Visualizing the Biggest Fake News Stories of 2017

2017 was a year characterized by “Fake News”. A term first claimed by the left an outcry against poor and false journalism, it was quickly appropriated by the right, which used it to criticize the whole of the “mainstream media”. Their argument was that most journalism coming from major outlets was poorly or even falsely reported. Data Is Beautiful has compiled all of the data from Snopes and Google, and created a visualization showing the biggest Fake News stories of 2017.
