In an article by the Washington Post, Russia has been discovered to have been spreading fake news in an effort to defeat democratic nominee Hilary Clinton. The effort sought to magnify the appearances of international tensions and "promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia". They made an effort to shake trust in democracy and government.

I do believe that trust in democracy has been incited in the USA. Perhaps not solely because of Russia, but I do see the "desired mentality" regardless. What do you guys think?

actually, fake news is usually spread everywhere by everyone who does not think of the truth and share through the internet. nowadays, the network is so developed that everyone knows if a piece of news is spread through sharing by 10 times. this kind of news is usually small or not significant one. however, it is so horrible to hear that the fake news is in election. something related to this important topics should have been verified before spread.
