A media fake is false information spread through the media in order to deceive the public. This may be fake news, fictional stories, photographs or videos that may be created or distributed for the purpose of political or economic manipulation, strengthening positions of power, damaging reputation, creating panic, or just for fun.

Media fakes can be created in a variety of ways: for example, by editing videos, photos or audio recordings, using Photoshop, creating fictional stories, or quoting non-existent sources.

Media fakes can cause serious problems, including mass panic, the spread of inaccurate information, damage to the reputation of people and organizations, and can also influence political decisions and lead to social instability.

Therefore, in order to combat media fakes, it is important to verify the information you receive from sources, as well as contact reliable news sources to make sure it is accurate.
