Summary
"Is fake news merely news with which one disagrees? Donald Trump's use of the term notwithstanding, the editors of this collection argue that fake news is a real problem and is on the rise thanks to converging political, economic, social, and technological factors. These include practices in journalism, technological disruptions of news creation and consumption, and the impact of regulatory debates and policy decisions. This collection provides a truly interdisciplinary exploration of fake news in all of its iterations and complexities within the U.S. Too often discussions of fake news take place in isolated spheres at conferences devoted specifically to media literacy, computer science, or journalism. Considerations of the ways in which these areas interact, overlap, and contradict each other we will be useful for thinking through the past influences, present challenges, and future solutions to different kinds of mis/disinformation"--
