This have made easy to generate intentionally false content, there exists different approaches to tackle the detection of fake news mostly of which use English texts for the analysis. We take these works as a basis to analyze and propose some attributes useful in the detection of fake news in Spanish, there exists differences in the way in which the fake news content is generated between language because of the cultural differences and the target audience.
