Access to research participants was faciliated using the Cision Media Database which the researchers had access to thanks to funding received for ARC160101211 Journalism beyond the Crisis, of which this journal article is an exercept. Following the data collection process, the interview data was transcribed and written up by clustering it into four themes: perceptions of 'fake news', reasons for 'fake news', consequences of 'fake news', and counterstrategies against 'fake news'.
