Amanda Robb reporting for Rolling Stone in partnership with The Investigative Fund takes a deep dive into the murky origins of fake news. She traveled as far as Macedonia to unearth the anatomy of potential election-swinging stories that were once simply tabloid fodder but today are delivered right to your Facebook feed.
