Fake news is an issue I have seen pop up more often. I see it everywhere; on Twitter, on news websites, and on YouTube. I find it annoying and irrelevant. Fake news is so easy to create yet it comes with very serious consequences. People affected by fake news can have their lives drastically changed, and the results can be irreversible. Even though stories written about people can later be addressed as fake, the lives of the affected will never be the same. Their reputations will be ruined and it can be hard for them to recover. The people who write fake news stories should be punished strongly so that it deters others from conjuring stories of their own.
