The purpose of this paper is to investigate fake news through the tools of cultural sociology. The paper deals with the topic of fake news focusing on their narratives and hermeneutically possibilities which arise from the meanings of alternative facts. This perspective is investigated in relation to digital practices, shared belief and the polarizations of cultural meanings, amplified and offered by the Web in an increasingly accelerated way. In order to describe it I will take as a case study the wider narrative of Pizzagate.
