History of US Fake News

Engagement with “Fake News” on Facebook is Declining
The National Bureau of Economic Resources measured the diffusion of fake news stories on Facebook and Twitter between 1/15 and 7/18.
False content rose steadily on both Facebook and Twitter through the end of 2016 but dropped by  measurably from Facebook but not for twitter.

Quick History
In the Late 19th Century The New York Times
began century long era of Unbiased News with the slogan
"All The News That's Fit To Print".
 

The era bottomed in 1969 when the
fairness doctrine
for broadcast media was eliminated.
Talk Radio and
Identity Politics Flourished.

Increased political contributions resulting from
Citizens United v. FEC affected money available
for alternative new sources with both intended and
unintended Fake News getting their share.
