Fake news infests the Internet, causing information pollution and poisoning the public debate. This session aims to discover first the psychological reasons that underlie its popularity, and to pinpoint its link with hate speech. Then, this session will proceed to investigate how fake news impacts on EU politics, with a focus on Russian disinformation. Finally, it will define the measures adopted by the EU to combat fake news and cast attention on the role of journalists.
