The present intervention represents a review of the most significant book about fake news phenomena published in Romania so far. Within the limits of a meta-analytical reading, this review presents the subject, the thesis, the issue and the ideology of the study. We emphasize the theoretical and practical merits of the book. Among the theoretical merits, we can mention: a) the realistic presentation of the geopolitical, socio-economic, demographic and technological changes which form the background of the fake news phenomenon; b) the clarifications of the fake news concept; c) the development of the 2.0 disinformation concept. Among practical merits, we can mention the author’s proposal for finding a solution to defend ourselves from fake news, 2.0 disinformation, digital disinformation.
