How Fake News Affects Democracy

Fake news can affect democracy in many ways.  Starting with changing someone’s view of a political candidate. It could make them change their mind maybe because they think they should vote for one of the other candidates, or maybe because they have been told something negative about the candidate they were going to vote for. This is very bad because that means people aren’t really thinking for themselves.  This is a problem because it means in the future, people will rely on news to tell them what to decide on or what to do. That’s when fake news comes into action.  After it has taken it’s toll, no-one will be able to think for themselves and that will become a catastrophe in bigger and more important elections for more important things.
