Fresh reports is a popular Khmer-language online information outlet which has emerged for Cambodia’s transfer to hegemonic authoritarianism. Their emergence possesses paralleled a government crackdown on compartments of 3rd party media that enact the liberal democratic project. Fresh new News incorporates a particular swing integration of world financial news and data management in articulating, legitimizing, and aiming to craft support for the regime’s new notion of democracy, promoting an ongoing judicialization of mega-politics, and disseminating a task of ‘fake news’ that looks for to promote an epistemic shift.

In this posting, I use an inductive way of analyse the transcripts of formal interviews conducted when using the attendees of any day centre and their experiences with news. The effects demonstrate that 'fake news' is not merely a partisan political smear but an significant component of the socially meaningful dimension of sharing 'news'. Attendants understand the 'news' they show to one another as part of their name mainly because older people, and this contributes to a feeling of belonging within their home life context.

In light with this finding, I consider the implications of this broader sociable and epistemic significance of this post-truth second. In this sense, the term mirrors more than just a time marked simply by an erosion of truth, facticity, and civility in discourse and public your life; it also alerts the break down of modern projects of disciplining knowledge.
