By now, fake news is a term we are all familiar with. Fake news, junk news, pseudo-news and related terms are all used to describe the same thing: news consisting of deliberate misinformation spread via traditional or other online media. Digital communication and the rise of social media has increased the amount of fake news and made it easier to produce. Fake business news often first appear in social media, but it quickly finds its way to the mainstream media as well.

Fake news is written and published usually with the intent to mislead the reader to damage someone, a person or an organization, or gain financially or politically, using sensationalist headlines to increase readership. Accordingly, these stories and headlines help earn advertising revenue. Publishing a story with false content that attracts users, benefits advertisers, and improves ratings. 

The relevance of fake news is an increasing problem for people using media monitoring services and striving to make decisions based on changes in the environment. Fake news undermines serious media coverage and makes it more difficult for the audience to judge the relevance of business news.
