Fake news is false news that appears to be real only because it has the ability to draw an audience who will give it life. Whether the news is factual or not, the more likes or views something has, the truer it is in the eyes of most. According to an article on the CBS website, "fake news is used to describe stories that are provably false, have an enormous traction in the culture, and are consumed by millions of people".
