ABSTRACT. Employing recent research results covering fake news content shaping the COVID-19 pandemic fear, and building my argument by drawing on data collected from Gallup, GlobalWebIndex, Knight Foundation, Ofcom, Pew Research Center, Public Knowledge, Statista, and University of Canberra, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the relationship between virus anxiety, emotional contagion, and responsible media reporting. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the collected data.
