Hi Buddy, here is the copy of the essay. In case of edits, clarification or so let me know and we work on it together.
The paper is an essay that is three pages. It has introduction where fake news are defined and
thesis stated. It answers the following questions in details.
What exactly is fake news and who decides whether it is factual or fake (is there a gray area)?
• Who or what is ultimately responsible for the spreading of fake news and conspiracy theories?
Should the blame be placed more on the consumers of media or the companies that create and
spread false information?
• Although powerful/influential Internet sites like Facebook, Google, and Twitter are trying to
manage the amount of fake news and propaganda that is being spread on its platforms, are they
doing enough, and if not, what more can they do to stem this trend? •
Why are some groups of people (elderly, conservatives) more susceptible to fake news or are just
unwilling to question “questionable” news? And, how has Trump changed the ways in which the
younger generation (teens) understands and processes the news?
• When most of what exists on the Internet is “fake” or false, how can we trust anything that we
read, hear or see anymore?
• When the president calls mainstream news media sources like CNN and The New York Times
fake news, or alters the meaning of the term “fake news” (if it’s a critical story about him or),
how does that affect the credibility of these news organizations?
