FAKE NEWS IN WATUGANGGA TEXT
Hate Speech and fake news that are widely discussed today, are actually just a form of repetition. The only difference lies in the use of the media. Models like this can be traced from local wisdom in the form of texts. Such as Sisupala's utterance of hatred towards Kirina and the fake news about Aswattama's death that was raised by the Pandavas in Kakawin Bharata Yuddha. Apart from that, it can also be traced in the Watugangga text. In this text, this hate speech and fake news is used by the giant Narayama to break up the family relationship between Watugangga and his own father. Besides that, at the same time to weaken the power between them. When Watugangga became aware of himself, this backfired on the giant Narayama. Narayama died horribly because of his hate speech and fake news.
