina Brooker, is concerned about how to squash fake news and keep President Trump and Russia from using their web-based mind control powers.  Presumably the answer to that is more centralized censorship.  Do the two realize that they are speaking at cross-purposes, or is at least one of them that muddle-headed?
