In recent years, many countries are beset by the problem of fake news, whether in terms of national security, public health, political choice, or people’s livelihood and consumption. “The incident of the Kansai International Airport” further brings the issue of fake news into the spotlight in Taiwan. On top of that, the growing threat from China, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the social antagonism all remind us that fake news has posed a constant menace to us.
However, fake news is hardly new. Where there are people, there is fake news. To protect themselves or invade others, creatures have evolved camouflage of every stripe that bewilders their enemies. We can’t help wondering how fake news is formed in the age of mass and social media. Does digital technology help fake news go viral? How do fake news and people affect each other?
