Nowadays’ fake news is making various issues from mocking articles to a created news and plan government publicity in certain outlets. Fake news and the absence of trust in the media are developing issues with immense consequences in our general public. It is needed to look into how the techniques in the fields of computer science using machine learning, natural language processing helps us to detect fake news. Fake news is now observed as one of the major threats to freedom of expression, journalism, and democracy of a country. In this research, a comprehensive way of detecting fake news using machine learning model has been presented that is trained by Fake News data based on US election and trained on recent Indian political Fake news.
