Fake News and Economic Journalism

Asya Asenova


The nonobjective journalistic interpretation of economic facts can lead to both minor and serious consequences, ranging from the individual recipient to a whole business sector. Therefore, the fundamental principle of providing reliable information to society is of particular importance for the economic field. The paper addresses the issue of unintentional distribution of fake news in the context of economic journalism and new media. The combination of political, social, economic and technological factors has contributed to the growth and scale of the problem, with the most important one being the impact of the internet environment, which has turned fake news into an unwanted function or rather a dysfunction of digital media.
