It has become a necessity for people to communicate with each other to complete their needs. The exchange of information conveyed in communication often cannot be directly assessed, especially online news. They just get news and are unable to filter out inappropriate stuff. The media website conveys a great deal of information. Popular news websites are one source for keeping up with the newest news. It requires a significant amount of work to deliver news on prominent websites and to choose content that is not incorrect. To crawl the web and analyse enormous data, massive computer power is required, and solutions to lower the process's space and temporal complexity must be created.Data mining is seen to be a solution to the aforementioned difficulties since it extracts particular information based on defined attributes. This research investigated a model to determine the content of false news information in Indonesian popular news. Firstly, preprocessing process from dataset that collected from keaggle. Secondly, we try use classification methods to determined which the optimal method to classify fake news. Thirdly, we use another public dataset for testing method. Furthermore, five machine learning classifiers are compared: Support Vector Machine (SVM), Logistic Regression (LR), Decision Tree Classifier (DTC), Gradient Boosting Classifier (GBC), and Random Forest (RF). These classifications are utilized independently before being compared based on receiver operating characteristic curves and accuracy. The experimental result shows that DTC has the lowest accuracy of 75.33% and SVM has the highest accuracy of 83.55%.
