Examples of fake news texts
Fake news debate questions
Does the media have an obligation to be truthful?
Fake news websites intentionally publish fraudulent, hoax or factually inaccurate news stories. They will also plagiarise legitimate news stories from other sites, but change the headlines to something more sensationalist in order to draw in readers. Fake news is often shared on social media.
You also often get fake news articles at the bottom of blog posts. Click bait.

Stanley Cohen 1972
"A condition, episode, person, or groups of persons that emerged to become defined as a threat to societal values and interests"
