Abstract
The mass Media are economic agents. For the editorial staff of the media, making a profit becomes a determining factor and a condition for survival. The practice of publishing unverified and unreliable information (fakes) has become widespread in the media, which can be explained by the logic of attracting a readership. The article deals with the phenomenon of fake in the modern media space, analyzes examples of such news from the regional media. The reasons and motives for the emergence of fakes in media sphere are indicated. The authors conclude that the fake has deeper socio-economic and political roots than is commonly believed. At that, the development of Internet technologies and the expansion of the media space only strengthens the overall mass of fake content in journalistic materials.
