Abstract

With the rise of social media as a tool for people to project their opinions and ideas on anything they want, fake news and the spread of false information has increased. Fake news has become especially problematic in politics. People skew the truth to fit whatever political ideology they believe in. News is no longer about fact versus fiction but a battle about individuals' beliefs. With growing tension and the United States becoming more divided, this project worked to further analyze fake news in relation to politics and social media.
