By analysing newspaper editorials and considering the problem of fake news as a critical incident confronting journalism, this study found that news organizations in the US recognize fake news as a social problem while acknowledging the challenge in defining it. They generally considered fake news as a social media phenomenon thriving on political polarization driven by mostly ideological, but sometimes also financial, motivations. Therefore, they assigned blame for the rise of fake news to the current political environment, to technological platforms Google and Facebook, and to audiences.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/151075||ISSN:||1751-2786||DOI:||10.1080/17512786.2018.1562958||Rights:||© 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
