Abstract:Fake news refers to content that is intentionally fake but that looks and feels like real news. The term has been used politically to discredit specific news articles, stories, or publishers. This is an in-progress quasi-experimental study that examines whether the appearance of metadata and how a news article document is styled influences different perceptions of a news article as fake news among participants with different political persuasions. The study could make important contributions to information literacy research and make a theoretical contribution to the role that documents play in political information.
