    Keywords : Fake news; post-truth; professional boundaries; boundary work; journalistic paradigm; propaganda; misleading information;

    Abstract : This thesis takes a spearheaded look at a modern, much-talked about concept of misleading information known as ”fake news”, and how traditional journalists have handled its emergence with regards to their professional boundaries.
