There has been much debate across the internet post-election regarding the impact of fake news on the election as well as the hearts and minds of the American people.
It should come as no surprise not everyone agrees a particular article is actually fake news. Snopes cautions us to make a clear distinction between bad news and fake news. Bad news lacks journalistic integrity where the reporter attempts to mislead the reader by weaving actual facts into the story along with personal bias designed to appear to also be fact.
In contrast, fake news contains no verifiable facts and is often used as link bait to increase ad revenue on the fake news site.
