To obtain information on the demographics that are most influenced/impacted by "fake news", those that that care the most about "fake news" and those that are actively seeking solutions for how to measure "fake news."
According to the authors of the study, “it is possible that an entire cohort of Americans, now in their 60s and beyond, lacks the level of digital media literacy necessary to reliably determine the trustworthiness of news encountered online.”
Findings also reveal that 82% of Americans say they are concerned about fake news and its impact on the credibility of real news and information, with 47% saying they are “very” concerned.
The view that fake news causes incivility in America is consistent across gender and generation. They believe fake news stirs up emotions such as anger, confusion, anxiety and disengagement, all leading to greater incivility and polarization.
