Abstract

Despite the advantages and drawbacks of using social media, there is no disputing that the spread of ‘fake news’ via this medium is garnering a lot of attention and is raising concerns for both individuals and the country. Fake news has become a sickness among citizens that can harm a person’s reputation and bring down an organization. Through the use of the Framing theory developed by Erving Goffman, this study seeks to examine the strategies employed by Suara Muhammadiyah Magazine in preventing the spread of fake news and to investigate how Muhammadiyah followers perceive Suara Muhammadiyah in preventing that fake news. The descriptive narrative approach that is the main focus of this study is a qualitative research methodology. Methodologically, this study has conducted a qualitative content analysis of three (3) Suara Muhammadiyah magazines in analyzing the strategies used to combat fake news.  The findings suggest that Suara Muhammadiyah magazine has a bigger impact on how the diversity of strategies is framed in efforts to counter fake news. Every headline reveals this, even those that do not mention the fake news that circulated throughout the Indonesian election process in the year or so 2019 immediately. The results also show that Suara Muhammadiyah Magazine, which is an independent media organization that defends the truth and keeps up with the news, focuses more on how the strategy is utilized to counter fake news by embracing religious principles.
