Why is fake news so fascinating to the brain?

Present-day fake news generates an “information disorder” in which news satire, parody, fabrication, manipulation, advertising, and propaganda are blended and denoted using a threefold distinction: (1) misinformation, that is, unintentional incorrect information; (2) disinformation, that is, the deliberate fabrication and/or sharing of false information; (3) mal-information, that is, deliberate publication of true private/sensitive information with change of context (cherry picking).
