Fake news is a term used to describe false news content masquerading as real journalism. It is fabricated and spread on the internet and social media to intentionally deceive, misinform, sensationalize, bias, or lure viewers into click content of dubious value. Its intent is to satirize, influence public opinion, and generate ad revenue. This is a global problem causing confusion and misunderstanding about important social and political issues.
