Author networks
Abstract:This project synthesizes a set of 246 fake news websites previously identified in three earlier research projects. From this dataset, we extract a set of all authors who have written for these sites in 2016. This authorcentric dataset is itself a contribution that will allow future analysis of the fake news ecosystem. Based on the data we collected, we construct a network of fake news sites, linking them if they shared a common author. Our analysis shows a tight cluster of author-sharing sites, with a small core set of sites sharing dozens of authors.
