As the media frenzy intensifies over fake news and misinformation, many of us are still searching for the clues.
Here’s what you need to know.
The New Fake News Is Real.
The fake news phenomenon has been raging for years.
But in 2017, it’s taking on a new twist: It’s not just that fake news is now on the rise, but that fake media is also becoming more sophisticated.
This week, a new type of fake news emerged: fake news that was created by bots.
It’s an extension of the Internet’s automated news delivery system.
The bots spread a wide range of misinformation and propaganda, and they often appear to be from legitimate news sources, according to a recent study by The Verge and TechCrunch.
(We’ve highlighted three of the most popular bot-influenced stories over the past several months.)
Here are the three most common bots: BuzzFeed and Drudge Report BuzzFeed has become a hub of the fake news ecosystem, with more than a million articles published since 2017.
In 2016, BuzzFeed published a fake article claiming President Trump had “been hospitalized” in Arizona after suffering from a rare and debilitating disease called glaucoma.
The article was picked up by the Drudge News service, which is known for peddling fake news.

BuzzFeed is the first to say that this is not the first time the BuzzFeed bot has been responsible for spreading fake news, although the article itself has been widely shared online.
BuzzFeed has since taken down the article, which has since been pulled from the site.
BuzzFeed, Drudge, and BuzzFeed have all been cited in news outlets, including The Verge.
BuzzFeed also posted a statement in response to the news that it has removed a story claiming that Trump had suffered a stroke.
BuzzFeed says it “removes content and accounts it believes are spreading misinformation, including hoaxes and false claims.”
BuzzFeed says that it is taking down the Dr.udge article.
But that doesn’t stop Drudge from repeating the claim on multiple occasions.
“BuzzFeed has not retracted the Druke Report article, and will continue to publish it as long as it remains accurate,” the company said.

Drudge’s post has been cited by outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post.
BuzzFeed’s Drudge report is now the most shared fake news article in the history of the site, according the Drude Report.
BuzzFeed and its bots have also been accused of pushing false news on social media, including false claims about the shooting of a police officer in Minneapolis in 2017 and false allegations about the death of a man who was shot by police in Florida.
BuzzFeed said it has taken down three of its posts that were linked to the false Minneapolis report.
The sites did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Motherboard.
BuzzFeed reported on its website that it had removed the “unverified” post because it had been shared by more than 200 people.
BuzzFeed did not specify which people had shared the fake Minneapolis article, but a BuzzFeed spokesperson told Motherboard that it removed all of its content in that post.
DrudeReport, a popular online news aggregator, has also been a target.
According to the company’s Twitter account, it has received more than 7.5 million mentions since 2017 on Twitter, more than twice as many as the most recent week.
BuzzFeed shared that it was taken down from DrudgeReport because it shared fake content.
BuzzFeed spokesperson Jennifer Schilling told Mothercard that the Drusion Report posts that BuzzFeed had removed had been linked to “fake content and misinformation.”
BuzzFeed also shared that the fake Minnesota article had been removed from the Drounce Report.
“Our algorithm has been updated to prevent us from being able to determine if a story has a legitimate basis,” BuzzFeed said in a statement to Motherboard, adding that it would continue to remove fake news from its site.
In 2018, BuzzFeed’s platform removed several articles and accounts that it believed to be spreading fake information about Donald Trump.
BuzzFeed News did not respond to Mothercard’s request for further comment.
The Verge found a similar situation with fake news on Facebook in 2017 when it published a story about a Trump rally that was linked to a fake Facebook event page.
BuzzFeed removed the article and all of the accounts associated with it.
BuzzFeed later reported that Facebook was taken off of the page and that all the information had been deleted.
BuzzFeed added that it shared with Motherboard the screenshots of the pages on the Dright Report that had been taken down.
BuzzFeed told Mothership that it also removed fake posts on the Facebook page for the event.
BuzzFeed eventually told Motherdeck that all of those posts were removed from Facebook.
