The Cost of Fake News
While the "fake news" issue is currently a hot topic, it's been a problem in the business world for a long time. A bad news story can cause plummeting stock prices, destroy the reputation of a business, or cause unreasonable customer expectations. Unethical businesses can also generate fake news or reviews in order to boost their own stature or profits.
