The prevalence and perniciousness of fake news has been a critical issue on the Internet, which stimulates the development of automatic fake news detection in turn. In this paper, we focus on the evidence-based fake news detection, where several evidences are utilized to probe the veracity of news (i.e., a claim). Most previous methods first employ sequential models to embed the semantic information and then capture the claim-evidence interaction based on different attention mechanisms. Despite…

Integrating Pattern- and Fact-based Fake News Detection via Model Preference Learning
A Preference-aware Fake News Detection Framework (Pref-FEND), which learns the respective preferences of pattern- and fact-based models for joint detection and effectively captures model preferences and improves the performance of models based on patterns, facts, or both.
Hierarchical Multi-head Attentive Network for Evidence-aware Fake News Detection
A Hierarchical Multi-head Attentive Network to fact-check textual claims is proposed, which jointly combines multi-head word-level attention and multi- head document- level attention, which aid explanation in both word- level and evidence-level.
Semi-Supervised Learning and Graph Neural Networks for Fake News Detection
This work proposes a graph-based semi-supervised fake news detection method based on graph neural networks, and results indicate that the proposed methodology achieves better performance compared to traditional classification techniques, especially when trained on limited number of labeled articles.
Graph-based Modeling of Online Communities for Fake News Detection
This work proposes a novel social context-aware fake news detection framework, SAFER, based on graph neural networks (GNNs), and introduces novel methods based on relational and hyperbolic GNNs, which have not been previously used for user or community modeling within NLP.
"Liar, Liar Pants on Fire": A New Benchmark Dataset for Fake News Detection
This paper presents liar: a new, publicly available dataset for fake news detection, and designs a novel, hybrid convolutional neural network to integrate meta-data with text to improve a text-only deep learning model.
The Rise of Guardians: Fact-checking URL Recommendation to Combat Fake News
It is found that the guardians usually took less than one day to reply to claims in online conversations and took another day to spread verified information to hundreds of millions of followers, and the proposed recommendation model outperformed four state-of-the-art models by 11%~33%.
Mining Significant Microblogs for Misinformation Identification: An Attention-based Approach
An Attention-based approach for Identification of Misinformation (AIM), which can select microblogs with largest attention values for misinformation identification based on the attention mechanism, which outperforms the state-of-the-art methods.
Towards Fine-Grained Reasoning for Fake News Detection
A fine-grained reasoning framework is proposed by following the human’s information-processing model, a mutualreinforcement-based method for incorporating human knowledge about which evidence is more important is introduced, and a prior-aware bi-channel kernel graph network is designed to model subtle differences between pieces of evidence.
DeClarE: Debunking Fake News and False Claims using Evidence-Aware Deep Learning
A neural network model that judiciously aggregates signals from external evidence articles, the language of these articles and the trustworthiness of their sources is presented, which derives informative features for generating user-comprehensible explanations that makes the neural network predictions transparent to the end-user.
Mining Dual Emotion for Fake News Detection
It is verified that dual emotion is distinctive between fake and real news and the proposed Dual Emotion Features to represent dual emotion and the relationship between them for fake news detection are well compatible and easily plugged into existing fake news detectors as an enhancement.
