A group of professors and researchers are offering an unorthodox approach to fixing the problem of “fake news,” which has been blamed for the rise in voter fraud in recent elections.
The term is a pejorative for anything that purports to be independent, independent of government or political elites.
But some experts say the term, which originated as a criticism of the news media, has morphed into an accusation that many political and news outlets are using it as a catch-all.
Their argument is that the term is not only misleading but also dangerous because it can serve as a platform for misinformation.
The group, the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism (CSHA), a nonprofit research group based in Chicago, has issued a new report called “Fake News, Fake News, and Hate: A Survey of Fake News and Hate Crimes.”
The researchers interviewed more than 1,500 individuals in a variety of news media across the United States, including Fox News, The New York Times, BuzzFeed, CNN, the Huffington Post, the Washington Post and Salon.
Their research indicates that hate crimes against journalists, bloggers, social media users, and other targets of fake news spiked between September and November of last year.
A large majority of hate crimes have been motivated by racism or anti-Semitism.
The study found that hate-related crime against journalists rose from 3.5 percent in September to 5.6 percent in November of 2017.
The report found that 3.1 percent of all hate crimes are attributed to fake news, and 7.2 percent are based on conspiracy theories.
The CSHA researchers found that fake news is a powerful weapon for propagating racist ideologies and anti-Semitic beliefs.
They also found that the rise of fake stories has had an impact on the behavior of some members of the public.
A number of recent articles in The Washington Post, BuzzFeed and Salon have documented the rise and use of fake accounts to spread racist and anti.
Semitic content online.
A BuzzFeed article published earlier this year described the rise to prominence of the “alt-right,” an online community that emerged after Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016.
“Alt-right” is a code word for “alt right.”
The term “alt” is used to describe people who hold racist and/or anti-Jewish beliefs, and is sometimes shortened to “right wing,” or “right-wing” in some contexts.
“White supremacist” is also used to refer to someone who believes in the supremacy of white people.
The phrase “alt media” is an acronym for “alternative media.”
It is used by a number of websites to refer not to mainstream media outlets, but to fake, conspiratorial news sites and blogs.
The “alt left” is another term for the “left wing,” which is a term used to dismiss criticism of white nationalism, anti-racism and other forms of racism.
The researchers found in their survey that hate crime against the news and media is increasing.
In the first three months of 2017, there were 586 hate crimes in the U.S., up from 454 the same period in 2016.
The authors found that more than half of the cases were against journalists and editors of news and opinion websites.
“Fake news” is often cited as a justification for such crimes.
“It’s a form of hate crime, but it’s really not,” said Jonathan Haidt, a professor at the University of California, Irvine, and a professor of psychology at Brandeis University.
“The problem is it’s used in a way that’s a little less subtle, and it can be much more direct.”
Haidts co-authored a study that examined the role of “misinformation” and “misleading” stories in inciting violence against Muslims, which have a history of being promoted by fake news.
He also noted that fake stories are often “accurate” or “accurately sourced.”
The authors of the CSHA report did not find that “fake media” has any role in inciting hate crimes, but they did find that fake articles can have a chilling effect on journalists and the public at large.
The fear that news organizations are becoming more and more “fake” or that people are becoming less trusting of their sources is driving some people to use “fake content” as a tactic of attack, said Haidtt.
“This is not the end of the story,” he said.
“We’re going to be seeing these trends for a long time.
I think we’ll continue to see this.”
The “fake-news” phenomenon is not new.
Haidtz noted that news media has been used as a weapon for more than a century.
The Nazis used the term “fake.”
The Nazis, according to historian Joseph Goebbels, used fake news to try to “get people to believe they were not in control.”
The same phenomenon also played a role in World War I, when “fake newspapers” were used to spread propaganda and spread false news.
The Nazi propaganda machine also
